Here are some simple, but really beautiful ideas for last minute Easter crafts.
-clear glass beads (dollar store)
Students painted the crosses with light yellow, and glued the tongue depressors together in the cross formation. They applied the clear stones with white school glue.
Water/Pop Bottle Baskets
-empty 2L pop or 1.5L water bottle
-tissue paper cut into squares
Empty bottles were cut open and the bottom was left for the base of the basket. A strip was cut from the middle of the bottle for the handle of the basket. Students adhered tissue squares all over the baskets in overlapping formations. We podged the finished baskets to make them shine.
Stained Glass Crosses (made with pasta)
-cardstock for cross
Students painted the lasagna different colors after we talked about the various colors they saw at church in the stained glass windows. We put sparkles onto the wet paint and it dried on the lasagna, giving it a glittery shine. The kids broke the lasagna into various sizes and applied them with white glue to the cross template. We podged them for a glossy finish.
