Get your kids in the spirit of Easter and spring with these simple and adorable paper plate Easter Crafts!
“Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.” – Janine di Giovanni
Easter is about rebirth or resurrection; it’s about starting afresh, which coincides perfectly with the season of Spring when new baby animals are born and new flowers bloom. This is probably why Easter is associated with motifs of baby chicks, lambs, and hatching eggs. So it’s only fitting that we celebrate the spirit of the season and the festival with some equally cute crafts!
Today, we’ve got a list of paper plate Easter crafts, so if you have old paper plates lying around, this is the perfect opportunity to turn them into something beautiful!
