Easter is just around the corner! So, it is time to start thinking about the perfect Easter craft ideas for primary grades. Since students are so excited for the Easter Bunny to visit, they are always eager to see what their teacher plans. Thankfully, there are amazing options that combine a fun celebration with learning. Between the April Math Puzzles and the Directed Drawing Bundle, students will love celebrating in their classroom!
Selecting Easter Crafts
When selecting Easter crafts for primary grades, I always focus on ones that are manageable. They need to be easy to prepare while focusing on fun and engagement. Additionally, it is important that they work either in a large group or in a small group with a helping parent. On top of this, it is important to have resources that are budget-friendly. So, let’s explore some amazing options that fit all of these important aspects!
Learning through Crafts
Every minute is crucial in the classroom. So, I love to combine learning with crafts. This allows students to enjoy themed activities without losing valuable instructional minutes.
Students love puzzles! So, these no-prep, hands-on differentiated math and writing puzzles are perfect for April!
Students will work on self-checking math puzzles. Specifically, this includes 4 puzzles with 6 differentiated versions. Students will begin by solving problems based on various math skills, such as addition, subtraction, and mixed equations. Then, they will self-check by placing the piece to solve the puzzle. If the numbers do not match, students know it is an incorrect answer. If the numbers match, students will see an April-themed picture come alive, such as a bunny and a chick.
In addition to the puzzles, there are journal writing pages. Students will be amazed to see math and writing come together. Additionally, there are Color by Number pictures for early finishers.
This bundle of over 60 Directed Drawing and Writing worksheet activities is perfect to include throughout the year. When planning Easter crafts ideas for primary grades, there are amazing options. This includes an Easter bunny picture, a baby bird nest, and a butterfly. There are multiple options for every season and holiday to ensure there is something for everyone!
Every design includes step-by-step directions for students to follow. Additionally, many crafts include videos to help students watch each step while teachers walk around to help.
After completing their pictures, students can also work on their writing. There are 10 differentiated options to ensure that ALL students can work on the same drawing lesson at many writing levels. For instance, there are templates with sentence starters and one with more open responses for advanced writers. Students will love Directed Drawing activities!
Easter is such an exciting time of the year! The weather is finally warming up, and the Easter Bunny is preparing for a visit. Thankfully, the April Math Puzzles and Directed Drawing Bundle are ready to ensure you have plenty of Easter craft ideas for primary!
