Easter is a time for crafting, both by myself and with my kids (I do a fair bit of both). Crafting makes for a wonderful bonding activity, and there is no better time than the holidays to share some artistic fun with your children.

A couple of our favorite projects this year have included making an Easter basket out of paper and making a bunny out of a sock.

I wanted to see if I could come up with anything super easy and creative to do with my youngest kids, and thought of the idea of turning plastic spoons into Easter crafts. Check out the video!
