Fun and Easy Easter Craft for Kids

I know it’s a little early to talk Easter, but I like to get a head start on planning for big holidays. The other day I found a great Easter project I’m going to do with my daughter. These jelly bean flower pots are an easy project that your kids can actually do by themselves!

 You will need:
- Clay flower pot (any size you like)
- Acrylic paint (optional, any color)
- Jelly beans
- Decorative Easter grass (any color)

Paint the pot in a festive Easter color if you like. When the pot is dry, put in some decorative Easter grass. A good fluffy layer at the bottom should do the trick. I got pots the size of a small teacup, but almost any size works. Next, fill the pot almost to the top with jellybeans. Add a bit more Easter grass to the top of the jelly beans, so that it peeks through the top. Finish the look with another small handful of jelly beans to hold the second layer of grass in place. That’s it – you’re done!

Like any good craft project, this one has endless possibilities. You can use small pots as individual place settings or one big pot for a pretty Easter table centerpiece. Use different colors to fit a certain theme or tablecloth. Just have fun with it! Best of all, this craft is a tasty treat!
