I have been missing the ocean lately. I used to live in San Diego and sometimes I just have a craving for the beach and just seeing the ocean. Keira is also obsessed with sea creatures and she loved the ocean the one time she got to visit it. I thought it would be fun for us to make some Easter eggs to decorate that look like the ocean. We made these pretty glitter ocean Easter eggs and I just love them! Any ocean lover kid or adult would love them and they are really fun for centerpieces. We went a little crazy with all of the glitter and made a big fun mess!

Thank you so much for joining me in this blog hop today! I’ve teamed up with 11 other extremely talented bloggers to share our Easter crafts on a budget. Each of us was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create an Easter inspired craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of our local stores. If you have any budget friendly Easter crafts to share, please add it to the link-up at the bottom of this post so it can be seen on all of our blogs!
Meet the Hosts!
Today I have really easy bunny cupcake with printable ears for you! The printable ears are a little bit smaller than these since these ones were about as big as the cupcakes. These little funny bunnies are adorable and very simple to make for anyone. Perfect for Easter. All I have left to figure out is an Easter basket. I made these cupcakes as simple as possible because I know how busy everyone gets with Easter egg hunts, making food and everything else for Easter. The fun thing with the printable ears is you can use them for other crafts! Use them with pom pom craft balls and googly eyes(yes, I always have to suggest googly eyes). You could also put them in an apple or any fruit to get your kids to eat some fruit! The possibilities are endless.
I feel like my blog and life needs more balloons! You will be seeing more balloons from me coming up. They are just such an easy decoration and you can make so many cute things in balloon form. Like these diy Easter chick balloons. They were incredibly simple to put together and I just love how adorable they turned out. My daughter also absolutely loves balloons. She will keep a balloon as long as possible. I have to get rid of them when she is not around or else it makes her cry. Yes, she cries a lot and her new thing is to say I am breaking her heart. You know if I threw out the milk that has gone bad it breaks her heart. Getting rid of balloons definitely breaks her heart. I actually love how sensitive she is because it took me until I was 30 to be okay with crying in front of people. She cries and is over it in a minute then off to play a game. I have also gotten very better at holding back my laughter when she is crying over a ripped piece of paper. Anyways, no one is crying when these cute chick balloons are around. At least not until they have to go back to the “farm”. They are fun for spring and of course Easter decorations.
These easy DIY bunny balloons are really easy to put together for Easter or spring. You just need the free printable and some pom pom balls to make them. I am going to be ready for Easter early. It already feels like spring or summer since it has been 90 degrees in Phoenix this week. We decorated our place with a few Easter decorations and now I am planning for what we will do on Easter. These balloons are going to be perfect for taking pictures with the kids. For the face you can also add some googly eyes and a mouth. I just kept them simple for now.
I know Easter is still a ways away but I’m getting ready for it. I saw all of the cute decorations in the dollar section at Target and decided I have to start getting ready. I thought it would be fun if leading up to Easter I put some cute Easter things in my daughters lunch. I sometimes like to make little drawings and I’m sure I will do something cute with fruit(that she wont eat). Don’t worry I’m not the mom that makes cute things every day for lunch. I typically make a regular peanut butter sandwich and call it a day. I’m not making Keira’s food into masterpieces on a daily basis, who has time for that. I thought these free printable bunny drink sleeves would be an easy and cute touch to add to milks or juices. I’m definitely going to use them for lunches and for Easter. They are just so cute to put on drinks.
Happy Friday! I am going to keep this post short and sweet. Peep and Cadbury Egg sweet ;).Sorry for the bad jokes I’m a little loopy it is past my bedtime. I like to live dangerously like that and stay up past 11. I made these fun little Easter gift tags that you can put on bags and hand out to your friends. I have some “peeps” and “chicks” in my life that I want to show some love to. Such an easy Easy Easter gift! Now I am officially ready for Easter. Luckily I got everything done a week in advance, which is something I rarely do since I am a procrastinator by nature.
We are in full on Easter prep this week! My daughter Keira is on spring break so we have some extra time for activities. Besides going out on fun adventures, I planned a few Easter crafts to get us ready for the Easter bunny. I wanted to make silly bunnies because well we are silly and appreciate some silliness(is that a word?). I was thinking of making sock bunnies or bags but I happened to have these cake boxes so I made bunny boxes. If you don’t have boxes you could use paper bags, which would look adorable! I might make some bunny bags before Easter.
My daughter Keira has really been getting excited for Easter this week. Yesterday she was wearing bunny ears around the entire day. They kept falling in her face but she insisted on keep them on. She also picked out a cute dress for Easter. It has multicolored jelly beans all over it, so cute! She has a better fashion sense than I do so I usually let her pick out what she wants to wear. Both of us love bright colors and spring is the perfect time for that. To get ready for Easter I’ve been testing out some fun and easy treats. We made bunny ear chocolate spoons and marshmallow pop bunny noses. This was so easy to put together. I like anything I can prepare with Keira so I don’t have to stay up at night getting things ready.
I just love this time of year. March is probably my favorite month because the weather is just amazing in Arizona. I have to soak it in before the heat comes. We have been decorating with flowers and getting ready for Easter. Last Easter I made these cute baby chick mini cupcakes! I made mini cupcakes to fit in the Easter eggs and because mini chick cupcakes are just too cute! I wanted something easy to make and put out during the Easter festivities.
