Where did March go? I feel like I blinked and National Craft Month was over and we hopped right along to Easter and National Crayon Day. This week on my Crayola Facebook live Broadcast I am sharing 3 easy crafts for the kiddos! 

Tune in every Tuesday at 1:00pm EST on the Crayola Facebook Page for 3 fun crafts for the whole family! 

All the Crayola craft supplies I used in the projects below can be found on crayola.com

Project 1: Easter Tree Ornaments

I have been decorating the same Easter tree since I was little. This very tree that you see has grown with me. It got a little makeover this year but has been in my family for decades and I am excited to pass it along to my girls.
