the easiest card i know is to make an Easter chick.
fold an A4 sheet of card in half.
cut out an oval of yellow paper for the body (depending on the age of the children you with they could draw round a template for themselves and cut this out).
for the wings, fold some more yellow paper in half and draw round the child's hand (fingers open), again they could cut out for themselves. if the children are too young, perhaps printing paint hand prints.
pre cut stips for the legs and fat 'w' shapes for feet, encourage the children to assemble.
add a beak and eyes!

I would love any new ideas for Easter crafts for children 4-12 years old. My problem is I work in a prison with visiting children and have lots of restrictions ie no scissors, no playdough
Any ideas please help

Just a thought, if you drew or had ovals to draw round onto card, then tear up strips of different coloured tissue paper, dip into pva and mould/lay over the ovals to create a slightly 3D egg.
Can also do this but onto laminated card then when the pva is dried peel off the resulting plastified work which is very pretty against a window as it is slightly transparent. Could do this to make chicks or chickens building up initial shapes from circles, triangles and ovals etc. You've got me going now.... I might even do this!

Thought I would share this observation I did on a child aged 3.5 yrs. When asked ( by me) to make a Mothers day card with the learning intention of 'why' we send Mothers day cards, ( think about why we love Mum and show her by giving a card), plus of course creative expression.
The observation shows that he did comply to the adult request to make a card, and participated in what Ofsted would call 'purposeful play', however always in the back of his mind he really wanted to make something for his dad, his intentions where distracted by the materials on offer not the purpose of the activity.
After 30 minutes he returned to his own plans/ intentions and made his dad a card. I wonder what the observation would have shown if he was able to make his dads card first, would the discussion on parent/child love and relationships have been more focused? His 'creative expression' may have been more meaningful to him too. We may never know because this activity was adult led in terms of purpose.
I was impressed with his ability and determination to complete what he initially intended / wanted to do, showing that he could sit and 'work' for a long period of time, to achieve his own set goals.
