5 Great Children’s Craft Ideas For The Easter Holidays

Getting crafty with your little ones is a great way to bond and, with Easter on the way, incorporating the holiday into your activities is a wonderful way to take your crafts one step further – not to mention that Easter crafts can make cute decorations.

Regardless of what Easter means to you, these simple craft ideas will inject a bit of spring into your home, whilst allowing you to while away some time doing something creative with your children. 

Peek-a-boo peg eggs

This craft idea is perfect for younger children as there is limited mess involved and it’s really quick and easy to make.

You will need:

All you need to do is cut out an egg shape (approximately 2 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide) from the glitter foam and cut through the egg in a zigzag pattern to look like it has cracked. Pinch the clothes peg open and, whilst open, attach crafter’s tape (about ¾ inch) to the top and bottom of the side where the egg is going to go, being careful not to stick it shut.

Lay the foam egg face down on a flat surface and press the sticky side of the clothes peg down onto it so that each side of the egg is on the correct side of the clothes peg. Cut out a small chick shape from the yellow paper of card, ensuring that it’s much smaller than the egg. Then, draw eyes and a beak onto the chick.

Attach the chick to the back of the clothes peg at the bottom and play with your adorable creation to your heart’s content. To see what these sweet little chicks may look like (and take a look at other craft ideas), check out this post from One Little Project. 

Felt bunny brooches

This Easter craft idea is great for older toddlers and onwards, as it can get a little bit fiddly at times. They’re perfect to wear as an accessory for an Easter party and lovely around the house as a decoration, along with being an exciting way to teach your children sewing techniques. You can watch the video tutorial on how to make these gorgeous brooches here. 

Recycled toilet roll stamps

Easy to make and a great craft accessory for all ages, bunny shaped recycled toilet roll stamps should absolutely be in your craft arsenal if not already!

You will need:

  • 3 toilet roll tubes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paper
  • Paints

Take one of the toilet roll tubes and cut them vertically. Pinch the ends that meet at the cut to a sharp point (a bit like a teardrop shape) and glue together. Repeat this on a second toilet roll tube – these will be the bunny’s ears. Glue the ears onto the remaining toilet roll tube at a 10 to 2 position.

Dip one side of the bunny shape into paint and use as a stamp. You can read the full tutorial by Thoughts From Alice here.

Fingerprint bunnies and chicks

This is perhaps the easiest craft on our list and will be ideal for children of any age, especially the younger ones. Fingerprint bunnies and chicks are a creative way to decorate Easter cards – or just about anything you want!

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Paints
  • Pens

Simply press your chosen finger (or thumb!) into your paint, press it onto your paper and, once dry, decorate the fingerprint with eyes and a beak or ears and whiskers, depending on whether you want it to be a bunny or a chick.

Chalkboard eggs

Making chalkboard eggs are a really creative way of having some Easter fun and they actually make lovely home decor items, too.

You will need:

  • A hard-boiled egg
  • A paintbrush
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Chalk

All you need to do is paint one half of a hard-boiled egg with chalkboard paint, leave to dry, then paint the other half and leave to dry. You’re then free to chalk on your egg, drawing and writing whatever you like.
