10 Fun Easter Craft Ideas Your Kids Will Love

Posted on: 21 March 2018

You and your children could both try making a pretty Easter wreath or an adorable lamb hat. Bunny planters are always fun to make, while Easter art is sure to create some laughs – and a bit of mess – along the way.

Here are 10 Easter craft ideas from Pinterest that the entire family can try out. For more details on how to make each one, click on the photo.

1. Easter wreath

This paper wreath is great for you and your kids to make together, and it can brighten up your home this Easter. Using an egg-shaped template, cut up different pieces of patterned and colourful paper and stick onto card backgrounds. Glue the pieces in a circle and attach ribbon to hang.

2. Spring suncatchers

Make these pretty Easter suncatchers by gluing triangles of colourful tissue paper onto transparent card and then framing into fun Easter shapes, like a bunny or egg outline.

3. Easter art

eware – this one can get messy! Fill hollow egg shells with bright paint of different colours. Carry the eggs into the garden, set up a white canvas and let your kids create some bold modern art by smashing the paint-filled eggs against the white background.

4. Bunny planters

Kids will love creating these cute planters. Gather white and pink felt, googly eyes and a pom pom, and attach to a white spray-painted tin can to make the bunny. Fill the tin with earth and daffodils – the perfect spring-time flower.

5. Chick puppets

 

Easter and chicks go hand in hand, so why not create some fun chick puppets with your children? You'll need yellow paint, white and orange card, googly eyes, jumbo straws and yellow craft feathers. Once made, your kids can put on an Easter show.

 

6. Sock bunnies

To make these cute Easter sock bunnies, fill a pair of socks with rice, and fasten with clear elastic bands. To decorate, stick on googly eyes, felt, ribbon and a pom pom tail.

7. Little lamb hat

You'll need a fair amount of cotton wool balls for this crafty project as you'll be creating a fluffy sheep hat. Take an old sun hat and glue on the cotton wool over the headpiece of the hat. Stick on some black card for the face, googly eyes and colourful flowers on the base. Your kids will want to wear this throughout the Easter holidays!

8. Easter tree

Decorate your Easter tree with lots of colourful fabric and thread by wrapping it around the twigs and branches. You can also hang ornaments, sweets and decorative Easter pieces from the tree.

9. Button Easter egg

It may not be made out of chocolate but this egg is certainly pretty. Assemble lots of colourful buttons and glue into place on card in the shape of an Easter egg. Your kids can decide what pattern to make, whether in stripes, spots or just random.

10. Sweet baskets

Easter tends to be a time when lots of chocolate and sweets are eaten. So how about making a cute little basket for treats? Get some orange and green card, and form into little carrot baskets.
