Easter Crafts for Kids
The whole family will enjoy making these easy and fun DIY Easter ideas for kids!
There are Easter bunnies everywhere! These adorable masks can be made in any color, so every kid can have his or her favourite. How cute will this year’s Easter photos be?
Washi tape is all the rage. If you or the kids don’t already have Washi tape around the house, it is available at most crafts stores. Simply wrap it around hard-boiled eggs. Cover the white with floral or glittery Washi tape.
Chick in an Egg
This craft might be a little bit messy, but a whole lot of fun! Make a chick out of two yellow pom-poms. The face is made of felt and fabric paint. Place the chick into a pre-stretched balloon. Inflate the balloon and coat it in cooking spray. Coat colored string in glue and wrap it around the inflated balloon. After the string dries, pop the balloon to remove it.
Pom-Pom Bunny Garland
Upcycle old Manila folders and scrapbooking scraps into an Easter garland. Oversized pom-poms become bunny faces, mounted on fun colors and patterns. These bunnies are created for a 360 view.
There will be bunnies hopping all over the brunch table. Sheets of colorful cardstock form the base of the bunny faces. The tiny pink noses are the cutest finishing touch.
Older kids will love crafting these bunnies! Apply strips of double-stick tape to plastic eggs. Starting at the top, wrap the egg in white yarn until fully covered. Tuck end in. Cut felt shapes to make the ears, feet, and eyes (use black marker for the dots on the eyes); glue to egg. Cut pieces of fishing line and glue to egg for whiskers. Glue a small pink pom-pom for a nose and a medium white pom-pom for the tail.
To make these precious Easter bunny ears, help your kids cut ears from stiff white felt. Adhere pink felt inner ears using glue. Run a line of hot glue along the ears’ bottom edges and stick them onto a headband, holding them in place until they dry.
Easter Egg Balloons
Give your kids a fun surprise on Easter morning by filling a closet or wardrobe with specially decorated balloons the night before. Choose pastel latex balloons and inflate. Apply brightly colored paints in stripe and polka-dot patterns and let dry.
Paper Strip Nest
Time to upcycle! Instead of just trashing your shredded paper, use it to form pretty nests. If most of your shredded paper is boring and white, shred some scrapbooking paper in fun colors or patterns. Place them into a little ball. Place an egg, monogrammed with a sticker) into the center to form a nest. Celebrate Easter the best way—with brunch! We’re sharing a stunning setup and so-easy recipes. Featuring glittery eggs and a washi tape flower wall, this easy party proves you can throw a gorgeous Easter brunch on a budget. Get simple DIY projects and pretty recipes—everything you need to celebrate Easter is right here.
Pipe Cleaner Bunnies
These eggs are transformed into literal cotton tails. Hard-boiled eggs are quickly turned into cute little bunnies. Hot glue a colorful pom-pom to be a bunny tail. Then wrap a pipe cleaner around the egg, looping the ends into ears, twisting them together. Use a thin permanent marker to draw the face.
Hmmm…carrots aren’t usually candy-filled. But let’s make an exception for Easter. These easy to make DIY carrot basket is the perfect candy container. These carrot baskets are the cutest Easter treat bags ever! Our free template makes them so easy to make, and we’re obsessed with how fun the green tissue paper carrot top is—plus, it’s filled with candy!
Easy Painted Easter Eggs
This egg-dyeing idea proves you don’t have to paint perfectly in order to get a beautiful result. After putting down a drop cloth or vinyl tablecloth, let your kids choose paint colors to swirl together and apply to eggs. You’ll end up with unique, ombre-effect eggs to be proud of.
Lightbulb Lamb Figurines
Upcycle burnt-out lightbulbs into precious little lambs. Paint a standard lightbulb white and let dry. Add a face with pink paint, then add more facial features with black and white paint. Wrap the metal screw top with white yarn to give the sheep a hat, then glue on black pom-poms for the feet and finish with a bow. Let kids decorate their lambs with other crafty embellishments, such as glitter or paint if desired.
