6 Easter Craft Ideas for You and Your Kids to Enjoy
Easter arts and crafts are great fun for kids, and there are plenty of things you can suggest to get them in the mood for the coming Easter holiday. Here are 6 activities that kids will love.
One of the simplest activities for kids is colouring. The internet can provide a huge number of different pages for you to print out, ready for your little ones to fill with colour.
Your kids are probably getting really excited about the Easter Bunny and their egg hunt on Easter Sunday, but why not make use of Easter arts and crafts to help get ready for the hunt? Each child can make their own Easter basket ready to collect the eggs on the day. There are many ways to go about this: you could buy small baskets and get them to decorate them with ribbons and paper flowers, or they can make the baskets from scratch with card.
This is a firm favourite when it comes to Easter arts and crafts, and it isn't too difficult either. You'll need to hard boil some eggs and let them cool, before giving them to your kids to decorate however they like. This could mean dying them (food colouring comes in handy here) or colouring them with crayons and painting. You can then display the eggs proudly around the home!
Kids love dressing up, but instead of buying them ready made bunny ears for Easter, why not turn it into a craft project and have them make their own? These are really easy to make when you use cardboard. You'll just need some white card for the ears and the headband, and pink ears to stick on for the inside of the bunny ears. Simply cut out white ears and smaller pink ears to glue inside them. Then create a headband with more of the white card. Your kids can decorate the ears if they want to.
There are many ways to go about making an Easter nest, but the most simple is to use different sized circles of card, pushed inside a round container and glued with each layer. The layering helps to create the effect of a nest, and you can remove the nest from the container once the glue dries. You can put chicks inside the nest, or use decorative or small chocolate eggs.
Edible Easter Nests
This makes for a fun craft project and a tasty treat for the kids! Simply coat cereal in melted chocolate and arrange it in a nest shape in a suitable container. You can put chocolate mini eggs into the top of the nest to top it off. It's so simple yet fun!
