This month’s craft round up is a collection of Easter craft ideas for kids of all ages. As Easter is approaches it’s time to think of fun activities and crafts for the whole family. Everyone in our family is exhausted after just 2 weeks back at school!
Easter should be a time to relax, start to gradually spend time with family and have a little fun. With that in mind we have compiled a collection of Easter crafts for kids. And also a little inspiration for us Mums and Dads. Hey crafting should be just for kids right? Also check out these gorgeous spring fairy crafts for some extra spring inspiration.
Easter craft ideas for kids, and a few for parents too!
Easter crafts for younger children
Susan K Mann has created a wonderful collection of easy to make Easter animals. The great thing about these cuties is they can easily be made with things from around the home or lurking in the craft cupboard. There’s nothing better than re-using and recycling is there?
Louse and Sophie over at Little Hearts Big Love have created these hanging egg decorations with a religious feel. I know this is something important to Louise and love how she has incorporated it into her crafting. The decorations are made of foam so make a great sensory multi textured Easter craft idea for children.
Sheep are a huge part of spring, living in the countryside we are mid lambing season which is just glorious. So when I saw these handprint sheep from Sarah at Whimsical Mumblings, I just had to include them. It’s such a simple but effective Easter craft that kids will adore.
If your kids love animal crafts they will adore these Easter chick bubble wrap plates created by Anna from In The Play Room. Paper plates are a perfect base for crafting, hence having a supply ready to go to create these cuties is a the perfect way to keep the kids engaged during the holidays.
Its always worth keeping and re using household rubbish, and I love how Jenny from the Gingerbread House has create these cute Easter Chicks out of recycled cardboard. Kids are so aware of sustainability so its a great way to practice it at home too.
Another great project from Eva at Captain Bobcat, this time using recycled paper is this recycled hanging Easter egg garland. I love how people are so resourceful, using old magazines and newspaper to make bright colourful decorations.
Easter Crafting On The Go
And Jenny from Travelynn Family although a travel blogger, wanted to share a craft she loves to create with her boys on the road in their Bongo.
This super simple Easter craft activity using A clothes peg, card, colouring pens / pencils, blue tac and scissors. Draw an egg shape on your paper card (about the size of a Cadbury Cream Egg), colour it in and cut it out. Then draw a crack across the middle and cut this out too. Next draw and colour a small 20 pence sized chick, colour it in and cut it out.
Using the blue tac, place the bottom half of the egg on the bottom finger of the peg, and the top half of the egg on the top finger of the peg. Stick the chick on the back side of the bottom finger of the peg so that it looks like it is popping out of the bottom half of the egg when the peg opens.
Open and close your peg to watch the chick hatch! This can also be adapted for other creatures. My boys also created dinosaur and robot eggs!
Easter Craft Ideas To Make Cards And Gifts
Creating your own Easter cards and gifts is so much more rewarding and I love these super cute Easter Bunny cards and gift jars created by Maria from Suburban Mum. They are so simple but effective.
Additionally, whilst we are chatting Easter gifts I have created dinosaur and castle cream egg holders. These are perfect to make cream eggs look a little bit more special. I have teenagers, and even they got excited about these! They also make great additions to any Easter egg hunt.
