With Easter comes a whole opportunity to decorate the house and get into the spirit of things with crafts and egg hunts. I already have a few things planned but the blogging community is always great for thinking up brilliant activities, aren’t they?
Easter craft ideas
Crafts with little ones need to be super easy, so here are some great ideas to get you started…
Other easy to prepare ideas are these, with a paper plate craft from Someone’s Mum and some finger puppet bunnies from Susan K Mann. If you have a bit more time then these pipe cleaner puppets are so cute from Quite Frankly She Said.
If you are wanting to make an Easter gift for someone, these daffodils from Hodge Podge Days are so cute and really simple to make. She also has some really lovely suncatchers if you have an older tot with a love for all things sparkly!
If you like the idea of suncatchers but have a younger tot then these are a twist on the idea from The Gingerbread House. Another way to spruce up the house for Easter is with some bunting – I am definitely going to try this idea from hello beautiful bear and the girls will like this version from Hodge Podge Days too.
Something I have wanted to try for a while now is an Easter tree and Glossytots has a simple way to get toddlers involved in creating their own decorations.
Easter wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt or two and I love that you can get the kids involved by making their own eggs. Beauties and the Bibs has an easy way to get started, plus lots of other Easter crafts to try too.
Other Easter fun ideas
Easter isn’t just about crafts, there are plenty of other ways to have fun too!
Toddlers love sensory play, don’t they? Playdough is always a hit and this has an Easter twist from The Ladybirds’ Adventures. Thimble and Twig has a squishy craft that would be perfect for a bit of messy fun too.
There are so many play ideas here from Messy Blog, enough to keep you busy for the whole Easter period I think!
Baking is always fun with little ones and these Easter bunny biscuits from Free From Farmhouse look delicious! I also like the look of these Easter buckets from Ninja Killer Cat and these marbled eggs from incredibusy would make for a great Easter picnic treat!
So many great ideas, aren’t there? Do let me know if you have any other Easter themed ideas for little ones – I have 2 weeks to fill up over the Easter holidays!
I will be back next month with outdoor play ideas – fingers crossed the weather starts to warm up by then!
