Easter Craft and Activity Ideas

Fun Easter Craft and Activity ideas that you can do with your kids or that they can do independently. These ideas are easy and affordable and use items you probably already have around the home.

When my kids were little it was so much fun doing some Easter craft activities with them. They are such special memories for them and me! This year Easter falls right at the start of school holidays, so I have put together some fun and easy art and craft activities that your children can do for Easter. I have shared quite a few Easter activity ideas over the years so if you’re looking for even more inspiration, you can find them all here.

EASTER BUNNY HANDPRINTS

This is such a cute and simple craft. All you need is paper, scissors and some markers. Get your kiddos to trace the outline of their hand and then cut it out. Then they just need to turn them into bunnies! These bunny handprints would be lovely keepsakes to show how your children’s hand size changes over the years.

DECORATE EGGS FOR EASTER

Painting hard boiled eggs for Easter is a fun activity to do with your kiddos. It can be as easy an activity or as an elaborate activity as you want to make it. I suggest to just let your kids loose with some acrylic paints and the hard-boiled eggs to see what they create. Or when you boil the eggs you could add some food dye to the water so they are already pre-coloured. Find heaps of different egg decoration ideas below.

I remember as a child being fascinated by the process of preparing for the various holidays, and Easter was almost like magic to me. How many eggs were broken when I tried to make my creations… haha, it was very funny. It pleases my eye to see how today’s kids are as interested in this magic as I once was.
