With all of the kids home and nowhere to travel for Easter this weekend, it’s up to me to create the Easter magic this year! To keep us busy and help everyone to feel the spirit of spring, I’ve been searching for fun Easter crafts to keep us busy this week!
There are so many Easter activities and crafts on Pinterest, it was hard to narrow down the ones I wanted to do this year. I’ll link the crafts I decided to attempt to create with my kids this week, so you can check them out, too.
Easter Crafts for Younger Kids
These crafts are great to do with your younger kids. They are easy enough for them to have fun and be able to do most of the craft on their own!
I love this classic paper plate Easter bunny craft. Who remembers making things like this when you were a kid? There’s nothing better than gluing cotton balls to a paper plate, right?
I love the idea of using Q-Tips to paint on these paper Easter eggs. The Q-Tips are easier for little hands to grasp and paint with, so they won’t get frustrated as easily as they can with a larger paintbrush. Even older kids would enjoy creating cool designs with the Q-Tips on these paper eggs.
This is another great craft that little kids will love and older kids will enjoy, too. Grab those scraps of tissue paper you’ve saved for years in those gift bags you’ve got stashed somewhere. Let your kids have a blast cutting them up and gluing them onto some paper eggs!
Easter Fun for Older Kids
These Easter crafts are great for older kids to work on without your help, or you can help your younger kids to do these, too!
I’ve always wanted to make these no sew Easter bunnies. Aren’t they so cute? Bonus- you have a use for the socks without mates that seem to multiply when you’re not looking! Or, if you need an excuse to do a Target order, grab some cute Easter socks to use in this fun Easter craft.
I love how these Easter egg weavings look. They will be so pretty hung up on the wall, or you could even make them large enough to be used as placemats on Easter Sunday!
This craft is a little more involved than the others on my list. But, I’m still going to attempt this with my kids! I love how it looks when it’s done, especially with multicolor yarn.
Play with your food
I love these cute easter crafts that are done with food! I don’t know about all kids, but mine love to make treats in the kitchen for holidays. These are easy enough for the kids to do, but also really cute to look at!
Do you love Peeps? Even if you don’t love how they taste, you have to admit they are a super cute Easter candy! I love how these Peeps houses are made out of wafer cookies. Yum!
If you can’t find wafer cookies, here is a Peeps house Easter craft that’s made with graham crackers! These would be so cute lined up on the table for Easter Sunday, don’t you think?
Rice Krispie Treats are so versatile. They are really easy to make with your kids, and they will love turning them into bird nests!
Don’t let the Easter Bunny forget about you!
Don’t forget about your own Easter basket when you fill your kids’ baskets! I made this basket for myself last year, and I still love everything I put in it. Check it out at the link below!
I can’t wait to get started on these Easter crafts with my kids this week. I’m sad that we can’t go and visit family and friends this year, but we can still have fun at home!
