I’ve mentioned before that I don’t decorate much for holidays, but one thing I do like to do for each big holiday is spend some time crafting with my kids. I like projects that are fairly easy and don’t require tons of supplies. I’ve found tutorials for 20 adorable Easter crafts that are simple enough for kids AND cute enough to double as Easter decor. Here they are:
1. These adorable glitter dot eggs from Parents Magazine are so easy they’re foolproof – just add glue dots to your eggs and roll in glitter. From Parents Magazine.
2. These cute sheep can be made with supplies from the dollar store. From Spoonful.
3. Creativity in Progress has a great idea for using up some of those extra plastic eggs – glue buttons on the bottom, decorate with glitter glue, and use them as teacups!
4. For a mess free alternative to dyeing eggs, try this easy temporary tattoo version, with free LEGO printables:
5. My older kids love origami, and mixing origami with candy is even better. Check out this fun project from Oh So Very Pretty:
6. Little kids would have a great time painting beads, and they’ll be thrilled to see the beads transformed into friendly little chicks. Idea from Spoonful:
7. This beautiful coloring page from Mr. Printables will keep kids happy for hours:
8. Print out the cutting guide onto card stock, trim as directed, and use the shapes to make three different bunnies (and anything else you can imagine!) with this fun tangram craft from Spoonful:
9. I love these sock bunnies from A Pumpkin and a Princess:
10. Washi tape makes this craft colorful, and a card stock template makes it simple. From eHow:
11. These rope wrapped eggs from SAS does would be better suited for older kids since they take a little it of patience, but they’re simply lovely.
12. Even your youngest kids will be able to put together these cute baby chicks from simple as that:
13. These delicate eggs from Yankee Magazine are made with balloons, string, and homemade flour paste, and I’d have as much fun as my kids making them:
14. Craft and treat all in one, these rice krispy eggs will delight any child. Find instructions at Make Life Special.
15. Pastel Sharpies make it easy to decorate eggs – younger kids can add dots and scribbles, while older kids can use the examples from mom.me to draw cute little animals.
16. These washcloth bunnies from That’s What Che Said look extremely easy to make:
17. Circle and heart shaped paper punches made these paper bunnies from Lisa Moorefield simple to assemble. Glue one to the top of a paper clip to make a cute Easter bookmark.
18. This pretty candy wreath from Country Living requires hot glue, so either do the glueing yourself and let your kids sort the candies, or get an inexpensive cool temp glue gun that the kids can use.
19. Peeps houses – sooooo cute! Great idea from Kasey Buick:
20. These cute little “eggimals” from Spoonful just take plastic eggs, felt, glue, and a black marker to make. Older kids will have a great time copying the examples or coming up with their own creations.
