Guide to: Easy Easter craft ideas for kids

Making crafts is a great way to occupy children through the holidays and Easter is a great excuse to get creative! These simple craft ideas are great to create some cute Easter items:

arts and crafts

Clothespin Bunnies

What you’ll need:

  • Wooden Pegs/Clothespins
  • Glue
  • White Acrylic Paint
  • Pink Permanent Marker
  • Black Gel Pen
  • Small Bead (for the nose)
  • Bakers Twine

Start by removing the metal spring from the clothespin and gluing the two sides together. Once the glue is fully dry paint the entire clothes pin with white paint.

Once the paint is dry, use pink market to draw on the ears and rosy cheeks. You can add a thin layer of glue before using the black gel pen to make sure it doesn’t run, but it’s not necessary. Then use the gel pen to draw the bunny features (eyes, whiskers, paws etc).

Next tie the twine in a bow around the bunny’s ‘neck’ – there are small grooves in the peg which should allow for this. Use the glue to fix a small bead onto the bunny’s nose and you’re done!

Now you have cute little Easter bunnies to play with!

Cupcake Liner Flowers

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Regular Cupcake Liner
  • 1 Mini Cupcake Liner
  • 1 Lolly Pop Stick (Green or you can paint it)
  • Sticky Jewel for the centre
  • Double sided Tape
  • Green Paper
  • Scissors

Start by choosing two cupcake liners, you can use different colours for the two sizes. Then flatten them out a little. Fold the liners in half 4 times (to create 8 petals). Using scissors, cut a curve into the edge of the cupcake liner low enough so the petals are distinct.

Stick the two cupcake liners together with the smallest at the front using double sided tape. Arrange them so the petals are facing forward and place the jewel in the centre.

Cut two leaves from the green paper, folding them down the centre so they appear 3D. Use the tape to attach the leaves to the back of the lolly pop stick and then attach the stick to the back of the flower.

Now you have some pretty spring flowers to brighten up your day!

Pom Pom Chicks

What you’ll need:

  • Yellow yarn
  • Googly Eyes
  • Orange Felt
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue (and an Adult)

To make the pom pom begin wrapping the yarn around three fingers, you need a nice thick amount as this makes them fluffier! Once you have enough yarn, slip it off your fingers and tie a knot around the centre to hold the loops in place. Using a pair of scissors cut through the loops at either end of the tie. Now you have a pom pom! It may look wonky so trim the edges with scissors until it more closely resembles a pom pom.

Now it’s time for the glue so make sure there is an adult around to perform this task! Glue two googly eyes onto the pom pom. Using the felt, cut a ‘bunny ear’ shape to use as feet and glue these to the underneath of the pom pom. Cut a small triangle from the felt and glue on as the beak.

There you go! Now you have cute fluffy Easter chicks!
