As we approach Easter we’d like to share some family fun Easter arts and crafts ideas that will keep the whole family entertained. Crafts are a great way to spice up your Easter traditions, and more importantly it keeps the kids quiet for a little while!
No need to break the bank on craft supplies – if you have some of these and you’ll be able to create something colourful and fun for the occasion..
Garlands are such a staple to any house decoration. Making them yourself just seems all the more fun, especially when it’s a joint family effort. Everyone can design and decorate their own piece of the garland. Whether it’s eggs, chicks or bunny rabbits we’re sure this garland will look perfect for your Easter celebrations.
We all know that kids get so excited to see the Easter Bunny. Making these little baskets don’t even require much. These can be great gifts and also good decorations for the house!
These bunny treat baskets can be made in two ways. The first is by using up the used toilet rolls! Decorate and colour them to your own liking and with a bit of glue and paper, you can glue a bottom to this to make it the perfect basket for their special Easter goodies!
An alternative is to use plain paper cups and decorate these as they already have a bottom on them perfect for holding plenty of sweet treats! If you can’t find plain ones, then glue bits of paper or cotton wool etc on it to make it as you like!
If you have pipe cleaners you can make a little hole on each side and feed each end through the holes making a handle for the kiddies to carry them around for their Easter egg hunt!
Paper plates are a great supply to have for kiddies arts and crafts. They can be used to make something perfect for every occasion. For Easter they will have fun making cute Easter chicks to hang on the wall or gift to granny and grandad!
For the chick wings another fun idea is for the kids to trace out the outline of their hands, cut them out, colour/paint them, and then stick them on as the chick’s wings.
A tradition I remember doing when I was a kid, just plain and simple decorating real eggs!. Make sure to hard boil them first or it could be a mess to clean up!
Decorate with lovely Easter colours and patterns to display around the house, or make it a little more fun and decorate them with funny faces which I’m sure the kids will have great fu doing!
Bring the Easter theme to Sunday dinner with some home made masks for all the family. Create your own using whatever arts and crafts supplies you have, making one for everyone at the dinner table. The kids will be delighted. You will need elastic for these to stay on heads!
We hope this gives you some Easter arts and crafts inspiration to enjoy some fun, creative time with the kiddies over the Easter holidays.
If you prefer some easier crafts that are already made and just require some decorating, the kids will enjoy these wooden DIY Easter colouring eggs that can be decorated and then displayed.
