Top 10 Easter craft ideas for kids

Easter kids list

Crafting with kids is fun at any time of the year, but we especially love it when there's a special occasion or holiday coming up. Here, we’ve chosen ten of our favourite kid’s craft ideas for Easter; from paper crafting to painting, with all kinds of wonderfully messy and creative play ideas in between! If you’re hunting for fun activities for kids this Easter, you’ve come to the right place...

Pompom Easter Chics

Pom pom Easter Chics Prima

How cute are these fluffly little fellas?! If your kids love to get crafty with yarn or have a soft spot for Easter chics, this is a great project that you can enjoy together.

Head over to Prima to try the project: http://www.prima.co.uk/craft/easy-craft-ideas/news/a22196/easter-chicks-pompoms/

Easter Egg-cessories

We love these paper hats and other accessories and the best part about this project is that kids can get creative with their own egg! Whether they want to add a big pink bow or patterned pointy hat, as long as these eggs have got a big smile, we think they'll look great! Watch the video above for the project.

Easter Bunny Spoon Puppets

Easter Bunny Spoon Puppets - HobbyCraft

These friendly faces are made using general craft bits and bobs and a wooden spoon - it couldn't be simpler! We love their big felt ears and think they'd make great friends to help little ones hunt for Easter eggs.

Handprint Chick Puppets

Handprint Chick Puppets Kids Craft Room

This cute Easter craft project is perfect for kids that love getting their hands messy and want to practice cutting and sticking! Kids can carry these chicks around with them on the Easter egg hunt and we think they'd make great characters for an Easter puppet play!

Origami Mini Egg Boxes

These origami boxes are a great way for kids to practice their paper folding skills and this simple step-by-step video will help them through the folds. No doubt their favourite bit will be filling the boxes with mini chococlate eggs... or perhaps it will be emptying them? Watch the video for the full project.

Egg-Heads with Cress Hair

Egg Heads with Cress Hair Nuture Store 

How adorable are these egg heads? We love their goggly eyes and fun cress hair-dos and think they're a great way for kids to learn a bit about growing plants as well as getting creative!

Paper Plate Chicks

Paper Plate Chicks Red Ted Art

We think these paper plate chicks are such a clever idea and it's a brilliant way of introducing children to sewing! For younger children, you can cut out the middle of the plate and punch the holes around the shape so that their little fingers can just focus on weaving the yarn in and out.

Easter Bunny Cupcakes

Cupcake decorating can be a great way for kids to get creative and this cute marzipan bunny is surprisingly simple to make! You could buy cupcakes that are ready to decorate or get the kids in the kitchen for some Easter holiday baking first. Watch the video to see how to make this cute Easter bunny and the tasty little carrots too!

Doily Sheep

Doily Sheep Easy Peasy and Fun

While sheep aren't really an Easter animal, the little lambs are definitely a sign of spring and we couldn't help but include this lovely project in our round up of craft ideas for kids! Using a doily and some black paper, this is such a simple idea and it looks so cute - we think kids will love to make these sheep after seeing the lambs in the fields over Easter.

Recycled Easter Bunny

Recycled Easter Bunny

These cute little cardboard rabbits are made using an old egg carton. It's such a fun way to teach kids about recycling and we think they make great decorations for the Easter table too!
