Easter is just around the corner, which means it’s time for kids to start thinking about Easter craft ideas to do during the holiday. If your child is interested in crafts, there are plenty of fun and easy DIY projects you can do together that are perfect for a weekend away from home.
Fun and Easy Crafts for Kids
Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and enjoy family time. While there are many things to do, making crafts is always a fun option for kids. Here are some easy and fun Easter craft ideas for kids:
Easter Egg Dyeing
This is one of the many great Easter craft ideas for kids of all ages. All you need is some eggs, food coloring, and water.
Step 1: Simply crack the eggs into a bowl and add the desired amount of food coloring.
Step 2: Use a spoon to stir until the eggs are completely colored.
Step 3: Pour the dyed eggs into small containers or mason jars and store them in a cool place until ready to use.
You can also paint the eggshells using Fusion Mineral Paint! Just ensure to boil the eggs before painting to prevent unexpected egg yolks accidents. We recommend using Milk Paints for the best coverage.
Easter Egg Rocks
If you don’t have eggs at your disposal, try scavenging for oval-shaped rocks with your kids! They make for the perfect substitute for real Easter eggs!
Step 1: Paint some rocks a different color and make them look like Easter eggs.
Step 2: Make a bunch of small egg-shaped rocks out of clay or modeling clay.
Step 3: Use an adhesive to attach colorful feathers, bunnies, and other Easter accessories to the rocks.
Easter Egg Nests
You can also make Easter egg nests using small plastic cups or plastic spoons as nesting materials. Just fill the cups or spoons with eggs, then put them in a basket or on a table. Kids will love playing Easter egg hunt inside the nests!
Try making colorful easter egg nests with your kids using the Fusion Mineral Paint Tempera kit!
Easter Egg Wreath
To make this project, cut a piece of wire mesh about 18 inches in diameter. Thread Easter eggs onto the wire mesh, making sure to leave enough space between each egg so that it can be wrapped around the mesh. Bend the ends of the wire mesh up to form a circle, and tie it in place with a piece of yarn or ribbon.
Easter Egg Centerpiece
You can make a centerpiece out of an Easter egg cart or nest, or individual eggs and put them on display.
You can also paint or decorate the cart yourself or buy one that’s already decorated. Once it’s ready, fill it with all sorts of Easter eggs – from small ones that you can put in cup holders to giant ones that you can place on the floor. Add fresh flowers, if desired.
String Egg Garlands
This simple Easter garland is another perfect holiday craft! The kids will love helping too! For this project, you’ll need:
- 12-inch balloons, 7-8 pieces
- Multi-colored pastel yarn
- Glue soaked in water (2 parts glue, 1 part water)
- Sponge or paintbrush
Step 1: Inflate your balloons until they’re about 6 inches tall to give them a slight egg shape.
Step 2: Soak the balloon with the glue-water mixture using a paintbrush or a sponge.
Step 3: Using yarn, tie it to the balloon knot first, then start wrapping it around the balloon base randomly. Wrap around as much multi-colored yarn as you want!
Step 4: Generously dab the strings with the glue-water mixture again and let dry.
Step 5: Pop the balloon and get the deflated balloon parts out of the yarn mesh. And it’s done!
Easter Bunny Toilet Paper Rolls
Kids love Easter Bunny toilet paper rolls! They are a fun and easy craft project that your kids will love to do. You need some toilet paper rolls, colorful pipe cleaners, cardstock, colored paper, glue, a black Sharpie, and some scissors.
Step 1: Cut the ends off the toilet paper rolls to approximately 12 inches long, then paint them white. We recommend using Lamp White to give your rolls that neutral white color.
Step 2: To make the bunny ears, trace out the ears on cardstock and then make an ear insert with colored paper.
Step 3: Then, twist three pipe cleaners together and glue them to the paper roll.
Step 4: Draw eyes on the toilet paper roll, and your bunnies are complete!
