3 fun easter crafting ideas
Posted on April 07 2022
Easter is just around the corner, and as making and creating together is a wonderful way to spend time with your little ones, we’ve put together three fun Easter crafting activities to try over the holidays…
1. Make your own Easter decorations
We’ve seen Easter decorations become more and more popular over recent years, with some people even celebrating with an ‘Easter tree’! Why not make your own Easter decorations this year? Egg blowing is such an easy way to create cute Easter decorations you can use year after year, you just have to be careful when storing them so they don’t break.
To blow your own Easter egg decorations you will need:
- A bowl
- A needle, a pin, toothpick or straightened out paperclip
- Eggs (not cooked)
- Masking tape
- Soap and water
Step 1 - Put a small piece of tape over both ends of the egg to help stop it from cracking when you poke the holes. Take a needle or straight pin and poke a hole in the top (skinnier end) through the tape. Wiggle the pin around to make the hole a bit wider than the pin to help break up the yolk inside the egg.
Step 2 - Flip your egg over your bowl and poke a second hole in the other end of the egg, make this hole bigger than the one on top, as this is where all the eggy insides will come out.
Step 3 - Put your fingers over both holes on the egg and shake the egg, so all the yolk is broken up - this will make it liquidy enough to all come out.
Step 4 - Once you can hear all the egg sloshing around, hold the egg over your bowl and blow the top hole on the egg. Make sure you make a good seal with your mouth, it can be hard to blow it all out, you can shake again and repeat until the egg shell is completely empty.
Step 5 - Wash and dry your egg, then you are ready to decorate with paints! Masking tape your string to the top of your egg first, so you can paint over this, ready to hang as an Easter decoration.
2. Make your own Easter cards
Making Easter cards is an easy, enjoyable crafting activity for Easter - family and friends will love receiving your little one’s handmade creations.
You will need:
- A4 Card
- Pencils and Pens
- Double sided sticky tape
Step 1 - Fold your A4 card in half to create your greeting card.
Step 2 - Choose your Easter card design - a bunny, an Easter egg or maybe a chick!
Step 3 - Draw out your Easter design or print out an Easter template to use to draw out your design.
Step 4 - Decorate your Easter design with felt pens, cut out bits of felt to add texture, add buttons to add features and stick these onto your design.
Step 5 - Cut out your Easter design and stick onto your folded A4 greeting card and add an Easter message of your choice such as ‘Happy Easter’ or ‘It’s Easter time’.
3. Make an Easter egg hunt collection cone
Why not make a cute Easter bunny cone which your little one can use to collect eggs on an Easter egg hunt, which can then be reused as a table decoration?
You will need…
- A printer
- Colouring Pens
Step 1 - Print out your bunny cone from the templates here
Step 2 - Colour in the Easter egg held by the bunny, then cut around the template shape.
Step 3 - Glue the edges in order to form the cone, now all you need to do is fill it with Easter treats - these cones are great to use in an Easter egg hunt!
We hope these crafting ideas have inspired you to get creative this Easter with your children.
