Top Easter Crafts for Kids
It doesn’t matter how old your children are or if there’s a considerable age range between them, there is always going to be a craft idea that entertains them all. Here are three of our favourite Easter craft ideas:
Dye and Paint Eggs – Dying and painting eggs is one of the most popular Easter craft ideas, and one of the easiest to do. All you need to do is hard boil some eggs and let the kids get stuck in. They can be painted, dyed and customised with stickers. You can even decorate them with felt shapes, ribbon and anything else that you may have laying around the house. This is an Easter craft that kids of all ages will enjoy, you may even want to give it a go yourself!
Make Chocolate Egg Nests – There’s no reason as to why Easter crafts can’t involve a little bit of fun in the kitchen. A lot of children prefer crafts that end with them getting to snack on something tasty, which is why chocolate Easter nests are so popular. By mixing melted chocolate with cereal and letting it cool, you can create edible nests. Adding Mini Eggs, sprinkles or plastic chicks will give the nests a real Easter feel.
Decorate Homemade Easter Bonnets – This Easter craft idea lets kids get really creative and will leave them with their very own unique bonnet to wear. Plain Easter bonnets are cheap and easy to come by, then all you need is whatever decorations you can find. Kids can draw on them, add stickers, glitter, ribbon, felt shapes and even Easter figures. It’s a craft that will engage children of all ages.
As you can see, there’s no shortage of Easter craft ideas to choose from. It doesn’t matter whether the kids want to bake an Easter treat or they want to make something, you won’t struggle to find something to keep them entertained. Will you be making some chocolate nests or getting started on Easter bonnets?
