This adorable Easter egg paper wreath can be made with pieces of scrapbook paper, construction paper, or even old magazines that you have lying around at home. Simply cut out egg-shaped pieces of paper in different sizes, and glue them to a cardboard circle for stability (or just each other). Finish with a bright ribbon, and hang!

Easter cards

If you aren’t able to get together with family members this Easter, having your children make personal Easter cards will let family and friends know that you’re thinking of them. Cutting out simple shapes from construction paper, like these circle, triangle, and teardrop chicks, is a cute way to decorate and personalise cards.

That’s all you need for this super cute hanging garland. Kids could colour each rabbit to look like friends or family. Each rabbit gets a sweet cottontail and you get a sweet house decoration.

These Easter crafts for kids are simple to make: All you need are some old cardboard rolls, cotton wool or mini pom-poms for the noses, and some paint, paper and glue. The littlest ones might need help with whiskers and eyes, but you’ll have a whole bunch of cute bunnies hopping about your kitchen in no time. Did you know a group of rabbits can be called a fluffle? It’s true!

If one of your favourite Easter crafts for kids is decorating eggs, you know it’s nice to have somewhere to show them off. Enter the humble egg carton, repurposed for decoration! A shiny metallic pipe cleaner for a handle and some crepe paper wrapped around a specially painted egg carton makes for a beautiful (and sturdy) Easter basket.

Another use for any old jars you have lying around is this Easter craft for kids: a super cute bunny vase transformation. Simply paint the entire jar the desired colour of your bunny (pink, green, brown, it all works), and glue some googly eyes on. Feet, noses and whiskers can be drawn on with glitter pens or markers, or added in paper or foam like the ears. Fill with your favourite flowers!

Paddle pop stick Easter bunnies

If you have paint, glue, craft paper and paddle pop sticks, you’ve got everything you need for Easter crafts for kids – and to create some new furry friends. Paint the paddle pop sticks first, then line four or five up vertically, and keep them in place with two horizontal sticks glued together 2/3 of the way up (where the ears go). Add a paper nose, ears, eyes and whiskers. Pro tip: gluing an additional stick on the bottom enables your paddle pop stick bunny to be hand-held, like an ice block – which means they’re perfect for puppet shows.
