NOTE: Always use caution and ensure adult supervision when using scissors or other sharp objects in the creation of these crafts. 

1. Egg Carton Chicks:

Transform empty egg cartons into adorable little chicks with this simple and fun craft. Have an adult cut out individual sections of the egg carton, then have your little ones paint them yellow, and add googly eyes, orange felt beaks, and orange pipe cleaner legs to bring these cute critters to life.

2. Cardboard Bunny Masks:

Encourage imaginative play with homemade bunny masks. Cut out bunny-shaped masks from recycled cardboard or paper plates, then let your kids decorate them with markers, stickers, pom-poms, or whatever else their hearts desire. Add elastic or string to the sides so they can wear their masks proudly.

3. Plastic Bottle Flower Wreath:

Repurpose plastic bottles into a vibrant flower wreath to adorn your front door or mantle. Help your children cut the bottoms off plastic bottles to create flower shapes. Then, have them paint the bottles in bright colours and glue them onto a cardboard or wooden wreath base. To complete the look, add leaves and stems made from green construction paper or fabric scraps.

4. Pom-Pom Easter Bunnies:

Craft fluffy Easter bunnies using pom-poms and felt. Glue together a large pom-pom for the body and a smaller one for the head, then add felt ears, a nose, and whiskers. Finish off with googly eyes and a cotton ball tail for an irresistibly cute decoration.

5. Easter Egg Suncatchers:

Brighten up your windows with colourful Easter egg suncatchers. Cut out egg shapes from tissue paper in an array of springtime colours, then use clear contact paper to sandwich them together. Hang them up and watch as the sunlight filters through, casting a rainbow of hues into the room.

6. Handprint Easter Cards:

Personalize your Easter greetings with handprinted cards that are as unique as your little ones. Fold cardstock in half to create a card, then have your little ones dip their hands in paint and press them onto the front of the card to make bunny ears. Add facial features and a cotton ball tail to complete the adorable design.

7. Tin Can Easter Centerpiece:

Transform empty tin cans into a festive Easter centerpiece for your dining table. Have an adult carefully clean the cans thoroughly, then together, paint them in springtime hues or cover them with decorative paper. Arrange them in a row and fill them with fresh flowers, Easter grass, or colourful eggs for a cheerful display.

8. Paper Roll Egg Stamps:

Create unique Easter egg designs using cardboard paper rolls as stamps. Cut the rolls into sections and shape them into egg shapes, then dip them in paint and stamp them onto paper or cardstock. Experiment with different colours and patterns to make one-of-a-kind Easter cards, gift wrap, or decorations.

9. Bunny Ear Headbands:

Give your kids the full Easter bunny experience with DIY bunny ear headbands. Cut out ear shapes from felt or construction paper and attach them to a headband using hot glue or tape. Let your children decorate their ears with markers, glitter, or sequins for a personalized touch.

10. Jellybean Bracelets:

Combine Easter candy with a fun crafting activity by making jellybean bracelets. Thread colourful jellybeans onto stretchy cord or elastic, then tie the ends together to create wearable treats that your kids will love to show off. 

NOTE: When providing children with wearable treats, use your discretion on what’s age-appropriate. Children should be supervised while consuming if there is a risk of choking.

11. Easter Egg Hunt Bags:

Ensure that your little egg hunters are well-prepared for the hunt with custom Easter egg hunt bags. Decorate plain canvas tote bags with fabric paint, markers, or iron-on decals, then let them fill their bags with goodies as they search for hidden treasures.
