9 Easter Craft Ideas for Kids

1. Paper Plate Easter Baskets

How to make a paper plate easter basket

What better way to prepare for an Easter egg hunt than to make your own baskets!

The base is made from paper plates that are cut, shaped, and glued. Then your kids can decorate them however they like. 

We have used foam paper flowers, and paint directly on the paper plate in the example projects. 

2. Egg Carton Easter Baskets

Step 6

These tiny Easter baskets are more of a decoration. Unless you plan on allowing your kids just the one Easter egg. Which we both know won’t happen… 

A few of these colorful baskets together make a great display around the kitchen. 

Your kids will have lots of fun painting these and experimenting with some bright colors. 

3. Easter Bunny and Chick Toilet Roll Craft

Turn some ordinary leftover toilet roll into these cute Easter characters. 

A great way to brighten up the house, while also showing your kids how to make best use of something likely headed for the trash. 

This one is cheap, easy, and the end result adorable. 

4. Cotton Ball Easter Bunny Craft

Complete Cotton Ball Easter Bunny Craft

We ramp the cuteness up a notch with these Easter bunny faces on a bed of cotton balls, glued all over a paper plate. 

The gluing stage can get messy – you have to be generous in its application. So your kids will probably love that part, and the sticking of the cotton balls that follow.

From there you add the features and this cotton mess comes to life.

5. Easter Candy Crafts

Easter and candy go hand in hand. What better way to get the kids excited than to decorate the candy itself?

Great for preparing gifts for friends and family, or just a fun family activity.
