Easy Easter crafts for kids
Have fun creating Easter crafts with your kids.
When it comes to Easter crafts for kids, the Web can be a huge resource. In fact, there are so many craft sites out there that it can be a little overwhelming. In order to make your craft planning easier, I've gathered some of my favorites into one article, complete with supply lists and links to complete directions with photographs. Happy crafting!
This has got to be my favorite craft site. The kids and I use crafts from this site all the time - and they have crafts for every holiday, occasion and cartoon character under the sun!
- crayons or markers
This craft can be made into a basket by attaching a paper handle, a puppet by adding a Popsicle stick, or a hat by adding string. Click on the link above for complete directions and a printable template.
If your kids love cartoon characters like Pokemon, Scooby Doo, Spongebob, Blue's Clues, and Veggie Tales, be sure to check out the above link. Print out the easy template, color and cut, and you have some homemade egg holders to display your colored eggs.
Speaking of colored eggs, there are so many ways you can dye your Easter eggs - use tissue paper, crayons, stickers and rubber bands to make uniquely patterned eggs that go above and beyond the typical colored eggs.
Cotton Ball Lamb
- black or gray construction paper
- white crayon
- cotton balls
- googly eyes
This craft is easy to do, even your youngest children. Using the white crayon, trace your child's hand with fingers spread onto the construction paper. The four fingers are the legs; the thumb is the lamb's head and face.
Glue cotton balls over the palm area of the hand for the lamb's body. Glue googly eyes to the lamb's head, or for an easier version, use the white crayon to draw the eyes and a mouth. Cut out the handprint, and there you have your lamb!
