7 Easter Crafts Kids Can Actually Make Themselves

Easter is an unpredictable holiday, weather-wise. You could be outside, bounding around in spring-green grass or holed up inside staring at the snow. If you need some Easter activities to keep your kids busy, you’ve come to the right place.

I love crafts that can’t go wrong: The kinds that don’t require micro-managing by me to end up with something that’s worth keeping. You’d be surprised at how much stuff on Pinterest and “kids” craft sites are clearly not manageable by small children.

7 Easter Crafts Kids Can Make

Kids love tiny toys! Here are some tiny Easter toys to make, or have them make themselves. You can even decorate the “eggs.”  Egg Carton Chicks.

I love this idea of using clues and Easter eggs to lead your child on an ultimate Easter Egg Basket Treasure Hunt. The printables on this site are a little awkward, because I guess it was meant to be a “sexy” Easter egg hunt for a husband (?!?). But who am I to judge?

My kids love to help in the kitchen, and this is an easy dessert that the kids can help with! Just melt orange chocolate and dip! Orange chocolate-covered strawberries.

You don’t even really have to buy anything for this craft, just draw your egg and have your child place buttons. You can get large bags of plain buttons cheap at the dollar store, craft stores, or if you have a relative who sews, ask them. Rainbow-button Easter eggs.

These cute crafts would be perfect for DIY fun. If your children can draw but not cut, cut out a few outfits for them to decorate. Bunny spoons.

This idea is perfect for getting the wiggles out. Have the kids come up with ideas to put in each egg. Easter egg-ersizes.

Another craft that can’t really go wrong, and any age can do, even if they are just choosing the yarn and you glue. They would look adorable in white frames for a seasonal keepsake. Bunny/Egg yarn craft.
