When many of us think of Easter, images of baby animals come to mind. This cute little chick and bunny are another way to use up your egg cartons. Rebecca at Simple as That gives you the details. This project is perfect for kids to try their hands at. The result is very cute and I highly recommend heading over to Simple as That and giving it a go.

This one’s for the toddlers! We all know how toddlers love to touch and feel things. And soft and fluffy is a favorite almost every time. The chick, lamb and bunny from Craftideas are guaranteed winners for this crowd. Don’t be surprised if your child wants to “pet” them afterward! Head on over and give it a go, you won’t regret it.

This wreath is so beautiful you would never guess it is made from egg cartons! After coloring your Easter eggs make sure to save the cartons to make this flower wreath from Homemade Serenity. This craft can easily be adapted for smaller children or ones with special needs by making smaller wreaths or cutting the egg cartons ahead of time and having your child paint them.

Easter Bunny Sock Puppet

Easter Bunny Sock Puppet

Kids love sock puppets, they’re so much fun! Just about everyone finds themselves with an extra white sock once in a while. Why not make a puppet out of it? This adorable Easter bunny puppet from Parenting is super easy and afterward your kids will have a great time entertaining themselves and their siblings with impromptu puppet shows.

Easter Egg Placemat

If your Easter festivities include a brunch or formal dinner, a good way to get the kids involved (if you aren’t brave enough to let them help you cook) is to make placemats or table decorations. This Easter egg placemat from Kidspot Australia is easy enough to make several, and will be a nice addition to your table.

Yarn Easter Baskets

Yarn Easter Baskets

Warning! …This one gets messy! But what kid doesn’t love a messy project ;) Your kids can make their own mini baskets to hold eggs or candy with some yarn and glue. And it’s much more fun than buying one at the store.  And they would be perfect for a small gift. See eighteen25 for the full tutorial.

Ukrainian Easter Egg Art

Ukrainian Easter Egg Art

If you have ever seen a real Ukrainian Easter egg (aka Pysanky) up close, you know they are something to be admired! The patience and skill required is phenomenal. You might not think this qualifies for easy Easter crafts, but think again! Here is a much more kid friendly version that is done on paper, with crayons and food coloring or paint, but uses the same basic idea of a wax resist. This project is from Lindsey at Filth Wizardry, via Alphamom.

Handprint Easter Lilies

Another flower craft, a nice bouquet of handprint Easter lilies from Artists Helping Children will look wonderful decorating your home or your table. Or maybe they can make a few to give to someone special. Handprint crafts are great projects because of the personal touch they have, the unique handprints make every bouquet different.  

Tie Dyed Coffee Filter Easter Eggs Art

These are some extra easy Easter crafts for kids to make. All the beautiful, bright colors will have your child wanting to make more. Melissa at The Chocolate Muffin Tree shows you how. Those under five would really like this. Even the youngest ones can do it quickly since they don’t have to fill the whole egg with design and color for it to look good. Elementary school age children might even enjoy it by challenging themselves to make a specific kind of design or go for a particular effect or color blend on the finished product.

Eggshell Mosaic Picture Frame

Eggshell Mosaic Picture Frame

After you’re done eating all those Easter eggs, use the shells for this craft. This mosaic picture frame from Momtastic would be a perfect place to display a picture of your kids in their fancy Easter outfits. This one would be very easy even for young children with a little help. If you do plan to do it with younger kids, you might want to opt for a smaller picture frame so they don’t lose interest. You may want to add a coat of Mod Podge or other clear sealant on the finished project too.

Keeping your kids busy with some easy Easter crafts for kids to make will give them hours of enjoyment. Get your family together for some quality crafting time and watch their creativity blossom!
