Get out your craft supplies! Maggy Woodley of Red Ted Art is sharing some of her favourite Easter craft ideas with us. I just love those egg carton chicken, they’re so cute! Red Ted Art is my go-to site for all things crafty and fun, and I can tell you that Maggy is just as lovely ‘in real life’ as we met up a few years ago when I was in London.
Hello! I am so excited to be sharing some ideas for Easter crafting with you. For us, Easter crafts tend to mostly revolve around Bunny Craft Ideas (which is awesome if you love bunnies!) but Easter has so many more adorable elements too. I am here to share some of those (along with a few bunnies, some great Easter Baskets, as well as some Egg Decorating ideas.) Hope you find something you love!
Here are some of our favourite Easter craft ideas:
- If you’re looking for a non-traditional way to decorate your Easter eggs, this Tissue Paper Chicks idea is perfect! Kids of all ages will enjoy creating colorful, spunky chicks with tissue paper and a handful of other craft supplies you probably already have on hand.
- These Paper Plate Bunny and Chick Purses are an adorable and creative take on traditional paper plate crafts. What little one wouldn’t enjoy making a little purse to carry all their Easter loot? Similarly you will love this rocking Paper Plate Bunny too!
- Origami is an ideal craft to do any time, almost anywhere as you pretty much only need a sheet of paper (and it doesn’t result in any messes!) Try out the Easy Origami Bunny, perfect for little fingers and beginners looking to jump in to paper crafts! Mix up the designs with different patterned papers and draw on some cute faces.
- Create some fun and funky Egg Carton Chickens with some dyed eggs and the left over egg carton. These little guys are an awesome way to decorate your table for Easter!
- These Chick Easter Baskets make perfect table decorations to hold bits Easter candy or, add a handle and little ones can use their own creation to collect eggs on the big day!
- Get the littlest ones involved in the egg-dying action with these simple ideas. Try the combo of scotch tape and eggs dyed with food dye for exciting results or create some sweet Eric Carle Egg Decoration, sure to inspire story time after.
- Almost every child gets excited to help with baking and these Chocolate Button Hens are guaranteed to delight. Add some pastels and make them super Easter-y!
- Use these easy-to-make Pipecleaner Pencil Toppers to decorate pencils, create stick puppets, or create simple finger puppets!
- Printing off a quick worksheet is a great way to get yourself a few minutes to set up some of our super fun Easter crafts. These Printable Easter Worksheets fit right in to get kids excited for the Easter festivities.
I hope you discovered some ideas you loved. I can’t wait to see you over at Red Ted Art sometime soon!
