5 Easter arts and crafts ideas!

Posted on March 28th, 2018

We all know that kids get bored easily, but once the weather starts to get better, they can play outside over the Easter school holidays. We’ve complied a few arts and crafts ideas to keep them occupied on rainy days too, just in case! Take a look below.

  1. Egg painting

This one is obvious, but it’s an Easter classic and a really cheap way to keep the kids quiet for an hour or so!

All you need to do is boil some eggs. You can dye them in bowl of food colouring mixed with water and make different patterns by tying string or elastic bands around the eggs. Alternatively, just let the kids go to town with paint and brushes or even their fingers!

Easter activities
  1. Easter masks

You can find rabbit and chick mask templates free online. Just print them onto coloured card and cut out. The kids can have fun decorating their mask however they please, whether it be with pom poms, glitter, or anything else!

Kids activities at easter
  1. Felt puppets

This is a good one for older kids, and it’s a fun way to teach them how to sew too. All you need is an array of felt in assorted colours and other bits and bobs to decorate.

Place two pieces of felt together and cut into a rabbit or chick shape. Simply sew around the outline, leaving the bottom edge open. Then add other bits of felt and googley eyes to bring the puppet to life!

  1. Hat decorating

Heading to a local craft competition or school fayre? Hat decorating is another classic and the kids can go as wacky as they like. You simply need a cheap straw hat or bonnet (Amazon.co.uk has a good choice). Then, use pva glue to stick on chicks, ribbons, butterflies, flowers and any anything else you can think of!

  1. Pin the tail on the rabbit

Are you hosting a party and not sure how to keep a group of excitable kids entertained and in one place? Try pin the tail on the rabbit. You can find the game online for as little as £1.49.
