DIY Easter crafts to keep the children busy this Easter weekend

We love the Easter weekend. Family, Easter eggs, hot cross buns and daffodils; it’s the first sign that Spring is on its way! To keep the children busy this Easter, why not encourage them to try their hand at making some Easter-themed crafts.


Paper plate bunnies

Everybody loves an Easter bunny! This craft is sure to be a family favourite. Collect pipe cleaners, paper plates, pom-poms, glue, felt tip pens and googly eyes to create your paper plate bunny. Create a face in the middle of the paper plate using the googly eyes, pipe cleaners for whiskers, a pom-pom for a nose and the felt tip pen for the mouth. Using another paper plate, cut out two ears and      decorate to your liking.


Decorating eggs

This one allows you to get creative with just some hard-boiled eggs and any felt tips, paints or crafts you have around the house. You can have tons of fun decorating the eggs into characters or pretty patterns and for a traditional approach, why not roll them down a big hill on Easter Sunday?


Potato stamping

This simple and cost-effective craft is perfect for entertaining the children for a few hours over the break. All you need is a handful of potatoes, a knife or shaped cutter, paint and some coloured paper to create some Easter egg inspired art. Simply slice the potatoes in half and cut out decorative designs such as zig zags or swirls, then dip in to paint and press onto the card for a celebratory design!


Cotton wool lambs

 Gather some cotton wool, coloured paper, googly eyes, glue and felt tip pens. Use the cotton wool to create the body of the lamb and glue it on to the paper, using felt tip pens you can create the legs and face and add the googly eyes to perfect your lamb. Why not make this in to an Easter card for a loved one?
