Blogger-approved simple Easter crafts for kids

Easter bunny pot plant from www.the3amdiary.com

This easy Easter bunny plant pot craft from Kaz and Lily at www.the3amdiary.com is great to give with a plant or filled with eggs as a gift to someone special. Or why not plant some sunflower or wildflower seeds to watch them grow?
If you wish, you can paint your plant pot before decorating to make your bunny whichever colour you like.

Tip: We find paint pens are great for the best results when drawing the face.

You’ll need:

  • An old plant pot
  • Colouring pens
  • Card or paper
  • Sticky tape (we use paper tape)
  • Googly or sticky eyes optional

Do this activity:
1. Find an old plant pot
2. Cut out some ear shapes from paper or card
3. Colour the ears in as you wish
4. Draw a face on your plant pot
5. Stick on or draw the eyes
6. Stick the ears into the inside of the top of the pot with the tape
7. Cut two egg shapes for the feet and draw on the rabbit paws
8. Stick the feet on the front – you can use double sided tape or we just double over a bit of paper tape
9. Pop in a plant, fill with Easter treats, or plant some seeds and watch them grow

Fluffy reverse Easter art by @Wy and I

Even young children can try this fun, tactile craft made using sticky back paper, card, and cotton wool.

You’ll need:

  • Sheets of A4 or A3 card
  • A pen or pencil
  • Scissors
  • Sticky back plastic or sticky tape
  • Colour tissue paper
  • Cotton wool (not pads)

Do this activity: Draw out your bunny shape onto the card the cut it out. Place the bunny cut out over a layer of sticky back plastic (or use long pieces of sticky tape). Flip the card so the sticky side is facing upwards.

Cut out a nose and any details from some tissue paper and place those on the bunny. You’re working in reverse, so you’ll stick these down first. Give your little one the cotton wool and let them stick and remove to make a fully bunny.

Try other spring animals like a lamb, baby chick, or duck like we’ve shown in the picture below.

Spring chick prints by @MayasMoonPlay

You’ll need:

  • Plain paper
  • Empty toilet paper roll inner
  • Yellow paint
  • Feathers
  • Glue (stick or PVA)
  • A pen (to draw the face and legs)

Do this activity: First you want to make your chick outline so dip the end of the toilet roll inner into yellow paint and dab onto your paper. Remember to leave enough space for wings. Once the circles have dried, draw on a face and some legs.

Next take your glue and feathers, dab some glue using a glue stick or paint brush if using PVA, onto the paper where you want your wings to go. Then stick down the feathers one by one and leave to dry.

Jumbo Dropper Art from @two_sons_in_sussex

Use our Primary Science Jumbo Droppers to do this craft at home – the chunky design makes them easy for little hands to use. Plus, they’ll be practising fine motor skills as they go. Fill them with fun colours and get drop, drop, dropping!

You’ll need:

  • Cardboard (we used some recycling)
  • PVA Glue
  • Cotton wool pads
  • Food dye and water and pipettes

Do this activity: Cut the cardboard into your chosen shape – we did eggs but the more creative could maybe do bunnies or Easter chicks. Glue the cotton wool pads on. Use the pipettes to colour with dyed water. Voila! A creative, colourful Easter craft that’s super easy to do. See the step-by-step photos below.
