What better way to gear up for Easter with your kids than with homemade crafts, sweet treats, and of course an Egg Hunt! Here are 10 easy activities to do with kids this year – that you can probably make with things you have around the house.
These Easter Craft ideas are good for toddlers and preschoolers because they are very simple, but that doesn’t stop them from being adorable.
Easter Crafts for Kids
What a fun twist on dying Easter Eggs! Take Shaving cream and food coloring and create creative and tie-dye like eggs for Easter this year.
Unless you were making this craft yourself, you would never know this gorgeous wreath was made out of an old egg carton! I absolute love the colors, fun shapes, and the adorable pom poms in each egg carton flower. Such a fun way to welcome spring and cheer up your door!
Aren’t these boxes stunning? The directions say you can add baked goods in each of the egg slots, but they could be filled with anything fun you wish to give your kids/friends/partner this year. Fill them with candy, decorated eggs, baked goods, tiny trinkets, and so much more. Place one decorated box on each person’s plate for a fun surprise before your Easter brunch begins.
This is the absolute perfect activity for kids of all ages! They can stamp a few papers/cards and send out Easter notes to all of their loves ones. Reaching out to friends and loved ones during this quarantine will make them feel extra special. (This blogger also has this terrific Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treat recipe you can check out.)

These little crafts are so memorable since your kids will only be this age once. Capturing this age and hand/foot size is a popular and family favorite craft (especially if you send these to grandma and grandpa via snail mail).
This is such a cute idea for any mantel or dining room. Your little ones can make any egg color combination and make the garland as long or short as they want. You could even lay it in the middle of the table in a wave pattern for a bright centerpiece!
Easter Egg Hunt
Make the hunt easy or hard (depending on the age of your child). You hide eggs all over your home, the backyard, and/or along the way on one of your daily walks outdoors. Any kind of fun hunt for eggs/surprises will brighten everyone’s Easter morning. One fun tip is to include things other than candy into the eggs like money for older kids, fun written notes/activities written inside for littles.
