3 Fun Easter Craft Ideas to Keep the Family Entertained

Easter is a great time for spending time with friends and family. And what better way to celebrate Easter than by getting the kids involved in some fun craft activities that will not only keep them occupied, but will also add a personal touch to your Easter at home. Here are three fun ideas to inspire your kids, and maybe you too!

Design and decorate the perfect Easter hat

The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing your unique Easter hat. Get into the spirit by letting the kids prepare hats for the entire family!

  1. Start with a plain top hat or cowboy hat in a bright colour
  2. Set up a craft station with some craft glue, double-sided tape, scissors, and fun accessories to stick on
  3. Watch as the kids let their imaginations run wild and turn the hats into works of art

Ideas for decorations include:

  • Use printed ribbon to decorate the hat and add some bunny ears for personality
  • Decorate the hat with tiny Easter bunnies looking for Easter eggs (pom poms)
  • Add flowers and Easter chickens for a pretty spring vibe
  • Complete the look with a decorative pick featuring a bunny, butterfly, flower, or egg on top
  • Create a cute nest on top of the hat with colourful Easter shredding and add in chicks and eggs

Make an Easter basket for egg collection

Instead of handing the kids baskets to collect their eggs in, why not let them create their own?

  1. Start with a plain basket made of wicker or plastic
  2. Decorate the basket with Easter print ribbon wrapped around the handles or rim
  3. Stick on some fun Easter stickers
  4. Grab some craft glue or double-sided tape and stick pom poms on the basket
  5. Fill the inside with some colourful Easter shred for the collected eggs to sit safely in
  6. Add in some cute tiny Easter chicks, bunnies, or plastic eggs to get the basket started

Red Dot has some great plain Easter baskets as well as pre-decorated baskets and bags for your kids to fill with Easter goodies!
