Easter Craft Ideas

Looking for ways to keep your children entertained over Easter?

Here in the Capikooa household we have enjoyed doing these crafts together. We are sure these fun projects will keep kids happy and busy. You might even find yourself getting stuck in, too.

Let’s Look at What can kids do for Easter at home.

1. Lolly Pop Stick Carrots

Ready to get creative? Here are some ideas to for DIY carrots. To make decorative Easter carrots you will need:

  • Lolly pop sticks
  • Paint
  • Scissors
  • Orange Tissue paper
  • Green ribbon
  • Glue
  • Optional orange ribbon and orange foil paper

What to do

First you’ll need to paint the lolly sticks. Don’t have orange paint? Ask your children if they know what colours they need to mix to make orange. If they’re too little to know, tell them that mixing yellow with red makes orange. Our kids experimented with the colours for a while and found three parts yellow to one part yellow made a perfect orange for them. Once they are dry, cut some of the lolly sticks in half to use as the top of the carrot. We have used a glue gun to stick them together creating a triangle shape (white glue will also work but just takes longer to dry)

Once the sticks are stuck together you can get to work decorating them. You can even get creative by stringing multiple carrots together to create a garland!

2. DIY Paper Plate Chick Nest

Want to get out the house this Easter then this one makes a great activity. Why not start the day off with a nature walk to collect some treasures (materials) for creating a nest for the baby chicks?

To create Easter Paper Plate Chick Nest you will need:

  • Pampas style materials, alternatively shredded paper
  • Paper plates
  • Glue or staples
  • Scissors
  • Craft baby chicks
  • Paint

What to do

Start with cutting a paper plate in half. This can then be gauged to the full size plate to create a nest cavity. To help you can pencil on some lines and patterns for your kids to follow and decorate or let them get creative and come up with their own designs. Once you have your cavity and the paint is dry you can start filling it with material to create the nest ready for the chicks to go in.

3. Toilet Roll Bunnies

Easter toilet roll craft is perfect for getting creative. We have mixed ours up with collecting some pointy leafs to make the ears but paper ears will work just as good.

To create Easter toilet roll bunnies you will need:

  • Left over toilet roll tubes
  • Paint
  • Ribbon or pipe cleaners
  • Paper tissue
  • Glue
  • Pen or googly eyes
  • Pointy leafs or paper

What to do

Start with painting the toilet tubes: we have chosen classic white rabbits. Once the paint is dry the kids can get sticking or drawing the eye and mouth on the rabbits. For the whiskers ribbon curled up make a nice touch. Lastly stick the leaf ears on top. For extra detail why not add a fluffy flower or cotton tail.

Still stuck on ideas to entertain kids on Easter? Then hopefully this one will keep little hands busy. Capikooa team love cutting out and is great for fine motor skills. Let your kids cut out some different shape rabbit face parts followed by lots of mixing and match to create their own rabbits designs. To keep it fun we used the Smart Magnetic Balance Board as great surface for sticking and playing with all them different parts that they can keep coming back to.

What you will need:

  • Card paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint or colouring pens
  • Optional Smart Magnetic Balance Board and magnetics

Draw some different rabbit face parts on to some card paper. Cut out the shapes and decorate their way. When ready let them get creative with mixing and matching.

5. Peek-a-boo Chick

Easter is not Easter without decorating an egg. So we got creative with a peek-a-boo chick inside an egg.

To create Easter peek-a-boo chick you will need:

  • Card or paper
  • Paints or colouring pens
  • Glue or staples
  • Tissue paper

What to do

Draw an egg shape on the card paper, then cut out. Once you have one use this as a template for cutting the matching half. When you have two egg shape bit you will need to cut 1/3 off the top of one the eggs in a zigzag. Now align the two egg half together and either glue the edge together or staple but leaving an opening at the top. Next draw a chick shape that will fit in the opening of the egg. As soon as the chick is cut out and decorated either glue or staple the head to the top part of the cut off egg and place inside the egg. The rest of the egg can then be decorated.
