15 Fun Easter Craft Ideas

Looking to get creative this Easter? We’ve created a list of our favourite Easter craft ideas for all the family to enjoy. We have something for everyone – from painting Easter eggs to creating paper plate Easter bunnies. Read on and discover our top picks for some easy Easter fun for all the family this year.

Pipe Cleaner Eggs

You don’t need many art supplies for this simple craft project – just 3-4 pipe cleaners, an egg and a hot glue gun. Ensure your egg is empty and clean, (or use a faux craft egg) and attach the end of a pipe cleaner to the middle of the top of the egg with a dot of hot glue.

Next, coil the pipe cleaner around the egg and add dots of hot glue. Cut off any extra pipe cleaner once finished, and secure with a final dot of glue.

Glitter Eggs

Simple but effective, just cover the desired part of your egg in glue, and then dip it into a bowl of glitter! Love glitter? Check out these Sparkling Christmas Crafts ideas.

Paper Plate Easter Bunny

Perfect for the younger members of the family, this craft requires paper plates, pom poms, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, glue and construction paper. (This activity bag has most of the supplies required!)

The face is simply the paper plate, cut out the ears with construction paper, using a different colour for the inside.

Twist 3 pipe cleaners together at the centre to create the whiskers, using the pom pom as the nose.

Finally, the eyes are just the googly eyes, and the mouth can be drawn on with a marker.

Artwork could include children’s drawings or watercolour paintings.
