10 Homemade Easter Ideas for Kids of All Ages

Let’s start decorating for the Easter Bunny! He (Or she, is there an official ruling on the sex of the Easter Bunny?) is nearly ready to hippity hoppity down that bunny trail and eggs must be dyed and baskets decorated. We’ve gathered the best Easter crafts and snacks we could find to share with you.

Ready, set, dye!

Hey Jen Renee has a great tutorial for dying eggs with kool-aid, no vinegar needed. It’s simple and pretty, everything an Easter egg needs.

If you and the kids are ready to step it up a notch and make some funky eggs, check out Sandy Toes & Popsicles and their tie-dyed style eggs.
For something a little less “colour fast dye all over the house” check out these eggs made with double sided tape and glitter from Paper Tales. I know we’ll be trying these this year.

Maybe you’d like to spend some time making eggs that won’t be eaten or broken? Sew Mama Sew has a tutorial for fabric scrap sparkly eggs using cardboard paper mache egg forms. A great way to use up bits of fabric. Bring on the Modge Podge!

Give knitting with double pointed needles a try and add some knitted eggs to your Easter tree. The pattern for these sweet eggs is available at Purl Bee, there’s also a tutorial for duplicate stitching. Great craft to use up scrap bits of yarn.

When you are all done with eggs and ready to try something else, get out the paint and make some Easter cards to share with family and friends. These happy bunnies are from Diapers to Diplomas.

 

This gorgeous Easter basket is a labour of love but worth every stitch. Surprise your egg hunters with a homemade basket or use it to display all your fancy eggs. Pattern and instructions available at Moda Bake Shop.

These rainbow bunnies are called catnip bunnies, designed by Coffee & Cream, the pattern is a free download on Ravelry. Add catnip is you have kitties needing a treat, omit if you don’t. Either way they are sure to add some homemade cheer to your Easter celebration.

Once you and your little bunnies are all crafted out you are going to need a snack. Visit Sing For Your Supper for this super awesome Bunny Bait recipe. Popcorn and M&M’s and chocolate, oh my! And yes please.

While it’s not a custom to leave a snack out for the Easter Bunny it is a custom to have an Easter egg hunters snack and what better snack than Orange Bunny Rolls from Budget Gourmet Mom.  A kid friendly recipe for making and eating.

 

What are your favourite Easter crafts? Do you hard boil eggs for dying or do you blow them out?

  1. I’m going to do kool aid eggs, Easter cards, and maybe the double sided tape glitter eggs. Thanks for the ideas, this is just what I was looking for.
