Last Minute Easter Crafts for Kids

Looking for something to quickly do for the kids to celebrate Easter this weekend? We put together a few fun and simple ideas to put you in the Easter spirit using items you’ll have already in your craft closet!

Bunny Handprint

You can make a bunny handprint card or placemat. Simple paint your child’s hand with paint but paint just two fingers so you can create ears for the bunny. Draw your bunnies whiskers, mouth, nose and eyes or add some eyes and pompoms.

Dye Easter Eggs

You can color your eggs using food coloring and vinegar just as easily as grabbing a box from the Dollar Tree.  We use crayons to color on the eggs before we color them to add patterns and pictures. Don’t forget to save your egg cartons to create all sorts of crafts. 

TinkerLabs has an egg challange coming soon.  Need some inspiration, check out this egg carton wreath by Homemade Serenity

Make a Bunny Sandwich

Using a bunny cookie cutter fill your sandwich and then cut the bread with the cookie cutter.  We filled our sandwiches with egg salad and chicken salad for a Bunny Lunch with friends.  Use pretzels for the whiskers and raisins or craisins for the eyes and nose. 

We added some Bunny Crackers from Annie’s to our plates for fun too.  Want to make Bunny Bread?

Egg Wreath

Using paper and crayons create n card or place card for everyone at your Easter Table. Or you can create what we made for our Virtual Book Club and make an Easter Egg Wreath full of ideas for learning about Selflessness through doing acts of kindness for Easter.  For more details click here.

Egg Fun

There something just fun about playing with Easter Eggs! Consider new places to play with them the bath tub or a water table or a wading pool. Think about new things that you can hide in them. Rocks, gems, glass beads, scarves.

There’s always egg hunts that you can do again and again and help your child build their problem solving skills and build their imagination.  Here are 5 Creative Easter Egg Hunts from Quirky Momma.

Spring Animals

Local Egg Hunts are a fun way to experience Easter. Sometimes they even had live animals for your child to experience. Even a visit to your local feed store may give your children an experience watching baby chicks!

Sibling Easter Crafts

Sticker Eggs

Easter Wall Hanging

Using simple shapes you can create a wall hanging for Easter. We used circles to create a chick, a flower and a bunny. Then we attached all of our creations to a long piece of construction paper to hand on the door for Easter Sunday.

The colors of Easter craft are always so bright and cheery! All you have to do is scroll through this blog and you’ll instantly feel excited to spend an afternoon doing some Easter craft (the kids will too).

Here are some more of our favorite Easter craft activities suitable for the early years classroom.

3-in-1 Funky Easter Craft Fun

You can’t put together a list of Easter craft ideas without including these amazing Funky Craft templates. The cuteness factor is undeniable!

From the original Funky Easter Bunny template that had everyone talking to the cute funky character that is every bunnies friend (see what I did there) – The Funky Easter Egg template.

The best thing about this craft is you don’t really need much to get started – and when your students start, they will be fully immersed for ages trying to get all of those patterns just right. You’re welcome!

Potato Masher Easter Egg Stamping

Who would have thought, a trusty kitchen utensil used for mashing up potato would be the perfect size and pattern to create some stupendous Easter egg stamping fun?

This is such a super cute and fun art activity for your little bunnies. Again, the materials required are very minimal for this Easter craft.

How you use this Easter egg stamp idea is up to you and your students. It may be set up as an art and craft station and your students can experiment with different colors.

We decided to create a lovely Easter card that the students may to take home to give to someone special.

Easter Character Terracotta Pot Craft

This Easter craft is slightly more fiddly but you can’t deny the cuteness factor of these gorgeous Easter inspired character pots.

You can pick up cheap terracotta pots from any hardware. Most other materials you may find in your arts and craft supplies.

  • Acrylic paint
  • Teraccotta pots
  • Goggly eyes
  • Colored paper (pink, white and orange)
  • Large pompoms (white and yellow)
  • Feathers

Get painting. White for an Easter rabbit, yellow for a chick or just a cute blue bird for those that may not necessarily celebrate the Easter tradition.

Get decorating. We used cute googly eyes and some feathers, paper or pipe cleaners to create these cute little characters. The best sticking utencil a hot glue gun!

Your students could leave these pots on their desks for when the Easter bunny visits their classroom. Alternatively, they would also look super cute with little succulents in them!

Easter Egg and Chick Template

This super fun Easter craft template is the perfect mix of coloring in, cutting out and assembling!

Materials needed for this craft are minimal too!

Download and print our Easter Egg and Chick Craft Template. We then used paper straws but you can also use two pop stick stuck together to give it the right length for the chick to pop up in between the cracked egg.

How to use this resource:

  1. Decorate the Easter egg and cut it out (including the zigzagged part in the middle to create a cracked egg).
  2. Color the chick and cut it out.
  3. Glue the top of the chick to the cracked end of the top piece of the egg.
  4. Glue a paper straw or two large wooden craft sticks to the back of the chick template.
  5. Cut out the strip of paper and glue each end of the strip of paper to the back of the bottom piece of the egg, just below the cracked edge.
  6. Slip your chick and stick between the strip and the back of the bottom of the egg.
  7. Slide the chick up and down as it peeks between the cracked pieces of the Easter egg.

Easter Agamograph Coloring In Template

Did you know that an agamograph is a series of images that change at different angles?

Your students will have lots of fun creating this cool Easter craft. Simply download our Easter Agamograph Coloring In Template and get your students coloring.

Talk to them about how the two different images are separated in the template. Focus on one image at a time to get the colors consistent.

Then, fold the picture a fan and move from right to left to see the different images! What fun!

5 Easy Easter Crafts For Kids In Under 5 Minutes

5 Easy Easter Crafts For Kids In Under 5 Minutes

Easter is definitely one of my favorite holidays. After the long, cold winter where I live, springtime is very welcome. I can’t tell you how happy I am about the warmer weather and the flowers blossoming.

For me, Easter is as much a celebration of springtime as it is a religious holiday. Most of the crafts I feature on this site are based around that. I can’t get enough of cute bunnies and chicks. So I’ve taught you how to make an adorable and delicious Easter bunny cake, and how to make a bunny from an old sock.

In this video, I will teach you 5 ways to make bunnies and chicks the most ordinary of supplies. These crafts are super fast and easy, so they are a great activity to do with your kids. Just remember to supervise your children if they use the glue gun; small children should use a glue stick instead.

Video Tutorial:

Paper Plate Bunny

Materials

Paper plate Googly eyes Construction paper Pipe cleaners Heart embellishment Hot glue and glue gun

Marker

Steps:

1. Begin by cutting construction paper into the shape of two bunny ears. I used pink and yellow paper for this.

2. Glue the bunny ears onto a paper plate. The plate will be the bunny’s face.

3. Paste googly eyes onto the plate.

4. Use pipe cleaners to create the bunny’s whiskers.

5. Add a heart embellishment as the nose, and use a pen or marker to raw on the mouth.

Easter Chick Basket

Materials

Yellow construction paper Orange or red construction paper Marker

Hot glue and glue gun

Steps:

1. Use yellow construction paper to make a small “roll” shape. If you want it to be sturdier, you can start with a paper roll and then wrap the yellow construction paper around it.

2. Cut out a small triangle of orange or red construction paper.

2. Hot glue the triangle to the paper roll. This will be the bird’s beak.

3. Using a marker or pen, draw on the eyes.

4. Cut a pair of wings the yellow construction paper and glue those on as well.

5. Cut out a strip of yellow construction paper and attach it to the top to serve as a handle.

Here is your finished basket!

Bunny Pencil Cup

Materials

Construction paper Pen or marker Flower embellishment Hot glue and glue gun

Pens, markers, or pencils

Steps:

1. First, roll some construction paper in a color of your choice (I went with pink) into a tube shape.

2. Cut out a couple of “ear” shapes construction paper. I used a combination of white and pink paper for this.

3. Glue the ears onto the paper tube.

4. Glue on a flower embellishment at the top by the ears (or decorate any other way you want).

5. Use a pen or marker to draw a face onto the bunny.

6. Place an assortment of markers, pens, or pencils inside. This makes for a great gift, especially for a co-worker or student.

Paper Strip Chick

Materials

Yellow construction paper Orange construction paper Hot glue and glue gun Googly eyes Pipe cleaner

Bow

Steps:

1. First, you will need 4 long strips of construction paper. Go with yellow since you are making an Easter chick.

2. Hot glue all of the strips together. First, glue two of them together into what looks a “plus sign.”

3. Next, overlay the other 2 strips in the same fashion, but at a 45 degree angle. All of the strips should be evenly spaced at this point.

4. Take one of the strips and bend the two ends upward and toward each other to form a ring-shape. Glue them in place.

5. Do the same thing with all the other strips. This will give you a spherical shape.

6. Glue on a beak made orange construction paper, as well as a pair of googly eyes (the eyes should be placed on each of the strips to either side of the one with the beak).

7. Glue on a bow at the top. I also used pipe cleaners to embellish.

Paper Roll Bunny

Materials

Paper roll Cardboard Construction paper Cotton ball Straw Googly eyes Heart embellishment

Hot glue and glue gun

Steps:

1. Cut out a piece of cardboard in a small circle shape and hot glue it to the base of a paper roll. The circle will be the bunny’s face.

2. Attach a cotton ball to the opposite end of the paper roll to serve as the tail.

3. Glue a pair of googly eyes onto the circle. Next, add some straw in place of whiskers. Add a heart for the nose.

4. Cut a pair of ears construction paper and attach those as well.

These 5 Easter crafts could not be simpler, and you probably have most of the supplies you need on hand! For anything you might be missing, you can ly improvise. Enjoy!
