Easy Easter craft ideas

Love crafts? Love Easter? Then you’ll love these easy Easter craft activities with the kids – tried and tested by blogger Lauren Miller.

We all love creating and exploring arts and crafts, and it’s such a fun, family-bonding activity. When you combine that fun with the joy of Easter, it becomes even more special.

1. Homemade bunny ears

Transform yourself this Easter into the perfect bunny with this very easy craft.

What you’ll need:

  • Paper plate
  • White card
  • Pink pen or pencil
  • Glue stick or Sellotape
  • Scissors


1. Cut out the centre of the paper plate to leave a circular space large enough to fit your head. Cut out two dips on the inside of the paper plate where you want the ears to go. (I’d recommend making them further apart than I decided to.)

2. Use the white card and cut out two large shapes to resemble bunny ears. Then, use a pink pen or pencil to draw a pink strip in the middle of the ears.

3. Finally, glue the ears into the small dips you created using a glue stick or Sellotape.

2. Homemade chick

This is a fun and simple way to create your own cute little chick this Easter.

What you’ll need:

  • Yellow card
  • Orange card
  • White paper or card
  • Black pen
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Pencil


1. Cut out an egg shape in the yellow card. Feel free to practise drawing the shape on the back to help you cut it right. If you’re an adult, I’d suggest cutting out a much larger egg as it will make the next step easier.

*TIP: feel free to decorate! My little cousin used white card so you could see the design better.

2. Draw around your hands on the yellow card and cut them out.

3. Using glue, stick your hand shapes behind the egg to make it look like the chick’s wings.

4. Using orange card, cut out two small feet for your bird (you can go with whatever shape you like) and stick them to the bottom of the egg.

5. Cut out a diamond shape in the orange card and fold it in half to resemble a beak. Make sure to glue the bottom side to the middle of the egg. For the eyes I cut out two small circles using white card and drew in the pupils using a pencil.
