Over 100 Amazing Easter Crafts for Kids and Parents

by John Griffith

With three weeks left to Easter, now is the perfect time to start preparing for the spring festivities. As you know from our article about dying and decorating eggs, we simply adore this holiday! It’s colorful, fun, and brings families together. To make this Easter even more special, we decided to share some of our favorite DIY projects. We have gathered tons of great Easter crafts for kids as well as parents – from simple and easy suggestions, ideal for tiny hands, to more complex projects, better suited for older children, moms and dads.

This adorable bunny garland is one of our favorite Easter crafts for kids

Older children and their parents can make more complex Easter decorations, like these cute embroidered sock bunnies:

Egg holders are another fun and easy suggestion

How about making little pompom chick ornaments?

five chick decorations, easter crafts for kids, made from pale yellow pom poms, with tiny legs and beaks, made from orange fuzzy wire, and eye stickers

What you’ll need:

  • pale yellow thread
  • orange fuzzy wire (pipe cleaners)
  • scissors
  • googly eye stickers
  • clear glue


  1. First, use the yellow thread to make several little pompoms. If you haven’t done it before, here is a great tutorial, explaining how.
  2. Using the scissors, cut three small bits of orange fuzzy wire. They will be your chick’s beak and legs.
  3. Take one of the finished pompoms and stick the beak and legs on it with glue.
  4. Finally, add the eye stickers.
  5. Your pompom chick is complete! Now repeat the process as many times as necessary.

These little hand-crafted ornaments are not only adorable and great for decorative purposes, but they also make very good gifts, especially when combined with sweets or chocolate! It is worth noting that older kids can easily complete the project on their own, but youngsters under 6 should be supervised, especially while using scissors.

To make things even easier, here is a photo tutorial of the entire process:

And since most children love nature, we decided to include another animal-related tutorial. Adorable, fun to make and easy as pie, this little lamb craft is perfect for youngsters over 6.

What you’ll need:

  • a sheet of plain white card
  • a pack of white cotton buds
  • two plain wooden clothespins
  • glue
  • scissors
  • markers or colored pencils (for drawing the lamb’s face)
  • small piece of thin ribbon (optional)


  1. Take the white card and cut out two shapes – a bigger, oval one, and a smaller, roundish one. These will be your lamb’s body and head.
  2. Now, take the pack of cotton buds (you will need quite a few), and carefully cut off all of their tips.
  3. Take the larger card cutout and spread some glue on it. Then carefully stick the cotton bud tips on it, until you cover the entire surface.
  4. Now it’s time to make your lamb’s head! Take the smaller cutout and draw a cute face on it.
  5. Stick a cotton bud tip on each side of the head, to serve as the animal’s ears. Then add five or six tips on top. If you like, decorate with a ribbon.
  6. Next, stick the head onto the finished body.
  7. Finally, stick the two clothespins – they will be your lamb’s legs.
  8. Voila! Your little lamb figurine is complete!

These photos will guide you through the process:

And, of course, no Easter party will be complete without the Easter bunny! 

bunny ornaments, craft ideas for kids, made from pale green, pale purple and pale peach plain and patterned paper, decorated with eye stickers, faux straw whiskers, and cotton ball tails

What you’ll need:

  • Two sheets of paper (one plain, one patterned) in colors of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Sticky tape
  • Eye stickers
  • Black pen or pencil
  • Dry straw paper in yellow
  • Some cotton


  1. Take the plain paper and cut three shapes out of it: one large round shape (your bunny’s head) and two smaller half-circles (its paws)
  2. Using the black pen or pencil, draw the bunny’s mouth, and (if desired) add some details to its paws.
  3. Take the sheet of patterned paper and cut out two bunny ears and one little round shape (for the nose).
  4. Next, cut several equally long pieces of dry straw paper, and stick them together in a bunch, using sticky tape – they will be your bunny’s whiskers.
  5. Stick the whiskers above the bunny’s mouth, then secure the little round nose on top. Add two eye stickers.
  6. Then, stick the ears and paws to the bunny’s head.
  7. Now it’s time to make the body. Cut a square piece of plain paper, roll it in a tube, and secure it with sticky tape.
  8. Stick the bunny’s head to the roll.
  9. Finally, stick a small piece of cotton on the back of the tube, to serve as your bunny’s tail!
  10. Your easter bunny ornament is ready!

These paper lilies are a great project not only for Easter, but also for Mother’s Day, and other spring festivities

bunch of lilies, made from pale pink, rolled and folded paper, easter diy, with green and yellow, fuzzy wire stalks

What you’ll need:

  • A sheet of paper or card in a color of your choice (we used pink)
  • Scissors
  • Green and yellow fizzy wire (pipe cleaners)
  • Sticky tape
  • Black pen or pencil


  1. Draw an outline of your hand on the piece of paper, using a pen or pencil.
  2. Carefully cut it out.
  3. Fold the hand-shaped cutout into a cone, and secure its ages with sticky tape. Once done, it should resemble a flower with the fingers being its petals.
  4. Curl the paper petals outwards, using a pencil.
  5. Cut a short piece of yellow fizzy wire, and a longer piece of green fizzy wire. The yellow fuzzy wire will serve as your lily’s pistil, while the green one will be its stalk.
  6. Attach the pistil to the stalk, and run it through the center of the flower.
  7. Repeat the process as many times as necessary.

Eggs are Easter’s best known symbol! You can make these nifty decorations with a handful of household items

meshy and hollow, egg-shaped decorations, easter arts and crafts, made using balloons, glue and thread, hanging on a colorful rope, near a fireplace

What you’ll need:

  • Several balloons
  • Cotton thread in different colors
  • Pack of corn starch and water


  1. Inflate the balloons halfway, so they keep their egg-like shape.
  2. Mix a non-toxic home-made glue, using corn starch and water. You can find two great recipes here.
  3. Dip the thread in the glue.
  4. Take a balloon and wrap the glue-covered thread around it. Then, leave aside to dry.
  5. Once ready, pop the balloon with a pin, and you will be left with a hollow, mesh-like egg-shaped ornament.
  6. Repeat the process until you have as many eggs as you like.

You can make a garland by stringing the egg ornaments together, or just use them for Easter decorations around the house.
