Fun Easter Crafts

My kids love to participate in every holiday by making crafts just like me, so this year I came up with a few easy crafts that the kids and their friends at out Easter play date do.

First up is a simple "bunny" mask for the kids to make and play with. For this craft you will need:
Now have the kids wrap the the pipe cleaners around the popsicle sticks and glue on the bunny nose and they will have a cute little mask to play with.

Next are these colorful and edible cereal bracelets. These aren't necessarily an Easter specific craft, but they are fun none-the-less.

Simply use Fruit Loops or a similar fruity looped cereal and have the kids string them on a pipe cleaner. Once they have completed their bracelet, twist the ends of the pipe cleaner and and they can wear and eat their creation.

Another fun craft for the kids is to use either pre-cut foam Easter eggs or cut your own from pastel foam sheets for the kids to decorate and make their own "Easter eggs" with stickers and markers. Madeline LOVES stickers right now, so I thought this would be fun for them and a lot less messy than dying eggs.

I hope you enjoyed these crafts as much as my kids! Do you have any fun Easter craft ideas?

Also, have you seen my Easter egg popsicles? Or my Easter egg lunch idea? The kids love these too and together with the crafts above make the perfect kid friendly Easter play date!


  1. Love the bunny nose - so easy and so cute.

  2. just the thing for little hands

  3. Adorable bunny noses, love that idea! Did the kids glue the pipe cleaners and pink pom poms on? Or was that done with hot glue? Thanks for your post, as I'm looking for cute ideas for a Easter classroom crafts for 3 year olds :)

    1. The pipe cleaners were just twisted around the stick, and the noses glued on with white glue and left to dry.

  4. I love your idea of the bunny nose & whiskers! I am always searching for different little crafts to do with my daycare kids, and this is perfect! Thanks for all your hard work!
