With a week of school holidays before Easter I have been having a think about what we can get up to at home in preparation for the weekend. As Ed will be working all weekend, it will just be Garth and I but I really want to celebrate Easter even though we won’t be having a big sit down family get together.
I have been scouring my beloved Pinterest for inspiration and my favourite 10 Easter crafts are listed here with links to the websites (if Pinterest provides the link) if you fancy giving any of them a go yourself! I think most of them are pretty adult and child friendly so we can all have a go at making them.
I was thinking of making these cards and baskets as small gifts for family and friends, super simple, super easy and fun all at the same time. Easter crafts with a purpose!
3. Pompom Bunny
Since buying a pompom maker at Christmas I have become strangely addicted to making them but am always stuck for ideas as to what I can actually make out of all the pompoms I have made. Am definitely going to give this super cute Easter craft idea a go. This is one for me I think!
I love crafts that require minimum adult input and this one is super simple. Great for scissor skills too if you aren’t too worried about creating a perfect example.
I particularly love how this idea can make an artist out of anyone. We will be cracking open the watercolours next week.
Salt dough or clay stars were a big hit at Christmas so an Easter version is a great idea. Poundland had some Easter cutters which would work really well with this project. I loved the picture below as a great idea on how to display all your fab creations.
8. Easter Masks
Super simple and would make a great prop for some Easter family photographs.
I am totally in love with these!!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my suggestions and if you have any of your own I would love to see them, please do share. Happy crafting!
