- Paper roll bunnies – Save all those toilet paper rolls and use them for this simple and sweet craft project.
- Fun Easter egg painting idea – For something a little bit different, swap out paintbrushes for thick pieces of cardboard and scrape paint onto Easter eggs.
- Easter bunny footprints – Little feet + paint + canvas = a keepsake parents will love. Promise!
- Sparkly tissue paper eggs – Use paper mache eggs to create a messy, sparkly and thoroughly adorable craft project.
- Bunny paper plates – A great one if you’re looking to minimise the dent in your art supplies – this project simply calls for paper plates, pom poms, pipe cleaners and glue.
- Hand print flower art and more – Some clever and a beautiful ideas for Easter-themed paintings.
- Easter egg potato stamps – The children will have a ball making colourful prints using cut-out potato stamps. Top tip: oval-shaped potatoes work best for this activity.
- Tissue paper easter eggs – A great way for the children to celebrate the season and boost their fine-motor skills.
- Paper plate sheep mask – Sheep are synonymous with Easter too, are they not? Either way, this cute woolly sheep paper-plate mask is too sweet to pass up.
