4 Easter craft ideas to try at home

4 Easter craft ideas to try at home

Bunnies, Easter egg hunts, chocolate and public holidays—what’s there not to love about Easter? Get into the swing of Easter with these DIY crafts that the whole family will enjoy.

Secret patterned eggs
Dyed eggs are a popular and fun Easter craft activity. Jazz up your dyed eggs this year with a simple trick; use a white crayon to draw a secret pattern or message onto a white egg. When you drop the egg into the dye, your pattern won’t absorb the colour, leaving you with eggs that spell out a unique message or pattern. Kids will love the element of ‘magic’ and seeing their patterns and messages revealed!

Decorate biscuits to look like Easter eggs!
Easter crafts don’t come any easier than this. Use a packet of Milk Arrowroot biscuits to create a sweet Easter treat! Simply spread coloured icing over a Milk Arrowroot biscuit to create a flat working surface and decorate with icing pens, chocolate buttons, or other edible decorations. You can also use fondant icing for a smoother finish.

DIY paper Easter baskets

What would Easter be without an Easter egg hunt? Help the kids make their own collection basket ahead of this year’s egg hunt.

You’ll need:

  • 2 different colours of craft paper (30-45cm long)
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue, stapler or glue gun
  1. Use the ruler and pencil to mark the paper into 2.5cm strips, then cut each strip. You should end up with a minimum of 10 strips.
  2. Once all the paper has been cut into strips, lay down 4 strips of alternating colours.
  3. Create a basket weave by threading 4 strips of paper in alternating colours through the paper that has been laid already. Stick down.
  4. Take 1 strip of paper and bend it around the top of the basket, creating the edging.
  5. Use the final strip to create a handle for the basket and staple or glue down to secure.

Decorative (and delicious) Easter jars

Not only are Easter jars fun to create, but they will brighten up your home and the best part is that you can eat the stuff inside! To create your Easter jar you’ll need:

  • Coloured eggs (either pink, white or yellow for creating a bunny, duck or baby chick respectively)
  • Mason jars
  • Permanent marker
  • Glue
  • Orange or pink coloured craft paper
  1. Firstly, draw two black ovals on to the jar to create the eyes of your bunny, duck or chick.
  2. If you’re creating a chick or duck, cut a piece of orange cardboard into a triangle and stick the triangle onto the jar upside-down. This will form the beak!
  3. If you’re creating a bunny face, cut the pink cardboard into an oval shape and stick it onto the jar to create your bunny’s nose. Draw whiskers coming out of the nose to complete the bunny face.
  4. Finally, fill each jar with the coloured eggs!

Option: tie a pretty pink or orange ribbon around the lid if you’re giving these jars as Easter gifts
