Are this kids counting down the days till the Easter Bunny arrives? I know my kiddo (who is 10, but still conveniently believes in the Easter Bunny) certainly is!
Whether you celebrate Easter’s religious meaning, or just enjoy the opportunity to spend a relaxing few days with the family; the week leading up to Easter is a great time to sit down and make some Easter crafts with the kids.
I’ve rounded up 10 easy-to-make Easter Craft projects that can be made with inexpensive craft supplies. There are craft ideas here that can be made with recycled egg cartons, paper cups and even buttons. Fire up the printer and print off some fun Easter craft activities to keep the kids entertained this week.
Children of all ages can enjoy all of these Easter crafts for kids, with just a little adult guidance.
Time to get crafting!
1. Easter Bunny Gift Box
How cute is this little Bunny Face Gift Box? I created it exclusively for Care.com and you can find the full instructions over on their ‘Magazine’ page. It’s very easy to make with only the simplest of craft supplies, even for the youngest of kids. Fill it with chocolate treats and give as a gift, or use it to store special treasures all year round.

4. Decoupage Easter Eggs
A very easy Easter craft project for children of all ages. Get the kids involved with every stage, including tearing up pieces of tissue paper and gluing the design onto the eggs. The finished eggs look lovely in a bowl and would make a pretty center piece for your Easter table.
