With the kids hopping around the house this Easter, keep them busy with these creative Easter activities…
Keep your kids entertained in the run up to the Easter weekend – and away from chocolate-fuelled sugar highs – with these Easter craft activities. Fun and simple to make at home, they’re bound to delight.
Easter Bunny Mask
What You Need:
- 1 paper plate
- 3 paper straws, cut in half
- colour markers
- string or ribbon
Step 1: Draw a template of the rabbit nose onto a paper plate (see below) and carefully cut away the bottom half of the plate.
Step 2: Cut the rim of the plate in half and colour them in (see below). These are your bunny ears.
Step 3: Glue the ears to the top of the plate, attach the whiskers to the nose (we used tape) and pierce two holes on each side of the plate and thread ribbon through them to attach to your head.
Bunny Table Decoration:
What You Need:
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Coloured Napkins
- Black Marker Pen
- String or Ribbon
Step 1: Fold the napkin diagonally, into a large triangle.
Step 2: Roll up the napkin lengthways.
Step 4: Place the egg in the middle, tying ribbon securely above it so the napkin resembles bunny ears.
Step 5: Draw a bunny face on the egg with a black marker pen as a final touch.
An Egg-cellent Easter Egg Hunt
Keep your kids entertained this Easter by rustling up some homemade treats and hiding them around your house to create the ultimate springtime Easter egg hunt. We’ve even created a couple of sign posts to keep everyone on the right track!
We’ve created a ten-step Easter trail for your kids to follow, leading them to the Easter treasure. Write each clue to the back of our Easter Egg Hunt sign posts or write them out onto small pieces of coloured paper. Weather dependant, you can throw a couple of your own clues into the mix to get the kids running about outside. If, however, it’s drizzly or you don’t have access to a garden, simply use our clues to create the perfect indoor Easter trail.
Planning your Easter Egg Hunt:

- Cut them out with a pair of scissors.
