Welcome Spring! I decided that this was the perfect time to share 5 Eggcellent (Hah, Get it?! Of course you do, I always said you were super smart) Easter Craft Ideas for kids. It’s one of my favourite times of year and Easter is fast approaching. So without further ado, let’s get on to the list!
5 Excellent Easter Craft Ideas For Kiddos To Make This Weekend!
I was thrilled to have Ayda of Cafenohut create this Easter craft project for us a few years ago. It’s a beautiful project and so easy to make! You can also source all of your supplies easily somewhere like DollarTree. These napkins, in particular, are adorable. So stock up on supplies; napkins, eggs, decoupage glue and a paint brush.
Dyed Eggs For The Easter Egg Hunt!
You can buy a set of 4 colors for $1 (what a steal!) and then get creative for more colors. To create a purple color, mix blue and red. Want orange eggs just for the heck of it? Mix red and yellow. You see? It’s so much easier than you think!
Mix the food coloring in separate bowls of water and roll each peeled egg in a color. Set aside to dry. You will probably need a lot of paper towels because you WILL make a mess.
Then wait until the kids go to bed, get drunk and hide those things so nobody knows where they are!
Painted Character Eggs
Draw little faces on the eggs and take a pipe cleaner, shape into a swirling shape and glue to the base of the egg. So now you have a fancy egg on a stand! The last step is to make ears or a party hat to glue on top of the egg.

Painted Polka Dot Eggs
I think these eggs may be my favourite project. Purely because they are so simple but so incredibly effective! To create the polka dot effects in different sizes, you can use cotton buds, daubers, and even finger tips. It’s especially useful if you have kids of different ages to make different sized dots.
This list is packed full of some great ideas to keep the kiddos entertained coming up to Easter! If you are celebrating with the kids, either throwing parties or hosting a fancy lunch, you can use these egg projects to help you decorate.
