I adore the Easter holiday. I have such warm memories of waking up and finding a new basket waiting for me stuffed with chocolate and a new soft toy. As my own daughter grows, I’m having a wonderful time creating holiday memories through crafting together. Here are some fun crafts to make with your wee ones this Easter:
When I came across this craft on Clear & Simple Stamps, I thought it was incredibly adorable. Placing a few of these bunny bags on my mantel with my other Easter décor added a super sweet touch.
For a full set of instructions visit this page. Here’s a condensed set of instructions!
- Brown paper lunch bag
- Cotton balls
- At the top of the paper bags, draw a “v”. This will become the bunny ears.
- Cut the “v” line and discard the excess paper.
- Create a fold at the bottom of the bag about one inch from the bottom.
- Open the bag.
- Fill the bag with treats (might I suggest Delysia’s Easter Truffle collection featuring peanut butter, white chocolate and marshmallow flavors) or with any sort of stuffing.
- Cinch the base of the ears and tie with the twine.
- Glue one cotton ball onto the base to create a fluffy tail.
All done! So cute and sweet.
Coffee Filter Easter Eggs
I love this craft. It’s great for children of all ages and uses supplies you most likely already have in your home.
For this craft you’ll need:
- Large white coffee filters (brown/recycled filters work great too; the colors will just be a little more muted)
- Spray bottle filled with water
- Foil tray / water proof area
- Using the markers, color the coffee filters in any pattern or any way that your child wants. Encourage them to have fun with this!
- Take the colored filter and place it in a tray (or some sort of container that will catch the extra water droplets)
- Wet the coffee filters with the water from the spray bottle. Everyone will see the colors start to bleed and blend.
- Let the filter dry.
- Using the scissors, help you child cut an egg shape out.
- Display your child’s new colorful egg!
Chocolate Bunny Mason Jar
I saved my favorite craft for last. This is my favorite because it includes chocolate! I love the versatility of mason jars and this craft is charming, easy, and sweet all in one. You can make this using all edible pieces if you choose.
For this craft you’ll need:
- Candy grass (or the plastic kind)
- Mini Easter eggs (fake or chocolate)
- Mason jars (use a larger jar to make sure you can fit the chocolate bunny inside)
- Delysia’s Chocolate Easter bunny (in milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate flavors)
- Twine or ribbon
- You and your child will place the grass first in the bottom of the mason jar.
- Next, place the chocolate bunny in the middle of grass, standing upright.
- Once the bunny is situated, you and your child can add in the mini Easter eggs into the jar.
- You could even add in jelly beans!
- Screw the lid onto the jar. Tie twine or ribbon around the top for a finishing touch.
This craft could be a wonderful décor piece in your home or would make a wonderful gift to share with your child’s teacher, friends, or family.
Enjoy this wonderful holiday with your family!
