What does Easter mean to you? Going to church with the whole family? Eating copious amounts of chocolate? Organising an egg hunt in the garden? Or how about settling down to some serious craft making with a big tray of colourful pens, glitter and goodies? Sometimes, there’s nothing like a creative afternoon with your little ones to make memories and establish family traditions. Kick off the festivities this spring with these simple ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
1. Create your own egg patterns
Where’s the fun in just dunking your eggs in dye? With so many chocolate eggs kicking around at Easter, it’s nice to have a go at creating your own bright and colourful patterns on real, hard-boiled eggs. Here are a few suggestions to get you started: www.parents.com/holiday/easter/crafts/creative-ways-to-dye-easter-eggs/
Let their creativity shine through with this fun and vibrant way to make Easter egg art. Use Sharpie markers which look incredibly bright and bold against the shiny tin foil. See here: https://iheartcraftythings.com/tin-foil-easter-egg-art.html
If you carefully unwrap your chocolate eggs, you can also use the foil wrappers to make your own funky pictures too. Ideas here: http://cookcleancraft.com/2013/03/easter-egg-foil-art-tutorial/
To help your children feel like their artwork is worthy of displaying, why not dedicate an entire window to it? And these simple and effective homemade stained-glass egg suncatchers are a beautiful and bright way to brighten up your home this Easter – and they’re lots of fun to make too!

Once you’ve designed all your Easter craft bits, you’ll need something lovely to carry them all in, plus any chocolate goodies you receive! If you prefer to have it on show, you can also use it to put chocolate eggs or decorations in and then use it to display them in front of friends and family. https://www.parents.com/holiday/easter/crafts/make-an-easter-bag/
5. Bake some cute Easter treats
If you’ve got family visiting for Easter, it can be fun to come up with a couple of baking projects which the kids can get involved with too. We love these cute vanilla chick biscuit pops topped with buttercream and chocolate chips and delicious Easter bunnies
