Easter is early this year, and it’s not far off now. In just a few short weeks, the kids will be running around with their Easter baskets, doing their egg hunts, and collecting the chocolates and goodies that the Easter bunny left for them.
That means it’s time to get cracking with our Easter crafts! Over the next few weeks, I’m sure we’ll be busy making lots of bunny, chick and egg crafts, but in the meantime, I’d like to get you started with a few of my favourite Easter crafts from past years.
Here are 10 easy Easter crafts for kids of all ages to make. Some of these projects, like the Easter Wreath and our Stained Glass Eggs are easy enough for toddlers to make, while others, such as the Easter Finger Puppets and our Eric Carle Inspired Easter Eggs can be enjoyed by older kids.
Ok! Let’s hop right to it! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
