If you’re looking for Easter crafts for kids to make, here are 11 of our family’s favorites from the past few years, including eggs, nests, and suncatchers.

11 Easter Crafts for Kids to Make

In case you’re looking for some Easter crafts for kids, here are a bunch of fun ideas that we’ve done over the years, including Easter eggs of all kinds, birds’ nests, suncatchers, and more.

I fully believe in open-ended, process-oriented art activities for kids.


We really enjoy our holiday craft projects, too.

Some of which are admittedly a bit less open-ended.

At Christmas, we make salt dough ornaments and decorative garlands. In the month leading up to Halloween, we create spiderwebs and bats and Jack-o’-lanterns out of paper or fabric or yarn. Around Thanksgiving, we turn playdough and feathers into turkeys.

And at Easter? As Easter approaches, we decorate dozens of Easter eggs, make bunny ears, and create birds’ nests all different ways.

So, today, with Easter approaching, I thought I’d share some of our favorite Easter crafts for kids. Here goes…
