31 Easter crafts for kids including egg decorating ideas, arts and crafts projects, other Easter activities, and a list of recommend children’s picture books about Easter.
Easter is coming up!
We like to spend the month leading up to Easter trying out a variety of Easter egg decorating ideas (sometimes with blown-out eggs or wooden eggs, sometimes with hard-boiled eggs that we don’t plan to eat), making Easter crafts (our colorful mini baskets were a big hit last year), and doing Easter art activities (back-and-forth Easter egg drawings are one our go-to favorites).
Want some fun ideas for your family for this month?
Here are more than 31 Easter activities—enough for one a day or simply pick and choose a few to try. There’s everything here from awesome Easter egg decorating ideas, the best Easter crafts for kids, simple Easter art activities, some fun ideas to try with egg cartons, and even some egg science!
FREE PRINTABLE! – I also have these activities in an attractive 2-page PDF that you can print out and hang on your fridge as reference. Plus all the links are clickable to take you to the activity instructions!
