Easter is right around the corner and egg hunts will be the only thing your kids will ever talk about for the next days to come. You can tide them over and keep the excitement with Easter crafts you can make together.
Much like how Christmas is anticipated, kids also mark their kiddie calendars for Easter. And, it’s perfectly understandable why! Easter eggs are colorful and filled with yummy sweets! I still remember getting my own Easter eggs when I was younger. I always looked forward to the different chocolates I’d find inside.
But, until then, it can be hard dealing with overly excited kids. Check out these easter crafts to keep them occupied.
Fun & Easy Easter Crafts
1Easter Bunny Bookmark
An easter bunny bookmark is perfect for your kids who are starting to be book worms. It’s a great way to keep the childhood fun even in the midst of furthering their knowledge in advance. How cute would that look on the edge of the book pages instead of dog-earing them, right?
See how to make the origami here.
2Easter Egg Potato
How cool would stamping easter eggs on paper using a potato be? I’d say it would be a crafting experience for the books. Don’t let them do the carving, though. These easter crafts are the kinds you do with them. So, the carving is definitely your task. ;)

3Easter Dirt Cake
Don’t worry. It’s not actual dirt and this is one of those easter crafts that are actually edible. The dirt cake is made of Jello, cream cheese, Oreos and whipped cream. Sounds like a winning tasty combo, right? Give it a go so you know. Check it out here.
I bet you’ve never thought of painting using a fork. I certainly have never thought of it. But, that’s the great thing about easter crafts or any kind of craft for that matter. You can be as creative and as resourceful as your imagination permits.
