Easy Easter Crafts

Updated on May 27, 2010

As Easter approaches you may be on a budget, which means that you’re not going to be able to go out and spend a fortune on the crafts that one would want to do on Easter. In this article we’re going to cover some easy Easter crafts that you can do alone or with your kids. One of the first and most known crafts is decorating eggs, however you don’t always have the time to go out and buy the necessary dyes in order to do this. When you want to dye eggs but don’t have dye you can always go and grab your kitchen’s supply of food coloring and mix it with just enough water to dip the egg in. When you do this and dip your egg in the colored water it will come out the color of the food coloring, which allows you the same effect as expensive dyes.

Next on our list of things you can do for Easter without breaking the bank is a foam Easter rabbit plant stake. That may sound complicated, but in all reality all you need is a jumbo craft stick, some craft foam, paper, scissors glue, a marker and if you want some paint. Now here’s how to make the thing. First you paint the craft stick itself and let it dry. Next draw a picture of a bunny on a piece of the foam paper. You’re going to want to use the picture as a pattern to cut the shapes out of it from the craft foam. Next glue the pieces together. After that cut a piece of the foam 4x1 ½ for the sign that the bunny will be holding. Next glue the feet to the bottom of the sign and craft stick, and voila you now have a little bunny that you can put into a potted plant. This is sure to be a hit with the children. 

Next on our list are some of the games and activities you can do with Easter egg printables. These are available at www.daniellesplace.com. One of these such activities is the match game. To play this game you print out two copies on to card stocks. Then you play memory with them, a card game in which you try to match one card with it’s equal by remembering where each card is located. Next you can have an Easter egg hunt with them. This may not have the same allure as an Easter egg hunt with real Easter eggs, but it’s much less expensive and the printables don’t give off the same smell that a real egg would if it isn’t found.

These are only a few of the many activities you can do if you’re on a budget this Easter season, but given these tools and ideas I’m sure you can come up with a few of your own creative easy Easter crafts to do with your children, or the children in your life. Remember you don’t have to have a big budget to do these easy Easter crafts.
