Easter DIY Projects
Before the Easter bunny delivers the Easter candy, have your kids join in the Easter fun. They can color printables, create crafts, and play Easter-inspired games. Let’s hop down the bunny trail and explore some fun and free Easter DIY projects for you to do with your children.


Easy Easter DIY Projects


Printables

DLTK has a bunch of different printables for you and your children to have fun for hours. Your kids can create bookmarks, cards, and t-shirt designs using our transfer paper. Print these pages in black and white and let your children color in the drawings of bunnies or flowers. With these printables, kids can draw faces on a hatched chick, bunnies, and lambs.

Want more coloring options? Try one of the many Easter designs here or here at First Palette.

If you’re throwing an Easter party or have to bring cupcakes into school, print out these cupcake toppers.

Giving a last-minute Easter gift? You can easily print pretty Easter gift tags in no time. (Just don’t forget to use fresh ink in your printer.)

Crafts

In addition to printables, First Palette has a bunch of craft projects. Most are less than 10 steps. Below are a few of our favorites.

Peep, peep! Baby birds need a home. To build a nest for baby birds, you will need:
  • Paper plate or paper bowl
  • Brown tempera or poster paint
  • Large pompoms
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Orange craft foam, felt or paper
  • White glue
  • Safety scissors
  • Paint brush
  • For nesting material: paper shreds, brown crepe paper, raffia, or natural materials, such as small twigs

A “carrot” cone holder can hold Easter candy and trinkets. Here’s what you will need:
  • Orange heavy cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Tacky glue, white glue, or double-sided tape
  • Ribbon or pipe cleaner
  • Optional decorative materials, such as lace, stickers, sequins, or glitter

This hatched chick is too cute. The necessary materials are:
  • Cardboard egg carton

You can also craft a cotton bunny and many more charming designs at First Palette.

Games

Why not check out some of the Easter games we’ve featured before? Besides the usual Easter egg hunt, swap the donkey for a rabbit in “pin the nose on the bunny.” Another fun, simple option is the “jellybean toss” in which kids toss as many jellybeans in a cup within a set time period. Take the fun outside and host an “egg on a spoon race.” Kids race to the finish line while balancing an egg on a spoon. Dropped eggs = disqualification. First one to cross the line with the egg intact on the spoon wins!
