Easter is a time for sharing quality time with family; hiding eggs for the kids; and having a bit of a chocolate-fest. Here are some fun craft activities to help you celebrate.
Simple enough for the two-year-olds and still enjoyable for an eight-year-old - these contact (clear or tinted sticky book wrap) and tissue paper eggs from Share and Remember make a lovely window display.

Easter Egg Hunt Basket Ideas
Involve the kids with making a basket to take on their egg hunt. Here are a few cute ideas: paper plate bunny with instructions on Jellyfish, upcycled fizzy drink bottle from Easy Child Crafts, and these adorable Easter baskets from Paging Fun Mums on Essential Kids.
Toilet Paper Rolls:
There is always an abundance of empty toilet paper rolls in everyone's house, so why not craft up these funny little bunnies in time for Easter. Top Left: bunny shapes from Toys in the Dryer, bottom Left: cute little pink roll from TP Craft, right: tall bunny from Ecoscrapbook
Half a potato is usually a perfect egg shape - perfectly suitable for some potato stamps as found on SassyDealz - perhaps you can create your own Easter wrapping paper. Another idea is to use those plastic eggs to make a decorative paper egg, from Kids Activities Blog
OK, so the classic bunny from the traditional art of balloon folding might be a bit more advanced for the average beginner, but if you are keen to try, here are some instructions. Or for something simpler and very effective to decorate around Easter time, some lovely egg decorated balloons to hang from the ceiling from Reading Confetti.
EASTER BONUS: Here is our Easter activity list from last year, with many more great ideas to keep the kids busy over the school holidays.
