Crafty ideas for the Easter holidays

Get creative with your little ones this Easter with these influencer-approved activities

The Easter holidays are here, which happily means more time spent with your littles. It does however mean you need to think of ways to keep little hands and minds occupied, particularly on any (inevitable) rainy days. So, we turned to some of our craftiest influencers in the hunt for Easter-themed activities that are toddler-friendly, creative (but not too tricky) and thrifty (these can all be done with bits and bobs you’ll probably have at home.)

Eco-Friendly Easter Chicks

  • Coffee Filters or cupcake liners
  • Yellow, black & orange paint
  • Conchiglie pasta
  • Yellow feathers
Colour a flattened cup cake liner or a circle cutout of a coffee filter using a yellow paint marker. Glue this onto a recycled piece of cardboard. Then, glue an orange painted piece of Conchiglie pasta as a beak and draw the eyes and legs with paint markers. Finally, glue on yellow feathers for wings and on top of the chicks’ heads.

Easter jar lanterns

  • Recycled jars
  • Mod Podge
  • Coloured transparent paper
  • Cookie cutters
  • Scissors
  • Brushes
  • Ribbon or string
We love using candles and not just in the dark seasons. Theses jars look pretty on the dining table or hanging from a tree in your garden.
