Keep the kids busy with Easter craft ideas

The school holidays are upon us again, so here’s a couple of Easter projects to keep the kids occupied, without breaking the bank. It’s easy to find Easter craft themes and you can get hold of craft supplies such as coloured feathers, pom-poms and googly eyes easily and cheaply at local stationary suppliers. Time to get out that glitter and glue again!

Make an Easter basket

Turn an old ice-cream or yoghurt tub into an Easter basket. Cover with wrapping or craft paper and make a handle with ribbon or old fabric. To decorate, the kids can print out and colour in Easter clip art, and stick on sequins, feathers and coloured paper shapes. Line with shredded paper or coloured tissue and voila, a magnificent Easter basket ready to fill with Easter goodies. Use for an Easter egg hunt or fill with home-made biscuits or treats for a thoughtful present for relations.

Soup up Easter lunch

Make Easter lunch extra egg-citing (sorry) for the kids with a special Easter menu and place cards for each visitor. Stick the place cards to thin card for extra strength. If they’re feeling more adventurous start with one of the basic place card templates and enhance with Easter clip art, pens, craft feathers and lots of imagination.
