10 Super Fun Crafts to Do With the Grandkids This Easter
Easter is the perfect excuse for a little extra time with the grandkids, but you need to have some fun things planned in advance. Plan some fun crafts to do with the grandkids this Easter, and you’ll be the life of the party!
1. Easter bunny plates
If your grandkids are really young, why not do an easy, fun project that’s oh-so-Eastery? (Yes, we think Eastery should be a word.)
These adorable Easter bunny plates from The Best Ideas for Kids are made from simple craft supplies like pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and construction paper.
Let the young ones get creative and have a blast!
2. Peek-a-boo Clothespin Eggs
Do your grandkids like peek-a-boo? They’ll be extra excited – and likely full of giggles! – after making these simple clothespin eggs from Debbie at One Little Project.
This craft takes less than 5 minutes, but it’ll bring hours of entertainment. Trust us.
3. Emoji Eggs
If your grandkids are old enough to have a smartphone, they’ll particularly enjoy these emoji-decorated Easter eggs.
Kelly Mindell’s blog, Studio DIY, shows exactly how to make these, and all it takes is a few shades of craft paint and some paint markers.
4. No Sew Sock Bunny
Need a project that will end in a fun take-home gift? These no sew sock bunnies are cute and easy to make. All you need is a sock, twine, a market, rice, and scissors.
Handimania, a YouTube channel, shows us exactly how it’s done.
5. Make homemade flubber
Kate from the blog Laughing Kids Learn has super simple instructions for how to make homemade flubber. And yes, this isn’t exactly Easter-themed, but just dye the flubber pastel colors, and this fun craft will fit right in!
If you’ve never seen the movie Flubber, this fun substance is a rubbery form of playdoh, and it’s ultra fun to play with.
It only requires some water, Elmer’s glue, borax, and food coloring!
6. Bunny Butt Cookies
These Pillsbury Bunny Butt Cookies were just too cute to leave off the list. Break out your favorite sugar cookie recipe and get designing!
7. Handprint Flower Bouquet
If mom won’t kill you for the mess, break out the finger paints and make some one-of-a-kind flower bouquets.
No tutorial needed – the world is your oyster!
8. Peep Houses
This Eastertime spin on the gingerbread house is a must-make snack (if you can bear to actually eat it when you’re done!).
The “recipe” is on the blog Yesterfood, but thankfully, you don’t need much to build this house. Just don’t forget the peeps!
9. Modified Easter Egg Hunt for Toddlers
If your grandkids are still quite young, you know that a traditional Easter egg hunt could potentially last all day – and then you’ll realize one egg was never found when something starts to smell weird later on. No good!
Thanks to the blog Celebrations at Home, we have a solution! Switch it up by getting helium-filled balloons, and tie them to the eggs. That way, your little ones can have fun finding the eggs, and it’s not way too hard. Plus, who doesn’t love balloons?
10. Chick Finger Puppets
I mean really – what kid doesn’t get a kick out of finger puppets?
Rachel from I Heart Crafty Things has created a simple tutorial, and all you need is cardstock paper, a circle punch, some googly eyes, yellow feathers, and glue!
Does it even get any cuter than this?
