I may be wrong, but I’m going to assume that – like me – you’re continuing to be in need of easy-to-pull-off, fun activities to keep your little people busy at home right now.
To keep the boredom at bay, we’ve curated an inspiring collection of joy filled Easter activities in the hopes of helping you navigate this time, while also adding some extra magic and fun to your time together.
With Easter is set to sure be quite different this year, these might help keep a little magic alive.
Take a look, and I hope they help. x
For Littles (the under 3s):
STICKY EASTER WINDOW
No glitter or glue in sight, we promise. A great way to use old wrapping paper, craft box bits and pieces and even cut or pressed flowers.
LOO ROLL BUNNY STENCILS
We had to have a toilet paper related activity, yeah? Seriously though, this one is sweet, easy to do, and only a teeny bit messy. Promise. x
POTATO MASH BUNNIES
A simple recipe for making Bunny fun and spot on for little ones who can’t quite master the paint brush yet.
Dip the potato masher into the white paint (make sure the entire surface is covered in paint so that it stamps a full circle) and stamp two circles, underneath each other, down the centre of the construction paper to make the bunny’s body. Leave room on the top for the bunny’s ears.
For Mediums (kinder age):
PAPER PLATE BUNNIES
Kids can help cut out the bunny ears and do all the gluing. All you need to do is gather the supplies.
POPSICLE STICK EASTER BASKETS
Super cute baskets, made using paper roll tube and craft sticks. This is a super quick and easy Easter craft idea for toddlers and preschoolers.
EASTER EGG SCISSOR SKILLS
Here’s a fun way to practise those scissor skills. I cut out the egg shapes, drew the lines across the eggs, and then asked our girls to cut along the lines. And, that’s it! Simple!
For Bigs (school kids):
SHAVING CREAM EGGS
My girls went mad for this! Fun, colour making magic with simple ingredients and display worthy results.
Start by squirting white shaving cream onto a cookie sheet and spreading it evenly. Drip different colour colouring onto the shaving cream. Take a straw a swirl the colours together to get a tie dye look.
Next, Roll an egg on one side into the colors and flip it over. Let it sit for 10 minutes and rinse clean. Voila!
SOCK BUNNIES (NEW SEWING REQUIRED!)
We all have socks without pairs, and we’ve found the perfect solution for finally dealing with the problem. Create families of these sweet bunny creations, no sewing skills needed! See full instructions here.
LOO ROLL CHARACTERS
Because we all know the deep need to collect toilet paper lately is going to leave a lot of these laying around 😂. So, here’s another loo roll idea. 🙂
You can put this activity together with recycled card, a marker pen, some easter stickers and pegs.
ORIGAMI BOOK MARKS
Saving my fav ’til last!
You can find the instructions here.
Hope some of these are helpful, friends!

May it be filled with so many memory making moments, warm hugs and chocolate comas.
