Create an Easter Tree
Christmas is an easy holiday for the kids to understand because you put up the tree and then count down for Santa.

Local discount stores have cute, affordable decorations or you can craft your own together! Bonus, your Easter Tree can be the centrepiece for your family Easter lunch! A gorgeous new tradition to continue for years to come.

Record their Tiny Hands and Feet
I’m a total sucker for any kind of craft that records the size of my children at any particular moment. There’s stacks of examples of Pinterest but this little rabbit motif made with a hand is perfect for a fun project now and something to slip into the baby book as a keepsake for later on. Easy to make and don’t forget to pop the date on so you know what year it was made!

Bake Easter Cupcakes
If you’re top-notch cooks there’s no shortage of amazing Easter cupcake inspiration on Pinterest. But if you’re an average cook that just wants to have fun with their kids you can’t beat these super cute cupcake wrappers that bring some Easter flair! Get even smarter and mass produce muffins in them, yes, it’s Easter craft – but you’re secretly going to freeze a big batch for next terms’ school morning teas! Winning!
Make (or buy) bunting and decorate the home!
Bunting is a festive way to add some more Easter fun to your home. Older kids can try to make their own – we love this idea which gets that on-trend ombre look using paint colour sample cards. If you aren’t up to making your own you can buy Easter bunting very cheaply and the kids will as much enjoy the installation as they would have the actual making. And, bonus, there’s much, much less mess!
