Here’s 5 easy Easter activities to make with kids. Spending time together on a food, or craft, activity is an awesome way to make some memories during your time off together.
Easter is a lovely time to spend together as a family. Everyone gets a few days off to enjoy each other’s company. It’s a great excuse to have some sweet treats you wouldn’t normally indulge in. And the whole spirit of giving and receiving is played out in millions of households.
A really great way to enjoy this time together is to try out a few new activities with the kids. You can make these to use, or to share with friends and family. Just enjoy the time you have together, and don’t fuss too much about the finished product!
Have fun and Happy Easter!
Here’s 5 easy Easter activities to make with kids
Dyed easter eggs
Dying eggs is super simple and a great way to brighten up your easter morning.
What you need
Paper towel or newspaper
Hard boiled egg
Bowl or cup deep enough to completely submerge an egg
Tongs, egg dipper, or slotted spoon
½ cup boiling water
1 teaspoon white vinegar
Liquid food colouring (about 20 drops per colour)
What to do
Make sure your eggs are hard-boiled and cooled
Protect your working surface with newspaper
Fill a containers with the water, vinegar and food colouring (Do this for each colour you want to use)
Place egg on a spoon and dunk, turning occasionally so both sides get coloured. Keep in the liquid for about 5 minutes. The longer you leave it the darker the colour.
Once you have dipped them you can place them back in the egg carton to dry.
Cute Easter egg heads
Seriously how cute are these easter egg heads. They a fun and easy to make and best of all kids love them.
Material you will need
- hard-boilded egg
- stiff card
- small pompoms
- pipe cleaners
What to do
Using a cool hard-boiled egg paint your egg and then let them dry. You could also dye them using the method above.
While your egg is drying make a little cone hat and glue a pompom on the top. Then cut out a pair of bunny ears to stick on
When the paint is dry using a vivid or black marker draw on a face.
Tape the hats and ears on your egg. For the hat you can tape it from the inside. For the ears I just stuck it down at the back or you could use a little glue.
Make a coil with your pipe cleaner and sit the egg on it.
These make a great centre piece for your easter table.
If you don’t like the idea of wasting eggs a good idea is to use the egg blowing technique.
These are a fun craft that would be great to do for breakfast during Easter.
Material you will need:
- Ziplock bag
- Food colour
What to do
First hard boil your egg. Let the egg cool a little then tap on a hard surface all overto crack the shell.
Place egg in Ziplock bag and add a few drops of food colour. Roll the egg around until its evenly coloured. Remove egg and rinse with water then peel.
Chocolate crispy nests
Here is an easy craft you can do that makes a sweet little treat to have around for Easter.
- 60 grams butter
- 100 grams chocolate
- 3 Tbsp Golden syrup

- Chocolate mini eggs
- Cupcake cases
Melt butter and chocolate together in a bowl, add golden syrup and stir to combine. Add rice bubbles and mix carefully until the rice bubbles are coated evenly. Place spoonfuls in cupcake cases and top with a mini egg.
I made these this year instead of just buying hollow eggs. They were super easy and a bit more personal as you can pop in the favourite treats of the person your giving it to. I bought little Easter Bible verse cards for 30 cents but you could get creative and make it even more personal by making these.
What you will need:
- Cellophane bags (I bought mine from 1 2 3 dollar store)
- Easter chicks (I bought mine from 1 2 3 dollar store)
- Bible verse cards
- Assorted chocolate eggs, jellybeans, chocolate bunnies etc

Place card in bag then fill with sweet treats and a fluffy chick.
