Make bunny ears
Everyone loves the Easter bunny, right? He’s cute and he’s always kitted out with plenty of chocolate: what’s not to love? Well, why not make a pair of Easter bunny ears with your toddler, so they can play dress-up as their favourite fictional bunny, at least when Bugs isn’t around! It’s the perfect Easter craft idea for kids.
Easter egg hunt
What could be better than a hunt for chocolate? A small-scale Easter egg hunt in your garden could be the perfect Easter idea for kids, giving them the chance to have fun and burn some energy in the process! Whether you get them to make the clues or paint the eggs, the Easter egg hunt is one of the most iconic elements of any Easter, so your kids are sure to love helping out!
Make a chick
Do your kids love stuffed animals? Why not engage your child’s creativity by getting them to make one of their own? By using pom-poms, googly eyes, felt and wire, they can make a cute chick that’ll sit on their drawers or bedside table, making this one of the perfect Easter ideas for toddlers.
By making a bunny piñata – filling it up with plenty of sweets and choccies – you can bring a certain sweetness to your toddler’s Easter. It’s the perfect centrepiece for an Easter party, and your toddler will love every moment of making it. It’s made exactly like a regular piñata, only it’s shaped like a bunny!
Instead of leaving your Easter eggs in their boring packaging, why not make a tree for Easter. Then, when the special day comes around, your kids can have fun plucking their chocolatey treats of the tree that they made themselves.

It’ll look great in your living room, and it’s a great Easter craft idea for children who like exercising their creative muscles.
