As the country is set for another comfortable Easter indoors with the family, Easter crafts and egg hunts will become all the rage. While it’s all too tempting to just buy some pre-made baskets, hints and eggs for an instant setup, we at Groupon figured we could find some of the best DIY Easter crafts that’ll keep both you and the kids entertained for hours, all on a budget. From customised egg hunt clues, to a guide on how to make an Easter bonnet, here’s our personal selection of this year’s finest Easter craft activities you can do at home.
The youngest in the family are simultaneously the easiest and most difficult people to entertain, so it’s a godsend that there are so many fun Easter crafts on the market. Pick from dozens of Easter craft kits at eBay to keep your kids’ creativity buzzing with an array of decorations, markers and colouring templates. If you’d like to keep the mess to a minimum, try these dotty stick art picture sets and see what ingenious designs come out of your little ones’ heads – they may just be a mini Picasso! On the other end of the spectrum, these sand and glitter picture sheets are the eBay Easter decorations built for fun, chaotic families, with options to colour anything from dinosaurs and bugs to fairies and bunnies. All of these options can be done indoors, so there’s no need to worry if the heavens open for a wet Easter weekend. Whatever Easter crafts for toddlers you settle on this Spring, remember to use our latest eBay discount code to cut the cost of your creativity.
Families with school-age children will find no shortage of Easter crafts for kids. While making baskets or an Easter garland are good ideas for family fun, we think making homemade Easter clothes are a more creative Easter idea. You can kick things off with a Baker Ross Easter bonnet that your kids can craft from scratch. There are plenty of Easter arts and crafts to get creative – with foam, glue, paint and paper bonnet cut-outs available in every colour of the rainbow. If you’d like something a little sturdier, we recommend this tutorial from The Works featuring pre-woven bonnets that can then be bunnied up with your choice of pom-poms, felt and pipe cleaners. For a more unconventional choice, get your hands on the latest notonthehighstreet discount code to try out two T-shirt creative kits for the price of one. Including stencils and eco-friendly inks, these artsy sets make for a great way to brew some friendly competition between siblings, with clothing canvases vying to be best in the house.
When the sun is shining, Easter egg hunts are easily the standout event of the weekend. With everyone at home this year, make the effort and to craft your own unique version with our collection of Easter hunt ideas from across the web. To get your kids excited before it even begins, have them try out decorating their own papier-mâché Easter eggs from Hobbycraft – there’s even a step-by-step walkthrough to help. Don't forget to grab our latest Hobbycraft vouchers to keep those craft costs low! Once that’s done, you can ready the search with some free printable Easter egg hunt clues from Party Delights, or feel free to write your own if you’ve got some riddles ready to go! From there you can use a Party Delights discount code to spruce up your lawn with some paper Easter crafts such as signs, cut-outs and bunny trails. There’s also Easter egg hunt kits for budget shoppers who want all the essentials in a single affordable package. If you’re an older Easter-lover living in a shared house instead, check out this blog post by Party Delights on egg hunts for adults so you can have your own share of the fun.
We all know every holiday is better with dessert, so we figured we could make your Good Friday even better by helping you decorate an Easter cake with the family. Whether you want to make a traditional fruitcake or just buy some indulgent chocolate cupcakes, the real fun comes with arranging some Easter cake decorations. Make the most of an Amazon discount code and indulge in a solid line-up of edible cake toppings ranging from crisp gold leaf sheets to tiny wafer carrots. For more natural-looking alternatives, nab a few dozen of these edible sugar pansies from Etsy to welcome in Spring – you could even sprinkle on some edible grass for that added authenticity. Adult houses, on the other hand, could approach things more casually by adding some seasonal-themed icing to homemade cupcakes with this Easter stencil food topper. More laidback customers can appreciate the weekend by using the same stencil to top their morning coffee with cocoa bunnies or egg baskets.
