Easy Spring and Easter Crafts for Kids

You came to the right place if you are searching for free, easy spring and Easter crafts for kids!  

Now is the time to get started finding those spring crafts for your kids or for your classroom that will get everyone excited for the bright new season on the way!

Since you’re on this website, you know that I LOVE to be crafty, and I found that both my own children and the elementary aged kids that I taught found crafts that were related to holidays or new seasons to be the most fun to work on.

There was always a true sense of excitement when we made seasonal crafts! 

We have put together a great list of projects with easy to follow directions and some with video tutorials that both you and the kiddos will love. Keeping with the spring and Easter theme, we have a great Easter decoupage frame tutorial that you might like!

For the younger ones, or any child who needs practice with fine motor skills, we found a great bunny lacing craft.  It is easy to make, and the finished lacing project can be used over and over for fun practice to improve hand-eye coordination.  Why purchase expensive lacing cards when you can make your own?

We found several cute crafts that involve using the child’s handprint as part of the projects. 

I kept all of my kids handprint crafts, dated of course, and would look back with fascination at those once tiny fingers that had held my hand.

You can’t go wrong with handprint crafts!  Kids find it fun to see their hands as part of a project, and the handprint crafts make great gifts for grandparents.

If your family has a tradition of decorating boiled eggs for Easter, there are a couple of novel decorating ideas that you will find below.

Skip that boring kit at the store and let your creativity flow!  One project uses crayon shavings and the other uses tissue paper. The kids will love trying something new this year.

We also have gathered a few crafts with printables that you can use, making things easier for you.

Paper plates, cups and spoons are probably in your house right now, just waiting to be used in a craft.  Many of the ideas below include the use of these ready household items so you can get started right away. Bunny Treat Cup - Finished

Check out the cute and simple bunny treat cup.  It is a great kids’ craft idea and can be made for a spring party or as part of a spring classroom event. To see another of our treat holders, you can find a fabric bunny bag tutorial here.

Origami is always fun, and there are several crafts below that involve the art of folding to create something from a simple piece of paper.  You’ll find printable cootie catchers, tutorials to make bunny treat holders, and many more.Origami Bunny Face

One of the projects that I thought was both easy and beautiful is the black glue and watercolor resist.  The raised black lines against the bright colors make a lovely craft for kids of all ages.  Even adults will find this a fun project!

Be sure not to miss the edible jelly bean slime recipe!  It’s a great Easter STEM activity AND it’s edible!!!  What kid doesn’t like to eat slime?  But seriously, you know those young kids do like any project they can eat, especially one that tastes like candy. 

We have all of these plus many more easy spring and Easter crafts for kids below!
