Children’s Craft Activities for Easter

It’s that time of year where bunnies, chicks and eggs are popping up everywhere and it can only mean one thing… Easter is here!

The big day is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about Craft activities for Easter.

Celebrating Easter in your setting

For some, Easter is a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For others, it’s more about eggs, bunnies, and, of course, lots and lots of chocolate!

Maybe for your setting, it’s a little bit of both. But regardless of your reason for celebrating, one thing remains the same… the never-ending list of Easter crafts for kids (and adults).

This time of the year is a great reason to get out all of your arts and crafts supplies for children to practise their fine motor skills. From handling safety scissors to cut straight lines, to colouring in a section on a piece of paper – the below activities are all great ways for the children to master control of their motor skills.

So, here’s some of our top craft activities for Easter!
