Parents of small children might need some easy and inexpensive holiday themed crafts to keep the kids entertained with.

Plan ahead, and you won’t be left searching for ideas the night before.

Easy Easter Crafts for Kids

Easter Coloring Pages
You can’t go wrong with coloring pages! Kids of all ages can find it fun to sit down and work on a coloring page for a while. Attention spans will vary, so you may want to go ahead and print out a bunch of these!

Oriental Trading has 18 Easter coloring pages to choose from. Some of the images are secular (eggs, chickens, bunnies). Others have religious imagery for your children to color.

Crayola.com has 16 Easter coloring pages. Some are just to color and others are intended to be colored and then turned into a craft. One or two are puzzles. There is a Palm Sunday coloring page. I’ve never seen that before!

Educational Coloring Pages has 8 Easter themed coloring pages that include characters from Disney’s Winnie the Pooh. It also has 2 coloring pages of great big eggs with detailed designs that bigger kids might enjoy.

Cotton Ball Lamb
You can’t let Easter go by without having your kids make a cotton ball lamb! This concept has become an Easter tradition. There are several different ways to make one so feel free to experiment. Kaboose has a super simple one that requires a paper plate, lots of cotton balls, some glue, and some black construction paper (for the lamb’s head and feet). You probably have most of that stuff at home right now!

Bunny Tangrams
Spoonful has printable bunny tangrams for older kids to play with! They can cut out the tangram shapes themselves, and spend time trying to fit the shapes into the bunny shaped patterns. It is also possible to “think outside the box” and use the tangram shapes to create other types of Easter related designs. This one is a craft that turns into a series of puzzles.

Tissue Paper Egg
The best part about this craft is that it takes a really long time to complete! It is perfect for bored elementary school kids who are on Spring Break and complaining that there is nothing to do. The Apples for the Teacher website has directions.

Instead of buying thick art paper, I would suggest using the inside of an empty cereal box. Trace a big egg shape onto it. Buy some packages of tissue paper from a Dollar Store. Kids can rip the tissue into small pieces, and bunch it up before gluing it onto their egg. Hours of fun!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
