This Tape Resist Cross Craft is a fun Easter craft idea for kids.
- Begin by making a cross (out of two strips of masking tape) on the watercolor paper.
- Next, paint around the tape using any color combinations (for sunrise use yellows and oranges). Let the paint dry.
- Once the paint dried, carefully peel away the tape to reveal your beautiful cross!
This Egg Number Match Activity is a super easy-to-prep activity that encourages toddlers and preschoolers to learn to count, helps them visually see the order of numbers and simply have fun all at the same time!
- Cut each egg in half and mark the top half with “dots” 1-10.
- Next, tally mark the bottom halves 1-10 to match the tops. Mixing up the colors of the eggs makes it a bit more challenging!
Kids need to match up the correct quantity of dots to the tally marks to complete an egg. Once all of them at matched up, let the kiddos place the eggs in numerical order!

This Spring Play-dough Tray is perfect for Easter. It’s super easy to prepare and your little one’s will love it!
It’s quite simple too! All you’ll need is some play-dough and a bunch of miscellaneous stickers, beads, sequins, flowers, etc. Anything you have on hand will work. In fact, I’ve used leftovers of sequins and other odd items I’ve had from previous crafts and it worked well so this tray is very versatile, anything goes!
- Play-dough (we love Eco-Kids Dough)
- Add-ins (like sequins, pom-poms, beads, stickers, buttons, plastic eggs, feathers, even pasta is great! )
- Tray with sections (mine is a dip tray from Walmart, 3$!)
I love using a sectioned tray for activities like these because you can place everything in it’s own section and display everything available for the kiddos to use. Place play-dough in the center and everything else around.
This Easter Egg Yarn Threading activity is super quick to prep and totally inexpensive, anyone can do this!
Using the hole punch, make holes all the way along the edge of the eggs. Cut a long string of yarn and tie one end to the egg using one hole.
Do your kids love making cards? This Coffee Filter Sunrise Card is PERFECT for upcoming Easter!
- Coffee filter
- Cardstock (white, brown)
- Glue stick
- Craft scissors (or kid-safe scissors if kids will be doing the cutting)
- Watercolors + paintbrush
Fold the coffee filter in half and paint with watercolors, saturating and mixing yellows, reds and oranges together (don’t over saturate!). Let dry completely (usually dries pretty quick as coffee filters are thin).
Next, fold the white cardstock in half like a card and glue the coffee filter sunrise right onto the front once it’s dry (make sure you apply the glue to the cardstock not the coffee filter as it’s thin and can rip.
Now, using the brown cardstock, cut a strip (.5″ x 2″) and another strip (.5″ x 1.5″) or approximately, to make a cross. Glue right onto the center of the sunrise (again apply the glue to the cardstock pieces, not the coffee filter).
Kids can now decorate or address the card inside! These make perfect handmade cards for grandparents, uncles, aunts, friends, Sunday school teachers, etc.!
Easter is coming up so soon and I’ve got this Easter Egg Dot Painting craft to set the mood! Kids will love this and you will too because it’s super quick to set up and doesn’t require a whole list of art supplies.
With a black permanent marker draw a large egg on the white cardstock (I free-hand drew, it doesn’t have to be perfect!). Next, using matching colors to the dot paint, draw all sorts of designs and patterns inside the egg.
- Easter basket grass
- Plastic Easter eggs
- Numbers (we used our magnetic numbers, I’ve linked similar)
- Bin (we love this Ikea bin)
INSTRUCTIONS: Place the Easter basket grass into the bin and rip it apart a
little bit. Next, place a magnetic number (or any small number manipulative)
into the plastic Easter egg and hide in the grass filler. Do with all of the
numbers (we did from 1-10).
Fun and surprising idea for kids!
- White cardstock
- Brown (or any cardstock to make a simple template with)
- Permanent marker
- White crayon
- Craft scissors
First, begin by making the template for the egg. Fold the brown (or any color) cardstock in half length wise and cut a half egg shape with the craft scissors. Unfold and you’ll have a nice, symmetrical egg 🙂 Now place the template over the white cardstock and trace with permanent marker. Next, with the white crayon draw designs and patterns right over the egg. You’re done and your egg is ready to be painted by your little artists!
