Help your preschoolers to create this cute paper plate Easter bunny.
The Materials needed for the Easter bunny paper plate craft are: 2 paper plates, 2 cotton balls, small pink pompom, 2 googly eyes, a black marker, pink crayon, scissors, glue, and a small piece of scrap cardstock or construction paper for the bow.
To make this, cut one of the paper plates in half. Use your pink crayon to colour the inner half circle on each piece of the cut paper plate. Once done, glue the two halves to the back of another paper plate to form the ears.
To create the Easter bunny’s face, glue 2 cotton balls side by side in the centre of the bottom paper plate, then glue a smaller pink pompom at the top of where the cotton balls meet. Stick on googly eyes, and colour in the mouth using a pink crayon or pencil. Cut out a bow tie shape from any colour cardstock or construction paper and stick it in the middle at the bottom of the paper plate. And there you have your paper plate Easter Bunny!
String Easter Egg

Create this inexpensive yarn Easter egg basket and fill it with Easter goodies!
To make this string Easter egg, you will need:
1 roll of crochet thread (any colour), 1 small bowl, 1 bottle of liquid starch, large balloons, 1 large container for drying the egg, and scissors.
To get started, put the whole roll of yarn into your small bowl of liquid starch, then let it sit for a few minutes. Doing this makes it easier for the yarn to stick to the balloon.
Blow up your balloon to the size you want your basket, then take the yarn out of the starch and start wrapping it around the balloon. Make it tight but not too tight or your balloon may pop. Wrap the yarn in different directions to make sure that you cover the entire balloon.
Once your balloon is completely covered, layer it with liquid starch. Use your hands to gently rub the liquid starch on the entire surface.
Leave it to dry for 24 hours. Once it’s completely dry and stiff, pop the balloon inside and cut out an opening at the front. This is where you’ll place your Easter goodies. Decorate your string Easter egg further with ribbons, bows, beads or any other accessory that you wish.
Easter egg tree

Get your kids to help you make this cute and colourful Easter egg tree that you can use every Easter.
The materials needed for the Easter egg tree are:
1 foam cone, 4 packs of colourful/glittery foam egg ornaments, 1 pack of green Easter paper grass, and a hot glue gun.
Begin by placing all the eggs on the table. Depending on the type of colourful or glittery foam egg ornaments that you purchase, there may be ribbons attached to them. Cut all the ribbons off.
Starting from the bottom of the foam cone, start placing the eggs by putting a dab of glue on the egg then hold it in place for a few seconds. Work your way up. Once you’re done placing all the eggs on the foam cone, leave it to dry. Use your Easter paper grass to fill the gaps in between the eggs.
Easter egg suncatcher with tissue paper

Place these pretty Easter egg suncatchers in your window and watch the vibrant colours of the sun shine through them.
What you’ll need to create Easter egg suncatchers:
Contact paper, bright tissue paper (assorted colours), ribbon, sticky tape, and scissors.
To start creating your Easter egg suncatchers, tear your coloured tissue paper into strips. You can make the strips as thin or thick as you like.
Cut out two rectangles of contact paper of the same size. They can also be any size you like. Place the tissue paper strips across the contact paper. You can cover the whole rectangular area, leave gaps or overlap the colours. Let your kids decide how to decorate them as there is no right or wrong way to do it.
Once the coloured strips are in place, put the second piece of contact paper on top of the strips to secure it. Next, use a pencil to draw on an egg shape and then cut it out.
The final step is to cut a bit of ribbon and tape it in a loop at the top of your Easter egg suncatcher. Now they’re ready for hanging up on display.
Eggshell tealight candle centrepiece

Save your eggshells the next time you eat eggs and create this beautiful tealight candle centrepiece.
To get started, you will need the following:
Eggshells (make sure the opening is wide enough for a tealight candle), food colouring, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, warm water, tealight candles, and an egg carton/container or dish.
Start by thoroughly cleaning your eggshells. Once done, sink them in a cup of warm water that has a few tablespoons of vinegar and a few drops of food colouring. Leave them there for 5-10 minutes, remove them and let them dry completely.
Next, put the tealights inside the eggshells then place them in the egg holder. Why not have the kids customize an egg carton with paint and decorations instead of using a dish. Then simply light up the candles and enjoy!
Painting Easter eggs
Painting Easter eggs is a fun, traditional activity that you can do with the kids.
What you’ll need:
Eggs, acrylic paint, paintbrush, and a dry sponge (optional).
To start, hard boil the eggs for 15 minutes, and allow the eggs to cool completely. Next, use a fine-pointed paintbrush and acrylic paint to create fun designs.
You can also create a sponged effect by using a dry sponge and white paint. Paint an egg one solid colour then wait until the first layer of paint has dried. You can then use the dry sponge to apply the white paint, dabbing the sponge all over the egg. Once done, let it dry and move on to the next one.
