10 Quick & Easy Easter Recipes, Crafts & Activities


I loved Easter when I was growing up. It was such a beautiful time to be with family and to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, reflecting on his goodness, and how amazing His love for us truly is. For my family, there's a lot more to Easter than egg hunts and decorating with cute bunnies. We incorporate traditions- old ones and love making new ones, now that we're a family of four. I used to be so good about making crafts and treats and decorating with my oldest child, and have become so busy with life and work that my youngest is missing out on some of those special things. We're taking the rest of Holy Week to not only attend church services, but to enjoy Easter- with special outings, activities, crafts, and making treats at home, too. If you're like me, and Easter has sort of snuck up on you this year, you still have time to partake in some awesome family Easter activities.

Here are 10 Quick & Easy Easter Recipes, Crafts & Activities

Easy Easter Egg Maracas

Little ones love to move and groove and egg shakers are a popular choice in musical instrument for young children. I used to make these with the little ones I taught in church music groups, and they loved making their very own little egg shakers at Easter time! You just need a few plastic eggs, plastic spoons, Washi tape, and rice, noodles, or beans to get the party started!

Washcloth Bunny Craft

I love making simple crafts with my kids at Easter time. This is an adorable little bunny made from a washcloth! This is super inexpensive and can be made as a decoration, or given to kiddos as gifts on Easter Sunday! Grab the instructions for the Washcloth Bunny craft at Confessions of an Over-Worked Mom.

Cuteness abounds at Easter time, and we love sharing cute Easter touches that we made ourselves. Last year, we shared our idea for a simple DIY Easter Egg Banner, made with twine, tiny clothespins, and decorative paper. You can make this your own- as simple or as ornate as you like!
