With Easter coming soon, I like to have some fun Easter activities available for my kids to do that aren't the typical egg coloring.
And while we do enjoy decorating eggs, I'm a fan of other options that don't require making a huge mess of your kitchen as your little ones are dunking eggs in liquid or glitter or whatever. These kid-friendly Easter crafts are adorable, fun, and easy to manage with the kiddos.
Fun and Easy Kid-Friendly Easter Crafts
How about a super fun sheep made from 2x6's and cotton balls!
I made this with my kids during COVID. It was such a fun craft that is easy for all ages.
All you need is a 2x6 cut down to 10 inches tall. If you have a 2x4 that will work too. Paint the 2x6 all black with acrylic paint.
Once it is dry used a hot glue gun and start attaching cotton balls all over the place. Make sure to leave a little opening for the face.
For the face and ears I just used left over felt. But you could easily use paper, fabric or anything else you have around that house. That is it! Super easy.

And these cute baby chick crafts made with yarn are fun for the little ones. They can't my fun patterns with the yarn or just wrap away.

The Crazy Outdoor Mama has a big variety of fun Easter games for kiddos, but I really like this one. The little ones will have tons of fun creating the Easter bunny, then using it to catch the balls. You can do it outside or inside!!

Before you throw out that tin can, save it for this cute activity. I love the additional flowers, but treats would be fun too. Or even a gift, just wrap it up in cellophane and you have one darling surprise for someone.
