Looking for the best Easter cooking and craft activities? We round-up our favourite ten Easter bakes and makes
Hurrah, the long Easter weekend is nearly upon us! It's a perfect opportunity to get cooking or crafty with your little ones. If you’re looking for some cooking and craft inspiration, here are ten of our favourite Easter-themed things to make and bake with small children.
(P.S. Make sure you read our tips on stress-free baking with toddlers first!)
Easter nest cake: The classic Easter nest cake is a no-bake, tasty treat that is easy for everyone to make. Get the instructions here (leave the small eggs out if you're worried about them being a potential choking hazard).
Easter tree decorations: If you want to decorate your Easter tree, these simple Easter salt dough decorations are perfect (if not slightly messy!)
Hot cross scones: A perfect teatime treat, get everyone making these, a cross between the classic hot cross bun and a scone. Yum.
Paper daffodils: Surely one of the best Easter-themed crafts for children to make (does everyone remember making these when they were young?) Here's the low-down on doing it yourself
Bunny rabbit handprint cards: If want a craft that’s also a keepsake, these handprint cards are perfect – and easy to do with babies, too.
Spring sun catchers: Let’s face it, Easter will probably be a wash-out. So brighten up a grey day with these tissue paper sun catchers, thanks to This Enchanted Pixie.
Egg shell Cress-heads: If you’re looking for something with slightly less sugar, then try these cress heads (use leftover egg shells!).
Marbled paper eggs: Want some messy fun? Try using food colouring and shaving foam to make marbled paper eggs.
Colourful Easter egg glasses: As an alternative to the traditional bonnet, why not make these colourful glasses? Full tutorial over on Let’s Do Something Crafty.
