Chick Puppets

    Made from yellow baby socks turned inside out, this chirping set of baby chicks is an adorable Easter craft that will delight little ones on Easter morning.

Rabbit Gift Box

    This sweet rabbit gift box is a fun and easy craft for kids to create. The box is just as exciting as the gift they put inside. To make it theirs, let them choose their favorite color paper for the bunny.

Chick Pinata

    Kids will have a blast creating (and breaking) this adorable pinata. Made from newspaper strips soaked in a flour-and-water mixture, this Easter craft is safe and simple for kids to make. Let them fill it with their favorite candies for extra Easter fun.

Pom-Pom Fringe T-Shirt

    No matter the weather on Easter day, this pom-pom T-shirt will be a hit all spring. Simply purchase lengths of pom-pom fringe (we used white, but many colors are available at fabric stores), have your child arrange the trim on a plain T-shirt, and use fabric glue to set the design. After drying, a zigzag stitch ensures the trim stays put permanently.

Creative Easter Tins

    Transform a metal container into an Easter basket or a spot to store your Easter candies. Look for brightly colored metal tins and add magnets (you also can create your own magnets by attaching magnetic strips to printed letters or designs). Top with pretty paper flowers and file-drawer labels.

Button Hairclips

    Button, button, who's got the button? Your little girl will be a style star this Easter when you make these hairclips with pretty buttons. Open the clips before attaching fabric or stacked buttons with hot glue; allow to dry overnight.

Tape-Covered Spring Vase

    Give a used glass bottle a second life as a pretty Easter vase. Cover the bottle with thick strips of colored tape (available at crafts stores), then layer thinner tape strips on top.

Fabric-Wrapped Spring Containers

    Welcome Easter with pretty pails dressed up to fit spring plants or to serve as your Easter baskets. To determine how much fabric you'll need, wrap fabric around the container, allowing extra fabric on all edges; trim. Also cut openings for the handle. Fold under all edges to get a smooth look. Spread decoupage medium across the pail, place trimmed fabric atop the decoupage medium, and smooth. Apply a second coat of decoupage medium atop the fabric while working your way around the container.

Fabric-Wrapped Eggs

    Turn faux eggs into centerpiece-worthy stars. Trim fabric into strips and glue to the egg shapes (as an alternative, attach the fabric to a double-sided adhesive sheet before applying).

Flower Power Candy Cups

    Use brightly colored store-bought cups and scrapbook papers to create these cheerful candy cups that kids will love. Insert leaf-shape name tags to transform this cute Easter craft into easy place markers.

Sticker Easter Eggs

    After the egg dipping and dying, the kids can go crazy with stickers. Small round colored stickers (available at office supply stores) make easy and mess-free embellishments. Display the finished Easter eggs in a basket for Easter decor.

Jelly Bean Door Decor

    This cute door hanger is a fun Easter craft kids can make with a little supervision. Paint a paper-mache letter (available at crafts stores) using acrylic paint. Match the paint to the color of the jelly beans. Let the paint dry. Hot-glue the jelly beans to the front of the letter. Let dry. Hot-glue a ribbon to the back for a hanging loop.

Hanging Egg Decoration

    A tumble of pastel eggs is an Easter craft for kids that makes a cheery welcome at the front door. Wrap plastic foam egg shapes (available at crafts supply stores) with strips of crepe paper, attaching ends with glue or a small straight pin. Embellish with ribbon secured using small straight pins, leaving a long end for tying. Gather eggs at varying heights and tie ribbons together. Hang from a removable adhesive hook or wreath hanger, and add a ribbon bow to complete the Easter decoration.

Easter Treasure Box

    Remember those shoebox dioramas you made in grade school? We've given them a crafty Easter twist with purchased white shadow boxes decorated for spring. Cover the inside backs of the boxes with bright paper, then tuck in mementos from Easters past. Or, choose a less temporary springtime theme using an artificial bird's nests, eggs, and feathers.

Nested Egg Placeholders

    Personalize and decorate plastic Easter eggs to use as quick and cute placeholders for your special guests.

Easy Easter Tote

    Treat the Easter hostess to a little pampering. Fill an empty egg carton with fizzy bath balls for a thoughtful Easter gift. Cover the carton top with pretty paper and tie with ribbon.

Easter Dioramas

    Inspired by delicate sugar eggs that house intricate candy scenes, these boxed Easter displays are easy to make with materials from crafts stores. Cover the insides of small cardboard boxes with colored paper. Line the bottoms of the boxes with moss. Create miniature scenes with tiny baskets and toy chicks or with springtime images cut from vintage-look Easter postcards.

    Give your display a three-dimensional effect by attaching cutout images to a small branch (center) or by scattering additional elements, such as a broken egg and individual paper blossoms, around the image (bottom).

Egg Planter

    For a unique twist on the traditional Easter egg, give eggshells second life as planters. Fill the planters with different types of plants, such as these colorful alyssum seedlings. Involve the kids in planting and caring for the little Easter garden.
