With Easter just upon us, big and little kids alike, who isn’t looking forward to four days of guilt-free chocolate indulgence! with s0 much sugar comes the mammoth task of keeping the kids occupied and letting them use their sugar high in a rather constructive way.

So, from decorating Easter eggs to making Easter Hats to getting competitive in Easter Egg hunts to even making baskets; there is a whole heap of family fun that Easter brings!

At Cubsta, we put together some simple Easter activities that you could undertake with your little ones at home or at daycare. And the best part is these activities have been undertaken using items already sitting at home (Except the easter eggs, which cost us $2 at the dollar store).

Colourful Easter Eggs

Colourful Easter Eggs

Things you will need:

  • White plastic or foam Easter eggs (We got ours from a dollar store)
  • Paints
  • Paintbrush
  • Newspaper (To avoid any paint spills)
  • Egg Crate
  • A bowl for mixing colours and some water

Step 1

Layout a table with all the above material and make sure you put a piece of old newspaper on it just in case your little one gets too creative :).

Step 2

Now ask your little one to choose some of his or her favourite colour and start painting the eggs one by one. At this point, you can mix two different colours to explain to your little one the concept of basic colour theory.

Step 3

As the eggs get painted place them in an old egg crate and let them dry for at least 30 mins.

Step 4

Now you can use different colours or other small decorative items to do up your egg crate. In our case, we have used paints and a piece of carrot (plastic-one) to decorate the egg crate.

Easter Egg Bunnies

Easter Egg Bunny Craft

Things you will need:

  • White plastic or foam Easter eggs (We got ours from a dollar store)
  • Marker pen
  • Pink colour pen
  • Scissors and child-safe scissors as well
  • White A 4 sheet
  • Bunny ear and feet stencil (You could also draw the ears prior using a pen and then cut them out)
  • Glue
  • Toilet roll (Empty one)

Step 1

Take an A4 sized sheet and draw out bunny ears and feet using freehand or you could easily download a template online and take a printout.

Step 2

Now using a pink colour pen or pencil shade a part of the ear and feet to make them look more realistic. You can also make the toes in pink like we have (see image above).

Step 3

Now you can draw the eyes, mouth and nose of the bunny using a marker pen. This is where you let your child’s creative imagination come into play and let them decorate their Easter bunny as they like. You could use colours or glitter or anything else you have at your disposal.

Step 4

For the body of your Easter bunny, take an empty toilet roll and cover it with a white A4 paper using craft glue. Now place the egg on top of the toilet roll and stick it using some sticky tape and glue so that it holds in place.

Step 5

Finally, stick the ears to the egg and the feet at the end of the toilet roll. And your easter bunny is complete.

Easter Parade Hat

Things you will need:

  • A Party hat
  • Some old gift wrapping paper or an A4 sheet
  • Bunny ears template
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors including a childsafe scissor

Step 1

Simply take an A4 sheet or a coloured gift wrapping paper (we used red) and cut it out in the shape of bunny ears. If you take an A4 sheet, you can pretty much let your child use his or her imagination to paint the ears.

Step 2

Now simply using some craft glue, stick the ears on to the party hat. Again you can decorate the hat in as many ways as you like.

Easter Mug or Cup

Things you will need:

  • An old mug lying around the house or a disposable cup
  • Craft glue or sticky tape
  • Gift wrapping paper
  • Scissors including a child-safe one

Step 1

Take a coloured gift wrapping paper (we used red) and cut it out in the shape of bunny ears.

Step 2

Simply stick the bunny ears on an old mug or a disposable cup. And that’s all, your Easter mug is ready! You can use this Easter cup to drink some hot chocolate or maybe as a planter.

Wishing you and your family a very happy Easter!
