Easter activities for the little ones
The Easter weekend is almost upon us, and if your house is anything like mine, youÂ’ll be scrounging for some ideas to keep your children entertained along the Easter theme. Here are some ideas IÂ’ve found which I hope youÂ’ll find helpful.
If you have any suggestions or comments, please contact me at IÂ’d love to hear from you.

Eggshell Mosaic

A great way to use up the eggshells left over after youÂ’ve eaten your eggs. Children will love breaking up the eggshells.
Coloured eggshells, construction paper, paintbrush, crayon, pen or marker, glue. On a piece of paper have child draw a simple design (e.g. flower, balloon, kite, egg). The children will love painting the glue onto the design area. Try and fit the egg shell pieces into one another like a jigsaw onto the glue. Allow to dry then hang and enjoy.

Dyed Easter Eggs

Food colour
small bowls, cups or empty margarine containers
White vinegar
Food colouring


Fill containers about 1/2 to 2/3 full of water. If you fill the containers too full they will overflow. Using cups is the most frugal method.
Add 1 tsp of vinegar for approximately one cup of water.
Add food colour until you're happy with the shade you want. Quite a lot is required to get the right strength.
Put hard boiled eggs in the cups (Use a Tbsp to put them in and out)
Let dry. Wipe with vegetable oil (with paper towel or a rag) to make your egg glossier.
NOTE: Always cover your work surface with newspaper so the dye doesn't get on your kitchen table. Wipe off any spills or splashes with a rag immediately. .

Marbleized Easter Eggs

1 Tbsp vegetable oil (for each colour)


Add 1 Tbsp vegetable oil to each colour you want to marbleize
Dye eggs
When you remove the eggs, the oil will have caused a cool marbleized effect

Rubber Band Easter Eggs

wide rubber bands
Easter Egg dye: store bought dye or home made


Simply dye your eggs a light colour (ex: yellow).
Then wrap rubber bands around the egg.
Now dip in a darker colour.
Let dry.
Remove rubber bands to see your tie dyed Easter egg!

Easter Hands Wreath

Materials: glue, scissors, and three colours of pastel paint or construction paper.

Trace the child's hand onto paper and cut out the prints. Or you could make paint handprints on the paper and cut those out.
Make nine handprints (3 of each colour).
Cut out the prints and glue to form a wreath.
You can decorate the wreath further with pictures.
These could be stickers, hand drawn artwork by the children,
pictures from colouring books, magazines or fliers

Toilet Paper Roll Rabbits/Chicks

Toilet paper rolls/ kitchen paper roll cut down to size, scissors, construction paper, felt tip pens, glue, glue-on eyes, cotton wool, or whatever you think appropriate.

Cut hair, ears, paws beak, etc. out of felt, foam, or construction paper.
Glue these onto the body.
Next colour a face onto your chick or bunny.
Name them a name and put on a puppet show.

Easter egg basket

Materials needed; scissors, ribbon, construction cardboard, stapler, punch, felt tip pens, pens.

Cut out a square as in the diagram below. The outer square is the width of an A4 sheet of paper. The inner square is 5cm shorter per side. Fold along the dotted lines and cut along the bold lines from the outer square to the inner square.
Punch holes in each corner thread ribbon through each hole, joining them to the diagonally opposite hole. Fold the cardboard upwards along the dotted lines to form a box and staple the ends together.
Now decorate your Easter egg box with some shredded tissue paper or confetti or whatever takes your fancy.
