10 Fun & Easy Easter Crafts for Kids

Mom Moment 43

Are your kids getting excited for the Easter Bunny yet? I know my little guy is. He wakes up pretty much every day and asks me what kind of treats I think he will find in his basket.

And while we still have a couple of weeks to go before Easter Sunday arrives, now is the perfect time to do some fun crafts with your kids to get them ready for the holiday and excited for spring.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the most creative person on the planet, but I did manage to find 10 fun and easy Easter crafts for kids (besides just dyeing the eggs with a store-bought kit) that even someone like me can pull off making with my son.

3. Shoelace Bunnies - Your children will love "hopping" to school with a cute pair of bunnies on their feet.

4. Thumb Bunny Card - These sweet Easter cards are about as simple as they get -- all you need is construction paper, paint, markers, and your child's thumbprint.

5. Easter Bunny Frame - Making an adorable bunny-eared frame to house a silly photo of your child is an Easter decoration that can adorn your mantel year after year.
