Easter is right around the corner, and that means bunnies, colorful eggs, and cute chicks (PEEPS, anyone?). Pastel colors and Spring flowers are abundant, and a visit from the Easter bunny is all your kids can think about. While they wait patiently for their Easter baskets to be filled with goodies and the fun egg hunts, entertain them with some fun Easter crafts that will be sure to brighten your home!
Easter Bunny Bowling
We’re starting this list off with a 2-in-1 craft: your kids get to have fun with their craft even after finishing it! This adorable DIY bowling game is easy to make and will surely provide hours of fun for your little ones. Simply take a cardboard box, paint (or cover with craft paper) it, add some adorable bunny ears and whiskers, cut a hole in the front that will allow balls or easter eggs to roll through easily, and voila, you have a bunny bowling lane! Your kids can play outdoors or indoors to see who is the best Bunny Bowler. Find more detailed instructions here!
Egg Carton Flowers
This craft is perfect for that empty egg carton leftover from dyeing eggs. You can precut the carton for your kids and let them paint to their hearts’ desire! Once the paint has dried, you can attach the stem to the back with glue. Make sure to use something sturdy (like a dowel rod or thick paper straw) to hold up the weight of the egg carton. You can display them in a fun flower pot, vase, or wherever else you can think of. We found this craft here.

All you need is rice, some socks, a marker, ribbon, and some rubber bands to make these cute creatures. Find the directions here!
