It’s almost Easter, and you’re wondering: How do I mark this big holiday in the classroom in a way that is inclusive and respectful of all students? You may opt to skip Easter entirely, but if you’re looking for some crafts and activities that can be a lot of fun this time of year without being too “Easter”-centric, we have got you covered with activities for kids and crafts that will work in public school classrooms!
Easter Crafts for Kids
The colors of Easter are always so bright and cheery! All you have to do is scroll through this blog and you’ll instantly feel excited to spend an afternoon doing some Easter craft (the kids will too). Here are some more of our favorite Easter craft activities suitable for young students.
3-in-1 Funky Easter Craft Fun
You can’t put together a list of Easter craft ideas without including these amazing Funky Craft templates. The cuteness factor is undeniable!
The best thing about this craft is you don’t really need much to get started – and when your students start, they will be fully immersed for ages trying to get all of those patterns just right. You’re welcome!
Potato Masher Easter Egg Stamping
Who would have thought a trusty kitchen utensil used for mashing up potatoes would be the perfect size and pattern to create some stupendous Easter egg stamping fun?
This is such a super cute and fun art activity for your little bunnies. Again, the materials required are very minimal for this Easter craft.
How you use this Easter egg stamp idea is up to you and your students. It may be set up as an art and craft station and your students can experiment with different colors.
We decided to create a lovely Easter card that the students may like to take home to give to someone special.
Easter Character Terracotta Pot Craft
This Easter craft is slightly more complicated but you can’t deny the cuteness factor of these Easter-inspired character pots.
You can pick up cheap terracotta pots and most of the other materials at your local craft store.
- Acrylic paint
- Terracotta pots
- Goggly eyes
- Colored paper (pink, white, and orange)
- Large pompoms (white and yellow)
Get painting. White for a rabbit, yellow for a chick, or just a cute bluebird for those that may not necessarily celebrate the Easter tradition.
Get decorating. We used cute googly eyes and some feathers, paper, and pipe cleaners to create these cute little characters. The best sticking utensil for this activty is a hot glue gun!
Your students could leave these pots on their desks for when the Easter bunny visits their classroom. Alternatively, they would also look super cute with little succulents in them!
Easter Egg and Chick Template
This super fun Easter craft template is the perfect mix of coloring, cutting, and assembling!
Materials needed for this craft are minimal too!
Download and print our Easter Egg and Chick Craft Template. We then used paper straws but you can also use two craft sticks glued together to give it the right length for the chick to pop up in between the cracked egg.
How to use this resource:
- Decorate the Easter egg and cut it out (including the zigzagged part in the middle to create a cracked egg).
- Color the chick and cut it out.
- Glue the top of the chick to the cracked end of the top piece of the egg.
- Glue a paper straw or two large wooden craft sticks to the back of the chick template.
- Cut out the strip of paper and glue each end of the strip of paper to the back of the bottom piece of the egg, just below the cracked edge.
- Slip your chick and stick between the strip and the back of the bottom of the egg.
- Slide the chick up and down as it peeks between the cracked pieces of the Easter egg.
Easter Agamograph Art Activity
Did you know that an agamograph is a series of images that change at different angles?
Your students will have lots of fun creating this cool Easter craft. Simply download our Easter Agamograph Art Activity and get your students coloring.
Talk to them about how the two different images are separated in the template. Focus on one image at a time to get the colors consistent.
Then, fold the picture like a fan and move from right to left to see the different images! What fun!
