Fun to Make
Kids Easter Crafts

Try these kids Easter crafts and have fun making these cute Easter bunny cards.


They're really simple and inexpensive to make and you can make a variety of Easter greetings with just a few crafty bits and pieces.

There's plenty of variations on the theme as you'll see from the illustrated projects below.

 

You will need:

  • Thin card in assorted Spring colours (eg Yellow, white, pink, light green etc)
  • Assorted Easter foam or paper shapes or stickers
  • PVA glue, glue stick or double-sided adhesive tape
  • Pencil, ruler, scissors and felt-tip pens or coloured pencils
  • White paper for card inserts (optional)
  • Envelopes

Just follow these simple instructions to make the examples below and then you'll soon be creating your own designs.


Easter Bunny Cardmaking Project 1


  1. Take an A5 piece of pink card and score and fold in half to form a basic A6 card blank. The design on this card is in landscape format, ie the finished card is approximately 15cm wide and 10.5cm tall.

  2. Cut a strip of white card approximately 5cm x 15cm. A piece of textured card works well if you have some.

  3. Stick the white strip horizontally onto the front of your pink card about 2cm down from the top. Trim off any excess width as necessary.

  4. Add foam or paper shapes to decorate - I have used a foam bunny sticker and mini foam flowers.

  5. Add an Easter greeting in the centre of the lower part of the card, below the white strip. I have used a foam sticker but you could write your own greeting or use any other stickers you may have, or perhaps print some greetings from your PC and cut them out.

  6. Cut a white paper insert approximately 13.5cm x 20cm, fold in half and attach to the inside of your card with glue or tape.

  7. Add your own special message inside and any other decorations as required.

NB: A5 = 210mm x 148mm

For our next kids Easter crafts project:

  1. Take an A5 piece of card and score and fold in half to form a basic A6 card blank. The design on this card is in portrait format, ie the finished card is approximately 15cm tall and 10.5cm wide.

  2. Cut 2 pieces of contrasting card - one 6cm square and the other 5cm square.

  3. Centre the 5cm square on top of the 6cm square and stick into place.

  4. Now stick the 2 squares together onto the front of your blank card - either upright or at a 45° angle (as seen in the picture) - the choice is yours!

  5. Decorate the middle with a Easter foam or paper shape or sticker.

  6. Add extra decorations to the corners of the square mounting pieces if you wish - small flowers perhaps.

  7. Add an Easter greeting to the lower half of the card.

  8. Cut a white paper insert approximately 13.5cm x 20cm, fold in half and attach to the inside of your card with glue or tape.

  3. Cut another piece of contrasting card approximately 5cm x 3.5cm and stick on top of the first rectangle approximately 0.5cm down from the top.

  4. Decorate the centre of the smaller rectangle with a foam or paper shape as shown.

  5. Add an Easter greeting below the smaller rectangle - this can be handwritten, printed from your PC and cut out, or you could use a sticker if you have one.

  6. Add mini flowers stickers to the corners of the larger rectangle for a little more decoration if you wish.

  7. Cut a white paper insert approximately 13cm x 20cm, fold in half lengthways and attach to the inside of your card with glue or tape.

Helen's Top Tips:

Don't forget when giving a handmade greetings card, you can also decorate the envelope to make it extra-special.

You can create many variations of these kids Easter crafts not only for Easter but for any occasion by using different colour combinations, card sizes, motifs and greetings.

I hope you enjoyed these kids Easter crafts and will now be inspired to make lots more cards for all your family and friends.
