10 Last-Minute Easter Crafts Ideas

Easter is just around the corner but if it seems to have crept up on you this year, then don't fret. You've still got time to decorate your home and keep kids entertained with some cheerful Easter crafts. From adorable bunny puppets to dyed marshmallows, these Easter crafts can be made with just a few everyday objects you have lying around the house. Honest! Even if all you have is some paper, glue and scissors then you can still have some fun with Easter crafts.

Easter crafts are a lovely way to decorate your home and also fun for the whole family to get involved with. Why not set up the children with your Easter guests on Sunday morning after the Easter egg hunt with some of these easy projects? That way you can get on with making the Easter feast while keeping everyone busy and happy. Then when they're finished, you can display their Easter crafts on the lunch table. And if you're really short on time, just remember that some colourful Easter sweets laid out in a pretty bowl or glass jar will always look festive and go down a treat!  


You don't even need the extra bits and bobs to make these bunnies, you could just glue on paper eyes and a nose instead! Learn how to make these adorable paper fan bunnies.
