5 Kid Friendly Crafts to Keep Busy

Are you going a little stir-crazy?

Well, Easter is only a little over two weeks away, so why not put this time to good use by making some holiday crafts, treats, and tasty dishes to keep the kids and yourself busy? 

(Below are some tried and true crafts/recipes I've done-and their links-so happy crafting)


The prettier the paper – the better
But white paper will work 
Simply color, paint, draw or even paste magazine pictures to beautify your baskets

The stiffer the paper – the stronger
If you have cardstock – all the better

Staple, tape or even glue – use what you have around the house 


These are simply cupcakes with coconut frosting but if you don’t have coconut, simply scoop your frosting into a baggie and cut the end off to pipe “grass” on top. 

If you have questions let me know in the  comments.


If you have food coloring and eggs, you can make your own minions. If you don’t have jiggly eyes, simply draw them with a marker or paint them with food coloring.


If you have rice krispies and marshmallows – you can make easter eggs! If you don’t have marshmallows, you can make your own.


If you have a can of beets and some eggs, you can color eggs the natural way. This is safe (except for the obvious staining issue). Put on an apron, tie a towel around yourself, or simply wear old clothes for this project. 

It couldn't be more simple. Just dunk your egg in the juice - then let it sit - it takes longer than food coloring but it comes out pretty.

I hope you enjoyed these five simple ways to have some fun with things you probably have around the house.

Stay well and happy creating!
