With some time off work and school, Easter is a fantastic opportunity to do some crafts with your kids. Instead of just eating Easter eggs, Juliet will show you how to make Easter bunny themed dry clay egg holders and some very cute potted eggs, complete with a little surprise at the bottom. This Easter, your best laid plans will leave your kids happy, excited and proud of what they made.

Give the Easter bunny a warm welcome with these whimsical decorations for your home. Get the kids involved and show them how great it is to create something with their own hands – just make sure it’s colourful and fun. While the hands are moving, seize the opportunity to catch up on a good one-on-one chat too. 

Here are 11 Easter craft ideas that the kids will enjoy creating with you
