Easter Crafts

Barbara J. Feldman

Spring has sprung, Easter is around the corner, and bunnies, baskets and eggs are cropping up everywhere! To celebrate the season, I’ve picked these five craft sites as inspiration for crafters of all ages.

  • All Free Crafts: Easter5 stars

    All Free Crafts offers more than fifty Easter crafts projects organized into six sections: Easter Bunny Crafts, Decorating Easter Eggs, Easter Baskets, Easy Easter Crafts, Offsite Craft Links, and Easter Recipes. Each project is illustrated (yay!), has a supplies list, allows for user comments, and includes a printable version without ads. Crafts for other holidays can be found by hovering on the Holiday Crafts tab in the horizontal navigation bar.

  • Craftbits: Easter Crafts3 stars

    "Easter is not all about chocolate and we celebrate it by giving you free Easter craft projects and activities." Visit for ideas and instructions for homemade Easter baskets, Easter decorations and Easter eggs. Some of the ideas are contributed by community members, but all are illustrated, include links to related crafts, estimated time to finish the crafts, and age group recommendations. Crafts for Christmas and Valentine's Day are listed in the left-hand menu.

  • Spoonful: Kids' Easter Crafts5 stars

    "Everything you need for a most egg-cellent day: easter decorations, bunny baskets, egg-decorating ideas, and more." With user ratings, time estimates, and crystal clear material lists and instructions, Family Fun has Easter Crafts all wrapped up! In addition to Easter Baskets and Egg Decorating, they also offer Easter Printables, Recipes, and Easter Games. Members (membership is free) can save crafts in a virtual craft box, making them easy to retrieve later.

  • Martha Stewart: Easter Crafts4 stars

    Although some of these projects are too complicated for little hands, there are still plenty of family crafts here at MarthaStewart.com. You can start with the kids section (Easter Kids' Crafts and Activities), where you'll find thirty-six beautifully illustrated craft projects, but don't stop there. Be sure to also explore Egg Dyeing 101, Easter Clipart and Templates, Decorating Easter Eggs, and Yarn Flowers (just to name a few!)

  • Honorable Mentions

    The following links are either new discoveries or sites that didn't make it into my newspaper column because of space constraints. Enjoy!
