Easter crafts for kids

We are hopping with excitement here at Crafting Corner with Ella as we can’t wait to share our Easter crafts for kids with you today! Something affordable, easy and FUN to do with your little humans in this first week of school holidays. And something personal and handmade to give to the other kids in your life as opposed to sweets and chocolates!

It was craft day in our house again. Who am I kidding? It is always craft day in our house! But this was a little different, it was a themed one! Not just, “Here Aidan play with your art set while I work or watch Friends reruns”. We got down with some Easter crafts for kids when Aidy and I made Easter Treat Bags. Why? Because although I am big on celebrating Easter, I am not too big on tons of chocolate (for kids). I prefer to shake things up a little with a toy or activity, along with the chocolate treat – all packed into a pretty themed bag.

This year we (it is the first year that Aidan helped) made three different bags with one thing in common… BROWN PAPER LUNCH BAGS, because they are cheap and I really love the look of them!
