Happy Spring! I love this time of year! The weather, the blooms, the baby animals. It’s such a happy season! Spring always means that Easter is around the corner. Easter art for kids is always so colorful and adorable. Here are some top picks of Easter art for kids. 


Easy Easter Art for kids

Not every mom is a crafty mom! These are the recommended Easter Art activities for kids with the not -so- artistically gifted mother. These ideas are perfect for the busy mom who doesn’t have a lot of bandwidth to craft with their child.  An added bonus–  these Easter art ideas use materials that you likely already have in your home! 


Easter Egg Pom Pom paint 

Grab some construction paper and cut in an egg shape. Get out some paints and some little pom poms and let your little little Picasso get to work! If your little one doesn’t like messy fingers, you can use clothespins to hold onto the pom poms. This activity is great for building fine motor skills for younger children!

Easter Bunny Craft 

For this craft you need a paper plate, some cotton balls, glue, and some white and pink paper for the bunny ears! First, have your child cover the paper plate in cotton balls.Then, cut out two ear shapes and tape to the back of the plate. Finally, brainstorm together some materials from around the house that you could use for whiskers and eyes. (Think:pipe cleaners, cotton swabs, yarn, goggly eyes, buttons, etc.). It’s always fun to see what our kids think up! This Easter art could also turn into a mask for kids!

Handprint Bunny

This handprint bunny is a super easy Easter craft for kids! And it’s also a great keepsake! Simply trace your child’s hand on construction paper, then cut out. Fold down two fingers to create the bunny arms, cut off the middle finger and voila – you have your bunny! Older kids will enjoy creating their own bunny faces, while younger children may need a little help.

Footprint Carrot

This footprint carrot is also a great keepsake! Kids love to look back at their art projects, especially ones where they can see just how much they have grown. For the footprint carrot you need paper orange, green, and white paper and orange paint. Have your child step in paint, or “paint” the bottom of their foot, then have them carefully step on the white piece of paper. Cut out the footprint and glue to orange construction paper in a carrot shape. Add some greenery on top. An adorable and easy Easter craft for kids!

Easter Art Projects

The following are Easter art ideas for kids that may be a little more time consuming, or require a two step process. 

Easter Egg Rocks  

This is a great art project that can keep giving and giving. First, go on a nature walk with your kids, looking specifically for egg shaped rocks. Then, it is time for some water play! Give your rocks a bath to make sure they are clean. While they are drying, pick out pastel colored paints. Choose a color to paint each rock entirely. Once the base color has dried, add designs in other colors! Use q-tips and small paint brushes to create fun and unique designs for each rock. Once the rocks are dry, they can be used as decoration, or can be hidden for an Easter Rock hunt!

Salt painted Easter Eggs      

For this art project you need card stock, Elmer’s glue, salt, and watercolors. Draw an egg shape on card stock, including different designs on each egg. Trace over everything with glue, then add a liberal amount of salt, fully covering all of the glue. Allow to dry and gently dump off excess salt. Then dab on watercolor paint to color your eggs! The outcome is a beautiful, puffy looking art piece- a perfect addition to Easter decor for the season!
