5 Easy Easter Crafts For Kids In Under 5 Minutes

Easter is definitely one of my favorite holidays. After the long, cold winter where I live, springtime is very welcome. I can’t tell you how happy I am about the warmer weather and the flowers blossoming.

For me, Easter is as much a celebration of springtime as it is a religious holiday. Most of the crafts I feature on this site are based around that. I can’t get enough of cute bunnies and chicks. So I’ve taught you how to make an adorable and delicious Easter bunny cake, and how to make a bunny from an old sock.

In this video, I will teach you 5 ways to make bunnies and chicks out of the most ordinary of supplies. These crafts are super fast and easy, so they are a great activity to do with your kids. Just remember to supervise your children if they use the glue gun; small children should use a glue stick instead.
