Easter Family Craft Activities

Something a little different today.  I have to work hard during the holidays.  As you may know my son is autistic, so a life without the routine of the school day is quite frankly hellish!  Over the last few years we have gathered together some of our favourite activities, both indoor and outdoor to keep us busy and on schedule.

So here are 24 of my favourites in the hope you may enjoy them too.  These tutorials from around the web include  yummy Easter food, bunnies, free printables, Easter treats and cupcakes.    Let me know if you have any extra suggestions in the comments.

  • Easter Photo Booth ~ These Easter photo booth props are a fun addition to your Easter pictures.  Give little ones something to keep their hands busy and create cute keepsake photos of your little Easter bunnies this year.  They are also great party favors for all ages if you are hosting this year.

  • Some Bunny Loves You ~ a wonderful idea which teaches generosity plus it can be fun (dropping treats at someone’s door, ringing the bell and running away without getting caught.) I love that they are so excited to do something kind for someone else without getting any recognition for it. It’s at totally selfless act.
  • Bunny Houses {Easter Activity} ~ Building yummy houses is not just for Christmas anymore! This post features the clever idea to have your kids decorate bunny houses! Instead of gingerbread, use sugar biscuits and then icing and sweets to decorate! Festive and fun!  Plus its perfect for my daughter as we can make the biscuits without milk, she’s lactose intolerant.
