50 Crafts, Recipes, & More That You Need for Easter

With Easter 2020 just around the corner (it’s April 12, aka just less than 4 weeks away), it’s time to start thinking about food, decor, and baskets. Oh, and do you have kids who are stuck at home with you during the COVID-19 pandemic? Worried about running out of things to do to keep them entertained? I have a bunch of crafts for you to do with them, too!

Before we get started, I want to make something clear: As you may or may not know, I’m not the craftiest person. I’ve certainly tried, and I did plenty of crafting in my sorority, but I’m not out here with a crafting blog. So all of these Easter activities and food are from other blogs. I have included links, the name of the blog, and a few sentences from the blog post in question (in quotation marks). Basically, I want to make sure that you guys know that I’m not the one who came up with these things, and I haven’t given away any key information from the posts because these other bloggers are the ones who did the heavy lifting. But I’m including this paragraph to be 110% sure that you know that I can’t take the credit for coming up with all of that stuff. I bow down to the skills of other bloggers. That being said, let’s get into the Easter goodies!

We're approaching Easter 2020! In this post, Boston lifestyle blogger Kate the (Almost) Great shares crafts, food, and more in this Easter roundup.

DIY Paint Chip Easter Garland (Modern Parents Messy Kids) – “This was super easy and turned out even better than I’d hoped. I love how the white line in the middle mimics the look of a plastic egg.

Glitter Easter Eggs (girl. inspired.) – “Have you ever blown out eggs before? I’m definitely not an expert, and it’s not the quickest activity without some sort of fancy tool, but it is kind of fun. I blew out a pile of eggs and then went for a metallic dipping effect and the eggs turned out SOOOO pretty.”

This craft will make you a beautiful painting of a little chick which kids will love to look at it and enjoy it in the spring time.”

Easter Decor

DIY Bunny Garland (The Crafting Chicks) – “This sweet and simple DIY Bunny & Doily Garland is the perfect touch for your mantle this year. I loved making this for my Easter Mantle and I love how it turned out. Doilies are so sweet and I love the mini blue and pink pops along the bunny garland chain. This DIY project just takes minutes and makes for such sweet Easter decor.”

Bunny Treats Bar Cart (Happy Family Blog) – “I love Easter! Bunny rabbits and candy what could be better? If you are a regular reader you know I love my bar cart! We have had this extra large bunny in our garage for two years. I cannot believe this is the first time I used it. As soon as I thought it into the house I knew I needed to have it pushing our bunny treats bar cart.”

Easy DIY Easter Wreath (Handmade Weekly) – “I decided to make an easy DIY Easter Wreath to spruce up my front door. It’s super simple just like every other wreath I’ve made. I just don’t have the patience for the tedious projects. This wreath took me about 10-15 minutes to make and cost me less than $20 in materials.”

Springy Moss & Egg Easter Table (Liz Marie) – “Easter was always a big deal in our house, a big meal, an Easter basket filled with goodies that usually contained new pajamas & lots of candy, & of course the celebration of our Lord & Savior rising up from the grave. It’s one big happy day so decorating for Easter for me is something that brings me lots of joy.”

Easter Food

Easter Bunny Bait (Savvy Saving Couple) – “Looking for an adorable Easter Candy Cupcake idea? These Easter Cupcakes are simply adorable and take minutes to design. Use homemade or plain bakery style cupcakes to recreate these Easter designs featuring R.M. Palmer chocolate novelties.”

Easy Easter Candy Cupcake Ideas (Savvy Saving Couple) – “A colorful cereal-based snack mix that is candy coated and tossed in powdered sugar. Candy additions like Spring Mix Sixlets, mini marshmallows, and white chocolate chips are added for a fun and tasty treat.”

Peeps S’Mores with Homemade Gluten-Free Graham Crackers (On Tap for Today) – “If the Easter Bunny left you with a heap of Peeps, I’ve got a plan for you. It involves making gluten free graham crackers (that’s the only hard part, and it’s really not that hard… I mean, I was able to do it), committing Peepicide in your microwave and consuming 14,000 calories in the span of mere seconds. You with me?”

Bunny Cupcakes (Momless Mom) – “Now, if you are in search of Easter cupcake ideas, I have an easy one that is perfect to make with your little ones. As you see in pictures, they are eye-catching and will add a festive pop to your Easter spread.”

Krispy Bunny Treats (DomestiKated Life) – “If you asked my friends what my signature dish was they would probably reply with “rice krispy treats.” It’s such a simple dessert to make, but after tweaking my own version of recipe for years, they’ve definitely become a go-to item to bring to parties.”

Easter Cupcakes in a Jar (The Decorated Cookie) – “Chocolate Easter cupcakes in a jar combine two of my loves: Cupcakes and mason jars. They are so easy to make with the right tools. Package them for Easter parties or dessert on Easter day. Try adding fabric to the lid and a ribbon, if you like. In place of the mini chocolate bunny, you can also add candy eggs.”

These carrot shaped crescent rolls can be filled with your favorite egg salad or ham salad and decorated with a sprig of dill or parsley to add a festive touch to your holiday meal.”

Bunny Cut-Up Cake (Homan at Home) – “Have you ever made a cut-up cake? This was something we used to do all the time when I was little. The idea is simple – you start with normally shaped cakes (usually squares or circles), and then cut them up, reassemble them, and create fun designs.”

Easter Bark (Five Heart Home) – “Easter Bark is a simple, festive, spring treat featuring two kinds of chocolate swirled together and topped with mini chocolate eggs, pretzels, and pastel sprinkles!”

Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls (A Girl and a Glue Gun) – “You can make these super cute Easter bunny cinnamon rolls …with a cheat!”

Easy Easter Peeps Cookie Cake (Growing Up Gavel) – “One of my favorite spring treats are Peeps. I love the fun shapes and colors. But I don’t like marshmallows. Yup, true story! So I never eat Peeps, but Peeps on cupcakes, cakes or anything else? Adorable!”

Easter Egg Cookie Boxes (Glorious Treats) – “These are not your everyday, “just whipped them up” kind of cookies… these are special occasion cookies that do take a bit of preparation. But I’m quite sure that presenting one of these pretty cookie boxes to your Easter guests will elicit rave reviews! I mean they’re cookies, filled with candy… how could anyone resist? =)”

Homemade Reese’s Eggs (cincyshopper) – “Every year when all the Easter Candy starts appearing one of the first candy items we see on the shelves are Reese’s Peanut butter Eggs. All I can say is oh my! Reese’s Eggs are my FAVORITE candy. They are also my kiddos favorite. Peanut Butter and Chocolate oh my my my! Easter would not be Easter without Reese’s East eggs.”

Easter Basket Cookie Cups (Lil’ Luna) – “Something else I love to involve the kids in is making festive Easter treats! This recipe for Easter basket cookie cups is perfect for that! We make this dessert every year, and the kids enjoy frosting them and placing the M&M’s on top. Not only are these cookie baskets cute and festive, but they’re yummy too!”

Chicken-Themed Toddler Easter Basket (Birch Landing Home) – “Last year we started keeping backyard chickens and they’ve become a really fun and important addition to our family. We love the fresh eggs we get everyday and our toddler thinks the chickens are super fun. Since she’s become so fond of our six Rhode Island Red hens, I thought we’d make her Easter basket chicken-themed this year!”

5 Easter Basket Ideas for Babies (The Frugal Navy Wife) – “Baby’s first Easter is a pretty exciting event. It’s their first time meeting the Easter Bunny, of course! Unfortunately, it can be pretty hard to choose items that don’t run a risk of hurting them. Smaller toys and candy aren’t a good option so it isn’t too hard to find yourself suddenly stuck on what to fill their Easter basket with.”

DIY Easter Bunny Basket (Mom Trends) – “We had so much fun making this DIY Easter Bunny Basket and Carrot Hunt Command Game. The kiddos really enjoyed hunting for carrots and acting like bunnies.”

Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas (Busy Little Izzy) – “I want to start off saying, I’m not an anti candy mom. I do however try to keep Izzy’s candy intake to a minimum & I often buy the organic & dye free stuff. #healthycandy If there is such a thing. That said, Izzy will likely have a chocolate bunny in her basket and potentially some “healthy” gummies. Candy is such a given, that I wanted to share some ideas with you all that aren’t candy.”

The Best Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers (Gift Willow) – “There’s a ton of inexpensive Easter basket filler ideas, so you can definitely do this on a budget, but it’s also a great opportunity to splurge on the things you’re already going to need to get for them – shoes, socks, and even pajamas. It can actually become a really fun tradition to get some fun Easter socks every year!”

Rain Boot Easter Basket Ideas (i heart arts & crafts) – “I love adding creative spins to my kids Easter baskets every year instead of giving them the traditional Easter wicker basket.”

Easter Basket Ideas for Teen Boys (Busy Mommy Media) – “Teens are past the stage where they are satisfied with a stuffed bunny and some chocolate. Putting together a great Easter basket gets a bit trickier when you can’t just shop the holiday aisle at your local store. Fortunately, there are some really great options for teen boys that are perfect for filling a Easter basket.”

Toddler-Approved Dollar Store Easter Basket Ideas (The Crazy Craft Lady) – “The twins (age 2.5) are still too young to understand holidays – but they sure know what bunnies, flowers, and carrots are! Despite their lack of understanding, I still think they “need” to have Easter baskets. Since your average toddler has the same attention span with a new toy whether you spent $1 or $100 on said toy, I headed to my local Dollar Tree the other day for Easter basket makings.”

Easy & Quick DIY Easter Basket (The Mama Notes) – “It cost me $10 per basket and took only 10 minutes. The best part about this is that I think these would look so cute in a play room or kids room with books or animals after Easter!”
