How to Make Paper Bag Easter Eggs by You Are My Fave
Can you believe Easter is right around the corner? I mean, we’ve been seeing pins for Easter stuff for months already but it is now time to actually get prepared for the upcoming holiday. I decided that this year I would make paper grocery bag Easter eggs. They are super easy and can be made various ways depending on your craft skills (mine are low to moderate in case you were wondering) and materials on hand.
How to make a Smart Phone Easter Egg Hunt by Bits of Everything
There are two ways to do this challenging Easter egg hunt. 1 – Treasure hunt style. One egg leads you to the next egg. OR 2 – Check off list style. Give them a print out of the list of clues that they can find in any order. Either way should work fine.
How to Make Cascarones Easter Egg Surprise Countdown by The Paper Mama
Cascarones, or “shell hits”, are said to bring luck and fortune to the person whose head you break the egg over. Typically Cascarones are filled with confetti, but I decided to add a couple of treats and turn these eggs into a countdown to Easter: the Easter Egg Surprise Countdown. While we won’t be breaking these eggs over our head, I did want to make these creations exciting for my 4-year-old. Here’s how I made them…
How to Make Helium Balloon Eggs by Celebrations at Home
Everyone loves an Easter egg hunt. We have them in our neighbourhoods, our back yards, at churches and preschools, even city parks. It’s a fun tradition that children love….except for the toddlers.
Lets face facts. We want to include the little ones but they really don’t know what to do, or why they’re doing it. Mum and dad try to coach them and nudge them in the right direction but it’s mostly futile. Well, now I’ve got the BEST solution for you instead!
The secret is helium-filled balloons!

How to Make Colour Coded Easter Eggs by Sew Many Ways
Each year we have a big Easter egg hunt at our house. All the kids from both sides of the family. My dad treats all the kids by giving me money to put in all the eggs. We also put lots of candy in there too!!
To make the egg hunt fair for everyone, I have always color coded each child. Each person picks what colour they want and that's the colour they have to hunt for. To help them remember what colour they have, I've given them baskets or bags that match their colour.
This year I made them buckets...recycling style.

How to Make Watercolour Easter Egg Hunt Invitation by Grey Luster Girl
My sister asked me to help out with an Easter egg hunt she was doing and said that she needed invitations. I looked around for inspiration and found these cool Easter hunt invites from Minted. Immediately I thought of my good friend, the watercolor palette and wanted to make my own watercolor Easter egg hunt invitations. I designed my invitations with black type and the egg portion of the invite was printed with very light grey ink. It was so light in fact that I had to turn the invite at an angle and bump up the contrast so that you could see it. I used my daughters watercolors to follow the outline.

Isn’t Springtime the best? Our studio is filled to bursting with various prototypes for paper tulips, partly decorated Easter eggs, and a whole host of baby farm animals in various forms from candy huggers in yesterday’s post, to these adorable Easter goodie bags. The little bunny rabbit, duckling, chick and lamb are all easily printed and cut by downloading the PDF file at the end of this post and assembling with scissors and glue. Once cut, the bags are simple to construct then you just need to glue the faces and wings on to the sides using your hot glue gun.

These felt pin wheels would look great out in the garden on a lovely spring day, or even on the morning of your egg hunt or Easter picnic. The pinwheel can be made in all different sizes, you just need to remember to keep the dimensions of each side of your template the same to make a square shape, and when making the inner piece for the pinwheel make sure to draw out the template one centimetre smaller on each side.

For everyone who hasn’t decided on their Easter decoration yet, don’t worry I’ve got something practical for you, which you can use not only during Easter time. This basket was my March contribution to Craftaholics Anonymous so if you saw that post you’ll recognise it. I’m sharing the pattern here again, this time with the “translation” to UK terms just in case you prefer to use them over US crochet terms (and for everyone else to missed out on the post the last time) :)

I found yet another use for my old fence pickets stash, a whimsical sign perfect for Spring. (See how much we love you, Spring? We made a sign for you and everything.) It’s also sweet for Easter, but I can keep it in my garden all season!
How to Deocrate a Mache Egg
Easter wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt or two around the garden (weather permitting of course!), and this mache egg makes the perfect hiding place, or even a place to deposit all of the found eggs. We’ve decorated our egg using acrylic paint, and then decorated the egg cup with pastel polka dots for a pastel perfect on trend egg, that could also be used as a table centrepiece after the eggs have all been found. However, you could also use decorative papers or even cover the whole thing in glitter!
