Links for Easter Crafts ~ Since I’m Craft-Challenged

If you’ve been reading here for long, you know that I don’t post about crafts. I love the idea of crafts, and I love the pictures of completed crafts. I love daydreaming of crafts and perusing the aisles of Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. But somehow I missed that gene that actually enables me to do a craft. However, Spring is the season that makes my heart thumpety-thump with the anticipation of crafting. So, instead of showing you my miserable failures, I’m just going to share links to other great bloggers for your craftilicious inspiration.


The Happy Housewife provides links to seven different activities to share with your children, some crafts and some recipes. I thought her Empty Tomb Chocolate Donuts sounded perfect for my children!

Classic Housewife is completing art projects with her children in preparation for Easter. If you’re brave with paint, the watercolors sound like a beautiful project.

Sew Can Do provides a clever alternative to a big chocolate bunny ~ a plush velour bunny. Sew cute! I wonder if I have the time for this between now and Sunday?

You all know how much I love the Holy Spirit-Led Homeschooling blog. She’s provided a free download of Easter printables, including coloring pages, mazes, etc.

The Homeschool Classroom provides a printable pattern for cutting out an adorable Easter basket.

My blogging friend Crystal at Serving Joyfully shared her recipe and devotional for Resurrection Rolls with a free printable. We did this recipe last year for the first time. When we broke them open, my then-6yo asked, wide-eyed and solemn, “Did the marshmallow go to Heaven?” We're definitely doing these again this year.

3 Dinosaurs has a free downloadable resurrection pack filled with coloring pages and other printables for ages two through seven. Super cute!

Finally, Denise in Bloom posted a tutorial for a table-top resurrection garden, complete with the empty tomb to open on Sunday morning. Love. It.

I’ve created a Pinterest board called Easter Joy, and I’ve pinned these there, if that’s a better way for you to access them.

Don’t these activities look fabulous? Okay, ladies…. Ready? Set? Go!








What activities, crafts, or recipes are you doing this Easter?

  1. :) I'm not that crafty myself BUT I love helping my grandkids with simple crafts - my speed. My favorite Easter (and anytime) craft nowadays is helping my grandkids convert their love of all things computer into things that teach them about God and His love. This year they are into Minecraft - so we spent an afternoon making Easter vignettes on their Minecraft game. A couple of years ago, they made their own Easter Resurrection eggs using LEGOs to make the little reminders of the last week of Christ's life. I love sharing these simple ideas with them and with others at SandwichINK.com :)

    I also have long distance grandkids who are younger and still into the paper and cutting projects. These look grand for sharing with them. Thanks for the fun ideas and lovely visit.

    1. Computer crafts -- never thought of that! Considering how techy everyone has to be these days, that might be a good way for the children to learn some computer skills. Thanks for the great ideas, Kaye!
