Easter Crafts and Activities

Looking for simple crafts and activities for Easter? We’ve got you covered!

Alphabet Egg Puzzle Match

This alphabet egg puzzle is a fun way to practice matching lowercase to uppercase letters! To make the puzzle, cut egg shapes out of colorful cardstock. Then cut each egg in half with a fun pattern and write the lowercase letter on the top half with the uppercase letter on the bottom. To make the game more challenging, try using all the same color paper (so your little ones can’t match by color!). As always, feel free to adapt, based on the needs of your learners!

Thumbprint Chicks

These thumbprint chicks are a cinch to create and make the perfect Easter card!  Dip your little one’s thumb into yellow paint and then stamp the paper. Use an orange marker for the beaks and feet and a black marker for the eye.  Feel free to encourage your child to add grass, a message, or any other creative touches!

Play dough Surprise Eggs

For an Easter egg twist, open plastic eggs and hide a letter inside (or a word for older kids!).  Then cover with play dough and let your little ones open their surprises! When they open them, challenge them to say the letter or sound!  

Easter Egg Letter Dyes

Dying Easter eggs is often a fun way to celebrate the Easter holiday. You can make this activity a bit more educational by using a white crayon to write on the eggs before your little ones dye them. Write their name to practice name recognition, letters, sight words, or any other things you want to focus on! Your little ones will love dying the eggs and seeing the words appear, and you’ve also snuck in some learning! Hooray!

Easter & Spring Crafts and Activities

We've got a lot of fun Easter and Spring ideas for you! Try some of these crafts or activities to reinforce the letters and their sounds.

Letter Egg Hunt

These eggs aren’t filled with sugary candy, they’re filled with letters! Your children will enjoy hunting for eggs while also reinforcing letter sounds! After they’ve found all their eggs, encourage them to say the letter sounds as they open each egg. For more advanced learners, add groups of letters to the hunt, so they can create and read the words hidden inside. Enjoy all the fun without the sugar rush!  

Egg Letter Garland

Make these cute egg letters using colorful cardstock and crepe or tissue paper. Cut the cardstock into egg shapes and write a letter outline on each “egg.”  After your child or student crinkles the crepe or tissue paper into small balls, he can glue them to the inside of each outline. Let dry, and then hang them up for a colorful Spring or Easter display!

Alphabet Carrot Bunny Hunt

Try this easy and engaging activity to practice letter sounds! First, show your child or student how to make their own “bunny” with white pipe cleaners, two white pom poms, and a small pink pom pom for the nose. Help her hot glue the pieces together. Then hide orange and green paper carrots all around your house or classroom. Your child’s little "bunny" can hop to collect the alphabet carrots! Remember to encourage her to say the letter sounds as she finds the carrots!  

Alphabet-Eating Bird

To make this easy alphabet-eating bird, cover a cylinder-shaped canister with blue paper, glue a circle on the lid of the container for the face, and then add wings, a beak, and feet. Cut a hole in the lid to act as a mouth for letter-gobbling! Encourage your child to say the letter sounds as he feeds this hungry bird!

Baby Bird Craft

Make this adorable baby bird craft using a paper bag, plastic eggs, orange and blue paper, and a marker. First, crinkle the paper bag into a nest shape. Then transform the plastic eggs into baby birds by cutting a beak out of orange paper and gluing blue paper wings to the sides. Add two eyes and voila! Your baby bird craft is complete (and adorable!).
