3 Easy Easter Crafts for Preschoolers

Easter Crafts galore using footprints, fingerprints, and paint! Check out 3 of my FAVORITE super easy Easter crafts that are really fun for the kids and VERY easy for Mom to clean up. I like crafts that are SIMPLE and keep the children’s attention span too. Letting kids get down and dirty with paint is ideal – give them a chance to enjoy the texture and get creative in the process!

I love that these 3 crafts use primarily “household” craft closet items – think paint, paintbrushes, markers or crayons, construction paper, scissors, and wiggly eyes all of which you can buy at Walmart. Chocolate Pudding Mix is a bonus ingredient for our Dark Chocolate Rabbit activity but it is not required if you don’t happen to have any powdered pudding at home.

The instructions are pretty self explanatory- just peeking at these crafts we created below will inspire you.

Dark Chocolate Easter Bunny: Smells yummy too!

Tip: For the Dark Chocolate Bunny to smell delicious, mix chocolate pudding powder into your brown paint before you let your child paint the rabbit. This will give your paper craft the scent of real chocolate and the kids will love it!

    My crew is a little old for these, but I wonder if they could be cajoled into the chocolate bunnies? I mean, who doesn’t want to make something that smells like chocolate? :)
