We know kids will be eagerly awaiting the Easter bunny’s arrival, so we’ve found some creative kits to keep them busy in the meantime. Whether you’re looking for a traditional Easter bonnet, a classic card or something a little tastier, we should have an Easter craft kit your kids will love.

Most of the sets in our list below can be done as a family, making it a great bank holiday activity to enjoy all together.

Plus, if you’re looking for more themed ideas to keep little ones busy, we’ve also rounded up some of the best Easter egg making kits as well as tried and tested Easter craft ideas.

Here’s our pick of the best Easter craft kits…

1. Easter Bonnet Decorating Kit, £2

Easter bonnets are a lovely tradition and a great Easter craft for kids and adults to have a go at. This decorating kit is packed with pom poms, ribbon, flowers, foam feathers and more so little ones can create their own unique designs.

If you need a hat to decorate, you can find a wide range of reasonably priced options also from Hobby Craft.

Previous buyers said there were “more than enough items to decorate a bonnet” in the kit and said it was “great value for money.”

“We’ve bought these for a few years now, a cheaper way to decorate when you have a few children making bonnets than buying everything individually,” added one parent.

2. toucanBox Easter boxes, £12 each or from £33 for monthly gift subscription

This Easter craft box is packed to the brim with fun activities to keep your kids busy over the break.

For kids who love the outdoors, you get all the tools to assemble a flower press for wild flower foraging. They can then use the pressed flowers to decorate animal banners included in the kit.

Or for some family fun, make and decorate animal bowling pins with a mini ramp, alley and bowling ball to get striking!

3. Paint Your Own Egg Money Box, £3

This is probably the only Easter egg that will outlast the bank holiday weekend! The blank ceramic egg arrives ready to decorate with a set of 6 paints and a brush, so you shouldn’t need to add anything else to get kids started.

The ceramic money box can then be kept and used to store pennies up – to buy more chocolate!

One reviewer on the Hobby Craft website bought the set for a 6 year old and described it as a, “solid piece of pottery,” which was “very easy to paint.”

Others described the activity as a, “creative and fun way to occupy kids” which was “great value” and “excellent quality.”

4. Decorate your own Easter egg cookie set, from £7.30

This is a great painting kit which kids can eat at the end. The set includes cookies in 2 different flavours along with a set of edible paint. You’ll also receive a brush, instructions and even a certificate for once the hard work is done (and the eating can begin!).

The cookies can also be frozen until needed and instructions for freezing are included.

Reviewers who had used the kit in past said the biscuits, “tasted amazing, and we had so much fun decorating them and it was easy enough for my 2 year old to join in.” Others agreed, calling the cookies “super yummy”, “soft and delicious.”
