Toilet Roll Easter Bunnies

  1. First paint your toilet rolls white.
  2. Make the bunny ears by tracing out ears on white card or paper and then making a smaller ear insert with some coloured paper of your choice.
  3. Next either use some googly eyes to stick on if you have them, if not then you can draw them on with a felt tip.
  4. Then if you have some pipe cleaners twist them around each other and glue this down to the paper roll. If you do not have pipe cleaners then you can draw the whiskers on with a felt tip.
  5. Glue a small pom pom on top of the pipe cleaners for the nose or draw the nose on with a felt tip.
  6. Glue the ears to the inside of the top of your paper roll. Then draw on the mouth with a felt tip.

Bunny & Chick Easter Biscuits

How incredibly cute are these little Bunny & Chick biscuits. You can bake your own cookies or use shop bought, and if you can’t get your hands on edible eyes, you could just make your own using icing and mini chocolate chips!

Easter Brownie Bites

Ingredients:

  • 175g butter, chopped
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 250g light brown soft sugar
  • 85 self-raising flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 100g milk chocolate chips
  • 24 mini chocolate eggs, plus extra to decorate

 

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line 24 holes of a mini muffin tray with paper cases. Put the butter, dark chocolate and sugar in a pan and heat it very gently, stirring all the time until the butter and chocolate have melted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sift the flour, cocoa and a good pinch of salt into a large bowl. Stir in the warm, melted chocolate mixture and the beaten eggs, then add half the chocolate chips and mix until just combined. 
  3. Divide the mixture between the cases and place a mini egg into the middle of each muffin, pushing down gently. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cooked but still gooey in the centre – they will continue cooking a little as they cool down. Leave to cool for 10 minutes in the tin before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Melt the rest of the chocolate chips in short bursts in the microwave, or in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring frequently. Leave to cool until it is quite thick, then dot a small amount on each cake and stick on some more mini eggs.

Finger Painting Easter Cards

These are some simple designs of Easter cards that you and your child can make!

Hand Print Chicks

You will need: 

  • Yellow and orange paint
  • White craft paper
  • Yellow craft paper
  • Orange craft paper
  • Black pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue

 

Directions:

  1. Coat child’s hands with a layer of yellow paint and make a handprint of each hand on white paper. 
  2. Next coat child’s feet with a layer of orange paint and make a footprint of each foot on white paper. Set the handprints and footprints aside to dry.  
  3. Cut a large oval out of the yellow paper for the chick’s body. You can draw a line and have the child cut it out or you can cut it out for them. 
  4. Cut two smaller ovals for the eyes and draw circles on them with the pen. 
  5. Cut a triangle for the beak and a wavy shape for the top of the chicks head. 
  6. Assemble the chick by gluing the eyes, beak, and top to the chick. 
  7. Cut around the handprints and footprints. If your child’s foot is a bit too big then cut off the bottom part of their footprint to be better proportioned to the chick. You can use the whole footprint or size it down, it’s up to you or your child. Glue the handprints to the side of the chick for the wings and glue the footprints to the bottom of the chick for its feet. Once the glue is dry your chick can be hung up to enjoy

Tin Foil Easter Eggs

You will need:

 

Directions:

  1. Cut out an egg shape from your cardboard. An adult can help draw the shape and cut out if needed. 

  2. Tear off a piece of tin foil from your roll. Lay your egg on top of it and then fold the tin foil edges over the egg all over so the front of the egg is completely covered in the foil. 

  3. Leaving the lid on the Sharpie marker or felt tip, have your child use it to draw lines and designs all over the tin foil Easter egg to add some extra texture to the egg. Plus, it’s great to practice hand-eye coordination and general pre-writing skills with the tracing. 

  4. When they are finished drawing designs, they can use all of the Sharpie markers or felt tips to trace over their designs and add any more details that they’d like.
