Easter Egg Crafts for Kids: Round up the kids - scissors - and glue! It's time to get crafting! These adorable eggs are so fun to make! And they make a great Easter centerpiece too!

I can’t begin to count how many dozen Easter eggs we have colored over the years. I bet you are the same way. It always made such a mess – towels and newspaper covered the table, vinegar, cups and spoons everywhere, but oh was it fun! Even though my boys are older, we still color eggs – and yes, it’s still mess, but we have fun.

There won’t be much mess with these Easter eggs though. The adorable little animals only take a few supplies and the kiddos can help too.

Animal Easter Eggs

They look really cute, nestled in grass on the table. You could also use them as place settings, put them in a basket or give as gifts. Let’s get started…

Supplies to make Easter Egg Crafts for Kids

I found all the supplies I needed at Walmart. The eggs are really neat, they are painted chalkboard. You can certainly use regular plastic eggs, however there are a couple reasons I used the decorative eggs. 1) plastic eggs have holes on each end, and I thought the animal faces would look funny with holes in them and 2) using a hot glue gun, I wasn’t sure the plastic egg would hold up.

If you have little ones helping, you can use regular glue, the hot glue is super quick though.

Easter Egg Animal Supplies

  • Eggs – plastic or chalkboard Easter eggs ($1.98/dozen)
  • Fuzzy Kit – this package includes the pipe cleaners, fuzzy pom poms and googly eyes
  • Craft Foam – this is sold by the piece or I bought a package of multiple colors
