Any holiday is a good excuse to get crafty with the kids, and Easter has the added advantage of (hopefully) sunshine, flowers, and cute fluffy animals. There are loads of fun, easy Easter crafts included in this selection to suit kids of all ages – some they can do alone, while others will need a helping hand from Mom or Dad, too, which is no hardship as we think you’ll love them as much as the kids.
