From colourful tissue paper eggs to bunny stick puppets, these unique Easter crafts are fun and easy to make from home.

Just because we’re still under lockdown restrictions, doesn’t mean we can’t make Easter fun for our kids this weekend.

We can still throw a traditional easter egg hunt in the back garden or attend an early (virtual) morning mass. But, with non-essential shops closed, parents are forced to get creative with Easter baskets and decorations this year.

Not to fear, however, for there are plenty of fantastic, easy-to-make Easter crafts that kids will love.
