Easter Bonnet Ideas for kids

So lets get started on these fun crafts for kids to make this Easter. As always, I encourage you to rummage in your craft box for some basic materials such as markers, scissors, paper and glue and see what you can make with these combined with some recycled materials. Avoid unnecessary purchases from the craft store, hobby craft or amazon. Keep it simple but FUN! Hopefully you will find just the tutorial to suit your needs!

This is definitely more of an Easter Hat Decorating idea.. though of course a bonnet would look great making this too. Solar System Easter Bonnet – I love the little Easter Bunny Astronauts. This is a simple hat to make, that is so much fun (and educational!!). This would be a great one for a SCHOOL Easter parade competition, don’t you think?

Easter Bonnet Craft for Preschoolers decorated for Easter and with Flowers

We made these newspaper hats many many moons ago. They are so fun and so simple.. and can easily and quickly be decorated for an Easter Bonnet parade by adding decorated Easter eggs to the decorations. But you can decorate these in whatever way you wish… add tissue paper flowers & tissue paper leaves, cut out cardboard bunnies, add dinosaurs and dinosaur eggs, or make a dressy bonnet with some bows… your creativity is the limit! Avoid using plastic eggs and check out how to decorate with hollow eggs here.

Cardboard Easter Crown

Have fun with cardboard with these fabulous giant Cardboard Bunny Easter Bonnets! So cute. We do love upcycled crafting. Love that all you need to cut is some simple shapes for your bunny’s haead and bunny ears. You could also take off the bunny tail and add a bunny face and some paws instead, if you want? I particularly love the carrot shapes with the green curled consturtion paper! Can you take the same principle of this tutorial and make an Easter Egg Crown too?

A little bit of an “Easter Bonnet Cheat” – as we haven’t turned these into hats YET!! However these Paper Teacups have long been on my “convert into a fascinator” to do list – you could thread an Alice band through the bottom and done! Decorate with flowers or hollow egg chicks or anything Easter-themed, if you wish! Check out our patterned Teacups too – choose from flowers, roses or stripes! A fascinator sure would make a dressy bonnet, don’t you think?

Mad Hatter’s Paper Hat
