We love all sorts of recycled crafts for Easter.. from Newspaper Easter Crafts to egg cartons and toilet paper rolls and more.. check out our top ideas here.

Turn old Cardboard into some fun art work for Easter! This is a fun Sponge Printing Easter Bunny art challenge, entirely made from upcycled cardboard.
Easter Sewing Projects for Kids
This is one of my favourite Easter Crafts to date – How about some “juggling chooks” – well you don’t have to juggle with them, you can have them as pretty decor, or you can play bean bag toss like we did! But they are SUPER easy to make – hand or machine sew and make a great project for someone learning to sew! Also a great way to use up slightly large pieces of scrap fabric.
We have long loved these easy to sew Bunny Rag Dolls (with free pattern). I made these from some old corduroy trousers and shirt as a gift to my kids when I had to go away for a bit once! Later we made some clothes for them.
A little while later we sewed and even easier version together! Love these easy Bunny Sew a Softies!
If you still have the sewing needles and felts out.. this is a Bunny Brooch craft GREAT for beginners – in fact, why not sit down and teach the kids to sew? Easy and cute and make lovely little Easter gifts too!x
