Easter Nature Crafts for Kids

Simple Easter Nature Crafts for Kids

This spring getting outside for fresh air and a little adventure is more important than ever!

Here’s a round-up of our favorite Easter Crafts using nature as both inspiration and as natural materials for our kid-friendly art projects.

Rhododendron Bunnies

Living in West Virginia, we’re surrounded by Rhododendron; it’s even our state flower! We’re excited to collect a few of these beautiful hardy leaves on our next nature walk in prep for cute bunnies inspired by this ‘Leaf Bunny Nature Craft‘ by The Pinterested Parent and the Nature Craft printable by the blog Mother Natured. Mother Natured sells a great set of really cute bunny face printables that you can purchase to make this project even more simple AND fun — especially for your youngest kiddos.

Check out the Mother Natured Bunny Nature Craft Printable video below.

Nature Bunnies

We had a great time collecting forest materials on our most recent nature walk. We’ve been using our found forest materials for a variety of arts and crafts. Today, we painted and collaged our found natural materials to make Leaf-Eared Easter Bunnies. So cute!

Blown-Out Nature Easter Eggs

This simple craft by Mothered Nature encourages outdoor adventure. First, blow out your eggs and let them dry. Next, take a nature walk to gather supplies. Use a cap as a stand and then start gluing your collected flowers, leaves, seeds and more onto your eggs! Perhaps, display your beautiful “natural” egg collection in a decorative nest!

Lia Griffith Felt Pinecone Bunnies

These cute pinecone animals are designed by Lia Griffith and feature member-only Cricut patterns and detailed instructions. For all my Cricut-obsessed friends and Moms —- these are soo cute!!!!

If you don’t have a Cricut or aren’t interested in a membership, perhaps just use these images as inspiration to make other pinecone bunnies with your kids. Instead, we suggest using hand-cut felt, foam, construction paper, googly eyes and/or a combination.

Painted Easter Egg Leaves

I’m so thrilled that Learning and Exploring Through Play shared this simple idea of cutting leaves into egg shapes and then, painting and decorating them!

With minimal prep, this project encourages lots of quality, creative time together.

Create decorated eggs (perfect for Easter Eggs) out of cut leaves.

We took this project a step further and painted a nest for the eggs to live in!
