Easter Ideas

On my search for crafty things to make for Easter instead of giving lots of chocolate I came across some great alternatives I thought you might like too.

* I thought these Easter egg biscuits would make nice homemade alternative and with this activity you can also involve children too, a great idea over the holidays.
* Aren't these little earrings really sweet for young girls?  This idea is perfect for all sorts of occasions too not just Easter.
* These Easter printables are a great idea for young children to improve their memory skills while having fun.
* Or you could applique a little bunny on to a top for a little one.
* I really liked these felt Easter bags that you or older children could make, fill them with chocolate eggs or an Easter biscuit.
* And for those who love to crochet these little eggs are very cute and a bunch of them in a bowl would make a lovely table setting.

Have you been making any Easter gifts?


  1. Oh my goodness Catherine...thanks for all those lovely i am here looking at them all instead of going to bed!
    I'm going to do some easter baking with Miss teen on Friday before she heads off to her Dad's for the hols!

  2. There are some wonderful ideas here Catherine,thanks for the links. I think I'll do the biscuits with the kids on the weekend when we do our hotcross buns :)

  3. I love the felt Easter bags. Not a lot of Easter gift-making over here. I've been practicing my sewing skills on other small things just to get myself back into it. It's been a little while.

  4. Loving your Easter gift ideas, as per usual! My fave is the bunny card!

  5. Thanks for all these links Catherine. Grace and I have been enjoying doing some Easter crafts this week so I'll be sure to save some of these ideas. I love that card above. We were going to make some biscuits tomorrow too - I have a recipe for 'Hot Cross biscuits' I want to try from last week's newspaper.

  6. I am going to spend Easter day with my daughter and her boyfriend in Milan, I packed hard eggs that I dyed, a nice chocolate egg, tea towels for the new kitchen, a bottle of champagne since they just moved....I love to think of them in their new flat and bring gifts, Easter is a good excuse to do so (not that there is any need of an excuse to donate!).

  7. Those cards look super duper cute!
