Easter is a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ 3 days after his crucifixion (which is now called Good Friday). Christians believe that Jesus died for our sins so that good Christians can go to heaven when they die. There are many Easter traditions such as The Easter Bunny filling an Easter basket with candy and treats. The Easter Bunny gives each child one of these baskets. The Easter Bunny also hides colorful eggs all over the yard so you can go find them. Another old tradition is to buy new fancy Easter clothes to wear to church on Easter day. Although all of these traditions are fun, they don't have much to actually do with the religious holiday called Easter.
Below you will find many Easter Crafts projects for you and your children. Your kids will enjoy these Easter arts and crafts activities such as crafts to make an Easter Bunny, Easter Eggs, Easter Baskets, Easter Bunnies, and other crafts.
