Low-cost Easter crafts for kids (and children)

By Merche Diaz

Christmas does not feel too long ago when suddenly Easter bunnies start hooping and showing up. The fact is, that you don’t necessarily need to spend money on overpriced chocolate and sweets during Easter.

To keep the younger ones happy and busy at home, or even for yourself if you are away from home or you’d like to decorate your place to keep it themed and cozy.

Encouraging children to create their own crafts and being part of that process, making mistakes and getting final results, not only increases their self-confidence but also develops their imagination and a sense of self-sufficiency.

Before starting off the official Easter egg treasure hunt, here are a few ideas on how to prepare and get ready.
