Meet Happy Nest Maternity Nurse AbiApril 6, 2016
The Easter long weekend is almost here and we’re getting excited for Hot Cross buns and chocolate eggs on Sunday morning! This time of year is so fun, we just love all of the pastels, the spring time vibes, and happy, cute bunny images everywhere.
If you’re looking for something to do with the children over the Easter long weekend, (or even during the spring break), we’ve compiled a list of the best DIY activities for crafting and baking and playing.
Have a lovely Easter, and remember – lots of water is rumoured to be the ultimate cure for a chocolate coma. Here’s our roundup of our pick of the top Easter activities for kids.

[velocity_headline title=”2. Toilet Roll Easter Bunny Crafts (Happy Nest)”]
Toilet rolls make the perfect craft box item because you can pretty much guarantee you’ve always got one or two on hand. They’re also a good size for little hands to hold comfortably and are durable and pliable. Link: Toilet Roll Easter Bunny Craft
[velocity_headline title=”3. DIY Giant Origami Bunnies (Oh Happy Day)”]
Cute, cute, cute! These pastel origami bunnies from Oh Happy Day are so much fun. Origami can be a little challenging for the little ones, but oh so worth it in the end. Plus it’s great for building hand and eye coordination and fine motor skills. Why not decorate your Easter celebrations with some fun DIY decorations. Link: DIY Giant Origami Bunny

My gosh, is their anything better than cake?! We’re loving this gorgeous speckled cake from A Beautiful Mess. Enjoy the family time this weekend and eat cake together! Link: Speckled Easter Egg Cake
[velocity_headline title=”5. Recycled Egg Carton Mini Easter Egg Baskets (NANNY SHECANDO)”]
Colourful Cadbury Easter eggs and little carry baskets? Yes please! These fun DIY craft from NANNY SHECANDO and A Crafty LIVing are a great way to limit your child’s chocolate intake after a decent Easter egg hunt haul – because it can be quite tricky to try and explain to the wee ones about moderation when it comes to sweet goodies.

[velocity_headline title=” 6. Beautiful Decoupaged Easter Eggs (Mums Take Five)”]
These decoupaged Easter eggs make a beautiful table centrepiece, and will add the final touch to your Easter weekend celebrations. If the children are getting a bit restless in the afternoon, set them up with the glue and let them get creating! Link: Decoupaged Easter Eggs
[velocity_headline title=”7. Watercolour Easter Egg Cookies (We Are Scout)”]
Watercolours and cookies are two of our favourite things – you can’t have a cup of tea without a biscuit! These watercolour easter egg cookies are so delightful, and combine a child friendly (light on the spice) gingerbread cookie dough with icing fondant. Use light brush strokes and natural water colour dyes to create amazing patterns in your fondant. Link: Watercolour Easter Egg Cookies

This cute bunny comes in three adorable colour options and is ready to stuff with your favourite Easter treats! Link: Printable Bunny Bags
