We may not be travelling anywhere these Easter holidays, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get into the spirit at home with some awesome crafts!

Felt hot cross buns
These might take the cake – nay, the ‘hot cross bun’ – for the cutest Easter craft activity we’ve ever seen. Look at them! With just a few pieces of felt, some glue and some wool and cotton balls you’ll have a plate of hot cross buns that look good enough to eat. All you need is a cup of felt tea to enjoy them with!

Pom pom bunnies
These are seriously cute – and offer so much room for creativity! While the video shows you how to make a basic pom pom bunny (which is adorable in its own right) there are a few tweaks you can make to take your craft to the next level. Why not stick your bunny face down in a spare plant pot, and have his little tail and feet hanging out the side? You could also use a hairbrush to fluff up your pom pom bunny, or make a wreath with lots of small bunny faces. The opportunities are endless!

Salt paint Easter eggs
We know what you’re thinking: what on Earth is salt paint? It’s only the coolest textured paint around, and you can craft it out of two totally run-of-the-mill household items: Elmer’s glue and (you guessed it) table salt. Draw an egg or any other Easter shape on a piece of paper, then trace with glue, sprinkle very generously with salt and gently shake off any excess. When dry, paint with liquid watercolour paint.

Toilet paper roll crafts
A few weeks ago, toilet paper was the hottest commodity around – now, it’s toilet paper roll that we’re holding onto, and it’s because of these cute craft ideas! From painting bunny faces using a simple loo roll stencil to turning toilet paper rolls into little bunnies and chickens, there are so many ways to use your formerly-unwanted rubbish for a fun Easter craft.

Spare sock bunnies
Finally, the solution to all of those mismatched socks! These spare sock bunnies are so easy to make. All you need are some rubber bands, some uncooked rice, a ribbon, black marker pen and, of course, your socks! Pour the rice into one sock, tie the top closed with a rubber band, then take a second rubber band and tie it around the middle to create the head and body. Take a third rubber band to create the tail, chop the ears out of the excess sock and use your marker to draw bunny eyes, nose and mouth. Add ribbon for extra flair!
