Easter crafts for kids – Simple button flower decorations and Chocolate Easter nests

Following on from my previous two posts here are my last two Bostik craft club tutorials. I hope you enjoy making (and eating) them!

IMG_7928Simple Button Flower Decorations

What you’ll need:




Bostik Glue


Start by drawing flower shapes onto your felt, you’ll need two pieces for each flower. Cut out each piece carefully.

Chocolate Easter Nests

What you’ll need:

Shredded wheat


Mini Eggs


Starting by melting your chocolate, this can be done in a double boiler on in the microwave, if using the microwave make sure to melt in short bursts of about 10 seconds and then stir, this will help to stop the chocolate burning.IMG_7709

Crush up some shredded wheat cereal and add to the bowl of melted chocolate, you can actually mix in a surprisingly large amount, so don’t hold back. Once mixed arrange inside cake cases using a spoon and then drop some mini eggs inside to complete the nest. Leave to set.IMG_7767


How to make an Easter Bumble Bee and Easter Rabbit Tutorial

IMG_7751In my last post I showed you a collection of our recently completed Easter Crafts as part of the Bostik craft network. Today I’ll show you how to make an Easter Bumble Bee and Easter Rabbit with our simple and fun tutorial.

You will Need

Polystyrene Egg shapes

Googly Eyes

Bostik Glu Dots



Pipe Cleaners


Pom Poms

Sheets of craft foam

Bumble Bee

IMG_7716Start by colouring in one of your egg shapes yellow with black stripes.


Next take two pieces of pipe cleaner (a colour of your own choice, we used purple) and bend into wing shapes. IMG_7721

Take another four lengths of yellow or orange pipe cleaner and bend to make legs, obviously if you want a technically correct bee he should have six legs, but four fitted in much more neatly.IMG_7722

Push the leg pieces into one side of the coloured polystyrene egg shape. Push the wing shapes into the opposite side.

Finally stick some large googly eyes to the front of your bee, and push a small length of yellow pipe cleaner into the end to make his stinger!IMG_7736


Begin by colouring in a polystyrene egg shape in a colour of your choice.IMG_7723

Next take a length of ribbon and fold as shown in these pictures to make the rabbit’s ears. Attach the ribbon ears to the thin end of your egg shape using a Bostik glu dot.IMG_7725IMG_7728IMG_7729

Next stick on two googly eyes to the front. Then using a Bostik glue dot stick a button on to give the rabbit a nose, you can draw the whiskers on using a felt tip pen.


To allow your rabbit to stand up unaided he will need some feet! Cut feet shape from your craft foam and attach to the base of your bunny using a Bostik glu dot.

Finally give your rabbit a lovely cotton tail by attaching a pom pom with a Bostik glu dot to his back.



Easter Crafts for kids with Bostik!

Time for my second post as part of the Bostik Craft Bloggers Network. Every month Bostik send members of the network a pack containing crafty materials and challenge us to create something to share with our readers. Today I’ll show you an overview of the Easter crafts for kids that I came up with. I’ll post up the relevant tutorials over the coming days, so keep your eyes on the blog 🙂

This month Bostik kindly sent me a large craft box containing:

IMG_7715Bostik Glu Dots

Bostik Glitter Pens



3 Polystyrene Egg shapes


Pipe Cleaners


Various foam shapes, pom poms and googly eyes


Cake Papers


I was thoroughly pleased to receive so many wonderful materials to work with, but what could I do with them all that would make fun Easter crafts for kids? After some discussions with my three little people I came up with some very simple and fun craft ideas.

We made:Easter Crafts for kids

Easter cards (using the card, foam shapes and Bostik glitter pens)

Bumble Bee and Rabbits (using the polystyrene eggs, googly eyes, foam, pom poms, pipe cleaners and Bostik Glu Dots)

Chocolate Easter Nests (using the cake papers)

Easter Tree flower decorations (using the felt, buttons, ribbon and Bostik glue)

An Easter chick (using googly eyes, foam, pom poms and Bostik Glu Dots)


The kids had a fabulous time and I think they did a really great job with their Easter creations. If you would like to make your own versions of these fun crafts keep checking back as I’ll post up full tutorials over this coming week.
