Spring has sprung here in North America, but depending on where you live, it's possible Mother Nature didn't get the memo. If you're stuck inside and looking for something to do, we've got you covered with some fun and easy Easter crafts you can make with the kids--or all by yourself! Some of these look just plain fun for anyone; no kids necessary.

1. Easter Wreath

Make sure the Easter Bunny knows which house is yours with a festive Easter wreath to hang on your front door.

You can opt for greenery, burlap bow, a bird's nest, and a fancy banner.

Go crazy with this wild egg wreath with buttons, bows, greens, and chicks, plus dangling Easter baubles that are sure to grab everyone's attention.

Or you can say it with flowers and keep this wreath around for the duration of Spring--or even Summer, if you're not inspired to swap out your door d?cor too often.


2. Bunny Habitat

For a craft that can keep kids (or even you!) entertained long after the crafting is over, you can create one of these cute bunny habitats. Add a few figures and scenes and get your funny voices ready so you can improvise some scenarios with these DIY playsets.

Decorate this adborable bunny house fashioned from a milk carton.

3. Storybook Inspired Peeps Diorama

Stumped for a story to act out? Check out these scenes that were inspired by kids' favorite books.

For your little princess aficionado, here's a Cindarella scene fit for a queen.

For something a little more old-school and intense, you can reenact the drama of Peter Rabbit raiding the garden for some juicy carrots.

4. Egg-Dyeing Alternatives

If you're bored with the annual ho-hum dip-dye routine, you can try out some new ways to decorate your Easter eggs.

If you opt for paint, the possibilities are endless. Let the white egg serve as a blank canvas. Recreate the masters, or just slap on some pretty colors. Whatever you're in the mood for.

Buttons, beads, and tulle: oh my! Or if you want to create some cute egg critters, think googly eyes and cut-out bunny ears

5. Easter Cards

To send out Easter tidings to friends or grandparents, these easy-to-make cards are the perfect solution.

Choose different colors and patterns to make bunny cut-outs. Don't forget the puffy tails!

For a card even a toddler can make, create a simple egg cut-out, then pass the crayons!

You don't need to have high egg-spectations to tackle these easy, fun Easter crafts. Just a few supplies and a lot of imagination, and you're good to go. Hoppy Easter!
