Fun and easy Easter craft projects are a tradition for most families with young kids, but COVID-19 has changed a lot about this year’s celebration. Instead of heading out on an Easter egg hunt, we’ve tried and tested a few affordable, fun and easy Easter craft projects you can order online from Kmart (and still practise social distance).

By the way, this post is NOT sponsored by Kmart and not affiliated in any way. We just wanted to do some craft!


With two kids to entertain, and no egg hunts on the horizon, we decided it was time to stock up on at-home DIY Easter craft projects. My two-year-old son and four-year-old daughter helped choose the projects with a budget of $50. We ordered online and the package arrived the next day (your experience may vary!). As an extra precaution, we requested contactless delivery and wiped over the box and products inside with antibacterial wipes when it arrived.

So, here’s how it went….!

Fun and easy Easter craft projects

1. Decorate Your Own Easter Eggs

Easter project

The kids LOVED creating these “bunnies” and slopping paint around making their creatures

The kit comes with stickers, foam stick-ons, mini pom poms and googlie eyes

Fun and easy Easter craft projects

Our finished project was not as professional, but it was super fun making the bunnies and eggs

This all-in-one kit includes:

  • Four (heavy) ceramic eggs
  • Single-purpose paint pots
  • Single use craft glue tube
  • A thin paintbrush
  • Stick-on foam pieces such as eyes and glasses, rabbit ears
  • Miniatrure fuzzy pom poms

The kids LOVED creating these “bunnies” and slopping paint around. My younger child (2) was engaged and interested by the paint, while my daughter (4) was able to create more advanced characters. The glue is small, so be sparing with it and the eggs are pretty solid, so watch if they roll off the table and land on little toes.

Cost: $8

2. Paint Your Own Easter Decorations

Easy outdoor Easter craft

Little paint pots are perfect for tiny hands (and don’t make huge, messy puddles if spilled!)

Paint Your Own Easter Decorations Craft Kmart

This Easter kit from Kmart has paints and stencilled cutouts

Fun Easter craft

The set has nine Easter cutouts to paint (eggs, bunnies and more) so kids are kept busy for ages

This was a great set as it has nine wooden flat pieces per pack, making it really good value for a fun and easy Easter craft project. The paintbrushes are a little thin and fiddly, so if your child is younger maybe throw in some extra brushes (we got the 5 Pack Grip Paint Brushes which we wanted to keep and use for other projects).

This all-in-one kit includes:

  • Thin wooden Easter decorations including garden sign, hanging flowers and eggs
  • Single-purpose paint pots
  • Lengths of string
  • Paintbrush

Cost: $5

3. Easter baskets and Social Distanced Easter Hunt

Easter Egg hunt

And fun and easy Easter activity is to make a basket  – we also snuck in some chocolate eggs too!

The biscuits come individually packaged and wrapped

They didn’t quite fit inside the closed eggs for the actual hunt but they were close!

The eggs were still a little one but the biscuits were wrapped and safely protected

Since many supermarkets had cancelled deliveries, we were struggling to source eggs for the early Easter hunt we wanted to have in isolation. Kmart did not list many of their edible products as delivery, except these Easter biscuits and a few other bits and pieces. We grabbed these, a couple of baskets and some plastic eggs to stage an early hunt. The biscuits were a bit too bit so the eggs didn’t shut, but hey, they are biscuits so that’s a win in my book! (Plus we had 23 biscuits and only 21 eggs to fill, so two for me!)

We chose:

  • A mini-pack of Easter biscuits, $6
  • Hollow eggs for the biscuits to go in (they didn’t quite fit, but they were the only food that was delivered, the rest was click and collect)
  • Easter basket (that can be decorated with leftover paint and the brushes mentioned above, if desired) – lots to choose from

Cost: $5 (biscuits), $3.50 (eggs) basket prices vary
