Make Fun Easter Crafts for a Child You Love

Wow, can you believe it’s already spring? You know what that means: Easter is coming right up. This year, we’ll be celebrating Easter on Sunday, April 12, 2020.

If your family celebrates the Easter holiday, perhaps you’d enjoy making some fun Easter craft projects for a child you love.

Knitting and crochet are my crafts of choice – so when I find myself with free time available for crafting, I tend to reach for a crochet hook or pair of knitting needles.

There are bunches of different Easter projects that can be crocheted or knitted. For starters, how about making an Easter basket? You can grab a broad variety of different basket patterns that would be suitable for that purpose.

Another idea: Knit or crochet a stuffed Easter bunny toy for your favorite child (or make multiples for your favorite children). You can embroider the eyes on your bunny, or use attachable safety eyes. Some of the available bunny patterns even include instructions for making cute clothing the bunnies can wear — how adorable is that?

You could also make an Easter-themed collage, painting or drawing.

This list of Easter patterns has even more ideas for fun Easter craft projects.

For those of you who don’t celebrate Easter, there are plenty of other spring knitting and crochet patterns you might enjoy. The list includes projects for spring flowers, spring cleaning and the other spring holidays like Mother’s Day.

I hope you’ll enjoy your Easter crafts, and that you and your family will have a blessed Easter 2020.

This year, our Memorial Day celebration in the United States will take place on Monday, May 25, 2020. This is a day when we honor the men and women who died while they were in the military service of our beloved country.

If you plan to dress in red, white and blue for Memorial Day this year, perhaps you might enjoy making and wearing this simple-but-lovely red and blue beaded bracelet to accessorize your ensemble.

This is an ultra-simple bead crochet project. If you’d like to learn how to crochet with beads, this bracelet is a good way to get started with learning the technique; it’s a fast, low-commitment project that’s not too challenging. You might have heard that bead crochet is hard or complicated, but when you make this project, you’ll quickly see that there isn’t anything mysterious or complex about it.

I hope you’ll enjoy using the skills you learn from this project — and wearing your bracelet — long after Memorial Day has passed.

What do you do when spring weather in your neighborhood isn’t as warm as you’d like? Well, you have to dress warmly — and if you have children, you have to be doubly sure of keeping the kiddos warm when you dress them. But you can certainly choose warm clothing designs that incorporate flowers and other spring friendly design themes.

The hat you see pictured here is one of my favorite options for a warm, cozy, spring-friendly baby hat. It’s perfect for wearing while chilly spring weather persists.

This hat is known as the “Pretty Posies” baby hat. The pattern for crocheting this design is included in a book called Dressing Up Baby by Darla Sims. Leisure Arts is the publisher. If you were to ask me to recommend a baby pattern book to you, this is definitely the one I’d choose; I LOVE the adorable patterns in this book, and all of them are fast and easy to crochet.

The book is focused on giving you matching baby layette sets including patterns for matching baby blankets, booties, hats and sweaters. The book has designs for both baby girls and boys, although there are more patterns for baby girls than there are for boys.
