Easter craft activities …and products you need!

Easter half-term has come early and with that, so has the two week pressure to entertain! However, there’s no need to worry, as we have put together an everything-you-need guide to keeping your little ones busy, having fun and crafting!


Who better to take inspiration from than our very own Maped Helix influencers?! Their ideas and artsy-ways are always something to marvel at, but they’re also so easy to follow and try for yourselves at home!


Here are some of our favourite Maped Helix crafting ideas for Easter, along with some of our favourite products to keep them entertained!



Finger Painting Cards!


The wonderful Jessica from @mummy_and_my_three put our my firsts finger paints to perfect use with these adorable hand-made Easter cards. The combination of crafting and meaningful sentiment is beautifully blended with these special cards as something fun and interactive for your little ones, whilst also making a lovely keepsake for family and friends.

Fun fact: Our my first finger paints are completely non-toxic and washable!


Top Tip: Don’t forget to get involved in Tesco’s fantastic Easter promotion that we’re a part of with our My first colouring kit, in stores now. Make sure you grab one in time for half term crafts or as a lovely Easter gift.




Crafty Bunnies!


The queen of crafts @creative_mama_che has nailed it again with this easy and accessible craft idea. Instead of throwing away your empty toilet roll holders, why not make some adorable bunnies?! By simply bending and cutting into shape, you can completely customize your bunnies to however you wish and then sweetly display these either around the house or as table decorations!

Paper Mache Easter Eggs!


Our Easter Egg competition has now come to an end, but that doesn’t mean your paper macheing has to! This craft is incredibly handy as  a way to keep your little ones entertained for a longer period of time over the half term. They will feel so much pride when they finally finish their wonderful Easter masterpieces and get to display them proudly!

Beautiful Easter gifts!


The wonderful @_ginagill used a mix of our favourite colouring pens and pencils to create some lovely seed packets for family and friends! Decorating their handmade bags with our magic felt pens, oops colouring pencils and duo stamps, I’m sure these went down a treat as a perfect, handmade Easter gift.
