Easter Crafts for Kids

If you're looking for some easy Easter crafts for kids, look no further than your kitchen. There are some easy kid recipes that can be adapted to any holiday, and are both fun to make and fun to eat.

Take an ordinary cupcake recipe. What could be easier? Either use the basic recipe we provide, or use a cake mix in the flavor of your choice. Either way, you'll be sharing a culinary experience with your child and providing an easy Easter craft for your kids that borders on original food art. Let your imaginations soar when it comes to decorating your Easter cupcake recipe.

Let's take a look at our super easy instructions! Here's what you'll need:

Basic Cupcake Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 package (12-oz.) mini chocolate chips, divided
Directions

Preheat oven to 375°
  • In a separate bowl, beat sugar, butter and vanilla until creamy
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition
  • Beat in the flour mixture alternating with the milk
  • Add 3/4 cup chocolate chips and stir by hand.
  • Spoon into 24 greased and paper-lined muffin cups. Fill 3/4 full.


Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool slightly in pans on wire racks, then remove to wire racks to completely cool. Frost and sprinkle with remaining morsels.

Basic Frosting Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  • Beat powdered sugar, butter, milk, vanilla extract until creamy.
  • Add 1 cup melted chocolate chips for flavor, optional


Decorating tips: It's really very easy to decorate cupcakes, and kids will have a ball just frosting them.

Use sprinkles, tinted coconut, colored sugars and gels as decoration. Pipe on a message, or shape decorations from colored marzipan. Imagination really rules here!

We used tinted coconut (a few drops of food coloring added to the coconut-then shake in a plastic bag for coverage) and some jelly beans to create "easter egg nests."

Be sure to store your cupcakes in a tightly covered container so they do not harden or go stale. That is, if they last that long!
