15 Fun Easter Recipes For Kids

Easter is a great holiday for kids because there’s so much that you can do with them during their time off, from making Easter crafts and decoration to spending the time at the local farm park.

Baking is a massive hit this time of year, with so many fun Easter recipes for kids available online.

In this post I’ve rounded up fifteen of my favourite, kid-friendly recipes that’ll keep your little ones occupied during the festive time.

Easter Egg Breakfast Popsicles

The best way to start Easter is with a tasty snack, but with so many unhealthy chocolate eggs on their way it’s hard not to add to it! I love these as they’re simple, fun, and much healthier than other alternatives.

Rice Krispie Nests

Chocolate nests are an absolute given with Easter. We usually make milk chocolate shredded wheat nests, however, I love making white chocolate rice krispie nests for a change. The “grass” that goes with the eggs is a lovely added touch!

Easter Bunny Marbled Cut Out Cookies

Kids will love how colourful and pretty these cookies are, and they’re actually really easy to make. I adore the little bunny tails!

Easy No-Bake Chocolate Bunny Treats

Another tasty bunny treat, these are particularly great for kids because they don’t involve any baking plus they’re fun to decorate. Be warned though – they won’t last long!

Rice Krispie Easter Chicks

There’s something about treats that have a face – they’re just so much cuter. Another rice krispie recipe, these chicks are easy to make with the kids and are perfect for an Easter party.

Mini Lemon Flower Tarts

I love to celebrate the abundance of flowers during Easter so floral cakes and biscuits are a must. These mini lemon flower tarts are gorgeous to look at, plus they only have two ingredients!

Marshmallow Sheep Cupcakes

I absolutely love this recipe as it’s great for lots of kids to make at the same time. It would work really well at an Easter party! Bake the cakes beforehand then set up a decorating session for a fun Easter activity.

Easter Chocolate Bark

This is possibly the sugariest Easter recipe I’ve come across, but kids go absolutely wild for it. Bark is so easy to make, and it’s also really customisable, so children can add whatever treats they like.

These are all absolutely adorable! I know Easter is over now, but I really missed getting to do fun activities with my nephews and nieces. When lockdown is over I might have a very belated Easter party and show off with a few of these fab recipes!
