Easter is a fantastic opportunity to spend some time crafting with your kids.

• How about making an Easter tree which is inspired by a Swedish tradition? Decorate an old detergent bottle or another suitable container and a walk in the countryside will help you to collect some interesting twigs. Arrange the twigs and decorate with feathers and brightly coloured eggs, or anything else you or your kids can imagine.

• Peeps mason jars are easy to create using empty mason jars decorated with brightly coloured paints.

• Peeps place card holders can be made from clay and will last for years to come.

• Cut flowers can be pricey, and it’s much more fun to make your own. Use cupcake liners folded in half and cut out some interesting petal shapes. Combine several different liners to make your flower. Using several liner sizes will create a more interesting looking flower. Hold the flower together using floral wire poked through the middle and which is covered with floral tape or brightly coloured paper.

• How about welcoming people to your home with a bunny door decoration? Making a bunny cut-out from brown felt is easy and fun. Add a little stitching, a cute bow and a cut-out basket.
