If you want to get creative but lacking in time or skills, try these great super easy ideas!

Head to Big W and grab a party hat, some pipe cleaners and Styrofoam eggs and you are well on your way to making this awesome creation. Get the kids to paint the eggs any colour they like and finish the hat by trimming it with a piece of tinsel.

Super easy Easter crown

If you have absolutely no time to make an Easter bonnet, opt for this crown instead. It can be whipped up in less than 20 minutes and all you need is cardboard, paints or pastels and a stapler.
