How to create a fun Easter gift for your loved ones

Easter is just around the corner. It will be an unusual holiday again this year, with social distancing and hygiene rules. Even if you can’t celebrate with your entire family, your friends and colleagues, you can brighten their day with little gifts and spruce up your house with home-made Easter decorations. And it’s incredibly easy: a perforator, a stapler, scissors and co. make it child’s play. Simply send your gifts by post to bring a smile to your loved ones’ faces without putting them at risk of infection.

By the way, crafting is even more fun when you do it with your family, and especially with children. Over the holidays, children are grateful for interesting and fun things to do.

We have put together some great DIY crafting ideas for Easter gifts and decorations and created instructions for you to make your own.
