As much as we all love a good chocolate Easter egg, they disappear far too soon if you're anything like us, which is why an Easter card is a great idea, as it's something the receiver can cherish for as long as they please. Our favourite Easter cards are the DIY ones where you can tell the maker (aka child!) has really got stuck in.
Making an Easter card is also a fun activity to do together, and the possibilities are endless, meaning your little one can really let their creativity go wild. However, if you could do with some inspiration for an Easter card, here are our favourite ideas for you to try out.
