Building a crazy golf course in your own home is an easy and fun way to keep the kids entertained during the Easter holidays without spending a penny.

Instead of heading out to the zoo this Easter let your kids get a dose of  wildlife-themed fun at home with crafts that won't cost a thing. There are lots of ways to create something special and unique while teaching your kids about wildlife.
