As Easter Sunday draws nearer, families across the globe are preparing to celebrate this fun and lively holiday. Your passion for 3D printing can come in very handy when you want to wow your kids and other family members this Easter, but what should you be printing?
Let’s take a look at some of this year’s best 3D printable Easter 3D models and STL files from websites like Thingiverse. All of these files are easy to print and most can be printed on relatively small 3D printers.
3D Printable Easter Eggs
When most people think about Easter, eggs will be one of the first things that come to mind. Easter eggs don’t have to be made from chocolate, and we think that you’ll agree that the 3D printable Easter eggs we have chosen will be more than enough to put a smile on your children’s faces.
1) Varied Easter Egg Collection by Antonin_Nosek
This collection of patterned eggs is a great place to start when you are looking for Easter Inspiration. These eggs would make great decorations, while also offering a safe and hygienic option for Easter egg hunts, all with the option to print each egg in its own bright and vibrant color. These eggs are very easy to print without support materials, and they can even be printed hollow to make the prints faster.
2) Surprise Egg #1 – Tiny Haul Truck by Agepbiz
Unlike any Easter egg you will have ever seen, this next option comes with a cute little surprise inside it. The example we have linked contains a tiny haul truck, but there are variations of this egg with different types of machinery inside. This makes a cute and quirky joke gift for Easter, but you will need to work hard to get the right 3D printer settings to achieve the same results as the images.
3) Hollow Easter Egg Container by Jooxoe3i
Perfect to be filled with candy, toys, and other exciting Easter gifts, this hollow Easter egg STL file is an egg hunt organizer’s dream come true.

You can print these egg containers as a single piece without the need for any additional materials, though you may need to use supports on the inside.
Easter Egg Basket 3D Prints
No Easter egg hunt would be complete without a basket for your little ones to store their haul. These prints are easiest with a large print bed, though you can split them into parts if you need to.
4) Simple Easter Egg Basket by Spencer
This first Easter egg basket is simple, easy to print, and well-designed, offering a strong and durable container that will be great for any egg hunt.

You may also need to consider adding supports for the handle during printing.
5) 3D Printed Easter Basket by OpenScadDad
Offering a different way to print your basket, this flat-pack option is good for anyone who isn’t confident with printing tall objects. The whole basket prints flat, but this means that you need to use glue or epoxy to secure the basket rings and handle in place once it has finished printing. You can find a handy video on the Thingiverse page to help you to build it.
6) Makersome’s Easter Basket by Makersome
The final Easter egg basket on our list is another easy one to print. With a detachable handle that is able to pivot on hinges, this basket will be able to withstand all the abuse your kids can throw at it.
