Easter is less than a month away and the good ole Easter bunny is sure to be hopping down your sidewalk here soon. I’m a huge fan of all things Easter. I love the sense of rebirth around this time of year and I love to admire the gorgeous flowers as they “pop up” all over the place. This Easter, I get to host the big brunch, and that means I’m in charge of the food AND the activities. Keep reading below to see what Easter activities for kids I have planned for this fun Spring holiday.
Easter Activities For Kids
Dyeing Easter Eggs
Though the children of my family might tackle this craft project the night before our Easter brunch, it’s still fun to do! Whip out the classic vinegar and egg-dye filled cups and get to work. Don’t forget to pick up plenty of white crayons for cool doodles! Encourage your kids to mix the colors and experiment with patterns. It really is fun to see what everyone comes up with.
Print out sheets like these (from Free N Fun Easter) and let party guests young and old get to work! You could even throw together a little coloring contest, where the best-colored page gets a special treat. Make sure you’re equipped with plenty of coloring utensils…fights really can break out over the pink!!
Easter Book Read Aloud
Before you send the kids off to participate in the Easter egg hunt, read a classic Easter story like The Country Bunny or Happy Easter, Mouse (these were my favorite as a kid). It’ll be like when you read The Night Before Christmas, but for Easter, instead.
Egg And Spoon Race
Ah, a classic party game that is oddly appropriate for the holiday! This is one of my favorite Easter activities for kids because you already have everything needed. Make it extra special by having your guests compete using your dyed eggs for Easter.
Plant A Flower For Spring
Now, now, I’m not telling anyone to dirty their Sunday best, but I do like to have my kids plant a flower every Easter. They think it’s so fun to watch them grow, and I like the cute little reminder of their handiwork all season long. Make it easier for party guests by pre-digging the holes beforehand for less mess. That way the kids just have to plop their flower in! May as well put your party guests to work landscaping, right? 😉
