12 Easy Easter Activity Ideas for Kids
These family-friendly Easter ideas keep your little ones busy so you can put the finishing touches on the holiday feast.
Decorate an Easter Tree
Hang Easter egg ornaments on branches in a vase, a houseplant, or a tree or shrub outdoors to create an adorable decoration.
To make your own ornaments, simply hot-glue a loop of ribbon to the top of decorated Easter eggs or plastic eggs. (Psst: We’ve got 13 more fun things to do with plastic Easter eggs here.)
Handcraft a Table Cloth
Roll out some disposable craft paper on your table, and let the kids go to town! Provide non-toxic crayons, markers and colored pencils for young ones to doodle with, then use the artwork as a tablecloth for dinner (these are our favorite Easter dinner recipes).
Play Crack the Egg
To play, have each kid choose a hard-boiled egg (learn how to make them perfectly here), and hold it with the tip pointing outwards. Then, in pairs, the kids try to crack their opponent’s egg by tapping the tips against each other. Whoever’s egg cracks first has to eat the egg, and the un-cracked egg goes on to a new opponent. The last egg to survive wins.
Have little hands help out with this bright and beautiful centerpiece. Just make sure they don’t sneak too many Peeps and jelly beans while putting it together!
Have Easter Egg Races
Ask your kids to hold eggs on spoons (or check out this reusable no-break, no-waste kit) and race each other without dropping the egg. Up the fun by arranging an obstacle course in the backyard.
Host a Classic Easter Egg Hunt
Hide Easter eggs (or candy-filled plastic eggs) around your home and backyard for the kids to search for. You can even take it to the next level with these ideas for the best Easter egg hunt ever!
