Easter Ideas to Do with Your Kids

1. Easter Family Time

Set aside a special family time to teach your kids about Easter. Discover how it originated and the true meaning of this holiday. You can even discover how the Easter bunny came into play and learn about some of the interesting and popular traditions that many families share around the world.

2. Easter Baskets

Put together your own Easter baskets. You can buy Easter baskets already put together but it’s a lot more fun to make your own. All the kids can pitch in and help create the perfect basket for everyone in the family with contents you truly want.

3. Easter Eggs

Paint your eggs instead of dyeing them. Dyeing Easter eggs is an old tradition that’s a lot of fun but allowing your kids to paint their own pictures on them can be even more exciting. Toddlers can even get in on the action by decorating their eggs with stickers.

4. Easter Baking

Make baking together a new Easter tradition for your family. Make a cake or cookies in the shape of a bunny or Easter eggs and decorate or bake cupcakes with sprinkles on top. Get creative and come up with your own special Easter designs for your baked items.

5. Easter Egg Hunt

Take the traditional Easter egg hunt up a notch and make it more interesting with glow-in-the-dark eggs. It’s something kids of all ages will enjoy, even the teenager who thinks he’s too old for this tradition. Place glow sticks in clear plastic Easter eggs to make them glow. If you don’t expect the hunt to take too long, you can gather the family together and paint your eggs with glow-in-the-dark paint.

6. Play Easter games

For example, pin the tail on the bunny and Easter bingo are always a big hit. Have a blind taste test where the players are blindfolded and guess what type of candy or desert they are tasting. The person who gets the most right wins the game, but be sure to have a little surprise for all players. You can also play runaway egg tag, have a jelly bean race, or you can put together a scavenger hunt!

Use these ideas to create your own special Easter tradition for your family to share with future generations!

Happy Easter!
