With spring being around the corner, it is finally time to get out of those oversized coats and jackets and head out for a picnic in the park, enjoy the fresh breeze, watch the flowers bloom, and cherish that extra hour of evening sunshine.
Spring also comes with a widely celebrated family holiday, Easter, which means it is time to plan some fun Easter activities. These could range from filling Easter baskets with goodies, painting Easter eggs, to having a spoon and egg race, and munching on a lot of chocolate bunnies.
If you have kids at home, coming up with Easter activities can be slightly tricky, especially if your kids are bored of doing the same activities or if you are on a budget. But worry not – from baking to watching some fun Easter movies, we have compiled a list of fun activities you can do with the kids to make this Easter more wholesome.
Have Your Own Easter Egg Hunt
We all loved hunting for Easter eggs when we were kids. It is the one Easter tradition that no one ever gets bored of. Turn it into a scavenger hunt and give the kids some clues to find their Easter chocolate eggs. Give them a list of all the different eggs they can find around the house and make it more interesting, add a few things to that list as well. Set a timer and see who collects the most eggs and things in due time.
Bake Easter Goodies
Easter is not complete without baking and munching on some delicious baked goodies. It will not only let kids have a whale of a time trying out their treats, but it will also help them learn new cooking skills. To make things more interesting, hold a bake-off with the kids. See who makes and decorates the best Easter goodies. You can even host a bake sale and make your kids sell their baked goods around the neighborhood.
Have an Easter Movie Marathon
There are plenty of Easter movies that you can enjoy watching with the kids this Easter holiday like Miss Potter and Peter Rabbit. Subscribe to a TV and internet bundle to get access to a reliable internet connection and a variety of TV networks so you can watch your favorite Easter movies on a streaming platform or TV channel.
Paint and Decorate the Easter Eggs
This is another traditional Easter day activity that never gets old. Get a few cartons of eggs from the grocery store and have fun painting and decorating them with the kids. Make sure you hard-boil the eggs to avoid any mess caused by broken raw eggs. Cool the eggs down in cold water and lay out some old newspapers in the area where you and the kids will paint the eggs. Gather all the things you’ll need in that area and then just simply get on with it and start painting and decorating the eggs.
Make Easter Bunnies
If you want your kids to indulge in an artsy activity, make some Easter bunnies with them using empty toilet paper rolls. You would need some googly eyes, white and brown paint, mini pom-poms, colored card paper, and colored pipe cleaners. Get all the stuff together and get started straight away. Make a bunch of cute Easter bunnies with the kids and place them around the house as Easter decorations.
Easter, being the first holiday of springtime, is one of the most joyous and pleasant holidays, and with the above-mentioned activities, you can keep the fun going long after everyone has opened their Easter baskets. You can also practice some of your own old family Easter activities to keep the kids entertained this Easter holiday.
