Looking for at-home activities to do with the little ones during Easter? Then look no further! I made sure to include some fun indoor and outdoor ideas and activities that will make Easter Sunday EGGstra special for the whole family.
1. Make Carrot Footprints
Apply some orange paint to your children’s feet and have them step on white construction paper to create an orange footprint. Then cut around the outline of the footprint and cut up some green paper strips to tape to the back where the toes are. This will act like the leafy top of a carrot.
2. Egg and Spoon Race
First, choose how many kids are going to play. Then, place a hard-boiled egg on a metal or wooden spoon for each player. Now there are two ways to go about this egg and spoon race. The participant can either play individually, or they can race around the backyard or inside the house with another participant. The person who wins gets first dibs on the Easter candy.
3. Make an Easter Egg Piñata
Making an Easter egg piñata is easy and all kinds of fun. All you need is an inflated balloon full of confetti or some lightweight candy, a bowl full of glue and some newspaper. What you’ll do next is dip the paper in the glue and apply it to the balloon until it’s completely covered. Let it dry completely and then peel a bit of the paper and poke a hole through it to run a string through. Then tie it somewhere that’s not too high so kids can hit it with a stick until it pops.
4. Make Chocolate Nests
Grab a bowl (any size will do) and spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Then place aluminum foil on the bowl. Add some compound chocolate into a piping bag and start drizzling the bowl with swirls and squiggles. Make sure that it’s nice and thick so that it doesn’t crack when you release the chocolate from the foil. If you’re more of a visual person, then check out this YouTube video or this one. Place it in the fridge for about 15 minutes so the chocolate has time to completely harden. Lastly, gently remove the foil and just like that you’ll have your own chocolate nest.
5. Write an Easter Themed Story
Do your kids love to write? Well in that case, give them some pen and paper and ask them to write an Easter story. It can be about anything they want. If they want to make it cute and go off script a little, that’s fine. If they would rather make their Easter story scary, that’s cool, too. It’s all about having fun! If you want to make it easier for them, you can give them a few keywords they need to incorporate into their story. For example:
- Easter bunny
- Egg hunt
- Chocolate lover
- Epic Sunday
6. Make Chocolate Fondue
Buy a fondue fountain or melt some chocolate in a large pot and pour it into a bowl. Then cut up some fruits and cookies and place them around the chocolate bowl or fountain. Peeps Chicks marshmallows will also work, too. Then use a metal or wooden skewer to dip the fruit or Peeps into the chocolate and enjoy. Yum!
7. Make Easter Cards for your Loved Ones
People make Christmas cards, Valentine’s Day cards, and Birthday cards. So, who says kiddos can’t make Easter cards for their loved ones? All it takes is some imagination, some construction paper, markers, crayons, and some glitter and glue to make some unforgettable Easter cards that friends and families will love.
