It’s almost time to break out the Easter baskets and bonnets, as Peter Cottontail will soon be making his arrival! If you’re looking to make Easter a little more special for your kids this year, we have some fabulous crafts and games that are sure to please this Easter!
Dyeing Easter eggs is a favorite tradition of many families, but how about putting a new spin on it this year? We love the idea of using chalkboard paint on Easter eggs (thanks, Pinterest!). What a fun way to decorate your eggs! You can even personalize it with a note for each kid!
Here’s another fun way to color Easter eggs that’s super easy – mix shaving cream and food coloring together, and then roll your eggs in the mixture. Let them sit, wipe them off, and you’ve got tie-dye Easter eggs!
Below are a few cute craft ideas that would be great Easter fun and can be used for décor, too! How adorable is this little Easter chick?! For this craft, you’ll need Styrofoam balls, yellow tissue paper, orange pipe cleaners, glue, and googley eyes.
These felt bunny puppets would be fun craft for your little ones to make and play with.
Easter baskets are a must for egg hunts and for receiving Easter treats. Store-bought baskets are great, but why not help your kids make their own Easter baskets? Here’s a wonderful idea – paint a large coffee canister white, and then add ears, whiskers, and pom-poms to make a sweet bunny face.
You’ll need to keep the kids occupied while hiding Easter eggs for your egg hunt. Plan a few fun games to keep the fun going and keep them distracted while you hide the eggs. Divide the kids into two or three teams and have an Egg Relay Race.
Egg Bocce is another creative idea we came across on Martha Stewart’s website. It’s a neat holiday spin on a classic Italian lawn game.
Of course, Easter’s not complete without some special treats and surprises from Peter Cottontail! Now that the weather’s starting to get pleasant, your family will likely be spending more time outdoors. Easter is the perfect time to surprise your kids with a cool new pair of Real Kids Shades.
