Easter Activities for Kids
Looking for some cute Easter activities for kids? As hard as it may be to believe, Easter is going to be here before we know it. For many families, this is the time when all the kids get together and have a fun day of family games and crafts. Since Easter usually involves lots of children of various ages, it is important that you think ahead and have a plan together to make sure all the kids involved have fun throughout the day, and even the days prior if you want to get your own kids assisting. Below, we included some of our favorite Easter activities that are perfect for kids of all ages!
Easter Activities for Kids: Baking
For many kids, nothing is more fun than making treats in the kitchen with mom and dad, especially if they know they get to enjoy them later with family and friends. One of the most simple baking activities that kids love is being able to decorate their own cupcakes. Instead of just having kids put just icing on cupcakes, find religious themed sprinkles or even sprinkles with a fun Easter theme. As well, decorate the cupcake with fun Easter themed cupcake toppers and skirts to give them a fun and festive look before putting them in cupcake boxes. Older kids may also enjoy making their own Easter themed candy in the shape of crosses, eggs, and Easter bunnies!
Another classic Easter activity for kids is making jewelry. Since Easter is mostly a religious holiday, many families like to remind children that it is more than just looking for Easter eggs and getting a cute basket from the Easter bunny. Rather than focus on a sermon for young children, it may be more effective to tell them the story of Christ as they make cross jewelry, teaching them the importance of the cross and why many Christians wear it as jewelry. Today, you can even find many individually pre-packaged craft activities where kids can make their own religious charm bracelets or cross necklaces in their favorite style. Best of all, these crafts are very inexpensive, allowing you to purchase a variety of different jewelry craft sets for all the kids at your family Easter event.
Of course, it wouldn't be Easter without an Easter egg hunt, and outdoor Easter games. Kids love being able to color their own eggs and then find them later. Older kids are even more motivated if they know there are plastic eggs hiding somewhere with little treats or money. What many people don't think about, however, are what games they are going to play after the Easter egg hunt. Many kids enjoy all types of field day games, including potato sack hops and even ring tosses. To make things even more fun for kids, have games that the whole family can play together, allowing everyone to play outdoors together. With the right planning, it's easy to make Easter fun for everyone!
