Happy Easter! We have put together a list of fun activities your kids can play on Easter! Enjoy!
1. Easter egg scavenger hunt
Keep kids busy by sending them on a scavenger hunt for Easter eggs, bunnies and other traditional Easter symbols. Motivate them with a chocolate prize for finding all the items. Give them clues that they have to figure out to find the different things.
2. Bunny race
Another activity that will keep children active and happy is a bunny race. Give them potato sacks and let them have fun running from one end to the other. You can make the race more challenging by having them collect items and put them in their sack as they run towards the finishing line. Smaller kids can use pillow slips if the bags are too big for them.
3. Easter bingo
This is a fun game with the right theme that you can quickly set up so you can get on with other things. All you have to do is download the free printable on your computer then set up the game for endless fun for the young ones.
4. Easter necklace
Kids will be occupied for hours making Easter necklaces. Set them up with beads, plastic bunnies, plastic eggs, jelly beans and other items and a length of a string. They will have fun creating necklaces with different items of different colors and designs.
5. Easter bunny masks
The Easter bunny is another important symbol. Cut paperboard into circular or oval shapes with rabbit ears at the top. Then, punch two holes on the sides then tie a rubber band over the two holes to make a face mask that will stay in place. Lay out paints, brushes, markers and crayons and let the kids enjoy decorating their masks.
6. Easter bowling
Bowling balls are heavy, so most kids are left out of bowling fun. However, there is a way to make it into one of their Easter party activities. Make Easter bunny bowling pins by printing and cutting out and taping an Easter bunny printable onto half a dozen empty 2-liter soda bottles. Set up the pins on one end of the room or garden. Have the first player stand back a distance of six feet back from a marked spot. The player should then use a ball to try and knock down the six pins. Let every child take a turn. Keeping score is optional.
7. Bunny hop
Let the fun go on with the bunny hop. Divide the kids into two teams and give each team a pillow. Smaller children can use a sofa cushion. Have a child from each team put a pillow between their legs and hop from one end of the room or garden to the other. If the child gets across without dropping the pillow, it’s a win for the team. If they drop it, they sit down, and a child from the other team gets a go. The team that gets across most times without dropping their pillow wins.
8. Pass the egg
It is best to use a plastic egg for this one, or there will be a lot of waste and a large mess to clean up afterward. Have all the kids sit down in a circle. Then, put a plastic egg on the feet of one and have them pass it on to the next child only with feet. Drop the egg and you are left of the circle.
