Awesome selection of easy Easter activities for kids that can be done at home. These activities include indoor and outdoor fun, printables, games and edible treats to make. From traditional Easter activities to some that you might not have thought of. There is fun for the toddlers and the older kids.
This year Easter is not going to look like it has done in the past. There will not be any large family functions. There will not be any parties with friends and there will not be any holidays.
That doesn’t mean however that we cant still have an enjoyable Easter with our immediate family. You might be wondering what you can do at home for Easter, but really there are lots of options. We just need to be a little bit more creative than we normally would.
So how do you make Easter fun?
Well one of the easiest ways is to find something new that the kids have never done before.
The new idea doesn’t have to be a big thing either. My kids get excited about having dinner as a picnic on the lawn instead of the dinner table. Or having an obstacle course build for them in the yard with their outdoor toys.
Kids love anything that is slightly outside of their normal routine.
Take a look at this selection of Easter activities for kids. There are plenty of ideas here that will keep the kids occupied for the duration of Easter and also activities for children of different ages.
These activities will make their Easter fun and if they are having fun, YOU will have fun too.
Enjoy, and be sure to let me know at the end of the post which one you loved the most!
