Let the Good Times Hatch!!!! 6 Creative Easter Holiday Activities

Story by Linsey

Easter holiday activities present an opportunity to create lasting memories with your kids. All you need are a few boiled eggs, some paint, and a little creativity! Here’s a list of fun and nostalgic Easter activities to get you started:

1. The Great Easter Egg Roll

Decorate hard-boiled eggs with vibrant paints, stickers, and glitter – get creative! Then gather your little bunnies (and their friends!) and head to a local park with a gentle slope.

Tip: If you want to keep your egg-cellent creations for prosperity, try using wooden or plastic eggs instead of traditional ones.

Once your eggs are ready, gather everyone at the top of the hill and explain the rules – the first egg to reach the bottom wins! You can award small prizes for the winners or simply enjoy the fun and camaraderie.

2. Easter Egg Hunt

There’s nothing more classic than an Easter egg hunt!  Hide in plants, behind curtains or even where you keep eggs! You can also create scavenger hunts with little written clues or charades to find the prize chocolate.

Tip: Have some fun with some glued on googly eyes or paper strip whiskers.

Fill the children’s baskets with homemade treats, small toys, and fun trinkets. This activity not only keeps them entertained but also encourages their creativity and allows them to make something special.

3. Easter Bunny Pancakes & Carrot Cake Muffins

Turn your kitchen into a wonderland of fun with Easter-themed treats! Whip up a batch of bunny-shaped pancakes with a simple cookie cutter. Get creative by adding food coloring to the batter or using fruit slices for eyes and noses.

Recipe Inspiration: A quick online search will reveal numerous fun and easy recipes for Easter-themed pancakes. Look for options that suit your children’s preferences and cooking skills.

For a healthy twist, try making adorable carrot cake muffins. Kids can help with grating the carrots, mixing the batter, and even lining the muffin tins. Decorate the finished muffins with cream cheese frosting and colorful sprinkles for an extra festive touch.

Tip: Involve your children in the cooking process as much as possible, even if it means a bit of extra mess. It’s a fantastic way to teach them about following instructions, measuring ingredients, and the joy of creating something delicious together.

4. Egg-cellent Storytelling

Gather around and weave your own Improv-style Easter story! Start with a simple prompt, like “The Easter Bunny was feeling lost…” and take turns adding sentences to the story. Encourage silly twists, unexpected turns, and creative solutions to the Easter Bunny’s predicament.

Tip: You can even turn this into a drawing activity. Each child can draw a picture based on a specific part of the story, creating a collaborative and unique Easter narrative.

This activity sparks imagination, promotes teamwork, and creates a memory that your family can cherish for years to come.

5. Plant a Seed

Celebrate new beginnings and connect with nature by planting an Easter garden together. Choose a sunny spot in your backyard or on your balcony and gather pots, soil, seeds like carrots, lettuce, or herbs, and small gardening tools.

Tip: Get age-appropriate gloves for the kids to wear while planting and watering the seeds.

Let your children help with planting the seeds, watering the soil, and observing the growth of their very own Easter garden. This activity teaches children about responsibility, the importance of caring for the environment, and the joy of witnessing nature unfold.

6. The Big Easter Holiday Parade: Dress Up & Celebrate!

End your Easter festivities on a high note with a fun-filled parade. Encourage everyone to dress up in their most creative Easter costumes – think bunny ears, colourful clothes, or even DIY carrot costumes!

Tip: If you have a local park or community centre nearby, check if any organised Easter parades are taking place. This can add a social element to the activity and allow your children to interact with other kids.

March around your neighbourhood, play some upbeat music, and let loose! This is a chance to embrace the spirit of community, celebrate the holiday season, and create lasting memories with your family.
