Easter Cards

Give each child a blank card and some colorful markers or crayons, and let them get creative!

Easter is such a fun time of year, and creating unique cards can be a great way for children to get creative and really showcase their personalities.

Not only is it a great way to bond with your kids and get creative together, but the finished products will also make your loved ones feel extra special this Easter season.

Easter Egg Hunt

Hide eggs around the yard or house filled with treats, and have the kids search for them.

There’s nothing quite like watching your little ones excitedly search for hidden treasures around the house or yard. This year, it’s all about keeping things simple yet fun, and an Easter egg hunt is a sure bet.

Hide colorful plastic eggs filled with yummy treats in unexpected places and watch their eyes light up as they find them. The anticipation and thrill of the hunt is a memory that they will carry with them for years to come.

Some of the things that we have put in our egg hunt eggs over the years include animal crackers, jelly beans, Starbursts, coins, and Goldfish crackers.

Egg Decorating

Grab some hard-boiled eggs, paint, dye, and other craft materials to create some colorful Easter eggs!

When it comes to decorating eggs, you can let your imagination run wild with different patterns and colors or even add fun embellishments, like stickers or glitter.

And the best part? Egg decorating is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy together. We snap pictures of our egg-dying antics every year, and they always make us smile!
