Typical Easter activities such as Easter brunch and Easter egg hunt come every year when it’s Easter. But of course, Easter should not be celebrated every year. There are so many fun ideas for Easter activities! Between Easter brunch and the egg hunt, keep the little ones entertained with one of the fun Easter games and other Easter activities for kids.
Some of these Easter games are a great way to keep sugar levels high after all the chocolate eggs and candy rolls. Other Easter activities are fun for the whole family and a great way to bond and create special Easter memories together.
So, if you’re still wondering “what to do with Easter,” check out our list of fun Easter activities.
1. Egg Race
This is a beautiful old game that is perfect for Easter celebrations. The best part is playing this activity with a larger group. Get grandparents, sons and daughters and divide the group into two parts. All you need now are eggs (well boiled, unless you don’t mind a mess) and a spoon for each participant. When you split the group into two, you can play the egg race in relay style. The first person to return all eggs safely wins this Easter activity.
2. Decorate the Easter branches
This is the perfect activity for kids who want to get away from all the Easter crowd! Decorate the branches with spring and Easter decorations. Good preparation is half the work. Therefore, order the decoration in advance, Look at HEMA (Like a wooden tree, it’s still good to put out after Easter) or Xenos† There you can order affordable Easter decorations for Easter branches.
3. Guess Jelly Bean
This is a simple indoor game for all ages! Simply fill a jar with Jelly Beans and ask each family member to guess how many candies are in the jar. The winner (closest to him) wins the pot! You can also play another game with Jelly Beans, “Guess the bait”. It’s also a great Easter activity, especially when buying a variant that also has bad tastes. like this.
4. Reverse Easter Egg Hunt
Have you ever heard of a reverse Easter egg hunt? me too. But this Easter activity sounds exciting. It’s actually quite simple, you don’t let the Easter bunny hide the eggs, but the kids themselves! And the Easter bunny can go look for eggs.
5. Read out loud
What could be nicer than sitting on the sofa together and reading to them. Even though the kids are a little older, reading is still fun. For the Easter party, you will of course find a nice Easter or Spring book to read out loud. Here are some recommendations.
6. Gardening together
Easter symbolizes rebirth, so what better day to plant tulips or daffodils in the garden? Well, technically, it might not be the best season to grow bulbs. But you can plant them indoors at any time of the year, or buy already blooming flowers and plant them in the garden at Easter. An Easter activity that makes you happy, right?
7. Active egg hunt
You can, of course, hide the eggs and let the children search for them, and this is also more than enough for young children. But you can also turn it into an active egg hunt. This makes this Easter activity more challenging for older children. For example, make it a race to see who will find the most Easter eggs within a minute. Or make it a picture hunt, give the kids some detailed pictures, which serve as a hint where to look for them.
We made a great printable version of this egg hunt. You can find it in the Easter Games Pack download.
8. Brunch together
And I mean you also get the kids involved in making Easter breakfast and lunch. For example, let the children make dessert or bake the well-known braided bread. You can also turn your Easter brunch (or breakfast) into a complete party with these fun Easter recipes.
9. Bunny Dance Party
Throw a dance party. Whether you are with many or just with your family, nothing beats dancing together. Create a playlist of everyone’s favorite songs and everyone can show off their best moves. And if you really want to record that famous bunny dance? Well, this tutorial will show you how to do The Bunny Hop. This is the original Easter activity!
10. Chocolate Fondue
Don’t you want the kids (and yourself) to eat Easter eggs randomly? But then the chocolate fondue! Or melt a giant chocolate Easter bunny and let your chicks dip some strawberries, grapes, or apple slices into it. This way they also get something healthy.
11. Easter crafts
Crafting is a fun activity but also a functional Easter activity. Use the kids to make a cute Easter table decoration, you know the well-known egg cups from toilet roll. Or make bunny ears and creative Easter hats together for all the guests to wear during the Easter party! Check out all the craft ideas for Easter.
12. Obstacle course
Being active is always good for kids. And sometimes the activity becomes even more fun when you add a competitive element. Set up a simple obstacle course in the backyard or even the living room and give it a fun Easter look. Lots of jumping, spatula laying, egg throwing and poaching, and maybe even some bowling of hard-boiled eggs to drop a skittle.
13. Give a gift basket
Teach children that “giving” can bring you a lot. Easter, of course, isn’t all about chocolate eggs and doing as many Easter activities as possible. So make a gift basket together for an elderly neighbor or perhaps a sick family member. And surprise them during Easter with a gift basket. Get creative with the contents of the basket, but above all make it a fun and educational Easter activity.
14. Play Easter Egg Lay
If your kids have enough energy to burn, this is the game for them! As you’ve probably guessed, this is the Easter variation on the classic “laying a napkin”. Here’s how to play
Children sit in a circle with their faces inward. One of the players exits the circle with an Easter egg. Everyone in a circle closes their eyes and sings the song “Lay a handkerchief” (the word for handkerchief has been replaced by an Easter egg). The kid walking around the circle lays an Easter egg somewhere. At the end of the song, everyone opens their eyes and feels if an Easter egg is behind their back. Whoever finds the Easter egg is standing and now has to try to tap the child before he sits on the empty space.
15. Throwing eggs
Finally, I have a simple yet fun Easter activity for you. You will need plastic Easter eggs and a basket. If you’re in a crazy mood, get real eggs, but I can’t recommend it. Draw a line on the ground. All children must stand behind this line. Draw another line a short distance away and place the basket next to that line. Give each child five eggs. The children take turns throwing their eggs in the direction of the basket. The child who succeeds in throwing the most eggs into the basket wins.
