5 Easter Activities for Kids

Easter Activities for Kids That You’ll Enjoy Too

Chalkboard Egg Hunting Pails
Metal bucket
Chalkboard paint

Instructions: Paint the metal pails with the paint. Allow to dry completely. Have kids glue the embellishments they like on it, then allow them to draw as they see fit with the chalk.

Jellybean Seeds
Jelly Beans
Small plastic shovel

Instructions: Have kids dig small, shallow holes and plant the jellybeans inside them like seeds. Cover the holes and lightly sprinkle with water. When they go to bed at night, replace the beans with the suckers. When kids wake up, tell them their jellybeans grew into the suckers.

Handprint Easter Card
A pen
A hand

Instructions: Dip you child’s hand into the paint and have them make bunny ears with their fingers. Press this to the cardboard and allow to dry. Have your child decorate the bunny’s face with the pen or markers and give them ribbon, buttons, bows and other embellishments to make the card really pop. Add a personalized message to each card and give as an Easter gift.

Easter Eggshell Vase
Small vase
Hard boiled and dyed eggs
Craft glue
Decoupage spray glue

Instructions: After the eggs have been boiled, dyed, cooled, and dried, you should remove the shell (eat the eggs!) and crunch it into medium sized pieces. You can even use scissors to cut it to the pieces you like. Use craft glue to attach the pieces to the vase in any shape or design you prefer and then spray the whole thing with decoupage glue to hold it in place.

Easter Bunny Photo Frame
Mini photo frame in white, black, or brown
Craft foam or felt
Craft glue
A full-face photo of your little one

Instructions: Ears: Cut a square of felt, fold it in half and cut 2 ear shapes at the same time. Do the same, but smaller, (but for the pink inner-ear part. Glue to the back of the frame, pink part facing the front, to make the frame have ears.

Nose: Cut a small triangle shape of felt to glue the three pom-poms on. Cut a square for the teeth and glue to the bottom of the frame. Glue the pom-pom triangle to the frame, but not on the space where the picture goes. It can, however, peek up into that space so your child’s photo will have a bunny face.
