Fun Easter Activities for Kids

This year, Easter Sunday will fall on the 20th of April and my kids are really excited about celebrating! I was looking for some Easter-themed activities that would be fun but not too messy or complicated and here’s what I found.

It’s time to plan an eventful day for the kids, so if you were looking for ideas, here are the top 5 Easter activities to keep a bunch of kids (and adults) busy and happy at home.

Making chocolate

You will need:

  • Microwave
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Molds
  • 1 packet chocolate melts
  • Spoon
  • Sticks
  • Paper napkins

Instructions:

  • Pour the chocolate melts into the bowl and follow instructions to melt.
  • Stir well.
  • Spoon the melted chocolate into the molds and add a stick.
  • Wipe off spillages for a flawless shape.
  • Let the chocolates set for a couple of hours in the fridge.

Easter egg hunt

You will need:

  • Chocolate and plastic Easter eggs
  • Bags, bowls or baskets (1 per child)

Instructions:

  • Decide the time and date.
  • Choose the location.
  • Set up the boundary.
  • Make a list of hiding locations.
  • Hide the eggs.
  • Have some prizes for everyone.

Counting eggs

You will need:

  • 4 or more players

Instructions:

  • Have all players sit in a circle.
  • Instruct them to take turns counting numbers from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
  • The player whose turn it is to call out 7 must instead say “I love Easter eggs!”
  • Players who fail to do so are out of the game.
  • The other players start over with 1, 2, 3, …
  • The game continues till all the players except one are eliminated.

Roll The Egg

You will need:

  • One hard-boiled egg per player
  • One large stick or baseball bat per player
  • Piece of chalk

Instructions:

  • Draw a start line and finish line with the chalk and instruct all players to stand behind the start line.
  • Place one egg in front of each player and hand out the sticks or bats.
  • At the word “Go,” players must push the egg with the stick until it reaches the finish line.
  • The first player to reach the finish line with an unbroken egg wins the race.

Ducks and bunnies

You will need:

  • Chalk
  • 4 or more players

Instructions:

  • Draw a start line and finish line with the chalk and instruct all players to stand behind the start line.
  • At the signal, all players must bend and hold their ankles and waddle or hop to the finish line.
  • The first player to reach the finish line WITHOUT letting go of his ankles wins the race.
