Fun Ways to Celebrate Easter At Home With Kids
With social distancing measures still in play for Easter 2021, it’s time to kick the ‘Easter’ action up a notch so you can still make this holiday extra special for your kids.
Here are fun ways and ideas to celebrate Easter at home with the family!
Make a Cute and Fun Bunny Breakfast
Since breakfast fuels the beginning of a great day, why not make it memorable with fun shaped pancakes like this easy bunny! Get the recipe from Good Housekeeping.
Organize a Unique Egg Hunt at Home
There are many fun ways to organize a hunt in your home or your backyard. Stick little tickets in plastic eggs which kids can redeem for prizes. Or fill the eggs with goodies and give the kids a roadmap to find them, like a treasure hunt. The final X marks the spot for a cool Easter toy or book. And if you’re looking for more creative ways to keep the kids busy, you’ll want to check out these fun hunts:
1) This Puzzle Egg Hunt, is a no candy egg hunt. Instead, put puzzle pieces in the eggs, and when the kids find them, they can work together to piece the puzzle in exchange for a larger prize.
2) Create an outdoor Easter egg wonderland with a Tree Hunt. Hop on over to ‘Be a Fun Mum’ for the tutorial.
3) Or, make an Easter Egg Piñata. It’s a fun craft activity with a happy ending!
Watch Easter Movies Together
Make Easter Popcorn
You’ll need Easter popcorn for your movie night. Get this recipe from Two Sisters Crafting. It’s the perfect combination of sweet, salty and crunchy in a single bowl of marshmallow popcorn.
Make an Easter Charcuterie Board
If you’re celebrating on a smaller scale this year, instead of making a lavish Easter meal, try making an Easter Board instead, for the family to snack on. This set up can be just as elegant and fun. Here are some ideas on how to make sweet or savoury Easter Charcuterie Boards from Taste of Home.
Host Zoom Parties, Activities & Virtual Egg Hunts to Connect with Other Family & Friends
There are many ways to celebrate Easter online with family and friends who can’t be with you. Organize a virtual Easter egg hunt or a scavenger hunt where players search the house for clues. Scout for eggs or find Easter or Spring-themed objects. Get ideas on how to host a virtual egg hunt from Martha Stewart. Or, how about a Spring Virtual Bingo game? Crafts will also keep kids busy so set up an Easter activity for your kids to do with friends over Zoom. Once you select a craft, send the list of supplies required to everyone, and have fun creating together!
Attend an Easter Event
While most of the festivities will be limited this year, there is still some Easter fun to go around. Get the list of Events.
Read the Story of Easter (or about bunnies!)
Head to the library (or use online download services) to read your favourite Easter or Spring stories. Discover a long list of Easter-themed books for kids that are perfect for celebrating the holiday from Chapters-Indigo.
