HAVING FUN WITH KIDS EASTER ACTIVITIES

One of the best things about holidays is the enthusiasm that kids have. This enthusiasm offers many opportunities for kids to learn while they have fun. There are many kids’ Easter activities that are more than just fun and games. They are also opportunities to learn and develop skills and creativity.

There are some great outdoor Easter activities for kids that just need you to add an egg or two and you can have egg and spoon races, egg throwing competitions, egg hunts and egg relays. For the egg and spoon races have the kids race as they carry an egg on a spoon. To make the races even more interesting create an obstacle course that requires them to go up, down, in, out, through and around different obstacles. If they can’t all race at once, time each person individually to see how long it takes them to complete the course.

The egg throwing competition can be done in pairs. Give each pair an egg and stand them a short distance apart. Partners have to throw and catch between them. Any pair that drops an egg is eliminated. The partners then move one step further apart and repeat. See how far apart the winning pair can be stand while still throwing and catching.

Of course egg hunts are a big favorite at Easter. Hide real eggs or Easter eggs for children to find. A wonderful kids’ Easter activity is to turn an egg hunt into a treasure hunt with clues leading them from place to place. The final clue can lead to the ‘treasure’ which can be prizes or Easter eggs and candy.

Relays can also be played with eggs. Convert an egg and spoon race to a relay and you have a fun and active Easter activity. Be creative and you will come up with other ways to incorporate eggs into relay races.

But Easter fun doesn’t have to stop outdoors. There are also loads of great kids’ Easter activities that can be done indoors. Easter crafts can include making Easter wreaths, Easter cards, Easter baskets and decorating eggs or dyeing eggs.

Easter games are also a great kids’ Easter activity for the indoors. Make your own Easter board games, Easter bingo games or play a few Easter word games. To make your own Easter 2022 board games, you need some card and colored pens and a bit of imagination. Make a ‘Snakes and Ladders’ style game but use ‘Bunnies and Eggs’ instead. Your board game could also be a track style game that races bunnies around a board from the start to the finish. Add a few ‘hazard squares’ and ‘reward squares’ to the board and then just roll the dice to see how far to move on each turn and race each other to the finish.

You can also make Bingo cards that are filled with Easter words and then play Easter Bingo. You might also like to try a Easter version of the game ‘Hangman’ for a word game. Another great word game is to use a word like ‘chocolate’ and then compete to see who can make the most words using the letters in the word ‘chocolate’. This is a simple Easter activity to organize and it will also get kids really thinking. It doesn’t matter whether you are indoors or outdoors, there are loads of fun kids’ Easter activities that you can do with the kids. Just use your imagination and the possibilities are endless!
