Easter is approaching! And we are hopping on the bandwagon as Easter falls on Sunday 17th April this year. Since its origins, Easter has been a time of celebration and feasting and many traditional Easter games and customs developed, such as egg rolling, egg tapping, blowing and egg decorating. With kids at home, you’ll want to find some fun activities for them to do over the Easter break. We have listed a few egg-cellent ideas for the Easter break that are fun to do with the kids and adults may also enjoy as well!
1. Easter Egg Charades
One way to get the whole family involved is to engage in a game of charades. Put the prompts in Easter eggs and have each person act out the word or phrase. Just remember to keep it simple for the little ones using prompts like Bunny, duckling, carrots, chick, and Easter egg hunt are just a few of the words and phrases that you can act out!
2. Easter Bingo
Who doesn’t love a game of bingo? There are tons of free printable Easter bingo cards that you can find online and players can use some delicious jelly beans and other sweet Easter goodies to mark the squares that they get throughout the game. Finally, have an array of prizes that young children, older kids, and adults will all appreciate!
3. Paper Plate Easter Chick
Step 1. Start by covering your working surface with an old table cloth or some newspaper.
Step 2. Set out a paper plate and have your toddler paint it with yellow paint.
Step 3. Let the plates dry for a little while (this may take longer depending on the amount of finger paint your toddler used).
Step 4. Cut some triangles out of orange construction paper to make the beaks of the chicks.
Step 5. Invite your toddler to glue some feathers, beaks and googly eyes to the plates.
And that’s it! The most adorable chick’s a toddler can make are ready. These are seriously easy to make and they are perfect for decorating for Easter!
