In addition to enjoying an Easter feast with your family and friends, push yourself back from the table and have some fitness fun. From taking a power walk to catch up with Easter guests you don't see often enough to jumping like a bunny with the kids, here are some healthy Easter activities to help you burn off some of those holiday calories.

Take a walk

Holidays are always a fun time to catch up with loved ones. Instead of vegging on the couch, rally a few of your Easter guests to go for a power walk to chat and get some fresh air.

Brisk walking can burn 175 calories per half-hour.

Hop like a bunny

Get the kids in on the Easter activities by challenging them to jump like a bunny. If you have jump ropes, have a jump rope contest to see who can jump the longest.

A mere 10 minutes of jump rope can torch 110 calories.

Hide and seek

In addition to hiding eggs in the yard, play hide and seek with the whole family. Make a rule that everyone has to walk fast or run to their hiding places and the seeker has to run to find everyone -- every family member should get a turn to be seeker. Calories burned for this activity will vary.

Badminton

Set up a net for badminton and bat the birdie around until dinner is ready. Singles badminton will be more challenging than doubles badminton.

Thirty minutes of badminton can burn 150 calories.

Toss a frisbee

Frisbee is another family-friendly game for the Easter afternoon. Not only does it get your heart rate up, it also improves your hand-eye coordination.

A leisure time throwing a frisbee will burn about 100 calories per half-hour.
