Fun For The Whole Family
Getting the whole family together for Easter or having friends over for an Easter celebration can involve more than the traditional Easter egg hunt. To keep kids and adults occupied and jazz up your celebration, try these fun activities for all ages.
Easter activity #1: Decorate Easter cookies
Make one to two dozen sugar cookies and set up an Easter decorating area with frosting, sprinkles and other toppings for the cookies. You can also use ice cream instead of cookies and have the family make their own ice cream sundaes with their favorite toppings.
Easter activity #2: Bunny making contest
Provide construction paper, cotton balls, glue, markers, glitter, scissors, ribbon and other arts and crafts supplies. Let the kids cut out and decorate their own Easter bunnies. Hang up the creations and have someone judge the most creative and give out a prize.
Easter activity #3: Broken egg riddles
Cut out large Easter eggs out of construction paper. Write a riddle on the top and the answer on the bottom of the eggs and then cut them in half. Mix them up and hand out one egg halve to each person. Then each person walks around talking to the others while trying to find the right riddle and answer combination and sits down when they find their match. The first pair to sit down wins.
