Are you looking for some fun Easter activities for your kids this year? There are so many ideas on pinterest that it is overwhelming to sort through them all and decide which ones would be the easiest and most fun for you kids. Well, you have come to the right spot! I’ve been mulling it over for quite awhile now thinking about what my top favorite activities would be, if was going to pick some for my kids.
I want them to have fun and enjoy the season. I don’t want to spend a lot of money. I do want them to get to try some new ideas and crafts. So based on these criteria, I have selected what I think are the Top Easter Activities for Kids.

This is a great way to use up all those pesky broken bits and pieces of old crayons, don’t throw them out, recycle them into Easter bunny rainbow crayons. You will need a silicone bunny mould + old crayon pieces (or new crayons snapped into small pieces). Fill the moulds and bake in the oven to create cute little rainbow bunny crayons the kids will love.
Egg Art Print
This really cute egg art was found on Julep and is actually surprisingly simple to make. All you need to do is cut coloured paper into strips and then glue it in lines onto an egg shape and finish with another cut out egg shape over the top to create a professional finish.
Easter Egg Hunt
Easter egg hunt in the garden (or indoors). If you don’t want the kids to have too much chocolate, choose mini foil-covered eggs, painted hard-boiled painted eggs, or plastic eggs filled with alternative treats. You can get as creative as you like and add clues or activities as part of the trail. Older children might also enjoy the challenge of planning an Easter egg hunt for family and friends.
One of the highlights of Easter for me as a child was attending the Easter bonnet parade at school. But who says you have to wait for a parade, you can make your own at home just for fun. You will need scissors, glue, cardboard and then any decorative items you choose (think feathers, glitter, eggs). The possibilities are endless.
A really simple craft activity for toddlers through to older kids is to make carrot footprints. Simply paint your child’s feet orange and get them to create a footprint painting, then cut it out to make the body of the carrot. To finish off cut up green paper or cardboard into strips and tape to the back of the footprint at the toe end to create the leafy carrot.
