If you haven’t made one before, you can learn how to make an Easter wreath – it’s a fun craft activity and can decorate your home with some seasonal style!
Get our your glue gun and stick some painted plastic eggs to a wire or faux wreath. Then, place some stuffed bunnies so that they appear to be sitting facing each other at the bottom of the wreath. Glue them into place as well and hang the holiday decoration on your front door.
Play Some Easter Games
There are lots of fun Easter games to play together at home or outdoors, that suit all ages. The kids will love turning into hippity hoppity bunnies, or trying hard not to crack their eggs – lots of laughs are guaranteed as you enjoy some springtime fun.
One great idea is to hold a traditional egg and spoon race – with an Easter twist. Let all the race participants decorate their own hard-boiled egg with paint, glitter, stickers, etc. Then hand them all a spoon and let them race off on the predetermined course. The winner will be the one who reaches the finish line first without dropping their egg. Perhaps there’s a chocolate egg as a reward…?
