6 Fun things to do on Easter
Easter is a holiday that is celebrated with a lot of fervor and excitement. With the arrival of Spring, there are a host of fun activities that can be done on this day.
If you still don’t know what to do with kids on Easter, here are a few activities to spark things up:
1. Easter egg hunting – An all-time classic
Easter egg hunting is a beloved tradition that’s been enjoyed for many decades, and it’s one of the most popular outdoor Easter activities. It’s a fun-filled activity where children (and even adults!) search for Easter eggs that have been hidden in various places. These eggs could be made from chocolate, plastic, or even include some toys inside.
To start, choose a location that allows for easy hiding and searching of eggs. Make sure to have enough eggs for everyone participating, and consider adding different colors or patterns to make the hunt more exciting. Lastly, create clues or riddles to guide your children to hidden eggs or even a grand prize at the end of the hunt.
Give them a basket or a place where to put the eggs, and you’re ready to go!
2. Bake Easter-themed desserts
Easter is a time for chocolate bunnies, pastel colors, and fun decorations. If you're looking for an activity to do with your kids this holiday season, creating Easter-themed desserts is a great way to bond and have fun in the kitchen. One classic dessert that never goes out of style is Easter sugar cookies. You can use cookie cutters shaped like eggs or bunnies, and decorate them with icing, sprinkles, or candy.
Another fun option is to make cake pops that look like Easter eggs. Simply mix cake crumbs with frosting, shape them into egg shapes, and dip in melted chocolate. Decorate with food coloring and sprinkles and serve as a sweet treat or as a fun Easter basket filler. The possibilities for Easter-themed desserts are endless, so don't hesitate to get creative and have fun with your kids this holiday season!
