By Melissa Brodsky
Many families dye eggs as part of their Easter celebrations, a tried-and-true event that many kids look forward to year after year. However, there are many other fun things to try with your kids this Easter. Here are some good craft ideas to get you started:
- Make cotton ball bunnies. They are adorable and easy.
- Make a cone cup bunny. Use it to decorate your table for Easter Sunday dinner.
- Have fun creating these adorable egg chickens. Create a whole family of cute creatures to brighten up the day.
- Get crafty with this Easter bunny photo frame. Then just add a cute photo of your child.
- Got socks? Make Easter bunny sock puppets. What’s next? An Easter bunny puppet show!
Make it an Easter to remember with some fun holiday activities for the kids. Here are some old favorites and a few new options to try:
- Decorate boiled eggs in bright colors and fun patterns. Easter doesn’t really feel complete without this old standby.
- Plan an Easter egg hunt. Hide colorful eggs in your own backyard.
- Play Bunny Bingo. Print a bingo card for each of your kids.
- Have an Easter bunny race! Find out which bunny is the fastest.
- Set up an egg relay race. This one gets the kids up and moving.
All that activity works up an appetite, so you’ll want to whip up some of the following Easter treats — after all, you can only eat so many boiled eggs, no matter how beautifully decorated they may be.
- Easy Easter Bunny Bites: They are almost too cute to eat — almost.
- Bunny Puffs: Yummy rolls and chocolate? Enough said.
- Carrot Patch Pudding Cups: They’re not only tasty, but also easy for little hands to make.
- Bunny and Chick Cookies: Delicious pink, purple and yellow cookie treats. Bet you can’t eat just one!
- Easter Bunny Treats: Like Rice Krispies? Use them to make these cute bunny faces. They’re as much fun to decorate as they are to eat.
