How to Have an EGGcelent Easter With the Kids

Easter is an extremely EGGciting time for children. There’s something about a mystical bunny rabbit and boat loads of chocolate that really sets the tone for a thrilling holiday. But of course, when children grow up, they lose that relentless excitement for Easter and the bunny and, well maybe, not the chocolate. Nevertheless, it is important to ensure you make Easter as fun and memorable as possible when your children are young, because they can be memories they will cherish forever. In this article we will give you tips on how to make Easter Sunday the best Easter Sunday possible!

 

  1. Egg Hunt!!!!! (of course)
    What kind of Easter would it be without an Easter Hunt, right? A very bleak Easter indeed. Whether it’s an indoor hunt or outdoor, the Easter Egg Hunt is always a winner!
  2. Bake Easter Goodies
    Baking can be a great way to incorporate educational aspects into the day – teaching the kids how to bake. Either bake treats on Easter Sunday or bake them for Easter Sunday, whatever you choose make sure to get creative with decorations, chocolate eggs and icing!
  3. Egg Race
    There’s nothing like involving a bit of healthy competition. By decorating the hard boiled eggs with paint, glitter and decorations you can incorporate fun, competition and creativity!
  4. Visit a Pet Farm
    Now while this one is most certainly not mandatory, it can be a fun treat to take the kids to see real life rabbits and animals just for some added animal fun. If you don’t have a pet farm nearby, perhaps you have friends or know some neighbours with farm animals that wouldn’t mind a visit.
  5. Host a Picnic
    Picnics can be a really fun little activity for children, especially with the addition of yummy treats and toys! Not to mention inviting their fellow friends can be an even more exciting experience for them.
  6. Get Outdoors
    Get outdoors and fly a kite or go for a swim! Anything out of the ordinary is always exciting and different. Not to mention, if a particular place or activity is a real hit, turn it into an Easter ritual! There’s nothing like a family ritual!

 

 

Easter is a time for family, fun, surprises, yummy treats, and most of all, making it special for your children. So start planning on the little things you intend on doing or surprising your children with!
