Fun Easter Activities for Kids
One of my goals of this site is to share simple ways to make family time meaningful and special.
Our children feed off our energy and if we are stressed and overwhelmed they will notice.
At the same time, if you are relaxed and joyful they will notice that too.
And today we’re talking about Easter.
As an elementary school teacher, and mom I feel like I have a pretty good touch on the pulse of what kids love.
At the same time, I have a keen eye for activities and crafts that are low-prep and don’t make a huge mess….sound good?
Below you will find easy and fun Easter activities to do at home this year including crafts, snacks and games that your kids will love!
Although things are starting to get back to normal in parts of our country, many of us will be sticking close to home for our Easter celebrations.
The good thing about Easter is that I feel like this isn’t such a huge change. I know that for us Easter has traditionally been a holiday that we celebrate at home and don’t typically not a time when we gather with extended family.
That being said, there are a lot of community and church events that won’t be taking place so I wanted to put together a list of activities that families can do at home to keep Easter fun and festive.
