With Easter coming up on Sunday, April 20th, are you looking for some easy Easter activities for kids? If you are, I have a few ideas for you. These were suggested by my friends and are tried and true. I am sure they will be a hit with the kids.
Easter Activities for Kids in the Kitchen
Olga Serpas and Jenny Conwell Greaney suggested that we try to make these kid friendly treats with the all time favorite cereal – Kellogg’s Rice Krispies! They have easy to follow directions and ingredient lists on the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies page, just click on the links below to get there.
Looking for an easy snack for the kids to make on Easter day? This one looks fun to make and yummy to eat!
My friend Deanna Woollen thought these Banana Dolphins that were shared on the Consignment Mommies‘s Facebook page were cute. The caption read, “How cute are these banana dolphin snacks from Luz’s Unique Creations? What a fun way to prepare fruit snacks for a party!” If you have bananas and grapes around the house, these banana dolphins would be simple for the kids to make for their snack time treat. They are certainly more nutritious to eat than all the candy they have been hunting!
Easter Activities for Kids Outside
Abdhaly Guzman Farnsworth suggested, “Jelly Beans in the Garden.” Wondering what to do? You have your little sweeties plant jelly beans the night before Easter in your garden/flowerbed/small inside container (be creative). Then on Easter morning, they can see what has grown while they were sleeping… stick lollipops. (Provided you go out and put them in the same area.) You might want to take out the jelly beans in case you have a curious kiddo that will dig in the ground to be sure the jelly beans are gone or have grown.
Easter Activities for Kids During Art Time
My friend Michelle Young gave me some crafty ideas for kids to create during art time. Painting crosses – you can pick up some paint and small/large crosses at a local craft store. Paint the crosses on a rainy day. Let the kids personalize them by adding stickers or creating layered designs. Print Easter clip art – bunnies, chicks, baskets, crosses, eggs – from the computer. Allow the kids to color with markers or crayons. With older kids, they can cut out their pictures and make a banner by stringing them together or gluing them down on a larger piece of paper. They could also practice creating patterns with their pictures. These are sure to add hours of fun for the kids between now and Easter!
Hope you all enjoy these activities. Thank you ladies for all of your suggestions! Please let me know how these activities go for your kids! Would love to see your pictures too. You can share them with me at iamtarabuck.com.
