There are plenty of activities they can do at home or at school that will let them learn and have fun at the same time. Let’s look at some fun Easter activities
Easter Egg Crafts
There are tons of crafts you can do to get ready for Easter that kids of any age can do. Making their own Easter cards is always fun, they can use different colored paper and stickers to create works of art for grandparents or anyone else.
Hands down the most common Easter activity is to decorate and color Easter eggs. They can paint or dye Easter eggs and create different figures with their Easter eggs by painting faces on them. Kids of all ages love to play with dyes and paint and this is an inexpensive albeit messy afternoon of fun. Decorating eggs can be educational if you encourage them to try symmetrical patterns and bands of color. Here are some ideas for decorating Easter Eggs
