3 Tips to Make Easter Fun for Kids

Scrambling to plan an Easter celebration for the family, and don't know what to do to make Easter fun for kids?  If you are looking for ideas to keep the kids entertained this Easter, check out my post below as I give you ideas for 3 Tips to Make Easter Fun for Kids.

Plan an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt

Kids love to hunt for Easter eggs.  It's a proven fact that, to most kids, that's what Easter is all about.  They just love to hunt for those brightly colored Easter eggs.  So why not make Easter fun for kids, by making more of a game out of it?  Make up a colorful page with steps on how to find the "Easter egg treasure".  Give each child a copy of the page, and have them follow the instructions on how to find the treasure.  It can be a map of sorts with them looking for clues that will lead them to the Easter egg treasure.  End it with a super prize, such as an Easter basket with goodies inside.  Whoever finds the "Easter egg treasure" wins the basket with the treasure.  In addition, you can make up small baskets with goodies.  That way every child wins.

Have an Egg-Coloring Contest

Another thing you can prepare in advance to make Easter fun for kids is an area with a large table set up.  It should contain all the items the kids will need to color their Easter eggs.  Plan a time to do this around your dinner so it doesn't interfere.  Explain the rules so the kids know how to compete.  Give them a time limit in which to color their most specially colored and designed egg.  Have prizes available as you did for the Easter egg treasure hunt.  The winner gets the larger prize (whatever you decide that will be).  The other kids get prizes just for participating.

Finally, have an old-fashioned egg hunt

At the end of the Easter celebration, you can make Easter fun for kids by doing a traditional Easter egg hunt.  You can make it fun by using plastic Easter eggs.  Hide things other than candy in the Easter eggs they find.  You can put candy in some, and money in others.  Kids have real motivation if they know there will be other "prizes" inside the eggs they find, especially money!  Use your imagination, and you can even put small toys inside the plastic eggs as well.  Just make sure there are no kids smaller than 3 years old.  You don't want them to accidentally swallow any small toys they might get inside the plastic eggs.

Try these tips to make Easter fun for kids, and always remember the reason for the Easter holiday.  Jesus is the reason for the season.
