Making Easter Fun for Kids
You can buy an egg painting kit at nearly any supermarket around the Easter months. Hard boil some eggs and let your children have fun decorating them for the Easter holidays.
You place dye of different colors in various cups. Eggs are then dunked in the dye to add color. You can even get creative and dye the eggs with shaving cream or watercolors.Make sure your kids wear old clothing when decorating eggs to avoid getting dirty.
Have an Easter egg hunt.
An iconic part of Easter is the Easter egg hunt. You can have kids hide real boiled eggs they decorated. However, you can also replace real eggs by plastic eggs with treats and hide them throughout your home.
- If opting for plastic eggs, you can provide things like Cheerios and pretzels if you want healthier snacks. Religious families sometimes put Bible verses on pieces of paper in plastic eggs.
- Keep track of where you hid all the eggs in case they are not all found by the hunters. This is especially important if you’re hiding real eggs, as these will eventually start to rot.
- Some large Easter egg hunts are put on by local communities or organizations and are open for you and your family to attend. See if you can find an Easter egg hunt in your area.
