13 Easter Activities for Kids

This roundup of books, crafts, activites, and printables is sure to have something that will please and entertain your littles for the holiday.

Easter is sneaking up on me.  In fact, I’m sorta trying to ignore it because it’s the same weekend as Littlest’s 12th birthday.

We do lots of fun stuff in our homeschool around Easter, and I don’t imagine that will ever change.  Nature walks, rabbit studies (super easy since we raise rabbits), new chicks for the farmyard… You get it.  Whether Easter is a religious thing for you or not, it offers plenty of learning opportunities.

For instance, every year we try a new method of coloring our eggs.  Since my family absolutely loves what they call “Mom’s famous deviled eggs,” I don’t care if the boys think they’re too old for egg-dying.  I have to have hard-boiled eggs for our Easter meal, so we science (or art) it up to keep it interesting.

If you’re looking for super fun ideas to celebrate and learn about Easter with your littles, well… You know me, I’ve got the goods.

 

I’ve got several Story Times that are Easter appropriate, and they include free printables, language, science, a craft, and even a recipe for a snack.  Check these out:

Story Time: The Whispering Rabbit includes crafts, recipes, and other activities to help your littles enjoy the picture book even more.
