Easter Activities for the Whole Family

Easter Activities for the Whole Family

Looking for fun activities to enjoy on Easter Sunday with your family (beyond the obvious egg hunt)? Check out this mix of indoor and outdoor games and activities for kids of all ages.

Egg and Spoon Race

Try this good old-fashioned outdoor game after your Easter egg hunt is over! Egg and spoon races date back to the late 1800s. All you need are eggs (hard-boiled are the least messy) and metal or wooden spoons for each participant. Race individually or relay-style.

Jelly Bean Guessing Games

Here’s an easy indoor game for all ages! Simply fill a jar with jelly beans and ask each family member to guess how many candies there are. The winner (the closest without going over) takes all! Another jelly bean-themed game involves asking players to guess the correct flavour of fancy jelly beans they taste.

Create Easter Crafts

Put the kids in charge of making adorable decor for your Easter table, or fun bunny ears or creative Easter bonnets for all your guests to wear!

Give a Gift Basket

Teach kids to perform a random act of kindness this Easter and put together a gift basket for an elderly relative or neighbour. Get creative with the contents to make this a more fun and meaningful activity. For example, have the kids fill plastic Easter eggs with nice notes that say things like, “You’re egg-cellent!” and “Sweetest neighbour ever.”
