Easter Ideas For Kids

This time of year is a fun time to engage kids with some entertaining and educational crafts and activities. We have lots of Easter ideas to keep kids learning all while using their imaginations and creativity.

Below are some of our favorite Easter crafts and activities, so all you have to do is choose the ones your little bunnies will be hoppy to make.

Easter Books For Kids

Reading books with your kids during Easter is an exciting activity that can bring the whole family together.

Not only is it a great way to get lost in a good story, but introducing them to literature has many other benefits like teaching literacy skills, improving language, increasing their attention span, and even teaching them important lessons.

Giving your children books as Easter gifts encourages and incentivizes children to learn as they explore and uncover a world of information through reading. This Easter, instead of filling those baskets with chocolate eggs alone, consider adding some books too!

There are so many great Easter books for kids, but these are some of our favorites. Grab them from the library or buy them to add to your child’s collection! They’re great for helping your child develop a larger vocabulary, focus, and more!

Happy Easter Mouse – Everyone knows Mouse from the classic If You Give A Mouse A Cookie book, but now he’s back and ready to celebrate Easter! Kids will love watching him as he goes on an Easter egg hunt!

Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure – Join Pete as he races to help the Easter bunny just in time for Easter! This is another new classic kids rate as a must-have!

It’s Not Easy Being A Bunny – Follow PJ the bunny as he tries to discover what kind of animal he’d rather be instead of a bunny! It’s a silly story with a great lesson.
