Awesome Easter Activities For Kids
Bingo is a staple game we play around here for pretty much all holidays. This Easter printable pack includes 8 unique bingo cards and matching calling cards.
Easter Cootie Catcher
The kids had so much fun with the Christmas cootie catcher that I had to make one for Easter as well. This one has jokes on the inside instead of conversation starters.
Pin The Ears On The Easter Bunny Game
If you’re having an Easter get together with kids, this definitely game will be a hit! It’s a little twist on the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey game.
The poster is sized as 16″x20″. I always print posters at Costco because they’re inexpensive and print true to color. The bunny ears can be printed at home on 8.5″x11″ cardstock.
Printable Easter Placemat
Another great way to keep kids occupied while the grown-ups chat at the dinner table are these fun Easter activity placemats.
They’re sized as an 11″x17″ ledger paper. You can print these at any local office supply store and they’re pretty inexpensive (I think mine were about $1.50 per placemat) since they’re all black and white.
Easter Lunch Box Notes
Lunch notes, like these colorful Easter notes, are a fun surprise to put in your child’s lunch for the days leading up to Easter.
Easter Egg Coupons
Do you rack your brain every year trying to come up with some non-candy, non-junky things to put into your kids’ Easter eggs?
Consider that a problem of your past when you use these Easter egg coupons. There are 12 premade coupons your kids can collect any time they want.
Plus, there are 3 blank eggs that you can write your own coupons on as well!
Easter Coloring Pages
No matter what age you are, coloring is always an activity that’s relaxing and fun. This Easter printable set contains 3 different coloring pages that are great for little and big kids alike.
Easter Don’t Eat Pete Game
Don’t Eat Pete is another classic holiday game we play all the time.
If you’ve never played, the idea is simple. You’ll need some sort of edible markers (M&M’s, marshmallows, etc) to cover every spot on the board.
The object of the game is for the person who is “it” to avoid eating Pete so he can eat as much candy as possible. The person chosen to be “it” will leave the room.
While he is gone, all the other players determine which space will be Pete. Then, the “it” person returns, and starts, one at a time, eating the candy off of the spots. When he goes to eat the candy from Pete’s spot, all the other players yell, “Don’t Eat Pete” and that person’s turn ends.
Play as many times as you want. If your kids are anything like mine, they’ll never want to stop playing!
These adorable little Easter bunny headbands are perfect for little kids.
They’re available in blue or pink and are super easy to put together. Simply print on thick, white cardstock and cut along the outlines.
Use glue dots, staples, or tape to create a headband loop big enough for your child’s head, then secure the bunny ears to the inside, and back of the headband.
Free Printable Easter I Spy
I Spy is not only fun, but it’s also a great way to get kids to focus, count and improve memory. Not to mention a great way for you to get a tiny bit of quiet time 🙂
