Easter weekend is oneof the most significant holidays for families every year. For many of us who have gone through winter, it is a chance to get out and enjoy the spring and all it brings. Kids are especially aware of this holiday because of all the events that they get to participate in including egg hunt, egg painting, craft making and games.
Whether you observe Easter holiday for religious reasons or just a time to relax, choose to make it a family event and plan games around it.
This Easter, there are a number of family fun games and activities that your family can participate in. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Egg and spoon race. This is a very fun game that has been played since the early 1800s. You simply need an egg (hard-boiled if you mind cleaning up after) and a spoon. The best part is that this game can be player with 2 or 10 people.
- Make Easter treats. Easter holiday is marked by a number of treats that you can make with your kids at home. You can choose to make chocolate fondue, bunny sugar cookies, caramel easter popcorn and many other simple recipes.
- Easter craft making. Making items out of paper and other materials is a great way to bond with your kids and this holiday presents a perfect time for it. You can make bunny bookmarks, Easter paper rings, colorful paper eggs and the list goes on.
I can’t exhaust all the activities here but this will give you an idea and hopefully inspire you to find more ideas on the world wide web.
A Lesson In Giving
Although we don’t think about Easter as a time of giving or sharing, it may be a good time to teach kids how to share their treats with others and work together (through egg hunts and other activities) for a common goal. Whether it’s building crafts or cooking or playing, Easter presents opportunities to teach kids important values.
Holidays bring about their share of stress and unexpected events. It’s always good to plan ahead so that the holiday doesn’t get ruined because of one issue or the other. One way you can do that is to ensure you have plenty of help with the kids in case you need to do last minute shopping. Do you have a reliable nanny or babysitter that you can count on?
