Push the envelope with these twists on traditional Easter activities and crafts!
1. Easter Egg Treasure Hunt
Not too keen on filling eggs with candy? Fill them with clues instead! Spruce up a regular Easter Egg Hunt by leaving clues in each egg for a larger, grand prize! While your child’s sweet tooth might miss the candy, this is a great team exercise that your child can accomplish with his or her friends!
If you want them to keep busy for longer, turn the clues into tasks! Have them write a nice letter to the Easter bunny, dye eggs, or sing songs!
2. Make Your Own Easter Figure
While everyone loves the Easter bunny, what about other Springtime figures? Check out this website to make your own Chick Pinatas!
3. Painted Rock Eggs
Of all the Easter crafts, egg painting has the potential to get the messiest. So in lieu of real eggs, use rocks! Set up a painting station and find a handful of egg shaped rocks. Have your child paint patterns and designs and add additional feathers, rhinestones, etc. to add pizazz!
