Looking for unique ways to get your kids in the Easter spirit? We've put together some fun, simple activities that support children's learning and get their creative juices flowing. The best part? You spend less time researching and more time connecting with your kids.
Painted Easter Rocks
Painting paper is fun and all, but doesn't it always seem that kids prefer to paint just about anything else? Channel that "I want to paint the walls and furniture" energy into painting something just as fun—rocks! Mimic the look of Easter eggs or let your little's inner Picasso take the wheel.
Pro tip: Use washable paint for less mess. Or, take this activity outside and use acrylic paint, so your rocks can be displayed outside (for the Easter bunny, of course) and the paint won't wash off in the rain.
Explore science with your kids, but make it Easter-y. Busy Toddler is one of your go-to sources for activity inspiration and this colorful science experiment reveals how everyday ingredients can transform into something new. Squirt bottles, surprising colors, and bubbles will make learning and curious kids go "whoaaa."
Cotton Ball Bunny
If everyone in the house is excited about the Easter bunny, make one of your own with a craft that's easy to prepare and has steps kids of all ages can follow. All you need is some paper, glue, and cotton balls!
