Easter Fun – Keeping the Day Light and Lively

Fun Easter Activities

Take time to prepare yourself for new and separate traditions from the person you co-parent with. 

Make Easter fun by focusing on the kids.

Focus on the kids having fun. Be sure to take care of yourself and give yourself private time to address any difficult emotions that are troubling you about the changes in your relationship. If this is your first holiday since the separation, focusing on the kids can help you and the kids heal and have a fantastic Easter.  With fun activities, and games this holiday can be lots of fun

Holidays are typically all about family.  Take time to prepare yourself for new and separate traditions from the person you co-parent with.  If you don’t have the kids at all Easter Day, plan some Easter time either before or after the actual day to celebrate together.  Talk to your ex about the traditions you already had and their plans for celebration. Some activities might be worth doing twice.  You can also divide up favorite activities or create new ones.  Below are ideas that might work for you. 

1. Games are always fun. Our Easter games include:

The Egg Toss:  Compete to see who can toss it the farthest, or the longest amount of time tossing it in the air.  If you have four or more participants, you can team up and see who can toss the egg back and forth the longest time.  Tip: hardboiled eggs make less mess. Uncooked eggs add a whole new element of fun to the game unless it breaks on you!

Easter Charades: Pick favorite books, movies, or characters and write down the names on small sheets of paper.  Tuck the paper in plastic Easter Eggs and place in a basket.  Take turns selecting an egg and see if you can get the other players to guess the name in the shortest amount of time!

Easter Bunny Hop Races: Lay out a course in the back yard or a at a nearby park.  Players will each need a pillowcase to take part – as they need to put their legs into the pillowcase.  First one to the finish line wins. A chocolate rabbit or bag of jellybeans is a great prize for first place.

hunting for easter eggs

Easter Egg Hunt: A tried and true Easter Day game. If you hide your eggs inside, be sure to make a map and count all the eggs.  You don’t want to have an egg be hidden for weeks and they find it by your sense of smell.

Attend an Easter Church service, Easter Parade, or gather the neighborhood kids together and build a parade of your own…

Rolling the Egg Race:  Find a nice hill at a local park.  Have all players ‘Bowl” their egg down the hill.  The person whose egg goes the farthest wins! You can also throw the eggs – that can be messy and not recommended!

2. Activities that you can do together

The first thing that comes to mind is dying eggs. Here is a link to a Craft Panda You tube video that has great tips that go beyond the “dip” technique we all know.  Spice up the activity by trying new and creative ways to make the eggs unique!

Everyone loves decorating Sugar Cookies.  Use cutouts for eggs, chicks, birds and flowers.  Supply icing in multiple colors, sprinkles and pens using edible ink.  It’s fun to do and you get to eat them. Yum!

Attend an Easter Church service, Easter Parade, or gather the neighborhood kids together and build a parade of your own – with an Easter Egg hunt at the end.  Buy little Kazoos and play the “Hear Comes Peter Cottontail” song.

Make an Easter Basket for an older family member or neighbor that lives alone. It’s a great way to teach empathy and caring for others. If you don’t know anyone who fits that bill, make up a basket of treats and bring to a local senior center.

Plan an Easter Picnic complete with Deviled Eggs or Egg Salad Sandwiches – use up those Easter Eggs!!

Summary

Focusing on fun, filling the day with activities can create new traditions and new fun for the family. Please add your ideas in the comments section.  If your family enjoyed it, chances are that other families will enjoy it too.
