It’s that time again!! Time to find some fun Easter activities for children that they can enjoy all day long on that special day. I love creating Easter baskets for my 3 girls. Even my oldest who is 17 expects and enjoys finding hers in the morning. I don’t think you can ever be too old for treats and games. 😉 Sponsored by SweetTARTS.

Of course there are a lot of baking things you can do together and I definitely encourage you to do so. The easiest they are the more kids will enjoy them. Start with something using cake mix like our Easter Bundt Cake and go from there.

What do you think about the basket I put together this year??!! I love finding cute but reusable baskets like this one that can be later used as a bin for treasures in their room. Then I move on to including their favorite treats and this year I found these adorable tubes filled with the flavors we love. Tell me this game brings back memories of your childhood. 😉

Easter Activities for Preschoolers

So…after the excitement of opening all goodies in their Easter basket, it’s time for playing with the fun Easter activities for children included inside!

Jelly beans in the shapes of Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies Toppers are not only delicious but they will be a part of the first fun game you can all play together!

Include a few free Easter printables like bunny coloring pages and Easter Bingo page in each child’s basket. Then sit down and play together.

  • Mom…all you have to do is cut one sheet up into squares and pull that picture out of a hat and either call it out. For young children show them the picture so they can see if they have it on their Bingo card.
  • Mark it off with either a SweetTarts jelly bean, chick, duck, or bunny candy!

Easter Activities for Kindergarten

When you’re done with that fun Spring time activity it is on to the next, check out how to make homemade play putty!

You can make a batch the night before and stick some in the plastic eggs. Then include small cookie cutters, plastic knives, and maybe a small plastic cutting board and have fun with it!

Save a newspaper and show them how the image transfers from the page to their putty. Or for added fun allow them to draw a picture with markers on a paper and show them how it “magically” transfers to their putty.

Inside each child’s Easter basket you can also include an Easter Word Search and they can have a race to see who can find all the words first.

  • Include a yellow marker inside their basket so they can use it as a highlighter when they are finding each word.

Have them put a SweeTARTS jelly bean over the words at the bottom as they find them so they know how many they have left to find. Then they can eat their treats when they’re all done!
