With Easter around the corner, you are probably excited to celebrate and spend this special day with your loved ones – especially your grandkids. But at the same time, you might be thinking about how to entertain them. Not to worry, here is a list of fun activities you can do with your grandkids this Easter.
Craft Easter Baskets Together
Easter baskets are one item that you will undoubtedly see every Easter. Thus, what better Easter day activity than making an Easter basket with your loved ones? Here is what you can do to add excitement and anticipation to building an Easter basket together. Create a simple but beautiful invitation for your loved ones and grandkids. In the invitation, advertise that everyone will be allowed to make their own personal Easter baskets with all their favorite snacks or goodies. From Easter grass, chocolate bunnies, and jelly beans, to colorful tissue papers, these are just some things you can add to your Easter basket.
Organize a Chocolate Bunny-Making Activity
One thing that your grandkids can’t get enough of? Sweets, goodies, and all cute things. And a chocolate bunny ticks all those factors. Thus, hosting a chocolate bunny-making class would be something your grandkids will definitely love. Not only can they learn how to make their own chocolate bunny, but they can also taste the sweet reward of all their hard work. Teach them how to build their own Easter bunnies out of melted chocolate and bunny molds. Simply fill molds with chocolate before putting them in the freezer. To make the bunnies, pour candies into the mold and use melted chocolate as glue to seal the other side of the cast.
Host an Easter Egg Hunt
Is there anything more you should do on Easter? Obviously, it’ll be an Easter egg hunt. Planning an Easter egg hunt is a fantastic Easter Day activity that you can do with your loved ones – especially your grandkids. If you do not want to use excessively sweet and sugary Easter eggs, here’s a tip. Play-Doh spring eggs, painted stones, or painted hardboiled eggs are great alternatives. Additionally, attempt to conceal the easter eggs in areas where your loved ones may readily find them. Essentially, they shouldn’t be placed on the floor or in areas that are too low or high for them to reach. This is because they can find the Easter eggs within view, hence, feel more excited and satisfied upon finding them.
Watch Easter Movies Together
Another fun Easter day activity to do with your grandkids? You can watch an Easter-themed movie together. Not only will it have more Easter vibes, but it is also a wonderful way to bring the family together regardless of their age or interest. Everyone will appreciate seeing a timeless classic with their loved ones, whether they go to the cinema or turn their living room into a family theater. Easter Parade and Peter Rabbit are some great examples of Easter-themed movies your grandkids will definitely enjoy.
