If you're looking for ways to create lasting memories with your kids this Easter, here are ten fun activities to consider that will bring the family together to make memories but also make the holiday extra special. Whatever activities you choose, the most important thing is to create cherished memories that will last a lifetime. Happy Easter!

  1. Easter Egg Hunt: Organize an exciting Easter egg hunt in your backyard or a local park. I really enjoy ones in your backyard because you can keep it simple and invite friends over. I used to love to dress up my girls in their best Easter Belle Threads tutus and have them wear it for our Easter egg hunts in our yard. You can add small toys in the eggs instead of candy.  Get creative with the hiding spots and fill the eggs with treats and surprises. This classic activity will have your kids laughing and working together to find the hidden treasures.
  2. Decorate Easter Eggs: One classic activity to enjoy with your kids is decorating Easter eggs. Get crafty with your kids by decorating Easter eggs. You can use traditional dye kits, stickers, markers, or even try more intricate techniques like marbleizing or glitter designs. This hands-on activity allows for self-expression and creativity while making memories. Get creative with different colors, designs, and even glitter to make each egg unique. 
  3. Dress Up For The Easter Bunny Visit: Choose a Belle Threads outfit to make the holiday memory extra special. Make the holiday even more magical by arranging a visit from the Easter bunny and dressing up in your favorite Belle Threads tutu. Whether it's a surprise appearance during an Easter brunch or a special delivery of treats, seeing the Easter Bunny will surely delight your kids and create unforgettable memories with your kids.
  4. Easter Crafts: I love getting crafty with my kids. Spend quality time with your kids by engaging in Easter-themed crafts. From making bunny ears to creating Easter cards for family and friends, crafting together allows for bonding, creativity, and a sense of accomplishment.
  5. Bake Easter Treats: Get your kids involved in the kitchen by baking delicious Easter treats together. From hot cross buns to bunny-shaped cookies, baking as a family not only creates yummy treats but also teaches valuable skills and fosters teamwork.
  6. Plant a Spring Garden: One of my favorite ways to make memories with my kids is plant together and see things grow that we started together.  Embrace the spirit of renewal by planting a spring garden with your kids. Whether it's flowers, herbs, or vegetables, gardening together fosters a sense of responsibility, patience, and the joy of watching something grow.
  7. Attend an Easter Parade: Check out local Easter parades or community events happening in your area. Dress up in your Belle Threads best, join in the festivities, and soak in the joy with your kids.
  8. Easter Movie Night: Set up a cozy movie night at home with Easter-themed movies like "Hop," "Peter Rabbit," or classic favorites like "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown." Snuggle up with some popcorn and create a memorable movie night experience.
  9. Easter Picnic: Enjoy the spring weather by having a picnic with your kids. Pack Easter-themed snacks, sandwiches, and treats, and head to a nearby park or even your backyard for a relaxing and fun-filled afternoon.  I love picnic together with my kids. It's a fun surprise too.
  10. Volunteer Together: I like having my kids draw or write cards to nursing homes during the holidays.  Teach your kids the importance of giving back by volunteering together during the Easter season. Whether it's helping at a local shelter, participating in a community clean-up, or visiting a nursing home, volunteering as a family creates meaningful memories and instills values of kindness and empathy.

From traditional egg hunts to crafting beautiful decorations, each activity holds the potential to spark joy and laughter in your home. You could also try your hand at baking Easter treats together. From hot cross buns to bunny-shaped cookies, the options are endless and the end result will surely be delicious. If you're feeling crafty, consider making Easter-themed crafts like DIY bunny ears or handmade Easter cards for friends and family. For some outdoor fun, plan a family picnic or a nature walk to enjoy the beauty of springtime. You could also plant some seeds together and watch them grow as a symbol of new beginnings.

Don't forget the traditional Easter activities like attending a church service or watching a parade. These can be wonderful opportunities to teach your kids about the religious significance of the holiday and the importance of coming together as a community.

Embrace the spirit of Easter, cherish each experience, and allow the beauty of togetherness to fill your hearts.

Happy Easter, may your home be filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories.
