In this post, we will tell you about Easter Activities for kids 2020. Easter is a festival which is celebrated by Christians all across the world. All the Christians wait eagerly for this festival to arrive as along with the festival comes a lot of happiness, love, and enthusiasm among the people. People love to celebrate this festival as this festival is full of positivity. It is said that this festival is celebrated to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. According to the New Testament, Jesus Christ was crucified on the day of Friday which we all know as the Black Friday. But two days after the resurrection, on the third day, Jesus Christ was resurrected and that day is celebrated as Easter all across the globe. Because of this great historical background of this festival, this Easter becomes so important for all the Christians. Now check out some Easter Activities for kids 2020.
Easter Activities for kids 2020
Decorated Easter Eggs
First – what kind of craft eggs do you have?
– if you have white polystyrene eggs you are ready to roll straight away
– if you have the plastic craft eggs you will need to just paste on one layer of plain white kitchen paper and leave dry
Next – cut out the stand and ears
I used a heart cookie cutter to mark out the base on some coloured felt, two per egg. Then I cut out two large white felt ears and two smaller coloureds felt ears per egg. Finally, I cut a small heart for the nose and a little circle for the fluffy belly.
Now let’s assemble
– sandwich two hearts together to create the thick and sturdy base ( I used a glue gun but any quick-drying glue will do)
– glue the small coloured ears onto the centre of the white ears
– pinch the narrow end of one ear together and glue to the top of the egg, repeat with the second ear
– glue the wider end of the egg onto the base
– tie a bow out of some ribbon and glue on in front of the ears
– then with your permanent marker draw on the face features, eyes first, stick on the heat nose, and then draw the mouth and stick on the belly dot
tada, you have a cuter than cute easter egg decorations.
Do you know what an egg roll is? No, not that crispy appetizer at a Chinese restaurant. This other kind of egg roll is an Easter tradition that’s different from culture to culture and family to family.
A number of years ago a Scottish friend introduced my family to his version and we try to include it in our Easter festivities whenever we can. Simply boil a bunch of eggs, have fun decorating them, then pack them up and bring them to a park with a big hill. From the top of the hill, players can take turns rolling their eggs down. The egg that travels the furthest wins. We tend to invent rules as we go, so there’s always lots of running (and rolling) up and down the hill.
Active egg hunt
With older kids, a classic egg hunt might be activity enough if you challenge them with finishing times, quantities collected, or even make it a race. Obviously, only you know if your kids are ready to handle a little friendly competition, and if they are, it’s a great way to intensify the egg hunt.
Have a dance party. Whether you’re at a big family gathering or it’s just you and your kids, there’s nothing like some good old-fashioned dancing. Turn on some favourite tunes and everyone can show off their best moves.
Pack your gear
When you’re headed to a family dinner, pack the baseball gloves or a soccer ball. Then, when kids are getting antsy waiting for dinner to start, head to the nearest park. All those Easter goodies can lead to quite the sugar rush, so kids and adults alike will probably welcome the chance to run around and play together. It’s also a great way for kids who don’t see each other often to break the ice.
Have an Easter Parade
Toddlers and preschoolers will love putting on their Easter bonnets, making fancy signs, decorating their ride-on toys, and walking, marching, riding, and scooting down the street for a neighbourhood Easter Parade.
