Easter can be a fun time for kids who are looking out for yummy Easter eggs and sweet Easter Bunny candies. However, to make your child’s Easter both enjoyable and educational, you might want to consider doing certain activities that are related to this holiday. You might even suggest these activities to your child’s school so that everyone would have a fun time.
Fun Easter Activities for Kids
Easter Word Find
This is a very simple Easter activity that you can do both at home and in the classroom. Give your children words that are related to Easter, such as “Easter bunny”, “Easter eggs” or “Easter chocolate”. Have them draw up a list of words that they could create from the letters in these Easter words. In the case of “Easter bunny”, your child can come up with words like “east”, “sat”, “set”, “sunny”, “buns”, etc. The child who comes up with the longest list of words wins the game.
Easter Sentence Jumble
In this game, you give the children sentences about Easter that have been jumbled up. To win the game, they should decipher the jumbled up sentences in their correct order. For example, the words “going”, “I”, Easter”, ‘the”, “Bunny”, “am”, “find” and “to” should be correctly written as “I am going to find the Easter Bunny”. A more difficult variation is to jumble the letters up into groups. For example, wear ego ingon anea stere ggh unt will be written as “We are going on an Easter Egg hunt”.
Easter Riddle Game
This particular Easter game can be quite difficult, but at the same time engrossing. To play this game, prepare 10-15 Easter riddles and their answers. Put the riddles and the answers on separate cards. Hide these cards in your home or in the classroom. Have the children search for these cards. Once all the cards have been gathered, let the kids match the riddle to the answer. You can also transform it into a memory game by laying the cards face down on the table. The kids should flip the 2 cards open to see if the riddle matches the answer. If not, they lay the cards face down again. If they find the answer to a riddle which they had earlier opened, they go back and lay the “answer” card (together with the “riddle” card) face up. The game ends when all the riddle cards have been matched with their corresponding answers. Obviously, the child who gets the most matches wins the game.
Easter Egg Math Jumble
This is the perfect game for kids who have problems with their math. Cut out colorful Easter eggs and write down numbers and equation symbols on them. The object of the game is to have your child create an equation with the cards that are given to him or her. For example, cards with =, 3, +, 7, 1 and 0 will form the equation 7 + 3 = 10.
Hangman is a popular spelling game among kids, but you can give it a fun Easter twist. Print out a picture of the Easter bunny with 10 to 14 parts. Following the mechanics of the Hangman game, have the kids spell out Easter words, like rabbit, chocolate, candy, parade, and flowers.
These are just a few Easter activities that you can enjoy with your kids. Discover other fun Easter games today!
