Fun Ideas to Celebrate the Easter Holiday with Your Family.

Eggstravaganza Children of all ages love to color and decorate Easter eggs! Coloring eggs has been a part of spring festivities for centuries. In both Passover and Easter traditions, the egg symbolizes new life. This year consider involving the whole family in an evening of Easter egg decorating. Younger children have fun using Q-tips to dip into egg colorings to decorate their eggs.

Easter Games Keep the eggcitement going after the egg hunt by playing some of these games:

Easter Obstacle Course—Separate children into two teams. Provide each team with one spoon and a sugar egg or plastic Easter egg. Each team needs to navigate its way around and through various obstacles without dropping its eggs.

Easter Bunny Hop—Conduct a relay race for two or three teams.Each player must cover a certain distance while jumping with a plastic egg between his/her knees.

Egg Roll—Using only their noses, children must roll an egg across the finish line. This also makes a good relay.

Easter Baskets

Before Easter arrives, get creative and help your children make their own Easter baskets out of clean half-gallon milk or juice cartons. Cut a section off the bottom of the milk carton. Clean thoroughly and cut a piece of craft paper to wrap around the container. Glue craft sticks to create a fence around the container and let dry. When dry, use small flowers or decorative craft foam pieces to decorate the container. Drill a hole to opposite sides. Twist two pipe cleaners together to make a handle. Attach handle on container and fill with Easter grass. This also makes a very nice Easter table decoration.

Two Easter Baskets

Two Easter baskets,
Under a tree.
One for you, (Make a left fist with thumb inside.)
And one for me. (Make a right fist with thumb inside.)

I peeked in one basket,
And what did I see? (Look down at left fist.)
A new baby chick,
Smiling at me!

Then I looked in the other,
And what do you think? (Look down at right fist.)
Out popped a bunny,
Quick as a wink! (Pop right thumb out of fist.)
(Author Unknown)

Easter Cookies
Your young guests will no doubt be ready for a snack. In addition to any other delicious treats you plan, allow children to decorate some baked sugar cookies shaped like eggs, rabbits, or chicks. (You can bake the cookies ahead of time and freeze them until ready to decorate.) Provide bowls of pastel-colored icings, jelly beans, sprinkles, and other decorations.

Egg Coloring and Decorating

The Eggs
The first thing you need is either hard boiled or blown eggs.

Hard Boiled Eggs If you intend to eat the hard boiled eggs, keep them refrigerated. Note: Eggs are not safe to eat if they have been left out or are painted with acrylic paints.

Blown Eggs They are much more fragile and harder for young kids to handle. I would also not advise to use blown eggs with young kids.

Crepe Paper Dye
Food Coloring Dye
Wax Crayon Eggs
Sponge Painted Eggs

Crepe Paper Dye

You need:

  • Different color crepe paper
  • Hot water
  • Small bowls or cups
  • Slotted spoon
  • Cooking oil
  • Soft cloth

Soak crepe paper in hot water in individual bowls or cups for each color. Add eggs and allow to sit in water until the desired color is achieved. Remove with slotted spoon and allow to dry. Polish with small amount of cooking oil and soft cloth.


Food Coloring Dye

You need:

  • Food coloring
  • Hot water
  • White vinegar
  • Small bowls or cups
  • Slotted spoon
  • Cooking oil
  • Soft cloth

For each color measure 1/4 tsp food coloring in small bowl. Add 3/4 cup hot water and 1 tbsp white vinegar to each color. Add eggs and allow to sit until they are the desired color. Remove with slotted spoon. Polish dry eggs with small amount of cooking oil and soft cloth.


Wax Crayon Eggs

You need:

  • Wax crayons
  • Paper towels
  • Egg dyes in different colors
  • Slotted spoon

Draw crayon pattern on hard boiled egg. Dip egg in dark colored dye. Keep egg in dye until desired color is reached. Remove with slotted spoon and place in 200 degree F oven for a few minutes until wax is melted. Wipe with paper towel. Variation: Dip egg again in lighter dye to fill in pattern where wax was. Polish finished eggs with cooking oil and soft cloth.

Sponge Painted Eggs

You need:

  • Liquid tempera paint or liquid egg color
  • Paper cups (for each color)
  • Small pieces of foam or sponge
  • Clothespins (for each color)

Place hard boiled in egg cups. Partially fill paper cups with different colors of paint. Use clothespin as handle and clip a piece of sponge to a clothespin and dip into paper cups. Lightly dab the sponge over the top half of the egg. Let dry. Turn egg over and repeat procedure. Let the egg dry completely.

Here's to a wonderful tradition-filled Easter!
