Easter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start making some holiday plans. And because you’ve learned from experience that not even an ungodly amount of Easter candy is enough to keep your (hyped up) kids and the rest of the clan entertained for the whole day., you need some spring-themed activities on hand to keep everyone occupied. Here, a list of fun things to do on Easter—from birdhouse-making and gardening to brunch party-hosting and parade-going—that will help you celebrate the holiday to the fullest.

11 to Do on Easter

1. Watch an Easter Movie

When the sugar rush wears off, it’s time for a low-key activity—like cozying up on the couch to watch a holiday-themed movie, for example. Psst: You can find some of our favorite, festive picks here.

2. Decorate Easter Eggs

Whether you keep things simple with a store-bought dye kit or have a more ambitious plan to achieve a Pinterest-worthy finished product (like one of these), decorating Easter eggs is just plain fun for the whole fam. Gather your materials, dial up the creativity and get started—just remember to save a few eggs for that Easter brunch you’ll be making later.

3. Check out an Easter Parade

Depending on where you live, a vibrant holiday celebration might be going down in the streets. Parades and other Easter events are a family-friendly spectacle that draws big crowds, and other cities host similarly colorful events featuring floats, costumes, live music and plenty of tasty street food.

4. Host an Easter Brunch

In case you missed it, Easter brunch is kind of a big deal
such a big deal, in fact, that there’s a good chance every table at your favorite local restaurant will be filled. Skip the crowds and spring for an at-home brunch instead. Mix up some cocktails, prepare a menu of crowd-pleasing dishes and invite a few good friends over to enjoy the feast in a setting that’s decidedly more comfortable than a chaotic eatery.

5. Plan or Attend an Easter Egg Hunt

What to do with all those beautiful eggs you just decorated? Hide ‘em, of course. This classic holiday tradition has stood the test of time because it is genuinely fun for folks of all ages. Design your own egg hunt—we recommend an outdoor one for a breath of fresh spring air and an opportunity for kids to run off all that crazy candy energy—or attend a public egg hunt in your community if you prefer a bigger, social event. Either way, an eggcellent time is guaranteed. (Sorry, we had to.)

7. Bake a Holiday Treat

Put down the Cadbury Mini Eggs for a sec (we know, it’s hard) and satisfy your sweet tooth with a festive baking project instead. Make a carrot cake, whip up a batch of hot cross buns, or stray from the traditional with any of these swoon-worthy dessert recipes that suit the occasion (and then, you know, dig in).

8. Spend Some Time in the Garden

Spring is in full swing, which means the time is just right for planting flowers. Put potted ones in the ground or, if you’re patient, score some seeds at your local nursery and plant those instead. No matter which route you take, a little time spent tending to the garden promises a major reward for kids and adults alike—namely, fresh air, sunshine and a prettier patch of land to admire.

9. Read an Easter Book Together

When the festivities have begun to wind down and the brunch guests have all gone home, a quiet activity is likely in order. Grab a tired kid and snuggle up together in your favorite reading nook for a short-but-sweet story (or several) that celebrates the true spirit of the holiday. We’re fans of How to Catch the Easter Bunny by Adam Wallace—a rollicking, secular read—and The Story of Easter by Patricia Pingry for a little religious education. That said, there are an array of books with positive messages and fitting, seasonal themes to browse (and the time for holiday library building is now).

10. Create Some Easter Crafts

The Easter holiday is an ideal time to show off your craft skills. It’s all about getting creative and inventive with Easter egg decorations, coming up with lively, out-of-the-box Easter egg hunt ideas, decorating your home for those delicious Easter feasts with loved ones, or just celebrating spring with colorful, cheerful crafts.

11. Have a Picnic

Easter really marks the beginning of Spring, the beginning of more sunshine, warmth and spending lots of time outside. I love it! So I thought having an Easter picnic would be very appropriate with the arrival of nicer weather. When I was younger, we always used to go to the park on Easter and my parents would hide the eggs there – But how fun would it be to spend a few hours outside, enjoying the sun and the first few signs of spring while the kids run around looking for Easter eggs?! I think this brings guaranteed fun for the whole family. And by all means, if you have a big garden, set up camp there! Picnic Plan
