Easter Activities for Toddlers

Whether celebrated religiously or just as a renewal of nature, Easter is an extra fun time for littlies. After all, the first signs of a warm season manifest nature’s upcoming renaissance together with a bag of fun traditions you never tire of. The good news is that Easter traditions with toddlers vary – from the classy Easter egg activities for toddlers to new joys you’ve never heard of.

1. Easter Egg Hunt with Kids

Do they promise warm temperatures on festive Sunday? Don’t miss a chance to catch sun rays and arrange hunting for eggs! You know how to decorate Easter eggs with toddlers, so now ensure you’ve got all the essentials needed! First, no hunt will be successful without plastic eggs filled with Easter treats for toddlers together with other small things like toys or money. Provide each hunter with a wood Easter basket where they put all the found treasures and wear suitable clothes.

2. Easter Story Time

As you sort through Easter ideas for toddlers, remember that the Easter family celebration is about creating rituals. Well, choose yours! Perhaps it’s the old song that your grandma used to sing to mark the celebration of hope? Or the fancy dinner menu that everyone had to participate in the making of? You can do it your way. Make reading/storytelling part of the springtime holiday routine. Choose narratives about the Easter Bunny or, if your family is religious, invite your munchkins to listen about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

1. Easy Easter Egg Decorating with Kids

One of the best things about decorating festive eggs with toddlers is that it doesn't require a lot of materials or preparation. All you need are:

  • hard-boiled eggs
  • non-toxic markers or paint
  • paper or newspaper to protect your workspace. 

You can even use natural dyes made from fruits or vegetables for a more eco-friendly option.

2. Easter Bunny Crafts for Toddlers

Easter crafts for toddlers age 3 are a fun way to celebrate the season with your little ones. Making bunny crafts from various materials can develop creativity in children while providing an excellent opportunity for them to engage in a fun activity and boost motor skills, just like Montessori stacking toys do. Paper bunny crafts can involve cutting out shapes and using markers to draw a face and other features. Cotton balls can be glued onto the paper bunny for a fluffier look. Pipe cleaners can be used to create bunny ears or whiskers.

  • Great idea! Opting for pastila instead of sugary treats – I wholeheartedly support this concept! Unfortunately, on Easter, all relatives tend to give the little one unhealthy sweets. But this 2024 year, I’ll ask everyone to treat the child with pastila only!

  • Such cool activities for 2-3-year-olds on Easter! As a dad, it’s quite challenging for me to constantly come up with different activities for my super active girl who always craves something new. Baking desserts together is definitely not our thing, not our style. However, decorating Easter eggs sounds like the perfect Easter activity for us in 2024.
