When you have kids, you start doing new things which makes your kid engaged and happy. Celebrating Easter was never my kind of thing but now with my girl growing up, I have started to explore new things for her. Easter is not just about baskets full of gifts or candies. Easter is all about the hunt. This year we went for Easter egg hunt for the first time and we are going to continue this trend every year because we had so much fun.
Egg hunt Fun: Only preparation I had to do was to get her bunny hair band, bunny dress, bunny shoes and bunny basket. We knew that baby J is not going to hunt many eggs because she actually don’t know what hunting means but she surely had a blast running around with her basket and trying to figure out what other kids are looking for.
Easter comes in spring season. kids meet Easter bunny and gets candies. We too met Easter bunny and clicked pictures.
Easter fun activity for toddlers at home: Toddlers are always super energetic and we should keep finding new activities for building their motor skills. Because its Easter season so I planned one fun activity for my kiddo. Its ‘decorate the egg with your little bunny hands’. This is super easy and you don’t need to buy anything expensive. I had everything at home.
Things you need:
- 3 – 4 Colorful papers for cutting different shapes (as shown in part 1 and 2 in below image)
- 1 dark color sheet for cutting it into egg shape
- 1 white sheet to stick the egg cutting on it ( or you can use any other paper)(as shown I part 4 in below image)
When you are done with cutting the egg and pasting it on a sheet then apply glue all over the egg so that we can paste our cuttings on it easily.
Show your kiddo how to pick and paste the cuttings over egg. The idea is to teach them so that they can do it by themselves.
After some time let your kid explore the whole thing and fill the egg with shapes. It helps building their motor skills.
Isn’t it simple and fun and cost effective? You can try this activity for any other theme too. Like Christmas you can cut the paper in a tree shape or if it’s Diwali you can cut it in Diya shape.
If you try our Easter fun activity at home let us know how it went by leaving a comment or you can share what other activities you plan for your kids? You know sharing is caring right J
Happy Easter !

I love the activity decorating the Easter egg. What a cute idea.
She is so adorable, and I love her pants!! We had a blast the day before Easter with our toddler, but didn’t get too many eggs since all the big kids beat him! I’ll have to incorporate a home craft next year for sure!
My kids are older (5 + 9) but this was our first year going to an actual egg hunt hosted by a company and it was so much fun and as you said easy! Just needed the basket. Your little girl looks adorable!
This is such a fun idea! A great opportunity to talk about colors and shapes!
Great idea! We did something similar at Christmas with a Christmas tree and stickers !
Our favorite Easter activity – besides church and lunch – is decorating Easter eggs. You can get so creative with the decorating.
Next year I am going to try decorating eggs with my daughter. I agree , you can get as creative as you want with egg decoration
Thats a cute, fun activity to do with your little one! I love that outfit you got her too!
I actually love all the Easter crafts and we do hunts in the garden the whole holiday for all sorts of things! You can’t go too wrong with sparkly paper and glue x
yeah, sparkly paper and glue is super easy and fun. Egg hunt in garden with family must be amazing.
These are such fun activities!! I do many of the same things with my girls.
I tried first time this year.I am sure your girls loved it too.
My preschooler really enjoyed the egg hunt we went on last year, so I’m sure we’ll try and do another this year, if she isn’t still sick this weekend.
I like how you covered the egg in glue first – that’s a genius idea that I’m going to use for crafts with my little kids, too.
I hope she is doing better now. Love to the little one and thanks for reading.
What a great idea! Egg dyeing is definitely too messy for this age group, but this looks like a (relatively) clean, low-cost activity. Thanks for sharing!
I wanted to keep it cleaner that’s why didn’t go for egg dyeing . It was pretty clean and fun.
