Easter: Fun Things to Do!

Fill large plastic eggs with age-appropriate toys, stickers and wrapped candy, (Tip: Keep safety in mind and avoid choosing small hard objects, or round or sticky candies that may pose a choking hazard for children under 6 years of age.) Filling the eggs can be done well in advance of the Easter-egg hunt itself, of course. When the big day arrives, keep an eye on young children during the Easter-egg hunt, so you'll be right there if they need you. And, if you plan on making your Easter-egg hunt an annual event, buy the large plastic eggs immediately after the holiday when they are on sale.

Make tie-dye Easter eggs. Squirt or drizzle various colors of paint (not too much!) onto a paper towel. Place a hard-cooked egg in the center and carefully wrap paper towel around the egg, pressing gently. Remove paper towel carefully. Egg will be colored with a tie-dye effect!

Decorate tiles. Buy inexpensive plain-white, beige or pastel tiles from a hardware store or home-improvement center. Paint or decorate with stickers.

Customize picture frames. Buy 3" x 5" wooden picture frames. Paste on stickers or small decorative cut-outs of flowers, birds, eggs or other springtime motifs.

Take an instant photo of each family. Each group can put the photo in their customized picture frame and save it as a keepsake of the day. Some families go as far as to actually hire someone to dress up as the Easter Bunny and pose for portraits.
