If you are hosting an Easter event, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have young children hanging around your house. And if there are young children hanging around your house, it would behoove you to have some fun things planned to keep them entertained after the egg hunt is over. This blog post is all about fun Easter entertainment.
Arts and Crafts
Arts and crafts are good for numerous reasons. They give people a chance to get creative, they allow for bonding time between kids and adults, and more importantly, they are just plain fun. Or at least they can be, with a little preparation on your part. You need to know what folks will enjoy, and you’ll need to arm yourself with all the necessary materials.
Some projects require a few simple supplies, such as these printable crafts. Others require more pre-planning and in some cases, more money invested ahead of time, like this project made with buttons and fabric. The end result is well worth it!
Fun with Food
Pretty much everybody likes eating, and when you couple food with entertainment, the celebration is sure to be a success! Sure, you can go traditional and hard boil eggs with this simple recipe then let everybody dye eggs for a ho-hum activity.
Even better, you can let everyone have some real fun with an Easter basket cake decorating contest! You simply bake your favorite cake recipes ahead of time, and set up competitions such as boys versus girls to see who can put together the best entry. Or, you can make cupcakes and have individual prizes for categories such as “Most Eggs-traordinary” or “The Chickest.” All you need is frosting, coconut dyed with a few drops of green food-coloring, and a variety of candy. Your guests can do the rest.
These ideas should help make this year’s Easter holiday something that “everybunny” will be talking about for years to come. Hop to it!
