Easter is one of our favourite times of the year. The weather is finally starting to improve and especially on years when Easter falls later we can be found heading to the beach or enjoying eating outside with the family. Because it’s a favourite time of the year we have lots of different ideas we’ve tried over the years to celebrate Easter with the kids. From when they were toddlers we have included both cute bunnies and chicks as well as teaching them some of the true meaning behind the Christmas Easter Celebrations. If you are looking for Easter Crafts, Activities to do with the Kids or Recipes then look no further here’s our Best Easter Activities, Crafts and Recipes for Families with kids of all ages.
Family Friendly Easter Activities, Crafts and Recipes
Whether you decorate the house and host Easter Lunch or host an Easter Egg Hunt for their kids and their friends there are so many different ideas you could do. Check out our favourites below.
Easter Activities and Crafts for Babies
The first Easter may fall when you baby is just a few days old or you may almost have a one year old. However, it is still your babies first Easter Celebration. Chocolate Easter eggs and bunnies aren’t really going to go down well. So whether it is your own baby or you are celebrating the first Easter with a friend’s baby check out our ideas below for Easter with Babies.
Looking for ways to make the first Easter memorable or even capture the moments check out our Ideas for Celebrating Babies First Easter which includes great tips including some ever so cute little handmade Easter baby clothes to dress up your little ones.
Instead of filling an Easter basket with chocolates or toys for your baby. Why not put in some Easter books to encourage a love of reading from an early age. We have a fantastic selection of Easter Books for babies and toddlers ideal for reading together.
Toddler and Preschool Easter Activities and Crafts
With toddlers and preschoolers you can start to add in more activities and crafts we have loved getting creative with the little ones as well as using the theme of Easter for some themed hands-on learning. Check out our Easter Activities and Crafts for Toddlers and Preschoolers below.

One of my favourite Easter traditions with kids is to hold an Easter Bonnet Parade. It’s so much fun to sit down and create a hat for your little one to wear for Easter.

Do you want to teach your kids a bit about the Easter Story then why not read an Easter Story Book and then create some Easter Story Stones with them and use them to retell the story. They would also make great decor for your Easter table.
Easter Activities to Learn with
I’m a firm believer in creating themed activities where possible when helping your children learn. As a teacher, I used to focus on themes at a time and when I taught my little ones before they went to school themed activities were always the best. If you are a teacher, homeschooler or parent then these Easter Activities to Learn with are great for kids of different ages. Check them out below.
Our Easter Themed 100 Chart is great for kids that are working on counting up to 100 as well as those working on addition. It’s a bit like Snakes and Ladders but you can print it out and use it with your kids.
If your kids are looking to work on those Number bonds then our Easter Hatching Chicks Number Bond Printable game is great for downloading and printing out for you and them to use.
It’s spring-themed but those little chicks are great for Easter too – this Birds Nest Math Activity is great for some hands-on addition and subtraction work with your reception and kinder aged kids at Easter time.
For your preschoolers why not introduce number sentences with this Fun Easter Math game for Chicks and Easter Eggs.
