What can kids do for Easter at home? Here are 60 Easter Activities for Kids. If you are like me, you are looking for simple (and easy) Easter ideas that can help add a little excitement to your daily routine. It has been proven (by me, your friend, and a mom of three who blogs on the internet) that fresh ideas for spring bring a little more sunshine into the day, even when that final snowstorm is melting on your driveway.
So before the bunny comes hopping in with the Easter basket of goodies, let’s take down the mitten pictures and swap them out for bunnies, Easter eggs, and lambs.

Let’s keep Easter ideas simple (and fun!)
I am not one to spend much prep time on activities I have for my children. Instead, I look for Easter activities and crafts that encourage the process over the final product.
I organized this roundup of Easter ideas into FIVE categories with that thought in mind. From toddler activities to entertaining preschoolers.
THE 411 OF ROUNDUPS: Each link will take you to an activity to help make your rabbit hole search on Pinterest easier. The titles explain what you will find when you hop over to another blog for the idea. New activities will open in a different tab, so you will still have this original list to bounce back to in your browser.
Inside this Easter activity for kids roundup, you will find:
- Simple Easter Games
- Easy Easter Sensory Bins
- Easter Art Activities
- Fun Easter Egg Decorating Ideas
- Family Games for Easter
RELATED: As the weather warms up, you’ll want to pin this outdoor activity list to circle back to over the next few months.

Growing up, Easter baskets always included more candy than I could count. But with a food allergy, we need non-food ideas for Easter basket ideas. Sticker books, sketch pads, watercolor paints, markers, sidewalk chalk, kinetic sand, memory games, and bathing suits make terrific Easter basket ideas for kids.
