Easter is almost here, and that means it’s time to pull out the craft supplies and cooking utensils. After all, Easter just wouldn’t be Easter without egg hunts, sweet treats, and pastel bunnies, and these things don’t just appear out of the blue.
Fortunately, your Easter fun doesn’t have to be an ordeal. In fact, there are tons of adorable, yet simple crafts, recipes, and game ideas out there. Because we know how valuable those easy peasy ideas can be, we’ve gathered a list of our top 4 super simple Easter fun ideas.
Egg Hunt Pudding Cups
This super easy snack idea is sure to be a hit with all pudding lovers. To make, place half a cup of shredded coconut into a zipper baggie with 2-3 drops of green food coloring and shake the bag until all coconut is covered. Open 4 pudding snack cups and top each one with the green coconut “grass”. Place 2-3 candy eggs on the top of each cup and serve.
Glow in the Dark Egg Hunt
For nighttime fun that even the adults will enjoy, put together a glow in the dark egg hunt. Start with several dozen plastic Easter eggs. Place one activated mini glow stick in each egg and snap them shut. Hide the eggs outside in the late evening and go for an egg hunt in the dark.
Paper Plate Bunny Masks
If you’re looking for a super simple craft that kids can do almost entirely alone, you’ll likely love these masks. Begin by cutting the center out of a plain white paper plate. This will be the face hole. After the cutting is finished, let the kids go to town with a pair of construction paper bunny ears, some pipe cleaner whiskers, and a popsicle stick for holding the mask up.
Rice crispy treats are delicious no matter what shape they come in. That said, egg shaped treats are always the best option, especially around Easter.
If you’d like to make your own egg shaped rice crispy treats, grease the insides of several plastic eggs and set aside. Next, mix 6 cups of crisp rice cereal with 4 cups melted marshmallows and 3 tablespoons melted butter. Place the mixture inside the greased eggs, making sure to fill both sides completely and snapping the eggs shut. Allow the treats to set for at least 2 hours before removing from the eggs.
To finish, add icing decorations and enjoy!
These easy ideas are sure to make the days leading up to Easter a blast without a ton of effort on your part. Considering how much work being a homeschool parent can be, this is always a good thing.
