Decorate Easter Eggs
Easter eggs are a holiday staple around this time of year. What better way to get the celebration started than with decorative eggs of your own? Check out these decoration tutorials and let the fun begin!
An exciting activity is a great idea for your Easter Sunday celebration. Check out this tutorial for bunny bowling pins, and let the games begin!
You’ll need: Wood bowling pins, white paint (wood-friendly), paint brush, solid white paper, scissors, permanent markers, glue
Step 1: Paint all of the bowling pins with white paint.
Step 2: Once the pins have dried, use the permanent markers to draw bunny faces and onto the pins.
Step 3: Take the white paper and cut out long bunny ears. Use a colored marker to create the inside of the ears. Then, use the glue to attach the bunny ears to your bunny pins.
Step 4: After the glue has completely dried, set the pins up and get ready to play!
Confetti Egg Fight
Have fun with family and friends by adding a confetti egg fight to your holiday to-do list!
You’ll need: Raw eggs, colored egg dye, glitter, confetti, tissue paper, glue, sewing pin, scissors
Step 1: Use your sewing pin to create a medium sized hole in the egg. Then, allow the yolk to drain from the hole. (If the yolk is coming out too slowly, poke a hole at the opposite end of the egg and blow through it to encourage the yolk to drain more quickly.)
Step 2: Rinse the egg shell carefully, but thoroughly. After rinsing, allow it to dry.
Step 3: Use the dye to color the eggshell. Be sure to fill it with dye so that the egg shell will stay submerged and have the ability to color completely. Once colored, allow the egg shell to dry.
Step 4: Cut a piece of tissue paper that’s slightly larger than the hole in the egg’s shell.
Step 5: Fill the egg about halfway with glitter or confetti. Once filled, glue the tissue paper circle in place to cover the hole.
Step 6: Repeat this process for as many eggs as you need. Once the glue has dried on all of the eggs, prepare for battle!
Kid-Friendly Egg Toss
Small kids can get in on the competitive fun, too! Host a kid-friendly egg toss. This event is super simple, and its lots of fun for the little ones.
You’ll need: Colorful plastic eggs, candy, buckets.
Step 1: Fill all of the plastic eggs with candy.
Step 2: Separate the eggs by color and divvy them up evenly between children. (Consider assigning each child a color so that they can better determine which eggs are theirs if they happen to miss the bucket.)
Step 3: Inform the kids of the game rules and get ready to play!
