How Can you Make Easter Enjoyable For Your Little One?
How do you make Easter more fun for toddlers and younger children? By having some really fun activities for them to take part in.
Below you’ll find some of our favourites that we have found:
Easter Sensory Bin
“I knew without a shadow of a doubt that my kids would love this bin and love it for days. Why? Because TODDLERS LOVE RICE BINS.
And I set this bin up faster than you can say ”“Hippity Hop Easter’s on its way.””
Reusable Easter eggs
Rice (optional: dye it rainbow-coloured)
Empty egg carton(s)”
Thanks to Busy Toddler for this great idea! You can read more about it here.
Cereal Box Feed the Bunny Colour Game for Kids
Kristina from Toddler Approved says “To tie in with our Easter theme this week for our A Very Toddler Easter series I thought we could Feed the Bunny! We grabbed our handy dandy bucket of lids and had a blast!
Get started by hunting down a big cereal box. If you don’t eat cereal, find a cardboard box that you want to turn into a bunny. Cereal boxes are way easier to cut, so I prefer those, but more sturdy cardboard boxes are better if your toddler is of a more destructive nature… so pick your poison.”
A big thanks to Toddler Approved for this fun idea. You can hop over and check it out here.

Paper Plate Easter Chick Craft for Toddlers
My Bored Toddler says “We are keeping this craft nice and simple, with a ‘finished’ product at the end that they will be proud to show off. With all of our toddler crafts, don’t worry too much if you’re toddler wants to get a little creative and make it different. Let them use blue paint or purple feathers if they want. It’s all about getting them excited about crafts and involved in the activity. The finished product is just a bonus…
These chicks are not only adorable but seriously easy to make. You probably have most of the materials at home already.”
Suncatcher Easter Eggs Craft
“Suncatcher Easter Eggs are a great kids’ craft idea. This project is easy enough for them to do with minimal supervision and can make a great gift idea. Keeping the kids busy creating is a great way to keep them out of the kitchen while you prepare Easter dinner. These Suncatcher Easter Eggs come together quickly with our free egg printable template and are easy enough for the kids to do on their own.”
