Baby and Toddler Easter Snack & Activity Ideas

My daughter is 21m this Easter and I am so looking forward to it! Ive been researching different activites that she can enjoy this year and years to come. Im hoping to make some traditions that she (and future siblings) will remember fondly.

These are just some ideas, she certainly won't be getting all of it!

- Egg Hunt
with picture clues (or just scattered around living room this year)

- Lunch inside plastic eggs (cubed cheese, ham strips, pickle slices, crackers, etc.)
don’t let them hide these!
- Colouring Pages - many on the internet to print off

- Pre-cut Egg Shapes from paper to decorate or colour

- Colour or Decorate hard-boiled eggs (crayons, markers, stickers, etc.) Egg salad for lunch tomorrow!

- Bunny Story Time – bunny & other Easter themed books

- Duck, Duck, Goose

- Paper Mache (watery glue & newspaper) a Balloon & Paint to create a neat Easter Egg (use pinata style if desired)

(do a few days in advance to allow the glue to dry and hype the kids up for Easter!)

- Printables – Mazes, matching games, etc. **See my sidebar on favourite websites that have printables**

- String Egg Decoration- Inflate a balloon. Soak long pieces of string or yarn in glue. Wrap sticky string around the balloon. Allow to dry. If using white string, paint it once dry. Pop the balloon & hang up as a decoration.

Options: Sprinkle with glitter! - Do several small balloons, each in a different string colour. Put in a basket once dry and balloon popped.
