Easter is a time to celebrate the blessings of joy, love, and peace – a perfect time to connect with your family. If you’re looking for ways to bond with your family this Easter, we’ve got you covered! Intergenerational gaps should not limit the way you bond with your grandchildren too. With these four activities to do for Easter that are appropriate across all ages, you can relive your childhood traditions while creating new memories for your loved ones!
Easter Egg Painting Session
Decorating Easter eggs is a go-to Easter tradition. Make this activity more meaningful by incorporating a Secret Santa concept – get your loved ones to make a personalized Easter egg with their giftee’s name painted on it! Everyone will be able to walk away with their very own egg that’s specially made for them. You can also assist your grandchildren when painting the eggs, and work on creating an egg that is uniquely theirs.
Host an Easter Egg Hunt
Easter egg hunts are another tradition for Easter, and for good reason! Excite your loved ones with this fun activity that can be conducted in your backyard. Pair up the adults with the children and get them to look for as many Easter eggs as they can within a certain timespan. For adults who are less nimble, don’t fret! You can participate by keeping count of the number of eggs found or giving the children clues about where the easter eggs could be hidden. This activity can facilitate communication between the adults and the children, and improve their rapport while having a good time.
Bake and Decorate Cookies
Children love to pretend to be grownups, and allowing them to help out in the kitchen is one way they can show just how grown up they can be! Bake some cookies with your grandchildren this Easter! You’ll be able to spend quality time with them through this activity. For convenience’s sake, you can also drop by your nearby grocery store for some plain cookies and icing, and let your grandchildren decorate the cookies! They will not only have fun but also develop their motor skills. Let’s not forget the biggest boon where they’ll get a tasty reward at the end! And who knows, your grandchildren might love this activity so much that they’ll ask you to make festive baking a family tradition.
Host an Egg-and-Spoon Race
An Egg-and-Spoon Race would likely be a hit among the adults. A popular sporting event that goes way back, this simple yet entertaining game will surely appeal to all ages. Moreover, all you need is a spoon and an egg. The participant who reaches the finish line first without dropping the egg is the winner. For those with limited mobility, the game can easily be adapted to include them. For example, the referee could get the players to move their arms in different directions while holding the egg with their spoon, and the one who manages to hold on to their egg the longest will win.
