Check out a huge collection of over 50 Easter egg activities for kids of all ages to try.
So, I have to admit something.
I get overwhelmed with all of the amazing ideas that are out there for Easter! Is that just me? Okay, maybe it is just me.
I’m usually very much a Type B person. Just ask my friends. Or my sister. Wait, don’t do that. You don’t need to hear all of those stories!
But the early childhood teacher in me came out to deal with all of the fun ideas I had saved for Easter. I figured I’d share it with you. Maybe you want things organized into categories and all ready to go, too.
If so, enjoy over 50 Easter egg activities to try with the kids this spring!
Now I just have to figure out which ideas to try first. Oh well, can’t win them all!
