CHILD INVOLVEMENT IDEAS
- BUNNY HEADBANDS - your children can make Easter Bunny Headbands by gluing paper bunny ears to a 1 ½ inch paper strip. Then place the band around each child’s head and fit to size.
- EASTER HATS – Cut the center out of paper plates. Give one to each child and let them glue some paper or straw flowers around the rim. Place opening over child’s head.
- EGG SHAKERS – Give each child two plastic eggs. Set out some beans. Have the children fill the bottom half of their eggs with beans, then place the tops back on the eggs. CAUTION: If you have any fear the children may try to eat the beans, you could glue or tape the two egg halves together.
- DECORATING EGG SHAPED COOKIES - Give each child one or two plain egg shaped sugar cookies. Let them spread some frosting on their cookies using a small craft stick, then shake on some colorful sprinkles.
- Place some small prizes inside some plastic eggs.
- Hide the eggs in your yard.
- Have your children hunt until they find two eggs.
- Cut out a number of heavy paper egg shapes (in different colors).
- Cut each egg into two puzzle pieces.
- Give each child half of a puzzle piece.
- The game is for the children to search among the other children to find the child who has the other half of their colored egg shape.
- When they find their partner, they win a small treat in their egg color.
WHERE IS THE CHOCOLATE EGG?
- Have the children sit on the floor in a circle.
- Choose one child to sit in the middle.
- Have the rest of the children place their hands behind their backs.
- Walk around the outside of the circle and pretend to place a small chocolate wrapped egg in each of their hands. In reality, you only put an egg in 2-3 of the children’s hands.
- The child in the middle gets one guess to guess who has the chocolate egg.
- If he guesses correctly, he gets the chocolate egg and swaps seats with the other child.
- Continue the game until everyone has a chocolate egg.
- Give each child a small spoon and a plastic egg.
- Have the children place the egg on the spoon and take turns running across the room (or yard) to a specific place without dropping the eggs.
- The children who make it without dropping their eggs, win a small prize.
- The other children, get another chance to play the game but this time instead of running, have the children take giant steps. (Hopefully, they will all make it to the spot this time without dropping their egg.)
