Easter’s a great time for fun celebrations with the family. This year, as you fill the baskets with all kinds of goodies, consider some different and creative ways to keep your favorite little’s entertained and happy!
Probably one of the most easy and entertaining gifts that can keep kids occupied for hours on end. Plus – there’s always something new to explore with crayons and the imagination!
Board games or activity sets…there’s an endless array of great games the offer fun for the whole family.
Set aside 15 minutes a day for your kids to have art-time. Let their imaginations run wild and draw whatever they want or let everyone choose a subject matter each day.
Local craft stores offer all types of crafting activities for all ages. Don’t forget to involve parents and grandparents in these wonderful bonding moments, too.
5. Kids Family Portrait
Bring on the canvas, paints and pens and let your kids express themselves artistically! Asking your kids to interpret a family portrait creates a great keepsake or a special feature for the mantelpiece.
6. Choose Your Dinner or Lunch Coupons
Create fun coupons where your kids get to choose the family meal.
7. Personalized Stationery
Kids are never too young to have a personalized pad of paper or some notecards. Make it extra special and create the personalization yourself!
Large piece puzzles for toddles and smaller piece puzzles for older kids offer great activities for quiet time.
