Easter is a time almost all families get together and spend time with each other. No matter what you and your family are like, sharing time together can make any holiday a little brighter.
There are a lot of Easter celebrations out there, this can make it hard to know where to look for something new and exciting. Luckily, there are so many great places to go this Easter that aren’t the same old, cookie-cutter Easter activities.
Here are 15 creative ideas that you can incorporate into your Easter holiday without breaking the bank:
#1 Go Egg Hunting
Easter is all about the cute, colourful eggs and hunting down as many as you can get. Why not try hunting for something else? You may be surprised at what you can find. You can try looking for Easter eggs in your own backyard, in the park, or in the local library. You can even look for eggs while you’re out and about in your community. If you’re looking for something a little more out of the ordinary, why not look for eggs that have an interesting story behind them? You can find some truly amazing things while you’re out looking for eggs.
#2 Host A Board Game Night
If you’re looking for something a little more traditional this Easter, why not host a board game night at your home? This is a great way to bring your family closer together and get everyone excited about their favourite board games. You can choose any games that you would like to play, from name-brand games to games that are a little more unique. You don’t have to have a big board game night at all. You can also try having a board game night at a local restaurant, your friend’s house, or even at a local coffee shop.
#3 Explore A Theme Park
If you’re looking for a fun activity that your entire family can enjoy, try visiting a theme park for Easter. There are tons of Easter-themed parks out there, so you’re bound to find one that is perfect for your family. These parks are a great place to celebrate the spring season and get on a little adventure. Not only are there fun activities like hayrides, egg hunts, and other games, but there are also rides and attractions that are designed to celebrate the holiday. You can also explore the interior of the park, as many of these places have special Easter decorations and displays.
#4 Do Something With Your Kids
If you’re looking for something that is fun, different, and active this Easter, try doing something with your kids. This could be anything from making an origami nest to going on a hike. You can also try exploring some local parks or the outdoors to get in some active time. You could also try doing something creative, like making a paper plate rabbit or something else that your kids can be creative with. Doing something creative with your kids is a great way to get to know each other better and turn Easter into a family activity that everyone can enjoy.
#5 Bake Easter Candy With Your Kids

This is a great way to get in some craft time with them, while also eating some delicious candy. You can try making a standard Easter candy like eggs, or you can get a little more creative with your flavours. You can also try making something that you can eat right away or store in a jar or bowl and enjoy as the season changes.
#6 Plan An Outdoor Lunch With Your Family
If you’re looking for a fun family activity that is also low-key, try planning an outdoor lunch. You can do this while you’re outside doing something fun like hiking or around a campfire. You can also try going to a local park or heading to a local beach. This is a great way to enjoy some family time and make the most of the outdoors. Next time there is an outdoor event happening near you, try heading to it for lunch. This is a great way to get in some food for thought too. Whether you’re at a farmers market or at the park, there are so many great things to learn from the outdoors.
#7 Visit a Zoo for Easter
There’s no doubt that Easter is a celebration of the spring season, which is why zoos are often the go-to place for many families. While the majority of zoos will be celebrating Easter by giving programs on the pagan origins of this holiday, some will still be open for the rest of the year for an Easter celebration.
If you have children who love animals but don’t have time for a trip to the zoological gardens, then you can still celebrate the season by visiting a local zoo. There’s nothing better than cuddling up with your family and petting some animals, or even feeding the ducks at the pond.
#8 Join a Nature Walk
No matter what your family’s interests are, there’s bound to be a nature walk you can join. If your family loves nature and hasn’t yet taken advantage of the great outdoors during the season, you can join a walk that’s open to the public. The beauty of this is you can celebrate the season without leaving the confines of your home or the city.
So, whether you want to visit your local park and enjoy some spring weather, or do a walk in the country, you can celebrate the season with nature.
#9 Plan a sleepover
A sleepover is a great way to get the kids excited about spring and to spend quality time with them. Most sleepovers will include board games, movies, snacks, and more.
