  1. These are things to do with the family. We can try it next weekend. Thank you for sharing

    1. Hello Fransic! It’s good to hear you are going to do these Easter activities with your family this weekend. Have a wonderful Easter weekend!!!

  2. I love peanuts especially snoopy. He is my favorite. Such a cute activity.

    1. Hello!!! Glad you’ve enjoyed the Easter activities!!!

  3. Julie says:

    We almost always end up doing diy projects with our whole family. We do small decor pieces and then go in our backyard and decorate it with small chicks and eggs. It’s fun and it keeps the whole family entertained.

    1. Hello Julie! That’s good to hear, it’s always great to do fun things as a family!!!

  4. Love all these ideas Christy that you found for family friend Easter Activities. Plus I love how you remember the reason for the season & found great ideas based on the Sacredness of the Holy-day.
    I do wish though that you had added a few more games. For example, my family at Easter always colored our eggs the night before, then the next morning, we searched for them as my Dad had hid them every year. But then….then we played the Traditional Egg tapping game. Basically you hold your hard-boiled dyed egg and taps the egg of another participant. The goal is to Crack their egg without hurting yours. You get to use both top & bottom of the egg & after the person left with at least 1 side uncracked wins!!

    1. Hello Eric! Thank you for your input and next I will add more family games to the list. It’s good to that you and your family keep a tradition going every year.

  5. Alessandra says:

    This year we’ll be taking it slow, all I want is a good movie and some snacks. Thanks for the recommendations, some of these are news to me.

    1. Hello Alessandra! That sounds like a plan to me, glad I could help you with the recommendations.

  6. Nayeli says:

    We have the Pete the Cat’s Five Little Monkey adaptation. Our daughter absolutely loves that book as we love everything that has to do with Pete, such a wholesome character.
