The Best Family Easter Activities

For many families, Easter is one of the biggest holidays of the year. It means warmer weather, gathering with loved ones, playing games with the kids, and of course, decorating Easter eggs. We love a good reason to celebrate, and when it comes to Easter, there are many special ways to do so – from home and family crafts to dressing up for photos.

Read on for a roundup of what to do on Easter with the family this season, including at-home art projects for kids, precious wardrobe options, and more.


Family Easter Activities to Do at Home

Easter is associated with many bright and joyful activities. Whether your family looks forward to Easter egg coloring and hunting or designing beautiful baskets brimming with treats and goodies, there are tons of festive fun (and family-friendly) games, crafts, and more to take part in.

While chocolate bunnies, Peeps, and other candies are Easter basket mainstays, we recommend thinking outside the box – or basket, as the case may be. We love including unexpected and personalized items in Easter baskets, such as books, sidewalk chalk, small toys, socks, and other sweet accessories.

Decorating Easter eggs is another one of our favorite traditional Easter festivities. While this is a great Easter activity for children, why should they get to have all the fun? Dying, coloring, and drawing on Easter eggs is a wonderful activity for both the young and the young at heart.

And regardless of how many guests you’re expecting this year, why not decorate like you’re hosting a big Easter party? Your house will feel festive whether your guest list is limited to immediate family or you’re expecting a bigger crowd. 

Another fun activity to do in the weeks leading up to Easter that doubles as one of our go-to easy crafts for kids at home? Make your own Easter cards to send to loved ones. While these are sure to brighten anyone’s day, they’ll be especially welcome by those who may be homebound this Easter. This activity also keeps little hands busy while you're cooking, cleaning, and preparing for the holiday.

This brings us to one of our all-time top Easter traditions: the Easter egg hunt. While many communities hold their own festivities at parks, schools, and churches, there’s nothing better than a backyard hunt you’ve organized yourself. Plus, Easter is a sign of spring and the perfect occasion to get outside in the fresh air. And don’t worry – if the weather isn’t cooperating, an indoor hunt can be equally entertaining (especially if you get creative about hiding spots).

What to Wear to Easter this Year

Speaking of making your own Easter cards, you’ll want to have some cute photos to tuck inside the envelope, right? Not to mention, taking joyful Easter photos is a beloved holiday family tradition. This means you’ll need the perfect outfits for your family, and we have the most precious Easter Collection for you to pick from.

From sundresses and sweaters to rompers and swing top sets, cardigans, bubbles, and more, we have Easter styles and wardrobe pieces that are truly darling. Little boys (and boy moms!) can also get in on the Easter fun staples with polos, pants, shorts, button-ins, and more. Plus, the act of getting dressed up can make a holiday feel even more special.

A few of our favorite looks for girls this Easter include the sunny Georgia Bubble featuring a charming Peter Pan collar, the oh-so-sweet Grace Dress, and the chic Blanche Romper. For boys, we’re smitten with the darling Finn Pima Romper, our versatile Chapman Buttondown Shirt in a variety of cheerful colors, and the personality-packed Bow Tie in Daisy Floral
