Easter is a time to celebrate with family and carry on traditions that have been passed down for generations. But why not start some new and unique traditions that your family can enjoy each year?
Here are 11 fun and creative Easter traditions for families with kids. Let's get cracking!
Easter Egg Decorating Contest
Gather your family and friends and host an Easter egg decorating contest. Set up a station with hard-boiled eggs, dyes, stickers, and other decorations, and let everyone create their own unique egg designs. Award prizes for the most creative, the most colorful, and the funniest eggs.
Egg blowing is a super cool Easter tradition we used to do when we were kids. Y Take a needle and poke a hole into the top and the bottom of the egg, making the bottom hole slightly bigger than the top one. Hold the egg over your bowl, bottom facing down, blow gently into the smaller hole and the egg will slide out through the larger hole. Then, rinse it out and decorate it however you like - paint it, glue stuff on it, go nuts! Egg blowing is a fun activity the whole fam can do together, and it'll make your Easter decorations extra special.
Easter Family and Friends Trivia
Go through your My Friends and I book and pick 10 interesting answers from family members and friends who signed the book. Then, ask the questions to those answers and whoever guesses the right answer first wins a prize!
Fill an Easter-themed piñata with candy and small toys, and let your children take turns trying to break it open. This is a great way to add some excitement to your Easter celebration.
Easter Movie Night
Host an Easter-themed movie night with your family. Watch classic Easter movies like Hop, Peter Rabbit, or It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown while snacking on popcorn and Easter candy.
Easter Fun Stations
Set up stations with different activities that need to be completed within a specific timeframe. For each completed task, participants earn points or need to write down their answer(s).

The team that scores the most points and gets the most answers right wins.
