25 Easter Party Ideas for Kids

Throw an Easter party to remember with crafts, activities, and eggsperiments for kids. Fill hollowed out Easter eggs with confetti and let the kids smash them on the floor. Set up an obstacle course that must be completed while keeping an egg steady on the spoon the entire time (eek!). You will definitely find us playing egg bocce ball in the front yard come Easter Sunday.
