9 April - A Housebound Easter
Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com, and this week is all about Easter.
First, happy Easter! Whether you celebrate Easter or not, these fun Easter activities, crafts and recipes are sure to put you in a festive mood. All these activities are simple and require minimal equipment, most of which you likely already have in your house (perfect for lockdown).
The family: Fred is a headstrong 3 year old toddler boy, and Sarah is my sweet 1 year old baby girl.
New Easter traditions
I like this idea of creating new Easter traditions. This year I’m going to have my kids set out carrots and milk for the Easter bunny, and I’m going to print bunny feet to make a trail showing where the Easter bunny walked.
DIY Easter baskets
You just need paper plates, paint and a ribbon of some sort to make these cute DIY Easter baskets.
Instead of the chicken, you can also make a simple white and pink bunny, or an easter egg. These baskets are very handy for when it comes to storing Easter eggs from an indoor hunt.
No bake peanut butter Easter cookies
These no-bake Easter cookies are so healthy (except for the Easter eggs on top), that I’d serve it for an Easter breakfast.
I like that it is a no bake recipe that you can quickly whip together. It’s also a great recipe to get the kids in the kitchen helping.
Healthy Easter menu
Anyone can make and enjoy these delicious recipes low carb Easter recipes.
I like low carb recipes because they are low in sugar, and high in healthy ingredients (including fat).
This Easter menu contains lots of yummy brunch, dinner, side dish, and dessert recipes - all very healthy in my opinion.
Indoor Easter scavenger hunt
These Easter egg clues are just too cute, and so handy for doing an indoor Easter egg hunt (with your DIY Easter basket).
The post also includes alternatives to chocolate Easter eggs.
Easter chick painting activity
You just need some yellow paint (I’m going to make finger paint myself since I don’t have paint at hand), a fork and some optional extras, such as googly eyes to do this cute chick painting craft.
Easter egg sort (free printable)
Not only is this Easter egg sort activity beautiful, but it also teaches your child about big vs small.
Just print out these Easter eggs, laminate them (optional), and give them to your child to sort.
It includes 20 big and 20 small Easter eggs, and a sorting page to sort them. You can also use these egg prints as part of a scavenger hunt.
