We’re putting the “ease” in “Easter” (It’s in there…really. You just have to hunt a bit!) with these 4 Easter-inspired activities from our blog to help you get ready for the holiday in two shakes of a bunny’s tail.

1. Last-Minute Easter Bookmarks

Cut two small, red potatoes in half, and you’ve got four canvases for kids to create their own Easter egg potato stamps. They’ll have a blast carving out their own patterns: polka dots, stripes, waves — the sky’s the limit. Use the egg-shaped stamps to decorate paper, then cut out a rectangle, punch a hole, and tie on a ribbon. PRESTO — Last-minute hand-made Easter bookmarks!

4.  Number Hunt Fun

The fun doesn’t have to end when Easter is over. Re-create the “thrill of the hunt” by sending your child on a Number Hunt anytime. But this is not just any Number Hunt — This hunt has loads of variations for every age and ability (equations, maps, odds ’n evens, spelled-out numbers, and more). Have children race each other to see who finds the most numbers or compete against themselves in a timed hunt!
