Easter is coming up!

We like to spend the month leading up to Easter trying out a variety of Easter egg decorating ideas (sometimes with blown-out eggs or wooden eggs, sometimes with hard-boiled eggs that we don’t plan to eat), making Easter crafts (our colorful mini baskets were a big hit last year), and doing Easter art activities (back-and-forth Easter egg drawings are one our go-to favorites).

Want some fun ideas for your family for this month?

Here are more than 31 Easter activities—enough for one a day or simply pick and choose a few to try. There’s everything here from awesome Easter egg decorating ideas, the best Easter crafts for kids, simple Easter art activities, some fun ideas to try with egg cartons, and even some egg science!
