10 Meaningful and Fun Easter Ideas For Families

For our family Easter is a very important time. It’s more than just Easter eggs and baskets. It all about Jesus and as a mom I take it very seriously. I am always looking for ways to make it meaningful and fun for our family.

Come see 10 of my favorite ideas!

1. Scripture Eggs

This is a fun and meaningful activity that we have done in our home for as long as I can remember! You probably have all of the supplies on hand already! You can read all about it here!

2. Kid Friendly Easter Table

This year I found that I had some extra time on my hands and decided that I wanted to create a kid friendly Easter table for my own kids. I found items around my house that I already had and ended up coming up with a Peter Rabbit themed table. Creating tables for kids can be fun and easy…they usually have all the supplies you need. Think stuffed animals, books, paper plates, special dishes, and maybe even decor from their rooms! You can see the full table here!

3. Easter Countdown Cards

This is a great family activity if you have younger children. I have followed Crew + Co over on Instagram for awhile now and every year I mean to order their beautiful Easter cards and every year I always forget.

So this year I finally ordered, late but it payed off because they are currently on sale! So I bought two sets and plan to give one to my sister. I love how these cards follow a 14 day countdown to Easter while including daily readings from the Jesus Storybook Bible! Perfect for little hearts and hands. Order them by March 21st to be in time for Easter this year.

I also love these Along With Jesus Lent Activity Cards from my friend Maggie over at She Pens Truth! These are beautiful cards to enjoy with your family and you can print them at home. They go along with her Easter Devotional that I have enjoyed these past couple of years.

4. Easter Basket Hostess Gift Ideas 

This year many of us will finally be heading out for Easter to our friends or family’s homes this year and this idea is one you can use any Easter. Why not bring your host or hostess a gift basket ? Just think about what they love and enjoy and add a few of those things. It doesn’t have to be expensive to be thoughtful! Find some more details as well as the full post here.

5. Rae Dunn and Jadeite Easter Tablescape

I love all things jadeite and I still love Rae Dunn! So I decided to combine two of my loves to create a very fun and casual Easter tablescape. Do you go fancy or casual for your Easter table? Come take a peek at my table!

6. Resurrection Eggs

This is a tradition close to my heart. We have these same eggs and we use them every year! I love listening to my kids open each egg and read the Easter story about Jesus and his resurrection. This kid friendly tradition is not only fun and meaningful, but one I highly recommend! You can find them here!

7. Free Printable Easter Tags

I shared these beautiful Easter tags on the blog last year in collaboration with my talented friend Katie of Create&Capture! She created not one, but two different sets of editable floral gift tags that you can grab in my printables library if you are a subscriber! I put my password at the bottom of every email I send out if you need it. If you aren’t a subscriber and would love to have access to these floral gift tags you can SUBSCRIBE HERE!

8. Whipped Cream Easter Eggs

This next activity definitely falls in the fun category. We tried this alternative to dying Easter eggs and had so much fun! It was great being together as a family, laughing and making memories and yes, they were messy, but boy did they turn out beautiful! You can find all the details over at the Passion for Savings blog.

9. Easter Basket Tags

These personalized wooden Easter tags might just be one of my all time favorite Etsy purchases! Seriously though, the makers at Two Daughters Heirlooms shop made these and they are gorgeous! I love them, my girls love and I know you will love them too. You can shop their tags by visiting here!

Having a kid friendly Easter table is always a fun idea! Check out these tips.

You can shop my Tween and Teen Easter Basket Ideas as well as my Easter basket Ideas For Young Girls for fun ideas to fill up your Easter baskets this year.

This one is for my local friends! One of my favorite local cookie companies, Sugar Mill Treats, is offering Easter Cookie Decorating Kits and paint your own sugar cookie kits. I think both of these are fun ideas for families this Easter.

She also has several other darling options for Easter as well as custom order spots. We have loved her cookies on many different occasions and can’t rave about them enough. The best part is she is offering porch pick up. So convenient! I love supporting small businesses and this one is no exception!

Then I was wishing I could host a party just so someone would bring me a basket idea like that and then you had to go and who us the cookie kits. Oh my soul! I want to make those. So fun! Glad you shared these. Pinned! Hope y’all have a wonderful Easter!

  7. What sweet ideas, especially the scripture eggs. Even though it is just my husband and I, perhaps I should do that to lift our spirits at this difficult time. May you find joyful moments in this Easter season and stay well and safe.

  8. Love all your ideas, Kelly. I’m gonna need to get those Easter cards for NEXT year! Kind of like an Easter advent! We have done the Scripture eggs for over 25 years now… started when my son was a little one! Great tradition! And your hostess basket is a lovely idea, too… you could do that for any season! Pinned!

    1. Thank you Julie! The scripture eggs have been my favorite too. I am looking for to the Easter cards next year as well! I agree, It’s just like an advent countdown! Thanks for stopping by friend!

  10. Kelly, what a terrific and clever roundup of ideas! Even though my sons are grown and there’s no grandchildren on the horizon, I’m pinning this for future reference. I was especially intrigued by your table ideas — spying Peter Rabbit incorporated into one. Loved it because my Beatrix Potter figurines are too fragile to trust to little fingers.
