Sharing Saturday: Easter Egg Activities

Easter  is tomorrow!  I love this time of year!  Here are a few low-prep ideas you can whip together in just minutes!  First I'll share part of my plans, then I'll share a few ideas from amazing bloggers that I just love!  If you were featured, feel free to grab a button from the right sidebar!

An Easter Treasure Hunt!  My kids love treasure hunts, so when they sit down to breakfast, they will find a note from the Easter Bunny giving them a clue to find the first egg.  That egg will contain a clue to find the next egg.  This will continue until they find about 8 eggs.  Since we are Christian, each egg will also contain a puzzle piece that will (when completed) be a picture of Jesus.  After they put together the puzzle, I will hand them one last egg with a clue in it that leads to their Easter Baskets!

The best part is that you can reuse those plastic eggs to make a new treasure hunt every day!  At least, my kids will be hoping for one!

A Childhood List has instructions to make these fun and easy Dyed Easter Eggs with rubber band resist!  Check it out here!

The Quirky Kitchen has an easy way to use oil to give your dyed eggs a cool, marbleized effect!  Check it out here!

And after the hunts?  Mama Smiles has this brilliant idea to make Fancy Shaker Eggs!  Color, sound, and tactile elements make this a must-do in my book!  Check it out here!

Have fun...and congratulations to these very talented ladies and their kiddos!

and Happy Easter!

I may share at any of these parties!
