Easter is right around the corner, and if you are celebrating it with your kids, you’re probably planning all the fun activities and gifts that are a part of this special holiday. For little ones, the thought of getting a visit from the Easter Bunny can be more exciting than candy or presents, and becoming the Easter Bunny for them is equally exciting for you. But how do parents do the Easter Bunny? Is there a set tradition, like Santa coming down the chimney with a bag of presents? Or do most of us just DIY it? Somehow Easter always feels a bit less prescribed than Christmas — at least in our home — and it also seems to sneak up, since the date moves around. We’ve rounded up some easy Easter Bunny idea for parents, as well as some fun “Easter Bunny was here” ideas, too, for the real overachievers out there.
Sure your egg hunts, egg coloring activities, and Easter baskets will take center stage on Easter. For younger kids, it’s really easy to come up with tons of imaginative ideas on how to make it seem like the Easter Bunny really did make a stop at your house. But if you have older children, you may need to be a little extra creative to pull off the magic.
For some tried and true Easter fun for kids of all ages, here are some magical ideas from parents on how they do the Easter Bunny and create those sweet traditions.
Have fun with Easter magic and don’t forget to fill those baskets with plenty of candy — because we know what the kids are really excited about on Easter morning, and it’s definitely the basket full of sugary treats.
