Easter is a great time to celebrate with your family, and there are plenty of great Easter activities for families. Whether you’re a group who loves being in the kitchen, you want something a little more active, or you’re happy to snuggle up on the couch and throw on a movie, these family Easter activities will have you feeling the joy of the holiday, even during these difficult and uncertain times.
Cook a meal
What brings people together more than food? Nothing! Get the whole family in the kitchen and create the perfect Easter meal. It’ll taste so much better knowing you all made it together, and each person can feel the accomplishment of having helped the meal come together. If you’re not feeling like going out to do a grocery shop, place an order for Toptable2U – a take-away menu of housemade provisions, prepped meal kits for at home cooking, and farm-to-table produce selections curated by the chefs at Toptable Group. Or if you’re feeling more of a classic holiday dinner, place an order for Earls Restaurant Easter Dinner Kit – fully-loaded with pre-portioned ingredients ready for you to cook at home. You’ll get enough fixins’ for the whole family: Ham, dijon maple glaze, mashed potatoes, asparagus, dinner rolls, and four slices of NYC cheesecake.
Bake something sweet
A tasty dinner isn’t the only thing your family can make in the kitchen. Why not try a new dessert recipe that will be just as fun to make as it will be to eat? Or, better yet, pick two Easter desserts and divide the family into teams to see which recipe everyone likes better. The biggest face-off of the season could be between Team Cookies and Team Cake. It’s all fun and games when dessert is involved.
Get creative with a craft
Crafting is a great way to relax and to really tap into your imagination. Bring the whole family around the kitchen table for an afternoon filled with creativity and crafting. With everyone together working on their own projects, it can be a nice time to have fun family conversations. Having a fun activity that brings everyone together is a great way to foster conversation and get people to open up about their lives and their memories.

Have an Easter egg hunt
Easter egg hunts are the classic, tried and true Easter activity. If you’re at home with family, organize a hunt that the whole family can participate in. If you have family or friends who aren’t with you who would like to participate, set up a virtual Easter egg hunt. This activity is great because it gets people moving, it allows people to feel adventurous, and it always results in a little bit of candy or chocolate for everyone. Any game that ends in chocolate is one we want to play. Order your candy supply from Rocky Mountain Chocolate, Daniel Chocolate’s, or The Candy Room via UberEats!
Whatever you choose to do on Easter, spending time with your family is a great way to celebrate the holiday!
