Easter party ideas for kids
If it’s warm enough, consider setting up your Easter party for kids outside, so they can play in the sun. If you don’t have a yard, you could hold the fete at a nearby park.

Drinks

Mango or peach juice is a perfect drink for kids on Easter Sunday — healthy and easy.


Food

Research recipes for sweet treats shaped like eggs and bunnies for finger food that feels extra special. If you’re looking for snacks that aren’t as sugary, you could arrange a veggie tray in the shape of a bunny head or painted easter egg.


Games and activities

Keep your Easter games and activities for kids lively by including an active element, since sitting in one place gets boring after too long:

  • Pin the tail on the bunny. Like pin-the-tail on the donkey…but it’s a bunny.
  • Hunt for Easter eggs. It’s classic for a reason. Hide eggs throughout your house and yard, and see which kid can find the most.
  • Paint Easter Eggs.Make your life easier by getting a kit from your local craft store or Target, Walmart, Amazon, Etsy.
  • Decorate Easter cookies.Bake sugar cookies in the shape of eggs, bunnies and tulips, then have the kiddos decorate them with pastel-colored frosting.
  • Read a story.Have the kids gather in a circle and read an Easter book or Bible story.
  • Color placements. Print some Easter-themed placements from the Internet, with fun outlines for them to color in.
  • Hold a bunny hop sack race. Get burlap bags from your local coffee roaster or order them on Amazon.
  • Make bunny sock puppets. All you need is some old socks, googly eyes, ribbon and scraps of fabric.

Easter party ideas for adults

Since it happens on a Sunday, Easter parties tend to be mellow occasions, less about high times and late nights and more about being together, ringing in spring and enjoying some sweet treats.

Drinks

Use champagne or sweet white wine and fruit juice to come up with an Easter punch for grown-ups. Set some fruit juice aside in case you have guests who want to stay sober. Garnish with fresh fruit, like pineapples and orange slices.


Food

At an Easter party for adults, think hot cross buns, Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies, accompanied by springtime lamb. Ham is another popular favorite. You could even spin the theme a bit with a carrot cake for dessert.

You can also feed guests:

  • Spiked peeps. You can make these from scratch using the liquor of your choice.
  • Peep s’mores bar. Roast ’em over a fire or dip ’em into a bowl of melted chocolate.
  • Bunny macaroons. Stick a macaroon onto a toothpick and add ears and a bow tie.

Games and activities

If this is an adults-only Easter party, you can tweak the Easter egg hunt to make it more adult-friendly by buying plastic egg casings and hiding things like mini bottles of liquor or gag gifts inside.

You can also feed guests:

  • Make flower arrangements. Have everyone bring their own vase. Stock up on tulips and lilies at Trader Joe’s, and get to work arranging some pretty displays.
  • Jelly bean counting competition.Fill a jar with jelly beans or pastel M&Ms and give a prize to whoever comes closest to guessing the exact amount
  • Egg on a spoon race.Guests race to the finish line while balancing an egg on a spoon. Boil the eggs in advance to avoid a mess.
  • Egg on a spoon race.Guests race to the finish line while balancing an egg on a spoon. Boil the eggs in advance to avoid a mess.
  • Plant some seeds.You provide the soil, seeds and pots, and the guests provide the (minimal) manual labor.
  • Easter egg scavenger hunt. Place a riddle or clue in each egg that leads to the next one.

Costumes

A set of bunny ears is a classic Easter costume for both kids and adults. You can also buy ties and bowties, sweaters, t-shirts, socks and other clothing adorned with colorful eggs and playful bunnies. For a less-literal approach, dress in head-to-toe pastels.

If you want to go all-out, dress up as the Easter bunny.


Decorations

Here are a few of our favorite decoration ideas:
