Easter Activities for Kids

After the observance, Easter is a time of family reunions, traditional foods, and creating new memories while reminiscing and reflecting. While the adults are setting the tables and catching up with the past year’s events, the kids impatiently await the first course to arrive so they can finally dig in. This year, keep the younger crowd calm while partaking in some festive fun with Easter activities for kids!

Easter Activities for Kids

Set up a separate crafting and activity station to keep all the kids settled in one place. Prepare the area with smocks if necessary; Cover with festive wrapping paper to not only protect the table but to also dress up the space. Here are some suggestions for simple yet fun Easter activities for kids; be sure to set out all the supplies and ingredients they may need before the event so they can enjoy the day while the adults catch up and play!

Don’t forget to check out our Easy Easter Decorating Ideas for some simple and festive ways to spruce up your space!

Easter Egg Decorating

Prepare a few dozen hardboiled eggs for kids to decorate. For less mess, skip the paints and dyes and instead provide kids with permanent markers in various colors so they can draw designs or even just bedazzle the eggs with their names. Other mess-free suggestions include festive stickers and glitter pens.

This festive activity box for Easter is filled with festive treats and activities to keep children of all ages occupied. The best part? This activity box comes complete with sweets, crayons, and even an adorable paddle ball, all packaged in a ready-to-color box, essentially doing the prep work for you. At the end of the party, kids can then pack all of their goodies and creations into the activity for a creative party favor container!

Easter Cookie Decorating Station

The only thing better than decorating eggs is decorating buttercream cookie eggs! Set up a cookie decorating station for kids to unleash their sweet tooth dreams.

How To: Serve Cheryl’s Easter Cookies

Image

 

When your Easter cookies arrive at your doorstep, we bet you’ll be excited to serve them at your Easter celebration on Sunday. So, we put together a cute and festive way to use your favorite cookies for the perfect dessert table. 

First, you will need a box (or two) of our adorable Frosted Easter Cutouts. Next, you’ll need to take a trip to your local grocery store or drugstore and make your way to the holiday aisle where you’ll find a variety of Easter celebration goodies and decorations.

We used:

  • Mini springtime Easter egg boxes
  • Easter egg tray
  • PEEPS®
  • Easter grass
  • A basket
  • Plastic Easter eggs

Take the mini boxes and fill them with the Easter grass, then place a cookie and a PEEPS® on top. If you have any cookies left over, you can place them in the middle of your Easter egg tray and fill the rest with the plastic eggs (or real ones). Put all of the mini boxes in the basket and when your guests are ready for dessert, you can start to hand out your favorite Cheryl’s cookies

Ready for Spring?

 
 

Spring Cookies!

Spring Cookies!

 This week’s blog post is from one of our Marketing experts, Gina.

A couple of weeks ago, a groundhog in Pennsylvania didn’t see his shadow, which according to legend, signifies that winter weather is drawing to a close.  And what welcome news after one of the craziest winters in recent history.  I don’t know about you, but I am ready for SPRING!  Cheryl’s is rolling out the Flowers, Easter eggs, and our NEW baby chick cookies because what better way to shake out of the winter doldrums than with cookies!  And buttercream frosting of course!

As much as I’ll miss the cold and the ice (haha), I’m so excited to see the trees sprout buds, the earliest flowers start to bloom, and the birds start to make their nests.  As the official season of rebirth and renewal, spring always feels like a brand new page, open to every possibility.  Even spring cleaning doesn’t sound so bad as a trade-off from being cooped up all winter!

I’m so excited about the coming of spring that I was wondering what your favorite part of spring is.  What are some traditions you and your family have for this time of year?  Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

Introducing our NEW Buttercream Frosted Chick cookie!
