With spring in the air and plenty of rain to keep greenery thriving, planting flowers is a great Easter activity that gives your kids the chance to have their own fun with nature.

Get crafty with some egg decorating! There’s a number of cool, artistic ways for your kids to decorate eggs. You can choose to have your kids paint, dye, or even cover an egg in glitter.
