Getting your thinking cap on might be the last thing after your mind after days or weeks of homeschooling – so we've made it easy for you with a round-up of the best Easter-themed activities for children, easy to stock up on from some of our favorite major retailers.

So whether you're after traditional egg dyeing kits, Easter craft activities or holiday-themed coloring books, you'll find plenty to keep the little ones entertained here.

Egg crafting kits

Set your kids to work with an egg-decorating kit. Whether you're after a ready-made kit or have the time to gather all the materials they'll need – like paint, glitter and glue – we've found a roundup of some fun activity sets.

Many of these offerings are still available online, but some products – especially at Michaels – are trickier to get. Still, it's worth checking at your local store if you're visiting.

Felt crafts

After something a little less messy? These felt craft kits are perfect for a gentle yet creative activity – and the bonus? They'll give you some adorable Easter-themed decorations to adorn your home, too.

Coloring books

Child better with a pen and paper than a more hands-on approach? An Easter coloring book could be the perfect holiday activity for them. The best ones are packed with puzzles and brain teasers – we've listed a couple of our favourites below.

Easter egg hunt

Who doesn't love a traditional Easter egg hunt? We'll hold our hands up and say it's still our favorite thing about the holiday, and we're fully-grown adults – there's no shame in that. Shop our pick of the best accessories below.
