If your child’s birthday falls around the Easter period, you might be considering organising two separate parties. Don’t fret! You can save yourself some stress and combine them into a spectacular Easter-themed birthday party! Here are some great tips to make your child’s special day extra fun!
Get in the springtime spirit with cute, colourful invitations! Cards with bunnies and eggs will be a big hit. You can choose stationery with cartoon art for a lively party or stationery with a hand-drawn style for a traditional look. The Card Gallery offers a great range of birthday invitations. Just add your own wording and party details!
An Easter egg hunt is sure to keep the little ones happy. It doesn’t require a huge garden – just some creativity! No matter where you’re holding your party, whether at home or in a more open location, you can make the hunt fun with these ideas.
First, make the hunt special by purchasing chocolate eggs and hiding them in good spots. You can change how well you hide them to suit the age of the children. Alternatively, you could buy plastic eggs and put small treats inside.
Give the kids their own buckets and some crafty bits to decorate them. This will keep them busy while you hide the eggs, plus they’re a lovely favour the children can take home. These cute Easter bucket sets from Baker Ross are ideal!
Keep the fun going by having an egg-and-spoon race with the chocolate eggs once they’ve been collected. You could also give the kids eggs to paint and take home in their buckets – this saves you from having to buy party bags too!
Make sure there are great prizes for the children who collect the most eggs, but get something for the runners-up, too. A larger chocolate egg for the winner and smaller chocolates for the others is a good balance… And if you follow our advice on food, no one will feel left out!
It’s not an Easter party without chocolate! There’s no shortage of yummy chocolate eggs to keep the kids happy. And a chocolate birthday cake decorated with mini eggs and bunny cake toppers will definitely go down well.
However, you might want to provide some healthy snacks too! Funny animal faces made out of fruit are always a favourite. Older children might enjoy these cute boiled egg rabbits!
Dress your location with lots of colourful, exciting decorations that have an Easter motif. You can hang bunting and use signs to help kids find the eggs for the hunt. Check out this beautiful bunny bunting from AliceAnnLondon!
Most children love cute springtime rabbits and chicks, so place adorable stuffed animals around to make the party come to life!
