Easter Activities for the Whole Family
Easter is right around the corner—but, honestly, you’re probably a little sick of the same old egg-dyeing traditions, right? We get it! As dentists, we’re a little worried about the amount of candy your children are eating around this holiday. However, we’d rather not provide you with a list of goodies for your little ones to celebrate with. Instead, here are some fun, Easter-centric activities for your family to do that are better for their teeth.
6 Easter Activities for 2018
Visit Color Me Mine
One of the coolest activities Utah has to offer is Color Me Mine. Never heard of it? Check out their website and visit one of their Utah locations. Take your whole family and have fun painting Easter-themed pottery with designs such as eggs, bunnies, or anything else! Pick up your pieces a week later and enjoy your family’s artwork for years to come!
Dye Eggs a Different Way
Instead of coloring eggs the traditional way, do something different and make deviled eggs with a twist. After you’ve boiled your eggs and separated the whites from the yolks, allow the whites to sit in colored water for a few minutes before completing the recipe. This is definitely a cute alternative that your children can help with and is much better for their teeth and health! Check out All Recipes for the complete recipe.
Visit the Thanksgiving Point Ashton Gardens
Easter is all about spring, sunshine, and being with your families. That’s why we love the Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point. Here you can enjoy beautiful gardens, the Tulip Festival, and see your children get excited as they explore in. We should also mention that this is a great location for any Easter family photos you’d like to capture!
Make Something Sweet
Even though we’re trying to avoid eating too many sweets, we figured this recipe from SugarHero would be an excellent alternative to candy. It’s sort of a nice compromise—there’s still the sugar cookie and frosting but there’s a TON of fruit! It’s both beautiful and satisfying. You can let your little superheroes run wild with the design. Copy SugarHero’s striped pattern or ask your children to create a picture with their imaginations. Then enjoy the pizza on Easter Sunday with a family picnic!
Invite Some Fairies Over
Another great DIY that you can include the whole family with is creating a fairy house for your yard or garden. What a great way to welcome both spring and Easter! As you build your fairy house, just remember to remind your little ones to be very careful and patient so as to not break or hinder the house! You can follow this step-by-step from wikiHow to create your new house! Also, this DIY could easily be modified to welcome some Easter bunnies if that’s a little more relevant to how your family wants to celebrate this holiday.
Attend Easter Eggstreme
You can’t have Easter without the classic egg hunt! Luckily for you, Utah has many taking place across the valley! Check out the Easter Eggstreme on April 20th at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi this year. Instead of just candy in those precious eggs, your children will get to enjoy small prizes and other goodies! They will also be able to meet the Easter bunny too, so make sure you sign up soon!
We hope you and your family have an excellent Easter this year and that you get to spend quality time together as well as get outside! We also hope these activity ideas have given you some good go-to’s for your Easter celebrations. Make sure every superhero in your family (parents included!) brush their teeth well during this sugary season and don’t forget to keep your next scheduled dentist appointment.
