7 Easy Kids Easter Party Ideas
1. Pick a fun Easter theme
Whether it is Easter bunnies, or an egg hunt, or spring flowers, having a theme for the decor helps pull it all together. These cute decorations featuring Snoopy and the other Peanuts® characters were a fun kid-friendly theme for the party.
2. Hold the party outdoors
If the weather allows, have the party in the backyard! We decorated our picnic table and had the party on a sunny morning. Having it outdoors keeps your decorating to a minimum and helps avoid a big clean-up indoors!
3. Make the decorations colorful
Rather than stick with a single color, I used a mix of pastel plates, cups, and napkins from Oriental Trading. I also incorporated different prints like polka dots and a lime green chevron table runner.
4. Keep decorations easy
Inexpensive plastic eggs were the star of the decor. I made Easter egg flower centerpieces (see tutorial here!) and strung the eggs together with string to make a runner down the table. Little Peanuts® pails filled with goodies at each place setting doubled as both decor and party favors.
5. Incorporate a simple Easter activity
Kids love making things as long as you keep it easy! The kids loved coloring their own Peanuts® party crowns.
6. Serve a yummy treat
7. Get them moving!
Take advantage of being outdoors by doing an Easter egg hunt and playing games. We had Peanuts® Easter kites for the kids to fly (and take home with them afterwards)!
