They can help plan what games to play and treats to make. As a fun craft project, have them make invitations to be given to their friends, family and neighbors. This is the time to decide how many children to invite.If you are going to include an Easter egg hunt, cut your invitations into an egg shape. Let the kids decorate the front of the invitation in pretty colors like an Easter egg! Add colorful glitter with spray on glue to complete the pretty eggs. Each invitation will be unique. On the reverse side of the invitation, list the date, time, and location of your Easter party.If you are fortunate to have mild clear weather, plan your Easter party for kids in the backyard. After a long cold winter, we are all looking forward to being outdoors! Decorate for your party with lots of pastel colored balloons. They look like very large Easter eggs!

Kids have lots of wonderful energy and using this energy in relay and circle games ensures everyone having fun.

Give each child a pastel colored paper bag to collect eggs in. Use plastic eggs for your egg hunt so you can hide them earlier in the day before your party starts. There will be no worry of real eggs sitting out in the warm weather. Add special treats such as jellybeans, stickers, and small toys in the plastic eggs for a special surprise. These can be taken home as party favors.Now it's time for yummy Easter treats. Kids love to make their own treats to eat. Birds Nests are always easy to make and delicious to eat.

Let them form a round nest shape with their hands, and place several tiny jellybeans in the nest to look like eggs. Let the candy nest cool.Another idea is to let kids decorate their own Easter cookies. Before the party, make large egg-shaped sugar cookies. Purchase colored decorating frosting and pastel colored sprinkles. Give each child a paper plate to decorate.
