Easter with teens
There is nothing like watching little ones hunt for Easter goodies in the yard. But what do you do when they reach the teen years. You still want to have fun with them, but the traditional hunt has somehow lost its appeal?
It’s hard to let go of traditions even though they seem a little silly now that the kids are growing up. Here are some things our family did to fill that void and keep having fun without the egg hunt.
- A treasure hunt. We left messages for the kids to decipher and to discover where to find the next clue.
- An easy cardboard puzzle to put together with a message on the back. The message told them where to find their Easter treats.
- A Bible quiz about the Easter story. Every time they answered a question correctly they got a prize.
- A Deal or No Deal game. We put different prizes behind each number.
- When they could drive, we sent them off in teams on a car rally. They had to drive around the neighborhood gathering clues.
We’ve had fun with these activities and the kids have looked forward to Easter just like when they were little.
