games and crafts for everybunny
Easter treats aren’t all made of chocolate! Take a trip to Candyland, make some super bright masterpieces or savor a sweet victory in a card game or two. What’s better, these games and crafts are a perfect way to get the whole family involved in the play, whether you’re all working together to create pieces of art or competing to win! With the toys below, their Easter baskets will be brimming with play everybody will want a piece of!
Take a stroll through the Peppermint Forest, past Licorice Lagoon and all the way to King Kandy’s Castle in the classic boardgame, Candyland! Choose a gingerbread man then pick a card with a colored square on it. Move to the next space with that color and take turns drawing cards. They might choose a card with two colors, and that means they can move twice! If they draw a card with a tasty treat, they can automatically move to that space, too. If they’re super lucky, they might land on a sweet shortcut…but beware! If they land on licorice they’re stuck and lose their next turn. The first player to make their way to King Kandy’s Castle wins!
Give ’em a challenge on Easter morning with their very own Rubik’s Cube. This brain teaser tasks players with rotating the cube to align colors to each side. Each side, when completed, is one solid color. Sounds easy? If you’ve ever tried a Rubik’s Cube, you already know how difficult it can be! There are many, many combinations to try but only one solution to win. When they’ve completed the puzzle, they can use the display stand to show off their great accomplishment!
If you’re worried about toys being too big for their Easter basket, then worry no more! World’s Smallest Uno is, as the name suggests, teeny tiny! It’s the same version of the classic card game just micro-sized and ready to take anywhere they want to play. Flip a card and match ’em by color or number, or use strategically placed skip, reverse, draw two, draw five and more cards to make things tough for other players. When you have one card left, yell “UNO!” and try to toss that card into the pile. The player without any cards at the end wins the round!
Capture the magic of Easter with Kinetic Sand, a new way to play with sand that lets them cut, carve and create using sand that can be mold and shaped into shapes and creations. The set includes three 4.5 ounce containers of Kinetic Sand in red, yellow and blue. Use the child-safe knife, molds and the squisher tool to make—or ssqquuiisshh—magical creations. Watch ’em play and try not to get involved in all the fun yourself. The whole family is gonna have a great time playing with this sand that offers hours and hours of play.
Easter is a great time to get creative! The Etch A Sketch lets them make whatever they want using two knobs to make curves and angles. As they practice, they’ll be able to make temporary pieces of art that they can shake away to make something new. This classic toy has been challenging kids to create masterpieces without lifting a finger, or pencil, in the process. It’s so easy to use and get the hang of, they’ll be showing off their pictures in no time!
Sometimes, they just gotta create their own little work of art! The Play-Doh Sparkle Compound Collection is a great way to let them explore their imagination all Easter morning long with six cans of sparkly Play-Doh. Mold and carve it any way they want, or use the two included cutters to make some gems, flowers and more. Play-Doh is a great way to incorporate unstructured play into their day, and the sparkly addition gives every creation a magical shimmer and shine!
Some Easter magic is on the way with the Scribble Scrubbie Pets Vet Playset with Toy Pets. Put away the coloring books and let them color and draw on two pet figures using three nontoxic markers. The playset includes a veterinarian backdrop and tub they can place the figures in to clean ’em off and get ’em ready for more coloring fun! When they’re all finished playing, they can place everything inside the playset, close it up and carry it off wherever they’d like. The carrying case lets them bring the Scribble Scrubbie Pets Vet Playset wherever they’d like for some creative play on the go!
For generations, Lite Brite has been illuminating play time with colored pegs that are used to make unlimited creations. Easter is a great time to let ’em shine, and Lite Brite lets them use their imaginations to create images that light up and really bring their imaginations to life. It’s so easy to use, too!

The set comes with over 200 LED bulbs and six templates to get them going. They can create signs, pictures, portraits and so much more while they develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
