Easter is just around the corner. Do you know what you’re going to do with your class the week before? Hop to it and check out preschool Easter activities that you can plan ahead for.
Hop to It: Preschool Easter Activities.
Craft Bunnies-Print out a template of a rabbit on cardstock. Paint the inside ears and nose pink. Glue cotton balls on the rest to get that fuzzy, furry feeling.
Hide the carrot-Hide a few ‘toy carrot’s around the room and have your kids search for them.
Parachute Eggs-Buy some plush eggs and toss them around in the middle of a parachute.
Chillin’ Chicks- Print out a template of a chick and one of a vertical egg. Have your kids color the chick yellow. Cut the egg in the middle so it covers the bottom half of the chicks body and the top of its head. Have your kids decorate the egg.
Real Easter Bunny-If one of your students has a pet rabbit that is used to being held, have them bring it in to visit with adult supervision. Explain to your class proper rabbit etiquette (no pulling ears, be gentle, no yelling and screaming) ahead of time.

Dye Eggs-Hard boil enough eggs for each kid to have three to color. Instead of buying expensive egg coloring kits, you can use a packet of Kool-Aid and 2/3 cups water, just make sure you either have smocks for the kids to wear or request that they wear old clothes that day.
Cookie Decorating-Buy sugar cookies and let the kids decorate them with different colored frosting and sprinkles.
Eggstra Exercising-Fill plastic eggs with physical things to do (10 jumping jax, Touch toes twice, spin around three times, etc.) and have each child pick an egg and lead the class.
Bunny Bowling-Transform bowling pins into adorable bunnies. See here.
Egg and Spoon Race-Put the wooden egg into the wooden spoon and see who can make it to the finish line first. You can buy a set here.
Get ready to have some eggstra special fun with your class this Easter season.
