Easter Party Invitations

Invitations are always the best place to start when planning a party.

Once you have decided when and where you are hosting your party, then it’s time to choose those invitations and get them sent out.

It might also be worth asking if any of your guests have a food allergy or intolerance so you’re not caught out last minute if they show up announcing they’re gluten free or have a serious allergy to nuts!

If you’re creative and have the time, you can design your own invitations, or get your kids involved making them. If you’re strapped for time, then grab a copy of my FREE printable Easter Party Invites (below) to save you some time and money.

Easter Decorations

Easter decorations are next on the list to consider.

How much do you want in terms of decoration? Do you want to go all out with fun decorations, or are you just looking for a simple banner and paper plates?

Do you want to make them yourself, make them with your kids, or buy them?

Have a look at the options below, which include a craft kit for kids to make their own decorations, as well as ready made decorations.

Remember to also consider decorations such as the tablecloth, and whether you want to use your own plates and cups, or buy single use ones.

Easter Table Supplies : Plates, Cups, Tablecloth…

If you don’t have enough of your own crockery, don’t have the time to wash it, or the party is outside and you fear it being broken, then single-use plates are the way to go.

This Easter Party Table Supplies kit, from Amazon, comes with 2 tablecloths, big plates, smaller dessert plates, cups, napkins, and gold cutlery for 25 people!

Get everything all in one go. That’s one less thing to worry about on the day!

Easter Bunting

A spot of Easter Bunting can easily brighten up your party space or draw attention towards the door of the party room, or the food table. This Easter Bunting, from Amazon, is cute and fresh and can be hung in minutes.

Big Easter Balloons

If you’re looking for a bit of a wow-factor, take a look at these Fun Inflatable Easter Balloons, from Amazon. This set of 10 includes; chicks, Easter bunnies, and a happy easter sign balloon.

Make your own Easter Decorations

If you want to make Easter decorations along with the kids, then this Easter Egg Decorations Kit, from Amazon, is a great option. Do it with your kids before your guests arrive or have it set up for the early birds to help with too!

Of course you can also make completely Handmade Decorations, if you have enough time and enthusiasm. These 45 ideas from Better Homes and Gardens are great for inspiration.

Plan Kids Easter Party Games

No kids party is complete without games, but it doesn’t have to take forever to plan them! Here, I have found some of the best Easter games to buy, along with some free game options.

! Don’t forget to grab a couple of Easter Eggs or Easter Candies for prizes !

Free Easter Games

An Easter Egg Hunt is of course the main one that comes to mind. I cover that in more detail further down in the entertainment section.

An Easter Egg and Spoon race is always a fun option. You could even get the kids to decorate their egg before the race.

An Easter Scavenger Hunt or Spring Nature Hunt can be great fun if you’re expecting nice weather. Easter Bingo is of course another winner, and has the added bonus that it isn’t weather dependant! You can grab my FREE Spring Nature Hunt for Kids and Easter Bingo Game here.

If you’re looking for some unique, free, and low-prep Easter games that use items commonly found around the family home, check out my Free Easter Games for Kids with Frugal Moms.

Easter Craft Activities

Not every kid likes games, and, in amongst the busyness and noise of a party, it’s nice to have a quiet area to relax. Crafts are great for this.

There are various Easter craft activities that you can choose from. You could go traditional and decorate hard-boiled eggs, or you could set out coloured card, scissors, glue, pens, stickers and other craft supplies and let the kids make Easter cards.

FREE Easter Color-in Cards

If you’re looking for something simple and free, it’s worth checking out my Free Printable Color-in Easter Cards. I have 4 designs to choose from, and you simply print them out onto card and they’re ready to be colored. A nice simple craft for a large number of kids.

Color-in Easter Tablecloth

This Fun Color-in Easter Tablecloth, from Amazon, is a lovely easy craft activity to have set out for party guests. Just set it out over a spare table or on the floor in the corner of the room, with a pot of pens and you’re sorted!

Easy Easter Scratch Art

This Easter Scratch Art, from Amazon, is a great craft activity for parties as there is little mess that cannot be easily hoovered up at the end.

Easter Entertainment

The next thing on our list is the entertainment.

You can of course hire in some entertainment, like a magician or an Easter Bunny, but you can also do it yourself.

Easter Egg Hunt

An Easter Egg Hunt is probably the main expectation of an Easter Party. Thankfully it doesn’t really take much planning to organise.

Simply grab some Easter eggs from your local store, and hide them before the kids arrive. Then provide some Easter baskets for the kids to collect their eggs in.

These Little Kids Easter Bags, from Amazon, may not be the strongest or biggest Easter basket options but for little ones with little eggs to find they are a great budget option.

If you’re after something a bit more robust and sturdy, then you can’t go wrong with these cute Easter Bunny Bags, from Amazon. They can be re-used each year too. Great for the environmentally conscious!

If you want to make it even more fun, take a look at this Easter Bunny Costume, from Amazon, and dress up yourself or delegate the task to one of your helpers! This one looks like one of the characters you see in the kid’s TV shows!

Easter Photo Booth

Lastly, an inexpensive, yet super fun, entertainment option is the Photo Booth.

These have become rather popular lately. They are an great way for everyone to have some fun and make some memories. If you buy a set of the Easter Photo Booth Props, like these from Amazon, you can get them delivered straight to your door and you’re done!

Kids Easter Party Snacks

The next thing to consider for your party is the food. Here, you can go as big or as small as you’re comfortable.

If you are interested in making some cute homemade Easter snacks, then check out 17 Unbelievably cute Easter Party Foods, from Donella on One Crazy House Blog. She showcases a fabulous range of options, from easy-assembly snacks to more complicated and impressive Easter themed recipes.

Alternatively, you can grab your Easter Party food from your local supermarket or discount store.

If you’re planning to make your own cupcakes, but don’t want the faff of decorating them, then these cute little Chick, Rabbit, Bunny and Easter Egg Edible Cake Toppers, from Amazon, are a fab buy. So cute! And they make cake decorating nice and easy for the kids to help with too.

Easter Party Bags

No little kids party is complete without a fun party bag to take home. Giving out the party bags is also a great way to signal the end of the party, if you’re worn out and the kids are looking like they’re settling in for the night!

Those little temper tantrums over leaving are often soothed with a little bag of treats to take home too.

How much you spend on these little gifts financially and time-wise is really up to you. Below I have popped in links to some different options.

If you’re after an environmentally-friendly choice, then these Paper Easter Goodie Bags, from Amazon, are a great option. Fill them with some Easter treats and pop the sticker on to seal them.

Cellophane Bags with Ribbons, like these from Amazon, are great if you have some homemade treats to gift. They work well for things like cookies, candies, and chocolates.
