Plant a Jellybean Garden...and Watch it Grow 

Get the kids in the garden with this magical activity!  Have them plant some ”jellybean seeds” in your yard and water them with a watering can.  Imagine their amazement when they wake up in the morning and see foiled chocolate carrots and chocolate flower lollipops ”growing” from the ground!  Need to make it an indoor activity?  Use small planters and crushed-up Oreos as the ”dirt”.

Egg Felt Boards for the Littles 

An easy and mess-free sensory craft for younger kids is decorating felt Easter eggs.  Prep the decorations by cutting various shapes out of felt that your kids can stick to their egg canvas.  No glue needed; the natural static will allow the decorations to stick.  Learn how to do it yourself at https://playdatesparties.com/easy-diy-felt-easter-egg-activity-for-kids/

Decorate [Chocolate] Easter Eggs 
Looking for a less-messy alternative to liquid egg dyes?  You can decorate chocolate marshmallow eggs just as you would cookies!  Get creative with decorating icing, sprinkles, edible glitter and Easter icing decorations.
