Yes you are reading that right, last minute Easter ideas because it is only a few days away!
Don’t ask yourself how this happened and how to it! I am sharing some easy last minute Easter ideas to get your little ones excited for this spring holiday.
They are easy enough that some of these activities can be done at home, or for very cheap! Check them out below.
1. Easter Bunny Footprints
Print out this free template and carefully cut out the bunny feet to make a stencil. Place stencil on the floor and sprinkle powdered sugar. Do this a few time to make a trail.
2. Free Spring Printables
When you sign up for my newsletter, you will get a set of spring themed printabbles including Easter pennants, toppers and coloring pages.
3. Naturally Dye Eggs With Onion Skin
Coloring eggs has never been this fun! Head to my previous post on how to color eggs with onion skin!
4. Easter Bunny Bait
Mix some dried oats, colored sprinkles and anything else you want to add to sprinkle for the Easter Bunny when he comes at night.
5. Dollar Store Easter Basket
Head to your local dollar store and stock up on the ultimate Easter basket! Everything you see hear is from Dollar Tree or Target Dollar Spot. You can add snacks, bubbles, Playdough, sippy cups and more! Also how cute are these sunglasses? I decided to glue some letter beads to customize them.
6. Jelly Beans in the Toilet
Throw some jelly beans in the toilet and even add some green and purple food coloring. Add the note for the Easter bunny saying they forgot to flush!

If there is one thing we learned during quarantine, it is we need to be self efficient. Exactly a year ago we got chickens and that has been the best decision we have ever made. We have taught Franco how to care for them, how to collect eggs and how we cook the eggs. (I am better at homeschooling than I thought!)
Gardening is something I want to get better at and also teach Franco along the way. I decided to give our gardening activity a twist so we stay interested and have fun with it.
I created this pizza garden kit that includes seeds to grow our own pizza toppings, how could we lose interest in that!? To know that a homemade pizza is within our reach is worth the wait!
This pizza garden kit is great to gift someone as well, I am providing a free printable so you can create your own and give to someone who wants to learn how to garden (and loves pizza!).
Here is what you need to make your own pizza garden kit:
An empty egg carton, I used a four pack, but you can up to a dozen based on which seeds you want to plant.
Used coffee grinds
Garden labels printable
Tooth picks for the garden labels
Fill holes of egg carton with some gardening soil, place seeds in and add more soil. Top with coffee grinds and pat down.
Cut out garden labels and tape each one to a toothpick. Place label in each prepared soil.
Water garden and let each plant germinate according to package directions for each seed. When it is time, bring them outside to continue growing.
By the end of the season, you will have everything you need to make a delicious pizza! Stay tuned for a delicious pizza dough recipe to make the ultimate homemade pizza.
