Easter will be here in the blink of an eye, and if you are looking for some festive, fun party ideas to help celebrate the holiday with little ones, I’ve got you covered today! This Easter-themed party is brimming with handmade ideas, fun activities and all sorts of delicious ways to ensure this Easter is one your kiddos will never forget. Read on for all of the details for how this fun gathering comes together, with the help of some delicious confections from The Hershey Company.
A simple framed chalkboard is the background focal point of the party, with a cute “Hop Hop Hooray!” message that really conveys the fun feel of this party.
A darling felt carrot garland adds a whimsical touch to the decor, and it is so easy to make!
Think that candy is reserved only for Easter baskets? Think again! Cadbury Mini Egg Candies look downright charming when poured into a vintage milk bottle to create a charming centerpiece. Tuck some faux flowers into the candy-filled bottle and then finish with a festive bow tied with ribbon. In no time you have a simple and sweet arrangement!
Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bunnies, Hershey’s Kisses Vanilla Creme Filled Milk Chocolates, and Hershey’s Miniatures are packaged for Easter in such bright, festive wrapping that they can also double as decor when displayed on cute tiered serving stands.
No children’s party is complete without fun activities to keep everyone engaged. A traditional Easter egg hunt is always a hit, but it’s also fun to get a little crafty, too–and especially when the projects also double as tasty party snacks! Adorable Easter basket cupcakes are super simple, and terrific for getting children involved. Bake white cupcakes and frost with green frosting. Cut a 6×1/2″ strip of pretty paper for each cupcake, and tuck into the frosting on either side to create the basket handle. Now–let the fun begin! Pour assorted candy like Jolly Rancher Gummies Bunny Food Shaped Candy, Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans, and Cadbury Mini Egg Candies into small bowls, and allow children to “fill” their Easter basket cupcakes with all sorts of goodies. This is a perfect activity for children of all ages!
For another fun and delicious activity, grab a Whoppers Robin Eggs Decorate Your Own Eggs Box. Inside the container are three food-safe markers that can be used to decorate the plain candies in any way that strikes your fancy.
When the party fun has come to a close, thank guests for “hopping over” by handing out cute bunny pants treat bags, which can be made in a flash with my handy tutorial.
Outfitted with adorable suspenders and a fluffy bunny tail, these little bags are the perfect vessel for sending friends home with some delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs and Cadbury Creme Egg Candies, which happen to be my personal favorites! I mean, who can resist their chocolaty, gooey goodness?
Hershey Easter treats are now available at retailers nationwide, so be sure to grab some treats and gather some friends and family to host an Easter party of your very own!
