Kids just grow up so fast. One minute they are in Kindergarten then before you know it they are teenagers. Most teenagers love any excuse for a party and Easter is no exception.
When planning an Easter party I like to stick with family traditions but add in a little fun twist.

In our family we love a good Easter Egg hunt. The little kids are happy to find stickers, chocolate, jellybeans and small toys inside their hidden plastic eggs but this is not enough to keep the teens interested and excited. Some great ideas to fill the teenagers eggs are, mini lipgloss, Easter candy, gift cards, a keychain and of course small amounts of money. This will create some Easter fun for teens so they don’t feel like all the fun is for the little kids
We like to color code the eggs for each child, that way you don’t end up with one child finding lots of eggs and others missing out. It also helps you identify which eggs to hide in harder to find places for the older kids and teens and what to put inside each egg.
To keep the game exciting, we also include a special golden egg. The teenagers love searching for this egg as they know it contains a good cash prize. There is only one golden egg in the hunt and it is up for grabs by anyone. The egg will be hidden very well and whoever finds the egg, gets to keep the prize money tucked away inside.
What about a Night time Easter Egg Hunt? Who can resist some glow in the dark fun? This is easy to put together using either glowsticks or glow in the dark paint.
The quickest way is to bend a glow stick inside the plastic egg but if you have time you can paint the eggs with glow in the dark paint then hide around your yard. Turn off the lights and let the teens go wild searching for the eggs.
Easter craft activities for teenagers are a really good idea to have for just in case, they get bored, the weather turns and you cannot get outside or even if you just feel you want to do something a little different.
