Easter in Boston

Best Family Easter Activities in Boston Area

Easter always brings us joy, knowing that Spring is truly upon us! This year’s celebrations still won’t resemble our traditional get-togethers but check out our ideas below to bring some flair to your Easter traditions.

Easter Egg Hunts Go Online!

It’s 2021…which means virtual Easter Egg Hunts! Check out Watson Adventures “Hop to It, Kids! Virtual Easter Egg Hunt”, a zoom one-hour “eggstravaganza” that hops around the world, following clues that lead you to websites where you must find eggs and answer fun questions about them.

Sweet Treats

We’re going to be baking these adorable Candy Cottontale Cookies this year! Or make it easy and pick up one of these Easter Egg Decorating Kits from Tatte – assured to be delicious and adorable!

Easter Crafts

Paint your own bunny plate at home! The Clayroom in Coolidge Corner, Brookline, has take-home pottery painting kits available – pick up your bunny plate (or choose from tons of fun options), select your paint colors, paint it at home then bring it back to be fired. Days later you can pick up a beautiful hand painted decoration for your Easter table. Make great gifts, too!

We love to vary our Easter Egg dying techniques…try this trick using shaving cream to get a marbled look to your eggs this year!

We’re Counting on Warm Weather this Easter

Looking to get away for an adventure on Easter weekend? Check out Normandy Farms Easter Weekend activities, just 30 minutes south of Boston.

Not hosting Easter this year for your usual friends and family? Pack up a picnic instead and head to one of the Trustee of Reservations Favorite Places to Picnic. You may just see some real-life Easter bunnies!
