A face painting station is fun for kids, big and small, and is a great way to pass the time while they wait for another activity.

A craft station is fun for younger kids who might not enjoy some of the other activities yet. You can include crayons and Easter-themed coloring sheets and have egg pictures for kids to decorate their own Easter eggs with glitter, glue, stickers, and other fun decorations.
