Make Easter egg-stra special this year with a fun baby’s first Easter celebration! When celebrating firsts, there’s something so joyful about celebrating a baby’s first Easter. This is a beautiful and important milestone in a child’s life. You may be wondering what all you can do to celebrate with an infant. We’ve put together some baby-friendly (and covid-friendly) Easter activities that you can easily do at home. In addition to these creative ideas, we’ve also included a bunch of personalized baby gifts and Easter basket gifts. Begin new Easter traditions you can do as a family every year!
Baby’s First Easter Activities
Baby’s 1st Easter Photoshoot
Make this first Easter one to remember and capture all the memories with a fun photoshoot! To take the photos, you’ll need a cute outfit, an Easter basket with green grass filler, plastic eggs, a couple carrots, and a bunny ears headband for baby to wear. You can create the perfect photos indoors or outside, weather permitting. If you’re looking for a less traditional photoshoot theme, try dressing the whole family up as Alice in Wonderland characters—with baby as the White Rabbit! After the photoshoot, you can send these beautiful baby’s first Easter photos to friends and family.
Bunny Footprint Craft
Your little one’s feet won’t be so little forever. Preserve this moment in time and do an Easter craft activity you can save as a fun keepsake. Cover the baby’s feet in paint and stamp them close together on a piece of paper. The child’s footprints will be the ears of your bunny craft. Then paint a bunny face below the footprints. You can also dip the baby’s hand in paint and help them to paint the rest of the bunny. Let it dry and display your bunny artwork every Easter!
Storytime with Children’s Easter Books
Cuddle up in bed or in a comfy chair and read some adorable books with your little one! Personalized books, featuring the child’s name in the story and illustrations, are especially engaging for a fun storytime. Create an Easter theme by reading a bunny book such as My Snuggle Bunny or Peter Rabbit’s Hopping into Life. For bedtime or nap time, try choosing a soothing book that features soft illustrations. A personalized baby book like Goodnight Little Me or My Little Book of Blessings will put baby into a peaceful sleep.
Zoom Call Celebration with Friends and Family
This Easter may look a little different, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate with friends and family! If your grandparents have to skip on the in-person Easter celebration, schedule a zoom call and have a virtual celebration with all your loved ones! Gather around the camera, unwrap Easter gifts on video, and have a dance party by playing baby-friendly music. This is one innovative way to stay engaged and connected from the safety of your homes. Surround yourself with love and have a fun virtual Easter celebration!
Baby-Friendly Egg Hunt
Even parents with infants can enjoy this most beloved Easter tradition! An Easter egg hunt can easily be modified to be baby friendly. While your baby is in the bath, add some plastic eggs to float around. You can also hide small cereal treats inside that baby can snack on. The child will love playing with the slippery eggs and discovering the treats inside (with your help)! This baby Easter egg hunt is so easy, because it can be added to the child’s regular bath routine.
Baby’s 1st Easter Basket
Surprise your little bunny with a baby’s first Easter basket that’s full of baby-friendly goodies! Create a basket with soft toys, a baby bib, a couple onesies, and a flowery headband or knit hat. To make this basket even more special and personalized, add a baby board book. Featuring durable pages, board books are perfect for little hands to touch and explore. To engage baby even more, try personalized board books that are perfect for Easter, such as My First Easter Egg Hunt. This adorable keepsake features the child’s name in the story and illustrations. It’s a sweet Easter book that parents can read to their baby every night. If you’re looking for a unique photo gift, the I See My Family! photo board book introduces the names and faces of family members to the child. Begin new Easter traditions by gifting books you can read together as a family every holiday!
