Fun chocolate-filled Easter activities for kids

Many of our favorite Easter memories involve chocolate in some form or fashion. The joy of unwrapping a sugary sweet bunny always kept us up the night before Easter. Thoughts of all the goodies awaiting us the next morning in our Easter basket kept our brains buzzing with excitement.

If there’s anything all of those Easter celebrations taught us it’s that holiday chocolate isn’t just good for eating. There are lots of fun chocolate-filled Easter activities that kids can enjoy – if they can resist the urge to eat the sweets!


Enter the Chocolate Easter Egg Decorating Contest

Bring the kids to the Delysia Chocolatier Culinary Center for our annual chocolate Easter egg decorating contest! Instead of messy dyes on eggshells, kids get to decorate their own white chocolate egg with an assortment of colorful edible markers.

Kids of all ages are welcome to participate in this free event. Pictures of the decorated eggs will be posted on the Delysia Chocolatier Facebook page where everyone can vote for a winner. The winning artists will receive a golden egg filled with Delysia Chocolatier handcrafted chocolate treats.


A Deliciously Fun Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt

Hunting Easter eggs is a holiday tradition that’s even more fun when you add chocolate to the mix. But what if kids also had to hunt eggs down one by one using clues?

Combine your Easter egg hunt with a scavenger hunt and throw in chocolate to create an activity kids will want to do again and again. Instead of hiding plastic eggs randomly put a piece of chocolate and clue inside each one. Start by making the egg with the first clue easy to find. Hide each egg along a trail or path so the clues build off of one another. As the hunt progresses you can make the clues more difficult as kids work their way towards finding the golden egg.


Chocolate-Filled Rice Crispy Eggs

Easter eggs that hide a fun surprise inside don’t have to be plastic. You can use the plastic egg shell halves to mold rice crispy treats with a chocolate hidden in the middle. Add fruit and other candies so that each sweet rice crispy center offers something new.

In addition to being decorative and fun, these egg-shaped rice crispy treats are very easy to make. Kids will have just as much fun making them as they do eating them.


Sip on Easter Bunny Shakes

A chocolate bunny mold can double as a decadent cup for your Easter shake. Whip up your favorite shake, cut off the tops of the bunny ears and use a straw to sip out the goodness. Once you’re done you can eat your cup instead of washing it!


Make a Chocolate Bunny Mason Jar

Mason jars make great displays – all you have to do is fill them with decorative elements and shut the lid tight. Your kids can make their own Easter rabbit habitat with a chocolate bunny mold, plastic grass, a few chocolate malt eggs and ribbon. Kids can proudly display their Easter mason jar decoration at home or give them out as gifts for teachers, friends and family.

We hope you enjoy all these fun Easter activities with your kids year after year!
