Fun Print Activities and Free Easter Printables Inspired by Easter Traditions Around the World

Easter is always a festive occasion for everyone.  When we think of Easter some of the first things that come to mind are: Easter egg hunts, lots and lots of sweets, and the Easter Bunny.  It symbolizes long weekends and celebrations with friends and family.

Easter is also a very important Christian holiday because it commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Although many believe that the Christians and Hebrews started the holiday, there are many things about Easter that are pagan in origin.  In fact, there are many different Easter traditions from all around the world.

We’ve put together some fun print activities and free Easter printables inspired by Easter traditions all over the world to help you plan your Easter celebration.  If you have kids at home, this would be a good opportunity to give them a quick lesson about the history of Easter!

Pin the Tail on the Bunny Printable

Many thanks to Amber of From ABCs to ACTs for this Pin the Tail on the Bunny Printable

Let’s give the donkey a little Easter holiday break by adding a fun twist to this popular children’s parlor game!

Easter wouldn’t be the same without the Easter Bunny (otherwise known as the “Easter hare” in Sweden, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland).  Although there is no concrete explanation as to where and how the Easter Bunny was conceptualized and turned into a tradition, the thought of having a cute, fluffy bunny delivering Easter eggs filled with sweets and chocolate is too appealing that you wouldn’t really care about why it’s part of Easter, right?

Amber of FromABCstoACTs.com shares these wonderful free easter printables for Pin the Tail on the Bunny that will definitely keep your children entertained while you are preparing their Easter egg hunt.  It’s reusable and it offers a great color-matching activity for younger children.

Free Easter Bilby Printables

Our WorldWide ClassRoom was thoughtful enough to put together these Easter Bilby Printables

Not everyone is too keen about the Easter Bunny – particularly our friends in Australia.  No offense to the Easter Bunny, but his fellow rabbits are considered a pest in Australia due to the damage that they tend to cause the environment.

And thus – the Easter Bilby was born!  The bilby, also known as the rabbit bandicoot, is an endangered animal which also has soft, long ears.  Like the Easter Bunny, the Easter Bilby also gives out chocolates and sweets to children, so we can consider them to be on the same team.

This Easter Bilby Printable Pack by Our Worldwide Classroom will give you a great opportunity to introduce a new animal to your children and feed their interest in animals.

Your Easter treats will be much sweeter with these free personalized kisses labels by Anders Ruff Printables Shop

Easter wouldn’t be the same without Easter sweets!  Easter is one of the favorite holidays of candy manufacturers, particularly in America where it is the second best-selling candy holiday after Halloween.

We can trace back the origins of Easter chocolate eggs as early as the 19th century.  Jelly beans are also another type of candy that is associated with Easter because they are shaped like an egg, which is associated with new life.  The National Confectioners Association reports that over 16 billion jelly beans are made in the USA each year in preparation for the Easter holiday.

Surprise your children and guests with an assortment of sweets packed in a nice Easter egg container.  You can personalize these sweets even further by printing out labels for individual candies such as this Free Printable Kisses Label from Anders Ruff Printables shop.

In our previous blog post, we shared some wonderful printer storage ideas to kick off the spring cleaning fever and help you start organizing your home or office.  But spring cleaning isn’t only for mom’s or homemakers!  It is a wonderful bonding opportunity for the entire family.

Free De-Clutter Printables

Where should you start?  Spring cleaning can feel quite overwhelming, especially when you start surveying all the rooms and things that you need to start organizing.

Before you can begin organizing and cleaning your home, you first need to get rid of all the clutter!  We’re talking about all the items that can either be thrown away or stored.

Laura of the Sunny Day Family recommends 75 things to Throw Away, which she put together in this FREE printable checklist.  The list is made up of things that are taking up space, crowding your closets, and adding to the disorganization of your household.

But not everything is meant to be thrown away.  The folks from Home Storage Solutions 101 recommend that you have 6 piles when decluttering your home:

  1. Keep in Room
  2. Put Away in Another Room
  3. Donate or Give Away
  4. Sell
  5. Trash
  6. Recycle or Repurpose

This Simple Declutter Formula is something that you should do in each room to make sure that you have everything covered by the end of your decluttering activities.

Free Printable Labels for Organizing

After you’re done with your decluttering activities, it’s now time for you to start organizing all the items that were not donated, given away, sold, or thrown away.  You can keep them in wicker baskets, boxes, or in the recycled or repurposed items that you have kept from your declutter pile.  Pinterest has loads of creative storage ideas that you can start with.

Abby of Just a Girl and Her Blog recommends having a contents list, which you can stick onto the inside of the box lid or on the box itself, so it’s easier for you to retrieve items from storage.

Kids Printable Cleaning Checklist

Many adults struggle with “adulting”, because they grew up without much exposure to household chores.  Teach your kids to get organized while they are young by including them in your cleaning activities.

Most parents don’t engage their kids with any cleaning activity, because they’re afraid that it will only start an argument or, for younger kids, it may lengthen the cleaning process and you just want to get it over and done with as soon as possible.

Katie Berry of House Wife How-To’s says that “A cleaning checklist for kids rooms empowers your children to take responsibility for their space while helping them learn important life skills.”  She shares that most of the headaches that arose from asking her kids to clean their room were simply because they didn’t know how to do it right.  She shares this free printable cleaning checklist on her blog to help parents in making cleaning a fun activity for everyone!

Engage Your Husband in All the Spring Cleaning Fun

Ladies, it’s time to face the facts (if you haven’t realized this already) that your husbands will not be as excited with spring cleaning as you are.  The good news is that there are a lot of activities that they can help out with, which will make spring cleaning fun for them as well.

The tool shed or garage is your husbands’ domain.  So, it’s important to tell them about what you’re planning to do to re-organize it before you start doing anything.  We recommend that you appeal to the handyman in your husband and show them these 21 Brilliant Garage Organizing Ideas by the LighterSide of Real Estate.  Remember – it’s a partnership, so plan out your organizing activity together to make it fun for the two of you.

Spring Cleaning is a great opportunity to get everybody in your home organized.  It also provides a great bonding opportunity for you and your family.  We hope that these free printables and tips will help you in making the most out of this year’s spring cleaning experience!
