Whether you want to spend an afternoon making crafts with your little ones or perhaps start a new family tradition with a race or egg hunt, here are five ways to get the kids engaged in Easter fun.

1. Host a backyard glow-in-the-dark egg hunt

Fill large plastic eggs with mini glow sticks, glow-in-the-dark bracelets or necklaces. Translucent eggs work best. Hide the eggs at dusk and let the kids find them.

2. Have an egg & spoon race

Walk, run or hop to the finish line with this easy game. Simply place plastic eggs on spoons and let the kids race. Who will drop an egg first?

3. Make pom pom chicks
