My gorgeous little nephew is being christened over the Easter weekend and coincidently it’s also his 1st birthday party, so it’s a perfect time to throw an Easter themed party. The Easter message of new life and celebrating the joys of Spring also fits perfectly with celebrating these special moments in his life.
So with that in mind his mum wanted to use Spring and Easter themed party decorations and tableware as the Spring yellow and blue colours would work equally well for a Christening and 1st birthday. Party packs had a perfect range great value of Easter themed bunny and chick party goodies which fitted the bill perfectly.

Easter Party Games
Easter egg hunt
No Easter party would be complete without an Easter egg hunt. These printable signs and clues will help you to set up an Easter egg hunt for the whole family to enjoy. All ages can get involved with the tiny ones being helped by a parent or an older sibling
Pin the tail on the bunny
If an Easter egg hunt isn’t enough for your small Easter guests, this printable Pin the Tail on the Easter Bunny is great activity for kids of all ages. The older ones love it because they actually know how to play. i.e. blind fold, spin around and try to place the tail on the bunny’s tush. But the little kids love it too. Even though most of them cheat with their eyes open!
