Kids are growing up but I still like to find ways to make Easter fun for teenagers. A mix of continuing traditions that we’ve always done and a few new things that will keep their interest (and not to go hide in their room playing video games). Our favorite Easter fun activity last year was playing secret Easter bunny and hiding eggs on our neighbor’s front lawns.

20 Easter fun ideas for Teenagers
Two: Plan an Easter Egg hunt where each egg is filled with a clue to lead to the Easter basket. We’ve been doing this for the last few years.

Three: Decorate the house for Easter. The next few ideas are holiday traditions that we’ve done for years. As kids get older, they may not be into holidays as much but often look forward to family traditions.
Four: Make a traditional family dinner. Get the kids involved with the menu planning. Use this as an opportunity to teach how to set a formal table and how to cook traditional dishes so that one day, they will be prepared to host.
Five: Bunny pancakes – even as a teenager, my son still loves the fun pancakes we make for holidays. Numbers for birthdays, Santa for Christmas, and Bunnies for Easter.
Seven: Nighttime Easter Egg hunt with glow-in-the-dark Easter Eggs. Place glow sticks in plastic Easter eggs.
Eight: Make your own Easter chocolates and get the family involved. Who doesn’t love playing with chocolate?
Nine: Dye Easter Eggs. Give your kids sharpies and let them go crazy with goofy faces, phrases, and designs. Have a contest for the best-decorated egg. Gift cards like Starbucks or iTunes are popular prizes.
Ten: Bake and decorate Easter sugar cookies
Eleven: Sign up for an Easter Fun Run. Give everyone bunny ears or a cottontail for extra silliness or create custom family t-shirts.
Twelve: Go out for an elegant Easter brunch. Now that the kids are older they’ll appreciate good food. Also, their behavior will be appropriate (hopefully! but you never know with teens) for fancy dining.
Thirteen: Spread the cheer and surprise your neighbors with a ‘You’ve been egged’ basket filled with Easter goodies.
Fourteen: Secret Easter Bunny. Fill plastic Easter eggs and leave them in the front yards of homes of your neighbors before your neighbor’s wake on Easter morning.
Fifteen: Make Peeps s’mores.
Seventeen: Have a Peep Taste-testing. Last year we bought all the different varieties we could find and tried them all. We each voted for our favorites.
Eighteen: Plant flowers – this is a great time to get the family involved with planting new flowers and your home ready for spring. The Easter holiday was started as a pagan festival celebrating the start of spring.
Nineteen: ‘Guess How Many Jelly Beans’ are in the jar. Have a prize for the person who guesses closest
Twenty: Start a garden
