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 filled eggs on our neighbors’ front lawns.

20+ Easter fun ideas for Teenagers
One: Easter egg hunt with a high dollar golden egg like a $50 dollar bill.

Two: Plan an Easter Egg hunt where each egg is filled with a clue to lead to the next egg and with the final clue leading 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 them how to set a formal table and how to cook your family’s traditional Easter dishes so that one day, they will be prepared to host. When they’re ready, put them in charge of a dish or an entire course.
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. Or even simpler, this egg waffle maker is fun
Seven: Nighttime Easter Egg hunt with glow-in-the-dark Easter Eggs. Place glow sticks in plastic Easter eggs. Or make it a flashlight egg hunt (add dots of paint stickers to the eggs that will glow under UV light and give everyone a UV flashlight) – this can be done indoors or out.
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 with fun prizes – teens get more interested when competition is involved. Or make tie-dyed Easter eggs – so fun!
Ten: Bake and decorate Easter sugar cookies
Eleven: Sign up for an Easter Fun Run. Give everyone bunny ears and a cottontail for extra silliness or create custom family t-shirts. No local Easter races? Create your own.
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 fine 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 or patio of your neighbors before they wake on Easter morning.
Fifteen: Make Peeps s’mores.
Seventeen: Have a Peep Taste-testing challenge. Try all the varieties and vote for your 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 the closest
Twenty: Start a garden
Twenty-one: Have your teens make dessert (help as needed). Traditional lamb cake or some Easter-themed creation found on Pinterest.
Twenty-two: Do you have teens and little ones? Turn over the Easter bunny role to your teens and let them hide the eggs and baskets, nibble the carrots, and leave bunny footprints around the house.
