Easter Activities


Four Seasons in Just One Night
Throw a fun holiday party.
Throw a fun holiday party.

This sleepover celebrates four seasons in just one night! Ask your friends to bring four sets of clothing, one for each season. They should also bring a small wrapped gift to exchange in "December." If possible, ask guests to bring old baseball caps and solid-colored umbrellas. You'll need these for your party crafts.

Invitations

Cut a cloud from white or gray paper. Use colored ribbons to hang a flower, the sun, a leaf, and a snowflake from the cloud. Write all the important party details on the cloud.

Come to my 4-seasons-in-1 party!

Where: Jane's house, 4747 W. Main St.

When: April 21, at 6:00 p.m.

Pick-up time: April 22, at 11:00 a.m.

Decorating!

Divide the party space into four areas, one for each season.

Spring

Celebrate the rains, green leaves, and flowers by using umbrellas, fresh or fake flowers, and live plants as props. Pictures of bunnies and four-leaf clovers add to the spring theme.

Summer

Plenty of sunshine! Have bright lights on, and hang the sun high in the blue sky. Tennis racquets and swim gear make great summery props. Lay colorful beach towels on the floor, and fill a shallow tub with sand, shells, and some beach toys for an indoor seashore!

Autumn

Think leaves, leaves, leaves! Cut some out of orange, red, and brown paper, and place them in the fall area. It's harvest time, so baskets of apples, corn stalks, and a rake make fun props.

Winter

Hang paper snowflakes and silver chenille stem icicles. Place skis or ice skates on the floor (be sure they are in a safe place). Include winter holidays as you decorate: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's Day, and Valentine's Day.

Next, learn how to create a holiday mobile to help you celebrate your favorite holiday!
