Books are another great option for keeping the kids entertained during dinner. They’re the perfect choice when you need the kids to sit quietly in their seat while the adults eat and talk.

When deciding the types of books to add to your kid’s table, think about the ages of the children and the things they’re interested in.

In addition to adding seasonal books, consider including books featuring subject matter and characters the kids like to keep them engaged for a longer period of time.

Assign Jobs

Do you have helpers in your family? Put them to work during Easter dinner to make sure they stay occupied. Assign each kid an easy job they can take care of before, during, or after dinner.

Kids can handle a variety of great jobs at dinner, including:

  • Passing out utensils
  • Putting ice in glasses
  • Passing small dishes, like rolls or cookies, around to guests
  • Taking coats from guests as they arrive
  • Drying dishes when dinner is over

Reusable Stickers

There is no doubt that kids love stickers, but cleaning stickers off the table after Easter dinner is over isn’t much fun. Instead of giving the kids sticky stickers and worrying about where they’re going to stick them, try passing out reusable stickers instead.

These fun stickers can be stuck on and removed from most smooth surfaces, making them a great way to keep the kids entertained without making a mess.

Small Toys

Keeping small toys on hand is another easy way to make sure your kids are quiet and still during Easter dinner. Make sure the toys you bring are something that will keep their hands and minds busy for a while.

Building toys, like Legos or small blocks, are a great option. They’re small enough to carry in your purse but can provide endless amounts of entertainment for the little ones when dinner is over.

Travel Games

On top of being the perfect size to fit in your child’s Easter basket, travel versions of popular board games and toys are another great option for keeping the kids entertained.

From travel-sized Battleship to a mini Etch-a-Sketch, these little games are great for keeping those little hands and minds occupied when they’re finished eating Easter dinner.

Give them Space

If you would rather the kids leave the table entirely after dinner is over, set up a kids-only room in the house where they can go after they’re finished eating dinner. You could also send them outside with walkie-talkies for some semi-supervised fun.

In addition to giving the kids a chance to hang out without worrying about making too much noise, this tactic also gives the adults a chance to talk while the kids play.

Set up the room with kid-friendly toys and games, a fun craft they can do on their own, or board games they can play together.

Watch a Movie

If the kids finish eating dinner before the adults, have a mini-movie theater ready for them. Turn on a cute kid-friendly Easter movie in another room of the house and let the kids sit back and relax while enjoying the story while the adults finish eating.

If you want to make it extra fun, set up a projector outside or in an indoor space that you don’t normally watch movies. It will keep the kids occupied for longer!

Make Crafts

Set up a craft table with supplies to create a cute Easter craft when the kids are done eating. Just make sure that the craft is simple enough for the kids to tackle on their own. Or else an adult will need to supervise as the kids put the project together.

Whether you set out a variety of craft supplies and let the kids use their imagination to create their own project or you give them instructions for creating a particular craft is up to you!

Hopefully these fun ideas serve as helpful ways to entertain your kids at Easter dinner. I suggest taking a few items off this list so kids can pick and choose what they do and stay occupied for longer. Happy Easter!
