Let the countdown begin! The Easter Bunny will be here before you know it, time to celebrate! Let’s make our own Easter Advent Calendar!

My kids have had so much fun with our other holiday advent calendars (Valentines & Christmas), so I decided to make our own Easter Advent calendar!

I’ll include the activities we used, but if you have any of your own – leave us a comment, I’d love to hear your ideas!

Here is how to make this fun countdown –

Countdown to Easter – Easter Advent Activities


  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Egg Carton
  • Number Stickers (or use a sharpie)
  • Printed activities (download below)


  1. Cut your activities into strips and put one inside each egg.
  2. Stick your number stickers to the top of each egg.
  3. Place eggs in carton.
