Easter Activities for Children with Special Needs post image

 

 

Most countries where Christianity is present recognize Easter. Easter is the most significant day in the Christian calendar. It is the observance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Easter rituals and symbolisms are linked to the pre-Christian traditions. However, even non-Christians these days celebrate this occasion, and non-religious families can definitely partake in activities like Easter egg-hunting which kids will definitely find very enjoyable.

Easter holidays are exceedingly fun but they also entail an overwhelming feeling of stress, especially for those who are responsible for the planning and execution. Usually the costs and efforts, and sometimes thinking if our guests may or may not find our project pleasing add to the pressure. Still, these unpleasant aspects of spending a public holiday do not stop us from organizing a party. These are the annual events that unite families and the activities that are held during these occasions strengthen the bond between you and the nearest and dearest people in your life.   

 

It is understandable that we could get too focused in organizing a holiday to make it truly comfortable and memorable for our loved ones, but if children are involved, we must do our best to spare them from the negative side of the holidays. It's ideal to also plan for something entertaining and educational for the kids so parents could manage them easily. The same thing goes for children with special needs. The fast-paced nature of an event, all those noise, new faces, changes in their routine and all the holiday fuss will surely transform a supposedly enjoyable holiday into a traumatic one for them. Painting hard-boiled eggs and baking rabbit-shaped cookies are just a few of the exciting things that your child would find amusing. Keep in mind that providing calming activities will allow them to rest mentally and physically, fully preparing them for the exciting tasks afterwards. Serving meals that are low in sugar will also help in preventing them from getting too hyper. With the right planning, expecting for the worst and hoping for the best, you will be able to relax and make the holiday truly pleasant for your child.

So how do you keep your children with special needs busy and entertained this Easter holiday? Here are some activities that will surely make them spend this occasion with glee.

Rabbit Doesn't Have A Tail At All
(Sung to "London Bridge")

Rabbit doesn't have a tail at all
Tail at all, tail at all
Rabbit doesn't have a tail at all
Just a powder puff
His ears are longer than his tail
Than his tail, than his tail
His ears are longer than his tail
It's a powder puff
