Activities for Kids: Printable Easter Dominoes

Visiting family this weekend? Need something to keep kids busy? We are and I do.

My kids are at and age (7 and 4) where they can play for short periods of time by themselves. And I say short periods because sooner rather than later they will be trying to kill each other instead...

In an effort to keep the peace during Easter, I came up with the Easter dominoes:

Basically, I designed a set of dominoes with Easter motives that can be easily printed and given to the kids to play. And if they are damaged by the end of the day or some of the pieces go missing in action, no problem, everything can be easily replaced at almost not cost.

If you want to make your own, download the file here and use a color printer to print it front and back (the pages are organized in a way that when you print front and back, the back of the pieces will have some texture and color instead of just a blank look) in the thickest paper or cardboard you can run through your printer (an alternative is to print on regular paper and then laminate the pieces). There are eight pages in total, so four sheets of paper are needed.

Cut each of the individual pieces, pack them together and give then to your kids. Hopefully they'll thank you by giving you a few minutes of peace and quiet to enjoy your own Easter eggs. Or so I'm hoping...


Enjoy, and have a wonderful Easter!

    1. Yeah, I guess kids are the same all over the world, but since I'm an only child I never had the brothers/sisters experience up close. It gets to me every time that one minute they are playing together and the next minute they are trying to kill each other...Anyway, thank you for stopping by!
