10 Apps That’ll Get You Egg-cited for Easter
Even though we *love* hosting Easter at our pad, there’s definitely a lot of work that goes into planning a full weekend of themed fun for the whole gang. From finding the perfect appetizers for Easter brunch to organizing a fun egg hunt and enough kiddo-friendly activities to keep our little ones entertained all weekend — we’re always down for anything that would make the preparation process a tad easier. That’s why we’ve decided to help out our fellow busy gals by highlighting a few apps that’ll make accomplishing all of your Easter-related tasks a breeze. Get egg-cited, folks! (Sorry, we couldn’t help it.)
Can you imagine the look on your kiddo’s face when they see that the Easter Bunny is calling them on their parents smartphone? With this easy-to-use app, all you have to do is set the time you want to receive a call from the Easter Bunny and plug in a few details about your tot to make their Easter dreams come true. Your little one will receive a personalized (albeit pre-recorded) call letting them know that there’s a basket filled with sweet treats waiting for them for all of their good behavior.
Whether it’s your first time cooking for a large group or you’re just trying to mix things up a bit this year, Jamie Oliver’s free recipe app is a winner when it comes to Easter-approved grub. With seasonal recipes added all the time, it’s easy to use and definitely one of our faves.

Planning an Easter weekend with the whole family most likely means that your email, calendar, and to-do list will suddenly become ridiculously crowded. The Handle app makes it super easy to turn emails into to-dos just by talking to Siri (or typing it out, your call). Plus, you can organize, schedule, and prioritize to-dos and even add reminders and due dates to make sure all of your prep work gets done on time.
While we’re always striving to give back to our community more, there’s something about the holidays that really inspires us to be more charitable. Movements is an impact-driven giving app that allows you to make contributions to charitable organizations through your everyday spare change by securely linking your debit or credit card.
If you’re looking for a fun Android app to keep the kiddos entertained while you’re making Easter dinner, this bingo-inspired app just might do the trick. It’s easy to learn and completely free to play, and it’ll get your tots in a festive mood in time for supper.
Shopping for the perfect home pieces to go with your holiday decor can get pricey — plus, it doesn’t help that we hardly have time to go out thrift store shopping with our busy calendar. This cool app makes it easy to buy and sell high-quality pre-loved home decor from top brands (including Knoll, Eames, and Chanel) straight from your smartphone. But be warned: It’s mega addicting.
Turn your selfie into an adorable Easter-inspired GIF with this must-download holiday app. Just snap a selfie of you and your fam and the app will automatically insert it in a ton of bizarre (and hilarious!) videos. After you’ve found one that you like, you can quickly save or share via text, email, or through your fave social networks.
Running a little behind on sending those Easter cards? Don’t worry! This cool app lets you personalize and send awesome greeting cards via snail mail AND through all of your favorite techy channels (including text message, email, Twitter, and Facebook). Not only do they have some pretty adorable Easter cards, but they even have separate categories for “fam” and “lovers,” so finding the right card for the right person is a snap.
