Spring is here, and it’s time for egg hunters and bunny lovers to get ready for this season’s most hoppin’ holiday: Easter.

From interactive Easter storybooks to detailed egg dyeing, everyone can appreciate the holiday even more with apps available on smartphones and tablets for users of all ages.

Get creative with Easter baskets, festive crafts and decorations using Pinterest for inspiration. Martha Stewart's Easter site offers ideas for egg decorating and tips on how to make Easter eggs that will stand out. Egg Dyeing 101 from Martha Stewart Living provides users with a gallery of 101 eggs to make for children and adults and includes egg basics, techniques and how-to tips. Alternatively, design and send a virtual egg to a friend or family member using the Easter Egg Paint app on your tablet or smartphone.

If the weather isn’t fit for an outdoor Easter egg hunt, children will never lose interest with Easter Basket Egg Hunt, a mobile game where players have to bounce 10 eggs from a nest into an Easter basket before time runs out. Gamers will also enjoy Easter Rush, which challenges users to try and catch eggs in a basket as they fall from the Easter bunny without letting any hit the ground.

For more Easter sleuthing, check out the Easter! – Find’em! app that allows you to search for more than 100 different objects that the Easter Bunny has hidden in the grass. Or try the Bunnyfur’s Easter Eggs interactive story book that lets you decorate and hunt for Easter eggs while helping Bunnyfur find new friends along the way.

So, grab your smartphone or tablet and start your own Easter “apps” hunt. With the multitude of apps and games to help celebrate, you’re guaranteed to find something to make this Easter a hoppin’ good time.
