Easter activities for you and your kids. March 21 2018, 0 Comments
Easter is a great time for kids and not just because there is an abundance of chocolate. The weather is beautiful, there are lots of public holidays and the world is filled with bunnies and colourful eggs. Here are a few ideas of activities you can do with your little ones to make some Easter memories and help to fill up a few of those school holiday hours.
- An Easter Egg hunt is the obvious one but what could be better than hunting for chocolate? Make it fun by drawing them a little map or leaving bunny foot prints in the garden by sprinkling baby powder on your hand and stamping your fist in the grass.
- You can also help your children to make their own little bunny baskets to gather their eggs for the hunt or to use as decor on the table. Click here for a link to a free printable bunny basket, you can download and make with them with your kids.
- Another classic is painting eggs which may be tricky for smaller children but there are some easier techniques that they could try. Click here to have a look at some creative ideas.
- Then of course there is the egg and spoon race which is a great way to burn off that extra energy. Make sure you boil the eggs first and it would probably be better to use thick, plastic spoons in case of any accidents.
- Another creative activity is to make Easter hats and bonnets. Grab any old hats you have lying around the house and get a selection of flowers, pom poms, glitter – anything that the kids can stick all over them and parade around in their creations.
- Show your kids that giving Easter treats can be as much fun as getting them, in theory anyway. Help them to make edible Easter nests and hand them out to friends and family. First make the little nests using Rice Krispies and melted marshmallows and then let the children fill them with mini speckled eggs (this bit will probably require some supervision!). Click here for the recipe.
- And finally, another fun activity is to make pom pom chicks. While quite a lot of adult help is needed for this one, in the end your kid will have their own little baby chick that will last longer than just the holiday. In fact, if they get good at it they can turn their colourful pom poms into all sorts of creative creatures – including bunnies and sheep. Click here to learn how to make these.
So there you go. We hope this list helps to bring smiles to those little chocolate-covered faces or at the very least burn off some of that sugar!
