Spring has sprung, flowers are blooming, bunnies are bouncing and Easter is almost here! If you’re looking for some fun things to do with your little ones over the holidays, we are here to help! We’ve collected ideas and inspiration from around the web to help you come up with Easter-themed activities for you and the littlies to do together.
Get Active: Easter Egg Hunt
Of course it wouldn’t feel like Easter without a good Easter egg hunt! This is a great way to get kids excited, engaged and running around (and if you’re lucky, it may just tire them out a little bit too!)
Get hold of some colourful plastic eggs, and fill them up with little sweets, toys, confetti and glitter. Before you go to bed the night before Easter, hide them around the house or garden, and when the little ones wake up, simply let them loose with a basket and watch them scramble!
If you don’t fancy the plastic egg idea, you could use chocolate ones, or even get the kids involved in creating their own Easter eggs with these great tips from the Kids Activities Blog!
Get Crafty: Easter Bonnets
If your littlies are budding artists, they’ll love creating their own Easter Bonnets! There are so many ways of going about this, and you can make it as simple or as complex and intricate as you like!
You could opt for a fully homemade approach and fashion a hat out of card that the kids can decorate with colourful paper flowers, bunnies and chicks, or you could buy a ready made plain hat from somewhere like Hobby Craft, and get the little ones to choose flowers and ribbons to attach.
Get Cooking: Easter Nests
The kids will love getting involved in the kitchen – especially if there’s a sweet treat to be had at the end of it! This simple recipe for chocolate Easter nests from Kitchenmonsters.co.uk is incredibly easy to make and great fun to get stuck into together.
Get Outside: Easter Gardening
Easter is the ideal time to get outside and get a bit of gardening done ready for the summer, and the kids can help out too! They’ll love to help you dig holes for putting new plants in – even if they just end up making mud pies!
We love these miniature fairy gardens on The Magic Onions blog – they’re a great idea if you have limited outside space, and we think that creating one of these with the kids could be a really great bank holiday weekend project!
And if you don’t quite fancy the idea of getting down and dirty in the mud yourself, why not take a daytrip to a local park or garden. If you live in London, The Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley, (just outside West London) is running a full programme of Easter events for all ages including a Lindt gold bunny Easter hunt!
