Looking for some super-fun Easter activities to do with the kids?
Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! The kids are off school for 2 whole weeks and in need of what seems like constant entertainment! These should keep them busy, happy and entertained for a good while… with no TV or games console in sight!
The Traditional Egg Decorating
In a not-so-traditional way; no more colouring them in with a trusty permanent marker… no, times have changed… Use shaving foam to create this gorgeous effect!! Quick and easy, the kids can choose their favourite colours to create their masterpieces. See how to do it HERE.
Easter Egg Hunt
Get creative, you can do clues or riddles to send them to their next location or just hide them randomly around the house. This can go on for as long as you like. Last year I was still finding eggs I had forgotten about two weeks later!
TOP TIP- If you have more than one child colour co-ordinate the eggs so that they know which colour they have to search for- that way one child doesn’t get all the chocolate and you don’t end up with a crying meltdown!
You can get everything you need for a brilliant Egg Hunt HERE.
Make your own Easter Cards
These fingerprint cards are so cute and simple to make. You can’t beat the personal touch when it comes to cards for the Grandparents. Just keep a damp sponge handy for those messy little fingers! We found out how HERE.
Chocolate Easter Nests
Really simple, fun to make and you get to lick the chocolate bowl afterwards (if you can wrestle it off the kids!). Check out the BBC Good Food Recipe HERE.
This one is great if you have more Easter eggs than you know what to do with- melt them all down- kids will be much happier sharing Nests out than handing over whole chunks of their Easter eggs!!
Chic Candy Pops
These Candy Pops are surprisingly simple to make! Plus well, they look pretty darn awesome! Find out how to make them HERE.
Eggheads with Cress Hair
These look AMAZING! With the added bonus of getting a science lesson in there – kids will love watching their ‘hair’ grow! Find out how to make them HERE.
These Easter egg cookies look sooooo tasty! If you want them to look this perfect you might want to keep the kids away when it coemes to decorating, but where’s the fun in that?! Check out the Asda Good Living Recipe HERE.
You might want to avoid this one if you have toddlers, but older kids will love popping all of the balloons they find! Fill some with prizes and they will have popping time looking for all of the treats! Thanks to The Christiansens for this one.
Paper Bunny Rabbits
These Paper Bunnies are perfect to make on a rainy day! You could even get some white pipe cleaners for the whiskers to add a little more. Be prepared to store their creations until they forget about them! Even better- give them to family as gifts!! Find out how to make them HERE.
Egg Splatter Painting
This one is my personal favourite, I am itching to try it with my kids. Create your very own abstract Artwork. You might want to get outside and get the aprons out for this one! Get a blank canvas/ large sheet of paper, fill eggs with paint and get chucking! Find out how HERE.
Hot Cross Muffin Buns
Let’s face it- it’s not Easter without some form of Hot Cross Bun! These Muffin Buns are a super cute (and yummy) way to get your kids active in the kitchen. This Good Food Recipe looks delicious!
