Easter is one of the most important holidays in the Christian calendar and is recognised around the globe.
We have come up with some ideas and activities to help make the Easter weekend fun for you and your children.
Easter Egg Hunt Easter egg hunts are a fun family tradition and it’s one that can easily be replicated indoors or in the garden. Hide little treats around the house or garden and send your little ones out with a little basket!
Pin the Tail on the Bunny You could also try a game of ‘Pin the Tail on the Bunny’! Popular website Sugar and Charm even has a free template that you can download here.
Arts and Crafts
If you can get your hands on some eggs, why not have an egg decorating competition? You can hard boil your eggs, but it would probably be best to blow them and then you don't waste them. You can do this by poking a hole with a skewer in both ends of the egg making one hole slightly bigger and then blow through the small hole over a bowl to catch the egg yolk and white coming out of the bigger hole. Be careful not to blow too hard because the egg will crack. Once all the insides are out, put the eggs in the fridge for later and then you can start painting and decorating your eggs however you like.
Easter Cards & Colouring
Get creative and create your own Easter cards using felt tips, crayons, pens, paints and a bit of glitter if you have it! Online educational publishing house Twinkl has some lovely free resources to download on it’s website, including this free Easter Themes Colouring Pack.
Paper Plate Easter Bunny
It's easy to make an Easter bunny using some arts and crafts supplies. All you need is 2 paper plates, some cotton balls, a pom pom and some googly eyes! Find out how to make your paper plate Easter bunny.
Why not get comfy and enjoy a family Easter film? Two of our favourites are Peter Rabbit and Hop. You could make the event even more special by making cinema tickets for the event and enjoying popcorn and other favourite cinema snacks and drinks.
