This blog post is just a few simple ideas for you to keep the kiddies entertained over the Easter weekend.
Even if you don’t celebrate Easter in the traditional sense (I don’t either!) It is still lovely to make the most of a long weekend and some family time.
But, of course with kiddies it can be hard to keep them entertained and if you are having people over for the Easter weekend or Easter Sunday then you may need to get them out from under your feet whilst the prep takes place!
Well fear not, because I have some ideas for you that will keep them busy and are lots of fun!
Let’s take a look!
1. A Easter Egg Hunt
Cadburys & Nestle both have Easter egg hunt packs out atm as well as places such as Aldi & Lidl. They come with lots of eggs (depending on the size of the hunt you want and some prizes for the end.
You can also get Easter egg Hunt packs that have clues and signs included in them which is great if you have older children, to add a bit of challenge to your hunt.
I’ve seen these in Asda and discount stores such as B&M.
2. Easter arts & crafts
These monthly children’s magazines are great for a bit of easy art and craft and they come bursting with resources!
They are a bit pricey but, trust me they last! I bought this one for my nephews and we made two things each and there is loads left!! So one issue goes a long way and they are really easy, fun & varied.
You could also look online (Pinterest!!) for come easy craft ideas that use your recycling.
Kids love a bit of junk modelling.
3. Easter baking
Kids (& adults) love getting involved in a bit of baking, especially when it involves a tasty treat at the end!!
Check out some recipes here .
These are all really child friendly, quick, easy and the recipes use alot of the same ingredients! So easy on the purse too.
4. A Easter film
Why not create your own ‘cinema’ for a rainy day activity?!?
Pop on an Easter Film, grab some comfies, a blanket and of course some Easter choc snacks or any bakes you have created, and just enjoy a nice, chilled film together. Netflix or Easter specials of their favourite shows are great for this.
During the school holidays local cinemas such as Cineworld usually put on more ‘Movies for juniors’ showings which are a MUCH cheaper way of taking the kids to the cinema, so look out for those too 😀
5. A Nature walk/visiting the farm
A walk is a great way to enjoy and talk about the Spring and all the beautiful flowers and changes taking place.
Plus, on a nice day (let’s keep our fingers crossed for some) a bit of fresh air and a run around is great for the kiddies.
Visitng a farm is also great at this time of year as there are lots of baby animals to see and learn about too! Great experiences.
🌷 I hope this helps & have fun whatever you do 🐰
Until next time,
