The Easter holidays are a great time for getting out and about but if there are also plenty of indoor activities that you can do with the children to keep them amused.
Easter Egg Hunts
Easter egg hunts are a great way to celebrate Easter and really fun for children. You can do your own hunt in the garden either just by hiding eggs of by giving older children a list of clues. You can also often find organised Easter egg hunts at local parks, garden centres, attractions and stately homes. Cadbury’s and the National Trust are organising trails all over the UK. Further details here.
Lambing season is now in full swing and organised visit to local farms is a great way to teach children about animals and farming. You can find some of the farms that are opening during lambing here.
There are plenty of different easter crafts that little ones will love from making Easter bonnets, painting eggs, to collage cards and baskets which come in handy for an Easter Egg hunt. Scrapstore is a charity that promotes creative reuse of waste and is a great place to find materials for all your Easter crafts. You can find your nearest scrapstore here.
Children always love making chocolate crispy cakes which can easily be made into easter nests with the addition of a few small chocolate eggs. For older children with a bit more culinary talent, how about some traditional Simnel cake or hot cross buns. There are lots of Easter recipes here.
Whatever you decide to do, we hope that you have a lovely time.
