Easter really is a wonderful time of year. The days are getting longer, brighter and warmer. Lambs can be seen in almost every field and most importantly chocolate can be eaten in abundance without any guilt. It’s also a great time for families to get together and do Easter activities. Let’s be honest those sugar rushes need burning off somehow.
All our Easter activities suggestions are low cost and can be complete without venturing too far from the nest.
Easter scavenger hunt – Set one up at home or join one local to you. Your little ones will enjoy hunting for chocolate eggs, sweets or plastic eggs any day of the week. So why not give it a go on Easter week.
Bunny hop sack race – Easter up the OG sack race by adding a bunny tail to each sack. Watch those little tails go! One for all the family to get involved in.
Play a game of pin the tail on the bunny rabbit – Outline a bunny rabbit and display this on a wall where your children can easily reach it. Blindfold your participants one at once and before letting them pin the tail, spin them around a few times. The closest they can get to the tail is the winner.
Make bunny rabbit puppet socks – Get creative and make use of those pesky odd socks and spare buttons that have been lying around for far too long. Once these have been made your children can have hours of fun playing with them and putting on puppet shows.
Egg and spoon race – a classic Easter activity that everyone will enjoy. Make sure to boil your eggs first though. No one wants runny eggs on their carpets or even worse between their toes.
Clue hunt – Make your usual Easter hunt more of a challenge with clues to keep you guessing your way to victory
Rabbit ear ring toss – Who doesn’t love watching family members duck and dive to catch rubber rings on inflatable rabbit ears? All for just £4.50 from Amazon.
Paint eggs – Another low cost arts and crafts activity your little ones will enjoy. Once dry display these in a bowl for your family and friends to admire over the Easter holidays.
Bake Easter treats – from Easy Easter nests to a show stopper mini egg cheesecakes, BBC good food has 52 Easter recipes that the whole family can get involved in – click here to check them out.
Egg rolling – hard boil some eggs and decorate them with some bright colours so they can be easily seen. Head to a hill, or if you are feeling adventurous a mountain, then have a go at rolling them down. The egg that rolls the furthest wins.
