Easter Activities

Warm hot cross buns, sunnier skies and pretty daffodils…Easter is nearly here! Here are some great ideas to keep the kids entertained!

 

Creative Activities!
 

Create some fun spring themed loose parts play setups or have a go a creating some mandalas with some Grapat! 
 

Loose parts play is a great activity for the kids to do as it allows them to play without structure! This results in richer and more imaginative play, which usually last for longer as well as the child is more engaged in what they're doing as opposed to playing with toys that have a specific purpose!

Feed the birds!
 

The Den Kit Co Make a pizza for the birds

 

Its tiring work flying, nesting and chirping!


Why not put on a spread for the birds and bring nature closer to home with this fun Make A Pizza For The Birds kit!
You can Even spot which birds are landing in your garden with the handy identification cards! 

 

Let's get baking!

The perfect activity all year round (but especially yummier around Easter time!)

Whip up a batch of Easter shaped biscuits (you can get the little ones involved in this!) and then have all the fun of decorating them!

Or for a real Easter treat... how about some Chocolate Easter nests?

Grab some of your favourite chocolate, some crushed up shredded wheat (or you can use corn flakes or rice krispies!), some mini chocolate eggs and don't forget the cupcake cases!

To make the Easter nests...

  • Melt the chocolate in a small bowl placed over a pan of barely simmering water (little ones can just watch this part!)
  • Let the chocolate cool slightly before you pour it over the shredded wheat and then get the kids involved to mix it up!

Once combined,

  • Spoon the chocolate wheat into the cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon in the centre to create a nest shape.
  • Place some mini chocolate eggs on top of each nest.
  • Chill the nests in the fridge for 2 hrs until set. Then enjoy!
