Spring is in the air and Easter is just around the corner! If you’re looking for some activities to keep your kids entertained over the bank holiday, why not try some of these? You can make some great memories to share on your MySunshine timeline!
1. Scavenger hunt
Nothing beats a classic easter egg hunt, and it’s a great activity for all ages! Make the most of the sunshine with an outdoor search or hide choccy eggs around the house if it starts to rain.
For toddlers and preschoolers, you can simply tuck the treats away for them to find. For older kids, why not add a twist with some riddles to lead them to the loot?
2. Colouring pages
Keep ‘em occupied with some Easter-themed colouring pages. If you’re feeling especially creative, you could design your own outlines for them to fill in. Or there are lots of online resources you can print out. Check out these egg-cellent (sorry, couldn’t resist) options from Crayola.
3. Pin the tail on the bunny
Ideal for keeping a group entertained. Give pin the tail on the donkey a spring-time shakeup with a bunny alternative. All you need is a large bunny outline — again you can design your own or print one — and some cotton wool balls with some double-sided tape.
4. Easter exercises
Get your little ones moving and grooving with some Easter-themed exercises! You can make up your own or find some online.
Why not give some of these a go?
- Hop like a bunny
- Rise up and grow like a daffodil
- Sway in the spring breeze
- Crouch and jump like a hatching chick
- Fly like a butterfly
- Skip like a lamb
Another option is to pop on an episode of Cosmic Kids Yoga — the Spring and Easter yoga session is sure to get the whole family feeling stretched and relaxed.
5. Chick fingerprint art
With just a dash of yellow paint and their thumbs, your toddlers can create some adorable chick-themed art! Pop a dab of paint on their thumb and help them press it against some paper to create the chick’s body. You can also use a yellow ink pad if you have one.
Once the prints are dry, you can draw on a beak, eyes, wings, and feet to create some truly unique little characters. These pictures make wonderful Easter cards for the family and, of course, you can share them digitally with your MySunshine network, too!
