Easter Activities For Kids
Chalk Egg Drawings
For eggs of the non-edible kind, our Chalk Eggs are fantastic for getting creative outside in the spring weather. With six pastel colours to choose from, use them to draw on pieces of pavement, patio slabs, brick walls or chalkboards. There's no need to worry as they are fully washable (via the garden hose or rain).
Spring Bug Hunt
Whilst hunting for hidden Easter eggs, little explorers could also turn their attention to: bugs! Our Explorer Bug Hunting Kit is packed with a green bucket hat, pop up bug net, pair of binoculars, telescopic net, magnifying glass & more. Use the binoculars to watch birds (and zoom in on any potential eggs), examine bugs up close with the magnifying glass and stay cool in the sun with the green bucket hat.
DIY Easy Easter Bonnet
What you'll need
- Two sheets of green A4 card
- Green pipe cleaners
- One sheet of yellow card
- Orange tissue paper
- Scraps of coloured card & foam sheets
For the base of the hat, cut a sheet of green A4 card in half to create two long strips. Use the other sheet to cut thin triangular shapes that create strands of grass.
To make flowers, draw a daffodil outline on the yellow card. Cut these out and attach to the green pipe cleaners with sellotape. For the centre of the daffodils, scrunch up orange tissue paper.
Attach pipe cleaners to the hat with tape, making sure the pipe cleaner bases are well-covered so they won 't cause any irritation. To get the perfect hat fit, wrap the card around your child's head and secure it with tape.
Use the scrap paper and foam to add on a few spring additions - such as flowers, ladybirds, butterflies and bumblebees. Now you're all ready to go out in your new Easter bonnet!
The Easter fun doesn 't stop here! Grab your colouring pencils and pens to colour in our Easter colouring sheet. The perfect way to get your little one away from the screen and to help unleash their creativity.
