Easter is just around the corner; and so are the school holidays. But before you fill with the realisation that the kids need to be entertained for a couple of weeks, we’ve got some ideas that will put a spring in their step and keep them away from the chocolate – at least for a bit.
1. Take part in one of Cadbury’s Easter egg hunts
Okay, so this one won’t keep them away from the chocolate – quite the opposite, actually.
Nevertheless, Cadburys have teamed up with the National Trust to put on their annual easter egg hunt extravaganza.
Taking place at over 250 locations across the UK, let the kids unleash their inner explorer as they follow clues to discover some chocolate-heaven. Most locations will also be providing crafts and other activities, so you’re guaranteed a fun-filled day with the family.
2. Join Peter Rabbit at Kew Gardens
Peter Rabbit and his friends are heading up an activity-filled day at Kew Gardens this Easter. Kids can expect a full schedule of games, crafts, storytelling and much, much more.
“Follow a Peter Rabbit trail, take a trip to Mr McGregor’s potting shed, transform into your chosen character for the day, get stuck into giant food card games and get a selfie with a giant Peter Rabbit board.” Sounds pretty good, right?
Running from 30th March-15th April. Get your tickets here.
3. Visit Sea Life’s new Amazon Rainforest Adventure
Not strictly Easter related, but Sea Life’s new, immersive, creepy-crawly world opens just in time for the Easter weekend. Take the kids and expect a big day out exploring the depths of the Amazon rainforest.
We’re talking creepy crawlies, charming crocs and curious critters. “Come just centimetres away from the Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula, and race our colony of leafcutter ants to find the queen before watching the feeding frenzy of the UK’s biggest collection of Piranha’s!”
4. Head to an Easter workshop
There are plenty of Easter workshops taking place across the country, offering kids the chance to explore their creative side by getting stuck in with fun and exciting crafts.
From Easter bunny headband making, face painting, all the way to creating their own fairy tale woodland, easter workshops are a great, creative space to take the little ones.
Get the kids in the kitchen, put some aprons on and bake some Easter goodies for the whole family.
The kids will love it.
6. Decorate your own eggs
Unleash the artists within by grabbing your paints and creating your own easter egg masterpieces.
Just prepare to get messy!
7. Host your own Easter extravaganza!
Forget heading out for crafts and activities, why not just host your own event?
Get your parent friends on board, invite them and their kids round, and put on your own Easter eggstravanza. Create clues for egg hunts, plot some craft stations around the place, put out the cakes you and the kids made earlier and, most importantly, have fun! You don’t need to leave the house to do that.
