We’ve put together a few cheeky Easter activity ideas for you to enjoy over your Easter weekend. We’re hoping for a sunny day to really put us all in the Easter spirit, but either way, let’s make it bright!
Egg and Spoon Race
We’d be on another planet if we didn’t advise you all to take part in an egg and spoon race! It’s so cheap and simple to do, and let’s admit it, there’s someone in your household who’s dying to get competitive with this one. Nip to your corner shop, grab some eggs and some chocolate to use for prizes. Try and complete the races on a soft material floor like carpet or grass. That way, you can re-use the eggs later on for baking lovely cakes.
Easter Egg Hunt
This is the highlight of the day and don’t we all know it! We really want you to challenge yourself this year, get hiding these eggs! You can make it a little more exciting by setting timers and seeing who finds the most eggs. Either way, this classic of an Easter activity is what we’ve all been waiting for.
Easter Egg Hunt – Puppy Style!
We can't leave our furry friends out of the festivities. Don’t worry, we’re just as obsessed with them as you are. That’s why we couldn’t help but include this idea for your four-legged friends. Just remember to make those treats dog-friendly!
Arts and Crafts
The ideas for Easter arts and crafts are endless. Start by boiling your eggs, or leave them un-boiled if you’re feeling confident and fancy a challenge (you got this). Then you can decorate with pens, glitter and feathers! Our personal favourite tool to decorate eggs with has to be food dye you can make your eggs any colour you want! Tie-dye eggs? Yellow eggs with feathers on? Whatever you please!
One thing that helps to take up time and tires our little ones out is some fresh air and exercise. A lovely walk will refresh the whole household and burn off some of that moorish chocolate we’ll all be indulging in. We all need a little help doing that after Easter time goodies. If you want to make the walk a little more exciting and playful, you can challenge each other to spot out yellow things that you see along your walk. Whoever spots the most yellow things on the walk wins!
If We Knew Easter Was Coming, We’d Have Baked a Cake!
This is a perfect idea for when the weather isn’t so lovely outside during your Easter weekend. We love some quality time within the house and everybody can get involved, even if one person bakes and everyone else eats! And if a big cake isn't what you fancy, check out our Easter Sweet Treat recipes.
Pin the Tail on the Bunny!
Last but not least, we recommend you try pinning the tail on the bunny rabbit. This is fun for all of the family and can be prepared with just a few sheets of paper stuck together and a drawing of a bunny. Take it in turns being blindfolded and pin the tail on the bunny. The winner gets some chocolate, of course.
We hope this list of fun Easter activities gives you the lovely memories that you deserve this Easter!
May it be filled with laughter, colour and lots of chocolate.
