DIY, Arts & Crafts
Get creative! Something suited for almost any special occasion, as the only limits are you imagination. Prepare to get messy with felt tip colours, glue, glitter and paint as this cheap and easy activity can make for a great afternoon in for the family. Paint up some eggs which can be used as great gifts for relatives, you can then make tiny stands for them by cutting down a toilet tube roll. We recommend boiling the eggs first for the extra mess insurance. Any cracks/spillages will be a lot easier to clean up!
Another cheap and easy thing to craft up are these mini peg chick hatchers. All you need is a few pegs, and your choice of decorative card. The rest is up to you!
Easter Egg Hunt
An Easter classic. Plot out a egg hunt for your children. The beauty of this one is how you control the scale of it. It can be a quick 20 minutes game round the house or you can plan a huge one around your area that lasts anything up to a full day, its all down to you. We recommend writing short riddles/clues on bits of paper each hinting the location of the next reward, try to keep the clues topical and the difficulty based on the age of your children.
