With a soon-to-be 5-year-old now at school, we’re hoping to make her first Easter break extra fun. Easter is on 1st April this year and that means Good Friday is only 5 weeks away. So I’ve been thinking about some of the fun activities that we can get up to in the Easter holidays.
As we can’t rely on the weather, I’ve put together a list that includes both indoor and outdoor activities. I hope it will give you some inspiration
Fun Things To Do In The Easter Holidays
Of course, the obvious option is to arrange some Easter-themed fun. You might like to decorate hard-boiled eggs and have an egg rolling competition. Or there is always the classic Easter egg hunt extraordinaire. And if the weather isn’t looking too good then you can just move the Easter egg hunt inside.
It’s a good idea to plan these activities in advance, particularly if you’re inviting family or friends round to join in the fun and provide a bit of healthy competition. I also find that Little Miss H and Little Mister get less restless if they know exactly what we have planned for the day.
Trip To See The Animals
We’re huge fans of going for a day out to see some animals. It’s easy to use Google and find farms, zoos and wildlife centres in your local area. Also, the zoo can often work in all weathers as there tend to be indoor areas to explore if it starts to rain. Or you can do as we do and wear wellies and coats and splash in muddy puddles.
We’re very lucky living in Kent as there are lots of smaller farms to visit so we don’t need to spend lots of money. And if you want a completely free activity then you can always head to your local duck pond and feed the ducks.
Fun projects at home
If you’re feeling brave, you might like to start a family project with the kids. You could make a photo collage or scrapbook about your latest family holiday or day trip. Or you might like to try something a little more hipster. It might be great fun to be inspired by Pinterest and upcycle a piece of children’s furniture. It’s really easy to get hold of pieces of used furniture. And even large bits of furniture can be delivered via Shiply. So you’ve got nothing holding you back.
Going for afternoon tea with your children could be such a lovely treat for one day during the holiday. Who doesn’t love putting on their nicest clothes and heading out to eat delicious cake? You might need to do some research to find a location that does a child-friendly afternoon tea. Or that serves food you know your little one will actually eat!
And if you’re looking for a cheaper option then you can create your own afternoon tea indoors. The children can invite their favourite teddy bears too.
Park and Woodland Fun
We love to go for walks in the woods as a family. As we do tend to go loopy if we don’t get out and about in the fresh air. And both Little Mister H and Little Miss are always happier when they’ve had time running around. Plus it’s lovely to appreciate where we live and get some exercise at the same time.
What are your plans for the Easter break?
