Easter Activities to enjoy with your Children

The Easter Egg Hunt is an annual tradition for many families - our children look forward to it almost as much as Christmas! But keeping it fresh each year can be a challenge, so here's a great hunt idea that is a little different.

You'll Need a Few Simple Items:

  • Plain jigsaw puzzle (Amazon) or bought puzzle
  • Paint/Colouring Pens
  • Plastic Egg (craft shop)

1.  If you're drawing your own design onto a plain puzzle, do this first. You could make an Easter Bunny puzzle, or personalise it with your child's name or hand/foot prints. Make sure that each piece has some part of the writing or picture on it. Let this dry and break up the puzzle. 2. Place 1-2 pieces of the made or bought puzzle in each plastic egg.

3. Now the fun begins! Hide the eggs around your home and/or garden. Then let you little one loose to find all the eggs. 4. When your little one returns with their eggs, pop open the eggs and have fun making the puzzle. The prize can be the jigsaw itself or you can give them an additional prize too. Have fun!

You'll Need a Few Simple Items:

  • Washed Egg Shells (break them as near to the top as possible so you have a large egg shell to work with)
  • Cress Seeds
  • Cotton Wool
  • Googly Eyes and Glue (optional)
  • Egg Box (or something to stand the cress heads in)

1.  Draw a character onto your egg shell. You can be as creative as you like. Use googly eyes and draw the mouth on with a pen. 2.  Put 2 or 3 damp cotton wool balls into the egg shell. 3.  Sprinkle cress seeds on top of the cotton wool. 4.  Leave them in a sunny spot and wait for them to grow. 5.  If the cotton wool dries out add a little extra water. The cress heads will grow really quickly. In 2 days they will have a head of hair and after 4 days they'll be ready for a hair cut. Craft Courtesy of 'Messy Little Monster'.
