Exciting Easter Activities to Explore

Spring has sprung and Primary Times have 20 fun ideas for families to enjoy over the Easter holidays…

Arts and crafts
Get those creative juices flowing! Have a go at painting some hard-boiled eggs and decorate with stickers and lots of glitter!

Host an Easter Bunny themed dance party
Spend a musical afternoon playing dress up and having a dance party. Get your bunny ears at the ready!

Family nature walk
Find your comfy shoes and head out on a long walk or spend some time outdoors at a local woodland trail for children and families!

Egg and spoon race
Encourage children to get out and about in the garden or at the park with an egg and spoon race. To minimise mess, don’t forget to use hard-boiled eggs.

Visit a farm
Say hello to the animals, have lunch in the café, enjoy a tractor ride, pop in to the farm shop and look out for any live lambing events too!

Learn something new
It’s out with the old and in with some new knowledge! Try to master a new skill or sport, or visit a nearby museum or art gallery and expand your horizons.

Get active
Dust off your bikes and take them out for a family spin. Pack a picnic for the ride so you can relax and refuel along your route!

Organise an Easter egg hunt
Scatter some sweet treats indoors or outside ready for little ones to find. Write and hide some clues that lead to your prize… the Easter egg! Look out for Easter hunts and scavenger trails taking place near you over the holidays too.

Plan a games night
From popular board games and card games to a winner-stays-on video game tournament, it’s plenty of fun and some healthy competition for all ages!

Taste test your Easter eggs
The moment you’ve been waiting for… it’s time to eat your Easter egg! Which is your family’s favourite?

Gardening
Plant some seasonal flowers together or try to grow your own strawberries or tomatoes! Local garden centres or nearby community gardens are also fantastic day trips out.

Cook a family feast
Invite your nearest and dearest round for an Easter meal. Food that’s made all together with plenty of love tastes all the more delicious.

Let loose at an outdoor play park
As the weather starts to pick up, outdoor adventure parks and activity zones are a great opportunity for children to burn off some energy!

A family spring clean
Teach your children about the power of a clean and tidy space, then open your doors and windows and let in the lovely fresh spring air!

Celebrate the wonder that is chocolate
It’s the perfect time of year to tuck into some chocolatey goodness. Whether it’s chocolate bars, hot chocolate drinks or chocolate hot cross buns - treat yourselves.

DIY Easter cards
A wonderful creative activity for little ones to make and decorate their own seasonal cards for friends and family.

Family film night
Get comfy on the sofa together with a blanket and pop on one of your favourite films – don’t forget the popcorn!

Baking
After a lovely spring clean, fill your kitchen with the delicious smell of tasty treats cooking in the oven! Baking is great for using up leftover chocolate and for quality time as a family.

Make Easter baskets
Weave and stick sections of paper or thick card together in a secure pattern and attach a little rectangular handle to make a basket! Fill with any goodies you like.

Have yourselves an ‘egg-cellent’ day
Challenge yourselves for fun – could you eat eggs for every meal for a whole day? Breakfast could be poached eggs, a tasty cheese omelette for lunch and then some scrambled eggs on toast for dinner!
