  3. Blowing and decorating eggs is a good one for us. My girls and I save the eggs to make a cake or Easter biscuits. I'm also a big fan of finding printable colouring in sheets or card from various online sources, such as pinterest. Cheap and cheerful!

    Cadbury has joined up with the National Trust to offer ‘Easter Egg Trails’ at over 200 locations around the country over the Easter weekend. The Hunts are set in the grounds and kids get clues to lead them to chocolate eggs. Trails cost around £2 depending on location

  30. We use small balloons to make papier mache easter eggs, and when they are dry we can paint them. Hours of fun for the cost of balloons flour?wallpaper paste, a couple of newspapers, and some paint.

  31. A walk can be made much more fun by writing a list of items to spot on the way. If you know where you're going to walk you can easily come up with a list, it can include anything from a postbox, to a man with a hat on in the town, to a sheep and an oak tree in the countryside. It's free and it's easy but kids love it.

  32. I like to involve the kids in home baking, great fun and you can eat the yummy results.

  33. Make chocolate cornflake nests with mini eggs on top

    ReplyDelete
  34. We spend the day in the park. I make sure to bring plenty of snacks
    eg crisps, nuts raisins, dried fruit, etc. are great and I pack plenty
    of things to entertain, such as a few books, toys, a portable DVD player
    (be sure to bring extra batteries). I always bring a small pillow and
    blanket from home.
    My children like to bring along their own colouring books, a Doodle
    Pad, their Leap Pads (with a few booklets), and scrap paper that they
    can make their own drawings with and play games such as tic-tac-toe. My
    daughter used to like to bring along a doodle bear when she was younger
    so that she could draw on that as well, and my son likes to bring along
    some action figures to play with. I found that buying a Rose Art kit is
    great! It has crayons, markers, colouring books, colouring sheets, and
    stickers that they can colour. It definitely keeps them entertained.

  35. We like to do ‘treasure hunts’ where the kids have to find items of nature, a pebble, a flower, a worm etc etc. Provides hours of entertainment.

    Maybe try growing some mustard cress. Take the unbroken shell from a boiled egg, draw a face on it and sow mustard cress seeds on some damp kitchen paper inside it. The seeds will grow quickly and look like hair.
