Easter Activities

This is a list of Easter Activities ideas, which can be adapted to your child’s needs.  They are suitable for the whole family.  Remember to take time to enjoy the sounds, smells, sensations as you go

 

  1. Parachute games – get some small teddies or balls and a blanket. Everyone holds the blanket and shakes, quickly, slowly, in time with a song, can you make the toys bounce or roll towards people

 

  1. Decorate boiled eggs – poster paint or felt tips or cut out bits of coloured paper and stick them on

 

  1. Rolling eggs – in whatever outdoor space you have or take them on your daily walk/jog

 

  1. Upcycle some eggs – use cardboard from the recycling bin like a cereal box or pizza box, open it out and paint/draw / scribble inside, before cutting it into an egg shape. You might want to stick it in your window for others to see.  Or you might want to do lots and have an egg hunt in your house

 

  1. Bunny hop races – your garden who can go fastest / furthest / highest

 

  1. Egg and spoon race – use a ball and soup ladel if you are worried about the mess

 

  1. Easter Songs – have an old fashioned singsong with Easter/animal theme – e.g. Peter Rabbit’s got a fly upon his nose. Why not learn the Makaton versionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iIRpmxkmGE

 

  1. Easter Movie

 

  1. Edible Bird’s nests – make chocolate and cereal birds nests https://realfood.tesco.com/recipes/chocolate-rice-crispy-cakes.html

 

  1. Birds nests – collect twigs when out on your walk, when you get home use an old container e.g. margarine tub, snap the twigs into small pieces, enjoy the feel and sound they make. Maybe make a Bird from a pine cone (draw eyes and wings on paper and stick them on) or maybe you will be lucky enough to find feathers on your walk.

 

  1. Easter colouring online – https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/peter-rabbit-make-a-peter-picture?collection=creative-play-for-kids

 

  1. Peter Rabbit Masks – https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/cbeebies-house-lily-bobtail-mask

 

  1. Cut out a large egg shape from old cardboard and use coloured paper or clean food wrappers cut up into pieces to make a collage’s Easter egg, if its big all the siblings can do it at the same time

 

  1. Decorate some biscuits – some supermarkets sell gingerbread kits to decorate.  But Digestives and shortbread work just as well!

 

15. Activity Village have a range of free activity packs for different age ranges including Easter and Spring activities https://www.activityvillage.co.uk/school-closures

(Normally a subscription is necessary)

 

16. Stop and listen to the birds on your walk – they are particularly noisy at this time of year

 

17. Spot the spring flowers on your daily walk – notice the shape, smell, size colour, number of them.  Are they Daffodils or crocuses or Tulips

 

18. Have an Easter egg hunt, indoors or out in the garden.

 

For older students with SUPERVISION

19. Boil eggs

20. Help prepare the Easter meal

21. Toast and spread hot cross buns
