We all know it can be hard to entertain the little ones on holidays. The pressure to make things ‘insta worthy’ can be huge. So the team here at That Mama Club put together this Easter bucket list of free/easy things you can do without much pre-planning.
- Make a scavenger hunt card for a walk or in the garden.
- Melt an Easter egg and make chocolate nests.
- Draw an Easter egg on card with a sharpie, dollop on pastel paint, pop into a ziplock bag or cover in cling film & allow your babe to squash the paint around for some mess free Easter artwork.
- Collect leaves and flowers from the garden to create some spring art.
- Head out to a local heritage site for their Easter trails.
- Go to the library to hunt some Easter books.
- Paint some eggs.
- Bake some chocolate chip biscuits with mini eggs. We have the best recipe here!
- Start your vegetable garden by planting some carrot seeds & leafy greens. Talk about where our food comes from & what rabbits eat.
- Draw patterns on eggs with white wax crayon, soak in food colouring & allow to dry.
- Play a game of Pooh sticks in a stream.
- Collet foil wrappers from Easter chocolates to glue & make shiny Easter artwork with.
- Make a flower saucer – take a teacup saucer/small plate, put a small mound of damp sand on top & then forage the garden for flowers & greenery to decorate. See who can design the best saucer!
- Do an old fashioned egg & spoon race. Or take it up a level and turn it into an obstacle course egg & spoon race. Or even the egg & spoon olympics – see how many activities you can do whilst balancing an egg on a spoon! (Tip: if using chicken eggs, try hard boiling them first to limit mess).
