Ways to keep your kids entertained this Easter
Are you wondering how to keep your children happy and busy this Easter holiday? We have just the range of things to do all over the country. So get ready for a jam packed Easter break full of fun with this blog.
Have a spring clean with the kids, get them into the Hinching style so that they get involved in cleaning ready for the future, hopefully they may enjoy it and start cleaning more often (wishful thinking).
Find a beach and fly kites. I always used to do this when I was younger in Northumberland. I enjoyed it so much and fresh air is good for the soul. ( It also helps my kids sleep longer when they are outside for a while). So take your kites, buckets and spades, ball games and perhaps even the family pooch for an Easter day out at the beach.
Go camping, Holidays over Easter can be expensive, as all the prices shoot up when schools are out. You can save your pennies and still enjoy a fun family getaway by going camping though. You’ll need a sturdy tent and some other kit, but then you can go virtually anywhere. And if it rains, you can stay cosy under cover and tell ghost stories or play board games. Or why not embrace the rain, heading off for a walk and finding the biggest puddles to splash in?
Visit a museum- If you have a look online at what’s going on in your local area, you’ll probably find that many museums are free and also have special family-friendly events on over Easter. Get out and take advantage of these fantastic local venues, learn something new and get to grips with some hands-on exhibitions.
Easter egg hunting- It wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt. You can either join an organised hunt in your local area or plan your own in the back garden. So make sure you stock up on a load of chocolate.
Bonnet making- This is a fun and creative way to spend time over Easter, making a beautiful Easter bonnet decorated with feathers, paint, glitter or whatever else you like. Don’t forget to have a little fashion show at the end!
Legoland!- as a child I LOVED visiting here, not too sure my parents enjoyed it so much, but they always say they love how happy it made me being there.
Bike rides- Get out and explore your local area, challenging your family to plan a different route every day (or every other day, if you need a rest). It could be a woodland walk, a canal-side cycle path, a day in the park or whatever you like.
