Easter arts, crafts and games

Fun games and arts and crafts are a big part of Easter and hopefully we can look forward to some nice weather to enjoy time outside with family and friends. Here are some of our best tips of things to do together as a family.

Fun games for the whole family
An Easter egg hunt is fun for the whole family and can easily be adapted to suit the participants age and skill. A few variations are:

  1. Coil a string through the garden and attach one end to the egg and give the other end to the child. They can then follow the string to the Easter egg treasure.  
  2. Place coloured feathers in the garden and hide the egg by one of them. Let the search begin!  
  3. Make a treasure map leading directly to the egg or to other spots where you have hidden clues as to where to find the Easter egg. The clues combined reveal the egg’s hiding place.

Arts and crafts – make your own Easter bunny
Take a coloured piece of paper, draw around your hand and cut out the shape. Cut of the paper middle finger – the index and ring finger will now look like “ears”. Fold the thumb and little finger to look like ”arms”. Finish by drawing details like eyes, nose, mouth whiskers and feet on the bunny.
