Ears to an egg-stra fun Easter!

Are you looking for other ways to celebrate the Easter season? Whether you are looking for things to do at home or activities to get your kids hopping out the door – we have some hopping great activities for you to try with your family.  

Let’s get crafty!

We consulted our team of expert Educators, and they gave us some top tips about the benefits of crafting. When a child gets involved in craft activities, it can have many positive impacts. They feel encouraged to experiment and get creative, strengthening problem-solving skills and it often puts a big smile on their face. There are many ways for children to engage with their creative side, so here we have some easter themed crafts. Check them out!

Cardboard Tube Bunnies

Transform recycled items into cute animal figures! You can use empty toilet rolls for the bodies, colourful napkins for clothes and card stock for the bunny ears. You can use any coloured pens you like to draw on faces!

Easter Bunny Handprints

Use any colour paint you like to create a cute bunny figure! Once the paint is dry, you can use black pen to draw on the eyes, whiskers, and mouth.
