Make an Easter egg hunt basket
If your kids are planning on going on an Easter hunt, then this basket is a must. It’s easy to make and they can decorate it in their favourite colours. You can download a template and follow a simple step by step how-to guide online.
Decorative items can be anything fun and colourful, which are easy to apply with a spot of glue, and the end result is perfect for gathering up all your eggs in the Easter hunt!
Get outside to a park
As we head into the long weekend, now is a good time to head out to a park or garden.
Get the kids involved in planting some veggies and plants at places like The Good Garden. If you’re in a smaller space, a vertical garden is a simple way to bring greenery to a balcony or courtyard.
Make your own decorative Easter Eggs
This egg-cellent project will not only be a fun activity for the family but will also look great as Easter decorations around the home.
To complete this project, you’ll need a paintbrush, scissors, hard-boiled eggs that have been cooled, some paint sample pots and coloured ribbons. To start, paint each egg in a solid colour and allow to dry.
Once dry, paint on patterns and allow to dry. Then, cut ribbon to desired lengths, and loop around eggs as shown, securing at the top and allowing enough ribbon to suspend eggs from your chosen branch.
With a long weekend ahead of you, it’s a perfect time to refresh the home with a fresh lick of paint where it’s needed most.
From upcycling a piece of furniture to painting a fence that needs some TLC, a block of three days off in a row is handy for getting painting projects out of the way.
Kids also love to have a go of painting themselves, so give them a small painting area to look after and let them be creative. They’ll be super proud of themselves once their area is full of colour.
Visit your local library
Exploring your local library is a perfect all-weather activity, and best of all, it’s free.
Load up on books to read together and you’ve covered off more than one day’s worth of entertainment in one hit!
