Easter activities for you and the kids

The Easter holidays are only a couple of weeks away and with lockdown restrictions relaxing we won’t be restricted to the house this year.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite indoor and outdoor Easter activities to keep you and the kids busy.

Take a step back in time

English Heritage are running covid-friendly Easter events throughout the UK at over 24 of their historic sites. Running between 29 March – 18 April take the kids to one of the Easter Adventure Quests. Explore the outdoor trails, crack the clues and search for dragon eggs to win your chocolate reward.

You will need to book tickets and is recommended you do before hand to not avoid disappointment.

Step into spring

There’s not a more classic sign of spring then spotting daffodils. The National Trust have daffodil gardens where you can enjoy some of the best blooms and treat your senses to the magic of spring, which we’re sure the kids will love.

Easter egg treasure hunt

If you want to stay closer to home then an egg treasure hunt is one of the best Easter activities to keep the kids entertained. If you want to make it a little different than usual write clues to help them work out where the Easter bunny has left their eggs.

There are some great scavenger hunt games and accessories on Etsy if you don’t fancy getting crafty. Plus you’ll get 1.3% back for your kids with Etsy too!
