Plan an Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt on #Daysoutwithkids
Get creative and make your own Easter egg hunt. In the past we have done a night time one with glow sticks in plastic eggs, made clues for the kids to solve and even hidden little challenges in plastic eggs for them to complete.

Go Pond Dipping

If you have got a pond get a small bucket and net and examine what you find. You will probably be surprised by how much wildlife calls your pond home. Use this website if you need help identifying what you have found.

Make some Easter Cards

2) Cut the egg in half using a zig zag pattern
3) Cut out an elongated semicircle out of yellow card and draw on some eyes and beak.
4) Arrange the chick and the bottom of the egg onto the card and stick down, then stick on the top of the egg.
