We can always rely on the great British weather not behave, especially at Easter! It might not be time to get out the sun cream and flip flops, but here are some brilliant Easter themed indoor activities to give the little munchkins a break from scoffing a pile of Easter Eggs!

Easter Egg Matching Game

We’ve created a fun Easter Egg Hunt style game which you can play at home with the kids! Simply print off the activity sheet, cut out the egg pieces, and hide around the house. The children then need to hunt for the pieces and put the eggs back together. 🙂

Egg Decorating

Egg decorating is so much fun and keeps children entertained for hours. You can use paints, glitter, stickers and anything crafty that you can get your hands on but first you need to blow out the contents of the egg. Here’s how to do it –

  • Pierce a small hole at both ends of the egg and blow into the egg (do this over a bowl) and the contents of the egg will come out.
  • If the egg appears stuck, then swirl it around and blow again.
  • Finally hold your finger over the bottom hole and place the top under running water, shake the egg and blow again.
  • Leave the egg to dry and then they’re ready to decorate.

Indoor Egg and Spoon Race

The key for this activity is to use coloured plastic eggs, or if you are heading down the more traditional route then boil the egg first so that it’s hard boiled otherwise this could end up as quite a messy activity. Arrange the children at the start line with an egg and a spoon each, and when you say go the children race to the finish line without dropping their egg. If they drop it, they need to start again! You could make the race more difficult by adding obstacles!

Springtime Easter Nests

1 bag of Mini Eggs

How to make:

  • Melt chocolate in a saucepan over a low heat
  • Stir in syrup and and rice crispies – watch out for taste testers!
  • Spoon mixture into cake cases, top with a Mini Egg (or two) and leave to cool
  • Enjoy!

Easter Egg Necklace

Easter Egg necklaces are so easy to make and keep the little ones amused for ages. All you need is some string, plastic eggs and a grown up to make a hole through the egg so that string can be threaded through!

We hope that the children enjoy these activities and have a brilliant Easter despite our great British weather! 🙂
