Easter egg hunt
An Easter egg hunt has become a tradition in many households, but it’s a tradition we all like to keep. If you want to spruce up your Easter hunting come up with little puzzles or riddles for your kids to solve while they’re on the hunt for their favourite chocolate eggs.
If you have colourful eggs assign your kids to a colour and see who can find all of theirs the fastest – just remember where you’ve hidden them all!
Get creative with your kids by decorating hard boiled eggs! Colouring eggs can bring the whole family together for a fun, carefree, crafty afternoon. From dunking them into dyes, coating them with glitter or becoming the next Picasso there are plenty of Easter DIY egg designs that you and your family can enjoy no matter the skill level!
Make Easter baskets
Another fun and unique crafting idea for the family is to make your own Easter baskets! This Easter craft requires glue, ribbons, decorations and a balloon!
