Activities to do at home

  • Make some Mini Egg Fudge-

Adapt our candy cane 2 ingredient recipe to an Easter version. You can find the recipe here.

  • Easter bonnet Parade

Make an Easter Bonnet at home with whatever you have laying around the house and have a parade through the house.

  • Make some Hot cross buns!

We've found a no yeast recipe so if you would like some tasty hot cross buns this year and have self raising flour and yogurt you can find the recipe here: 

Check out our instagram reels and stories for more Easter baking ideas.

  • Decorate some eggs 

If you are lucky enough to have some eggs in the children could use them to decorate. In order not to waste food, you could make a small hole in the bottom of the egg and drain the egg out first which you can then use for cooking. Lots of fun.

Easter arts and craft activities-

 The Mill house recently published some great ideas for Easter arts and Crafts using toilet rolls including the below which we thought were fabulour.

There's also a range of Easter printables here .

With a bit of luck the warmer weather will soon be on the way and therefore you may wish to use the time to explore a new park or open space, we have some suggestions here: 

Wishing you a wonderful Easter

Lots of Love
