12 egg-citing Easter activities for Lockdown Kids
Here are some ideas to keep you busy at Easter-time and throughout the Easter holidays.
1. Hunt for chocolate eggs in the Garden as many times as you like!
We always have fun hiding and finding the Easter eggs several times over Easter before we devour them. You can include clues, forfeits, treasure maps, hopscotch, and obstacles to add to the intrigue. Towards the end of holidays, some public places will hopefully be open for Easter Activities. We also enjoy egg and spoon races in the garden. Last year we did a Maths-inspired Easter egg Hunt with Daniel Lin at Help Your Kids Maths and he is hosting a Hunt online this year too.
