Easter activities


Some Easter ideas to try out as a family:


Design a family egg hunt – why not turn it into an Easter treasure map


We missed out on our annual decorate an egg competition – why not do your own at home – send pictures to school and we will put as many as we can on the website or our twitter account


Make some Easter nest cakes or go design your own Easter cakes and show us the results


Take a look at Year 2’s Easter dance that we missed out on after we had to cancel the Easter Hat Parade. Choose your own song and design dance.


If the weather is nice, get yourself out into the garden and have a family egg and spoon race – no cheating mums and dads.


Make an Easter card to send to a friend or relative. Perhaps during your one walk a day with adult supervision, you could stop at a post box so that it can be delivered to their house


Get poetic this Easter by creating your own acrostic poem using the letters in the word ‘Easter’.


Draw or colour in an Easter or Spring picture – take a picture and send them in – we will try and display as many as we can.


Set up a simple obstacle course in the backyard or even the living room and give it a fun Easter theme. Lots of hopping, eggs on spoons, egg throwing and catching, and maybe even some bowling with a hard-boiled egg to knock over the pins.


Make chocolate fondue. You'll need 400g dark chocolate, 85g unsalted butter, 284ml carton double cream, 300ml milk and a range of items to dip - fruit and marshmallows area great choice.


Put the chocolate, butter, cream and milk into a saucepan, then heat gently, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted and the sauce is smooth. Dip your goodies in straight away.


Make an Easter paper plate egg basket. Visit for the full step by step instructions. 


Bunny Handprint. You can make a bunny hand print card or paper. Simple paint your child’s hand with paint but paint just two fingers so you can create ears for the bunny.  Draw your bunnies whiskers, mouth, nose and eyes or add some eyes and pompoms.

Get busy in the kitchen and wow the family by making White Chocolate Fudge.
