6 Fun ways to add activity to your Easter
1. Active egg hunt
With older kids, a classic egg hunt might be activity enough if you challenge them with finishing times, quantities collected, or even make it a race. Obviously, only you know if your kids are ready to handle a little friendly competition, and if they are, it’s a great way to intensify the egg hunt.
2. Bunny hop
Have a dance party. Whether you’re at a big family gathering or it’s just you and your kids, there’s nothing like some good old-fashioned dancing. Turn on some favourite tunes and everyone can show off their best moves. And if you really want to include that famous rabbit-y dance?
3. Leapfrog/bunny game
Leapfrog is always a fun family game. Pretending to be bunnies instead of frogs makes it perfect for Easter.
4. Animal friends
Even little toddlers can get in on the Easter fun with our animal activity. Have them pretend to be some of their favourite spring animals (chicks, bunnies, and ducklings come to mind) and they’ll soon be peeping, hopping, waddling, and quacking their way along the road to developing physical literacy.
5. Obstacle course/relay race
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.
6. Community egg hunt outdoors
