As we head into the long weekend, here are some of our fun Easter-themed activities that might help you and your family burn off the extra energy gained from the all the chocolate temptations coming our way! Enjoy your time together everyone ❤️
1. Set Up an Obstacle Course
Parents, siblings, neighbours and friends can all participate, which makes this activity super versatile. If the weather cooperates, you can even take the fun outdoors!
To begin, we gave my daughter a set of bunny ears. Then, we let Lee decide on which components she wanted to incorporate in the obstacle course, as well as the 'rules'. For instance, she decided that you must complete the entire course only by hopping, and could not exceed 20 hops in total! And halfway through the course, she would direct you to move your bunny headband to your midsection (yes, it was considerably harder to maintain that position as an adult!)
2. Turn an Egg Hunt into a Sensory Bin
3. Create an Alphabet Scavenger Hunt
Another non-edible way to reuse those plastic Easter eggs! If you have a set of magnetic numbers or letters, they are a perfect fit inside the eggs. Have you child look for the hidden eggs, once they find and open the egg, mark off the letter they found on the master list. And the hunt continues until all 26 letters have been found.
As they become more advanced, you can have them find letters to spell words too.
Happy Easter! 🐰
