10 Exciting Easter Activities for Kids

Remember:
If you book in at our lodge over the Easter Weekend you can arrange your own Easter Egg Hunt for your children and play Easter games on our rolling green lawns.

 

Here are some of our suggested activities for Easter:

  1. The Easter Bunny Tracker App. – Easterbunnytracker.com
    Try this for something new! The Easter Bunny Tracker app officially launched in 2021 on iOS on the Apple App Store and it’s free-to-track. So now you can track the Easter Bunny this year on your iPhone or iPad. The app has been available on Android since Easter 2020.

  3. Download Easter ZOOM backgrounds before your virtual Easter celebration
    Cheer up your Zoom video call with dyed eggs, bunnies, flowers, and more spring staples.

    Not sure how to add Zoom backgrounds? Follow this simple how-to:

    • Download the background of your choice. Pick a few options, so you can switch them between parties or meetings.
    • After you sign into a Zoom call, look for an icon that says “Stop video” in the bottom left corner of the window. Click the arrow to the right side of it, and select “Choose a virtual background.”
    • Upload as many Zoom backgrounds as you’d like, and rotate through your selections.

    Now that you know the basics, browse through these Easter Zoom backgrounds and download any that catch your eye.

  4. Make and Easter Egg breakfast with bacon, eggs and cheese

  6. Make toilet roll bunnies
    • First paint your toilet paper rolls white. You may need to do a few coats of paint to get them white. We like to use white enamel/acrylic paint for painting with, since it cuts down on the number of coats you may need to do.
    • Make the bunny ears by tracing out ears on white cardboard and then making a smaller ear insert with some coloured paper of your choice. Glue two small googly eyes to your paper roll.
    • Then twist three small pipe cleaners around each other and glue this down to the paper roll.
    • Glue a small pom pom on top of the pipe cleaners for the nose.
    • Glue the ears to the inside of the top of your paper roll. Then draw on the mouth with a sharp nibbed black pen.

     

  7. Don’t just dye the eggs – decorate differently
    Don’t just dye the hard boiled eggs, try something new! Give the kids crayons, adhesive gems, paint, stickers, or Washi decorating tape or yarn. See what they come up with.

  9. Colour-code the eggs – to avoid disappointments
    It’s a major disaster when one kid finds all the eggs a few minutes into the egg hunt. To make sure this does not happen allocate a specific egg colour to each child and colour code the eggs to make sure little Bongani and little Debbie get their fair share.
    OR
    To make it fair, each child is allowed to collect only a certain number of eggs.
     
  10. The Golden Egg – a special prize
    A little competition is fun. Try hiding one special egg (maybe a gold or silver one) that anyone can find—and that egg becomes an extra special prize.

  12. Make a Hop-a-long Bunny Trail round the garden or the block.
    How do you make Easter bunny footprints.

    • Print out Easter Bunny footprint template onto heavy paper (like cardboard) that will hold the weight of the flour.
    • Cut out the footprints to create a stencil template.
    • Sift flour and sprinkle a layer onto the footprint template.

    Let the children hop-a-long, following the footprints. Good exercise before all the sweetie fun.
     

  13. The Egg Push
    Each player needs to roll an egg with his nose, and only his nose, from start to finish. Whoever does it first – wins the race. We suggest doing this on a carpet.

  15. The Egg Walk
    Place two (or more) eggs on the plate or on a spoon and let the players walk from start to finish without dropping the egg.
