Family fun for the Easter break

It’s hard to keep the whole family entertained during the spring break so we’ve compiled some Easter holiday ideas that can be enjoyed by everyone. Let us know what your plans are this Easter!

Explore the outdoors

If you’re looking for a fun activity that will help burn off some chocolate egg-induced calories, then it’s time to head outside. Kids will love an outdoor adventure, especially if the weather plays nice.

For something different, check out Go Ape at one of 29 locations in the UK. Their Tree Top Junior Adventure course is a fun-filled hour of canopy exploring, trail blazing and obstacles for the whole family to enjoy.

Organise an Easter egg hunt

This one is easy peasy and all you need is some small, wrapped chocolate eggs and great hiding places!

Scatter chocolate eggs in the garden, or home if it’s raining, and encourage the kids to search high and low for the chocolate treats.

If you don’t mind having a full house or garden, get the neighbours’ kids involved in the hunt and split larger groups into teams.

The team that uncovers the most eggs wins a prize – and the Easter bunny can decide whether that’s a larger chocolate egg or an alternative to even more chocolate!

Feast on an Easter picnic

Ideal for using up leftover Sunday Roast and chocolate eggs, an Easter picnic is perfect for  dining alfresco when the spring sun shines.

Surprise yourself and the rest of the family by cooking up inventive picnic finger food from excess lamb and chicken roasts.

Try adding lamb or chicken to skewers and create homemade dips from natural yogurt and spices.

Sick of chocolate eggs? Melt them over a pan of boiling water and coat some strawberries with the smooth sauce for a delicious (semi-healthy) picnic treat.

If you’re looking for some new picnic accessories check out our outdoor dining range, with napkins, coolbags and picnic blankets in bright spring shades.

Get arty

For days when spring showers just won’t stop, it’s time to get creative with your Easter entertainment.

Budding artists will love painting hard boiled eggs and making Easter bonnets in bright colours.

Encourage them to take snaps of their holiday fun and create an album of memories to look back on – add fun items to the album like theme park and cinema tickets, shells from seaside trips and ice lolly sticks.
