This Easter will certainly be one to remember, but that doesn’t need to be because of the things you didn’t do.
There’s still the chance to do egg-citing Easter activities, crafts, games and adventures and have the best Easter yet!
We’ve stuck to using simple materials that you would likely have at home already or just improvise where needed…
Why not do some Easter Art, even better make it into an Easter card! Receiving something through the post at the moment is extra egg-citing, something from the outside world!!! Why not make some Easter cards for your friends and family, both fun to make and lovely to receive.
Use a fork to create this gorgeous fluffy chick!!
Footprint painting Easter style!
Hand & finger print chicks
Easter Toilet Roll Crafts
We should have plenty of these at home right now, so the perfect base for some Easter crafts.
Toilet Roll Bunnies
Toilet Roll Easter Basket
Toilet Roll Easter Bunny Prints
Easter Egg Box Crafts
A cute way to display chocolate eggs
Egg Carton Flowers
Egg Carton Chicks
Egg & Spoon Race
Is this bringing back bad memories from your school days?! The kids will love decorating the egg first (hard boiled) and then having a few races (until the eggs are too smashed to carry on!). The running will burn off a few chocolate calories!
This one could get messy!
Easter Bunting and Wreaths
We are spending most if not all of our time in our homes right now so let’s get them decorated and feeling Eastery! (is that a word?!)
Easter Egg Wreath
Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
I’ve “bulked out” our Easter Egg hunts with extra bits the last couple of years, it makes it last longer for the kids, makes it more egg-citing and makes it about more than just the chocolate.
Card bunny cutouts to follow or find
Clues hidden to find & solve
A bunny foot print trail
St Leonard’s Hospice have some printable Easter hunt pictures on their website too. take a look HERE
Pin the Tail on the Bunny
The good, old fashioned, fun for all game!
You’d have to wear the hat when playing right?!
A simple version could be easily made a home
Some simple extra craft activity ideas….
Simple but effective
A lovely one for the younger kids too
Rock painting is really”in” at the moment, either painting or with felt pens
Easter Egg Ribbon Weaving
This works best with ribbon, but works fine with strips of paper/card or even wool. Happy Weaving!
Easter Tuff Tray
We love our tuff tray! Contained messy play. Obviously the pretty pictures soon get destroyed once the kids get set loose but it’s all fun.
Why not have a game of Easter bingo? There’s plenty of free templates available online so it’s just a matter of printing some off and deciding who’s going to be the bingo caller!
Why not make it an extra special cinema experience with the lights off, some popcorn/sweets/Easter Eggs and all snuggle up as a family. Film ideas: Hop, Rise of the Guardians or Peter Rabbit
If you still have room after all the chocolate, then why not squeeze a bit of Easter baking in.
The BBC WEBSITE has loads of easy Easter baking ideas, from the good old Easter nest cakes, to Easter Egg blondies and Easter garibaldi biscuits. Yummy!
Share the Love this Easter
The Wilberforce Trust designed and ran the first Easter Egg hunt in the UK that was adapted for visually impaired children. It was an amazing success and brought the children a lot of joy. Due to the Coronavirus we have had to stop the egg hunt however I can’t let the children go without an Easter Egg from Club Wilber, especially when they are isolated and confused. Therefore with some of my team we are looking at being the Club Wilber bunnies and delivering to our families so we can bring a bit of joy to the children courtesy of Club Wilber. If you have any spare pounds or pennies to help us buy eggs then I would be extremely grateful. Click HERE to donate.
St Leonard’s Hospice
They have had some fantastic Easter colouring sheets and Activity sheets designed, which are free to download from their website. However, if you are in a position where you are able to make a small donations, this would be greatly appreciated by the hospice who have had to cancel the majority of their fundraising events due to the Coronavirus.
Happy Easter Crafting!
There’s plenty more on the Mumbler website too, HERE is the link to our Easter colouring in pages.
We’d LOVE to see your Easter crafts! Do share with us on Facebook in the York Mumbler Chat Group and inspire others to get crafting too!
N.B Whilst we’d have loved to have made all of these crafts ourselves, we haven’t had the chance to yet!!! Therefore all the photos used are taken from Pinterest and not owned by Mumbler.
