10 fun things to do this Easter

Although social rules have been slightly relaxed in parts of the country, many attractions and restaurants remain closed, so we have provided 10 fun activities to do this Easter at home and outside.

1. Have an Easter egg hunt

Get your kids involved and have a traditional outside Easter egg hunt this weekend. Or if you can’t get out why not have a virtual egg hunt with family and friends or an indoor egg hunt?
For the virtual egg hunt, you can use a video-calling platform such as Skype, FaceTime or Zoom to connect with friends and family so they can join in on finding the eggs around the house. The guest can read clues and work together in finding the hiding places.

2. Watch some movie and TV classics

Grab some popcorn and cosy up in front of the TV to watch some family-friendly movies and shows. For some ideas, check out our recommended streaming picks.

3. Get decorating!

Have a competition with friends and family on who can decorate the best egg to make it fun and competitive! Check out CBeebies egg template for ideas.

4. Do some exercise

Try and make exercising fun! Staying active doesn’t have to be boring, you can incorporate dance and music. Here are some apps and platforms that you and your family can use.

5. Have digital meet-ups

Kids may miss their friends over the break so why not have a digital meet up? There’s a huge range of ways they can connect digitally, so here are some tips to help facilitate safe and rewarding interactions for children and teens.

6. Train your kids to spot fake news

If you have a spare 20 mins or so, test your and your kids’ fake news knowledge with our Find the Fake interactive quiz.

Grab some snacks and games and head over to your local park to enjoy the Spring weather, an alternative if you do not have a garden.
