This week we are having our school Easter party. This is a very exciting time because we not only have delicious Easter treats to eat, an Easter egg hunt and egg and spoon races but we have a special visitor....
It also means the start of the school holidays. Yay !!
The weather is just perfect at the moment and I have been making the most of it by doing many of our activities outside.
Here are two wonderful outdoor Easter activities that are not the usual egg hunt or egg and spoon races. Don't get me wrong, I love them and as I said we will be doing both activities at our Easter party.
EASTER MUD PIES AND COOKING
The children absolutely loved this activity. Some items I added included...
Recycled bottles- filled with coloured water
Recycled honey containers- draw eggs on them so they are like Easter baskets
Egg cartons- of course
Recycled laundry powder scoops
A variety of nuts and twigs
Recycled cooking utensils and pots and pans
THE EASTER BUNNY'S HOUSE
I turned a washing machine box into a little house that is a perfect size for 3 year olds and the Easter Bunny to hide in.
I covered the box, drew a simple Easter picture and put it outside with a selection of paints.
The children painted the house and when it was dry I cut a door and put some pillows in it. The children loved decorating this cute little house and it is a fun little place to sit and play.
