With Easter 2020 only a month away, chocolate eggs are in the supermarkets, the bank holidays are coming up and the little ones in your family are all abuzz that the Easter bunny will be paying a visit soon! So whether you are spending time with your family for an Easter lunch or you just want to plan a themed afternoon, we round up some fun activities that you can do with your grandchildren for some extra magic this Easter 2020.
1. Easter Egg Hunts
Perhaps the more obvious activity that children (and grown ups as well) love at Easter is, of course, Easter egg hunts! Not only are they a great way to get them out and about but they are fun and exciting! Dependant on the age of the children, you may want to stage a relatively simple hunt without any clues and with easy to find eggs dotted around the back garden with grown ups providing assistance.
If, however, you are looking for something a little more challenging – you may want to check out this BBC Good Food Easter Egg Hunt with printable clues and tips on how to put on a great hunt this Easter 2020 with some homemade goodies to boot!
2. Get Crafty
Arts and crafts have been tried and tested to get all ages on board and there is no greater bonding experience than to create something together.
From painting eggs to creating some paper bunnies or an Easter wreath to hang up in your home – Good Housekeeping have put together a list of fun and easy crafts that you can do at home this Easter 2020 without breaking the bank. A quick craft can also serve as a cute party favour for your young guests to take home with them.
In line with the arts and crafts that you have made, you can decorate the house or your table ready for your Easter 2020 feast! Whether you have made bunny bunting to hang on the windows or you have arranged some tulips to feature, the little ones will love the responsibility of deciding where to put the decorations and how to set the table.
Put some fun music on in the background and it turns into a great family activity!
4. Gift Giving
What better way to celebrate Easter 2020 than to teach your grandchildren the importance of giving back? Making Easter baskets together is a great way to show them how important it is to spread kindness and to express gratitude to people around them.
It may be that they want to give their teacher a gift or they have an elderly neighbour who’s spirits can be lifted – make an activity out of creating and decorating the baskets and then add things like chocolate eggs, soaps, honeys or jams and little uplifting notes like “you’re egg-sellent”.
5. Bake Together
You might say we have saved the best for last! There is no better excuse to indulge in some baked (and hopefully chocolatey) treats than Easter! There are so many easy recipes for little bakers to help with in the kitchen – everything from chocolate nests to hot cross buns and bunny biscuits, get your bake on with the grandchildren this Easter 2020!
