Easter is one of the most enjoyable times of the year for children. It's an opportunity to have fun, get dressed up, and eat plenty of chocolate! As a parent, it can be challenging to keep your kids entertained throughout the day, especially during an Easter family gathering. Luckily, we have some fun ideas that will keep your little ones entertained and happy all day long!
Games and Activities
Easter egg hunts are a classic way to keep kids entertained! You can hide chocolate eggs or even small toys and trinkets around the garden or house, and let your children have a blast finding them. Another idea is to decorate eggs together as a family. You can use paints, stickers, and markers to create unique designs.
If you want to keep the children occupied indoors, you could set up a craft table and get them to make Easter cards, bunny ears, or decorate their own eggs.
Entertaining Children During Lunch
It can be challenging to keep your kids sitting still during a big family lunch, but there are ways to make it more enjoyable for them! Try to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere at the table by using colourful table decorations and setting a themed table with an Easter tablecloth, napkins, and Easter-themed cutlery. You could even place a small Easter treat on each child's plate to get them excited about the meal. If possible, consider seating the children together, so they can chat and have fun together.
Dressing Appropriately for an Easter Family Get Together
Spring can be a tricky time to dress for, especially in the UK when the weather can be so unpredictable. A good tip is to dress in layers, so you can easily add or remove clothing depending on the temperature. Dress your children in lightweight clothes that can easily be covered with a jacket or cardigan if it gets chilly. For girls, a cute floral dress with a denim jacket can be a great look. For boys, a pair of shorts with a lightweight jumper can look stylish and be comfortable.
Keeping your children entertained during Easter can be a challenge (don't we know it!), but with a little creativity, you can create a fun-filled day that everyone will enjoy. From Easter egg hunts to decorating eggs and making crafts, there are plenty of activities to keep your little ones occupied. Use these tips to make sure your Easter family gathering is memorable, fun and entertaining for all.
