Here are a few tips from an experienced mother of two young boys on entertaining children over the Easter holidays.
These ideas below always seem to be great things to do with the children. It needn’t be expensive to make as you can use accessories from around your home.
- Table decorations (Easter Tree & Easter Nests)
- Easter Egg decorating
- Banners, Masks & Easter bonnets
- Painting, colouring, glueing & sticking
Also take a look at hobbycraft’s website as they have some good ideas, too.
Chocolate rice crispy cakes with mini eggs
As an alternative to the rice crispies, why not try using Shredded Wheat which make great nests!
Using a microwave to melt the chocolate:
(If using the hob to melt chocolate, use a glass dish over a saucepan of boiling water, and continuously stir the chocolate, until melted).
These are great to do either at home with friends & family or at an organised event. Just make sure you know roughly how many people so you have enough supplies to go around. You can have some clues to make it more interesting.
