People often celebrate Easter by eating chocolates, buns and cakes. Try making a sweet treat with your children to enjoy with the family.
An easy option is to make Easter nests:
Children to break the shredded wheat and mix with the melted chocolate. Children need to then add the mixture onto a cupcake holder. To finish off, you could add mini chocolate eggs with a chick on the Easter nests.

At Easter time, lots of flowers start growing in the ground and on the trees. Go for a walk around a park or a garden and see what flowers and plants you can see growing.
Look at the leaves on the trees, what colour are they? How are they different to when we observed them in Autumn and Winter?
Can you draw a picture of what you can see and label it? E.g. tall tree, green leaves, colourful blossoms, green grass.

Decorate some hard-boiled eggs, to make them bright and colourful. You could use pens or paint and add some extra decorations, such as stickers, feathers, pom-poms or googly eyes.
Alternatively, children could decorate their own Easter egg on the template below.

Can your children make an Easter basket with an empty cardboard box and decorate it with colourful paint or Easter pictures.
When your children’s baskets are dried, have an Easter egg hunt! Hide some Easter eggs for the children to find. How many eggs have they found? Can they count them?
