Easter Traditions and Activities
Now that Easter is over, and the kids are back in school, my whole week has been about having conversations with other parents about ‘What we did for Easter’. Here in the UK, children get at least two whole weeks off for Easter so there’s absolutely a huge amount of time to fill with activities. Sometimes it can be a little daunting so I asked around to other parents on how they fill this time, and I’m happy to share this list of Easter Traditions and Activities and hopefully you can find it helpful in filling all the time off.
A Woodland Easter Egg Hunt
If you would like your children to feel a little more in touch with nature, then setting up your egg hunt in a nearby park or forest is a fantastic idea, instead of just around the home. Head over to DollyDowsie to see more photos from her hunt last year with her little ones, and get more tips on what you should bring/do for a memorable Easter hunt.
Easter Parade NYC
So many families travel since there’s such a big gap for school. If you’re in/near New York City or travelling there, you should absolutely check out the Easter Bonnet Parade.
