We know that, at some point over the Easter break all parents will hear the dreaded words, “I’m bored!”
A few weeks ago we called out to our Frugi Facebook fans for some help with how to avoid this, and keep the kids entertained over the Easter break, and we got a great response!
- Hunt for Henny – our own contribution for the Easter fun, just simply print & cut out Henny using our template available here, hide her indoors or outdoors (weather dependent) and send your little ones out to retrieve her, maybe even sweeten the deal with some treats as rewards!
- Duck Racing – Using plastic ducks, gather some friends together for this yellow squeaky version of pooh sticks! Race your ducks down a stream for prizes, but don’t forget to take them home after as bath time wouldn’t be the same without them (plus it’s not very good for the environment to leave plastic floating around)! Idea from Nicky Townend who is attending a duck race in Devoran, Cornwall.
- Easter Egg Nest Cakes – we loved this idea from Karen English, Erica Bourn, Fiona Barclay though hopefully we will have more luck than Helen Diack who managed to burn the chocolate!! You might find our Frugi ‘How to make Scrummy Yummy Easter Egg Nests!’ instructions useful for this.
- National Trust Easter Egg Trail – this was a firm favourite with most of you. It’s a great way to get your little ones out in the fresh air with a tasty reward at the end (yum). Their website at www.eastereggtrail.com has downloadable Easter Egg Trails for you to use at home no matter what the weather!
- Decorating Hard Boiled Easter Eggs – a fab seasonal suggestion from Rachel Mills, Karen English , Miriam Maugis, Marie Jackson and particularly Tracey Bailey who then takes her decorated eggs for a roll down some dunes for a really smashing time!
- Egg Heads – Create a new friend this Easter! No matter how you like your boiled eggs in the morning remember to save the egg shells to create your new Easter friend complete with cress hair! Good luck with yours Amy Shawcross, Find Frugi’s ‘How to make a new friend this Easter!’ instructions here.
- Egg Box Daffodils – This very crafty idea from Marie Jackson can transform simple egg boxes into beautiful cards or even bunting. We found a lovely blog for bunting here: nurturestore.co.uk/daffodil-bunting
No matter what you do or create for the Easter break don’t forget to send us photos of the Easter fun!
