Happy Easter!

Schools were supposed to be finishing up last Friday for two weeks for Easter break and although things haven't been that certain recently we're hoping to spend Easter as we usually would; with family (and extended family via video chats), and with friends (also via video chats).

As a result of having to spend lots of this time isolated, we've decided to share some activities that you could be doing with your children at home. Here's some of our favourites.

'My 2020 Covid-19 Time Capsule' created by Long Creations helps to teach children that they are living through history during this time. It contains a variety of activities, games and colouring sheets all designed to make memories for the future.

The challenge, complete tasks to earn points. Tasks include make your bed four days in a row, help prepare a meal, read for 15 minutes, and our favourite, have a paper aeroplane contest.

Finally, we love the Easter Scavenger Hunt created by Happiness is Homemade. The whole family will have fun with this silly Easter scavenger hunt, and it’s guaranteed to add some joy and excitement to your Easter morning! Firstly, you need to print the clues available here. Then, after you've hidden the clues all you have to do is simply hiding the eggs!

We hope you have as much fun with these activities as we do!
