Egg and Spoon Race
This is a classic for a reason as it’s always entertaining! Balance an egg on a dessert spoon and try to get it to the finish line without dropping the egg. Hardboil the eggs beforehand to make this game less messy as you’re best to play this one outside. Make things trickier by adding obstacles, or having competitiors carry the spoon in their mouths.
An easy and entertaining way of keeping kids busy over Easter weekend. Combine 1/2 cup of boiling water with 1 tsp of vinegar and 10 drops of food colouring in a bowl. Dip eggs in the dye for 3-5 mins and use a slotted spoon to remove. Experiment with different food colouring mixtures, dip half an egg in each colour, or paint and decorate your dip-dyed eggs.
Easter cookie ideas are endless! Grab some cookie cutters and colourful icing and get to work. Package up with cute ribbon and you've got yourself some thoughtful Easter gifts.
An inexpensive and fun activity using potatos, kumara or large carrots. Slice your vegetable and use a knife to cut fun shapes. Create fun Easter artworks with bunny and egg shapes. Dip your stamps into paint or a stamp pad and you'll have a great crafternoon!
