Easter Activities for Kids: the best things to do as a family this Easter

EASTER is the perfect opportunity to gather all the family members in one place and have some quality time together.

So if you're looking for some inspiration of how to keep the little ones busy, check out our round up the best family activities for kids.

When is Easter?

This year Easter falls on a Sunday of April 12.

It's generally regarded as the most important feast day for Christians, but many other cultures celebrate Easter too without religious connotations.

What are some fun easter games?

Easter is usually filled with games, chocolate and laughter.

And kids are having the most fun and there are many games designed to keep them entertained for hours.

You can first think about traditional games such as egg hop relay race, egg treasure hunt and Easter egg rolling race.

How do you plan an Easter egg hunt?

An Easter egg hunt a very traditional activity mainly carried on the main day of Easter.

In order to plan a good hunt, you'll need to consider a few things in advance: how many kids are going play, and how much space do you have for hiding the eggs.

This can help you to determine how many Easter eggs you'll need to buy in advance to make sure there's going to be enough for everyone who is participating.

Don't forget to buy baskets so that every kid would have the right equipment to succeed in the hunt.

Try to spread out logistically and even the eggs in the area where you're planning your game.

There are also nation-wide organised hunts you and your family can participate in.

Check out Easter Egg Hunts organised by National Trust, and Easter activities by English Heritage.

What can I do with my kids on Good Friday?

This year Good Friday falls on April 10.

If you're looking for an activity that you and your kids could do on this day, think about talking about what a Good Friday means to your family.

You can also go a Good Friday service or engage in an activity with your community.
