The Easter Holidays are coming up, and what better way to make special family memories than doing some fun-filled activities. To help get you started we have listed our 15 favourite Easter family activities.


1.Egg and spoon race

Try this good old-fashioned outdoor game after your Easter egg hunt is over! Egg and spoon races date back to the late 1800s.

2.Jelly bean guessing game

Simply fill a jar with jelly beans and ask each family member to guess how many candies there are. Winner (the closest without going over) takes all!

3.Read Easter or Spring themed children's books

Gather the kids and curl up with a good book, especially if Easter falls on a rainy day this year.

4.Plant flowers

Easter symbolises rebirth, so what better day to plant some tulips or daffodils with your budding gardener?

Decorate a tree (indoors or outside, depending on the weather) with plastic Easter eggs and any other spring decor (such as pastel ribbons or tissue paper flowers) for your holiday guests to admire.
