Bring the family to a festive Easter bazaar
With Easter just around the corner, get the whole family into the festive spirit at a free Easter bazaar. The Waldorf Early Years centre will be filled with colourful decorations and presenting a spread of tasty themed treats. Browse the selection of handmade crafts or join in fun Easter activities from face painting and egg painting to Easter sack jumping and egg relays.
The bazaar will take place on 8 April from 10am to 1pm. Voucher bundles are available for food and activities. Plus RSVP by the 1st of April for 10 percent off $20 coupon bundles.
Have a blast at an Easter holiday camp
Kids can look forward to loads of fun activities in the Easter camps run by Whizz Kidz! Happening from March to April, these weekly camps have something for everyone. From science and robotics to arts, technology and even cooking, they’ll keep your little ones entertained and learning. This season, there are two new venues – DCA Dance School and Dover Court International School – on top of regular spots such as Huone and schools like Invictus, CIS, GESS and IFS. Each location will have a unique programme; for instance, DCA camps are offering tumbling and dance activities.
If you prefer to have a small group camp at home, gather some friends and opt for the home sessions. All materials will be provided and there’ll be an experienced instructor who will facilitate the sessions. Camp dates and activities can be customised according to the children’s preferences and interests. Venue camps go at $550 per week and home camps start from $400.
Have an Easter egg hunt
Send the kids running around the house by organising a fun Easter egg hunt right in your own home! Choose to get plastic eggs that you can fill with treats or go with regular hard-boiled ones. To spice things up a bit, instead of candy, try putting in some fun notes, tasks or even rewards. You can get some cool ideas at Play.Party.Plan.
Sure, it’s a bit of extra work, but the smiles on the kids’ faces are worth it!
Bake some Easter treats
Why not whip up some yummy Easter goodies with the kids? You’ll find loads of great recipes on websites such as BBC Good Food and taste.com.au – bunny biscuits or cupcakes, anyone? If not, YouTube is another great place to scout for cool recipes. We also have some fun recipes for you to check out!
Make some Easter crafts
You don’t need much to set up a fun crafts sesh for the kids. Gather items from around the house (recycled paper, bottles, toilet paper rolls – whatever you can get your hands on) plus some paints, markers, glue and scissors, and you’re good to go!
Not sure what to make? There are plenty of great sites where you can get fab ideas for Easter crafts. Many of them come with supply lists, step-by-step instructions and photos so you can follow along easily. You’ll also find loads of cute printables and colouring sheets that you can download for free. Here are a few to get you started:
Watch some movies
What better time to sit down as a family and enjoy a good show? Here are some suggestions:
- Based on the series by Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit is an animated film about mischievous rabbits Peter (voiced by James Corden) and his three sisters that make fun of their neighbour Mr McGregor and steal vegetables from his garden.
- Hop tells the story of a rabbit called E.B. (the Easter Bunny’s son), who runs away to Hollywood to become a drummer. He ends up being knocked down by a car, driven by Fred, who wants to become the first human Easter bunny.
- Who doesn’t love Zootopia? Join cute and optimistic officer Judy Hopps (yes, she’s a bunny) from the Zootopia Police Department as she tries to solve the mystery of missing mammals. The show isn’t just all laughs; it also explores relevant issues such as prejudice and morality.
- If sweet things are on the kids’ minds, they’ll love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Starring Johnny Depp as the eccentric Willy Wonka, the 2005 version of the story will have you drooling at the scenes of chocolates and laughing at the silly Oompa Loompas.
