Easter Crafts for kids when they are bored

Keeping Them Busy This Easter

It is week two of the Easter School Holidays in South Africa. We are starting to get a bit bored. My purse is a bit empty. So I’ve pulled together a few links to activities to do with the kids to keep them busy. They won’t break the bank either.  

How To Keep Kids Busy Over Easter

Nickelodeon have a great pack of Easter colouring and activity pages, FREE to download and print. Most of the pages they can do on their own. Nickelodeon Easter Activity Pack 

Little Paper Swans has a DIY – Make Your Own Giant Kinder Egg. I haven’t tried this yet but it’s a great idea. You can get the kids to make their own, or to make one as a gift for a friend.

Get ‘baking’ with these Avalanche Rice Crispy Eggs, recipe by Winettes Parenting and Baking blog.

Movies!! Smurfs: The Lost Village is out in theatres at the time of writing this post. Whatever the latest movie is, I usually go check their website to see what activities they have for kids. There is a usually a huge range of activities to choose from on their website. Since it’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and late summer in the Southern Hemisphere, these Smurf inspired Frozen Yoghurt Popsicles look like a great idea!
