How to keep little ones busy this Easter
With children around the country set to break up for the Easter holidays, parents everywhere are preparing to have their children at home and wonder how to keep little ones busy this Easter. Full of Easter eggs and sugary treats, the energy they would have burnt off at school is now being used to run up and down the living room.
So with that in mind, we have created a handy guide to surviving the Easter holidays. With everything from Easter egg hunts, day trips out and even DIY arts and crafts, Yumi has you covered.
The best things in life are free. Christmas feels like it was only few weeks ago and with the summer holidays fast approaching, money can be tight. As a result, we’ve created 3 free bunny masks for your little ones to colour in and enjoy. The masks are perfect for keeping children entertained for a few hours and therefore allow you to run a bat or tidy the house. All there is to do is click the link below, print them off and then let little creatives do the rest. Share the finished product with #LoveYumi.
Moomin adventures at Kew Gardens
Another way to entertain little ones is with everyone’s favourite Scandinavian characters . Moomin have come out of hibernation in time for spring and therefore are making their way to Kew Gardens. Created for children to value and understand nature, the event is filled with interactive trails, activity workshops and play areas. Running from 1st-17th April, this is one event they won’t want to miss.
Create your own cinema
Looking for something indoors? Then try this:
It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. April showers are the vein of every parent throughout half term. With the weather constantly changing and little ones becoming easily bored when stuck indoors, why not create an at home cinema to provide hours of entertainment? And more importantly, give you some peace and quiet. Decorate the living room with cosy blankets and cushions, chips and dip for snacking and their favourite films for a relaxed afternoon while you wish for sunshine.
Have a painting egg-stravaganza
Bright colours and bold patterns. No, we aren’t talking about our new Spring/Summer collection (which by the way, is beautiful), instead we’re talking about our love of hand painted eggs. A great for little hands stuck in and occupied, the Easter-themed DIY is cheap and cheerful. Remember to simply grab some eggs out of the fridge, boil them and then leave to cool. All that’s lefty is to decorate them with glitter, bright paints and fun prints for a unique spin on an Easter classic.
