After we released our Easter Themed Activity Pack, we were inundated with requests for an Early Years version. So here it is! This pack contains many activities from the original, activities which have been adapted and a whole lot of new ones designed specifically for younger children (3-6 years). As with all our themed activity packs, this collection is cross-curricular and packed full of hands-on fun.
We suggest the Easter bunny delivers the pack to children a little ahead of Easter – giving them plenty of time for a bright, springy build up to the long Easter weekend. If you want to do an Easter/spring topic spread over a few weeks, this pack would be perfect! The pack is an ideal alternative to a chocolate gift and will certainly keep children busy throughout the Easter holidays.
Many of the activities in this pack are intended to be done with an adult or as a family. They were not planned to be independent tasks for younger children, but they are brilliant fun to enjoy together. You will likely find the science, crafts, baking and STEM challenges to be of this nature. However we have also added lots of other activities that could be done independently, depending on your child.
Amongst other things children can host a pancake party, design their ultimate Easter egg and help the Easter Bunny fill the baskets full of eggs. They can get busy in the kitchen with a range of tempting treats, create an Easter puzzle, save the day in several Lego challenges and create their own eggciting treasure hunt.
There’s plenty of colouring pages, bouncy egg science, a super speckled egg craft, fabulous fizzing bath eggs and a signs of spring hunt. Plus, opportunities to tell stories, create a comic strip and make an Easter bingo game.
Easter wouldn’t be complete without designing and making a bonnet, constructing a pop-up card, carefully crafting paper flowers and starting off some seeds. We’ve also included a load of cool eggsperiments with the chance for children to draw what they see and discuss ‘why’ with an adult.
We always say that ability is very subjective; what will be right for one child of a particular age won’t necessarily be right for another of the same age. As a general guide we suggest this pack suitable for children aged 3-6 with adult support as is appropriate. It may well be suitable for younger or older children depending on the child. The tasks can be completed to your child’s own level and can be easily adapted.
It is important to remember that our activity packs are not meant to mirror what a child has been doing at nursery or school, but are instead meant to engage them, spark their love of learning and most of all be FUN. Our own children (aged 2-8) have loved testing out the activities in this pack.
Some of our activities require resources that you may not have readily at home but can be purchased inexpensively online or at the supermarket. Some tasks involve the use of things like scissors, chemicals and knives; children will need appropriate supervision for these.
If you purchase the digital file (70 pages) please be aware that not all pages require printing. Our packs are bright and vibrant to make them appealing to children and as such it may not be economical to print them in their entirety. Many pages are suitable to be read on a device without the need for printing. Please be mindful of this.
Our hard copies come in stunning full colour print with a complimentary PDF version so you can print extra pages as you wish. The print quality is far superior to a home printer and they are professionally bound with thick covers. 2nd class postage and packaging within the UK is also included in the purchase price. If you would like faster postage please contact us for a custom invoice.
HARD COPIES WILL BEGIN ARRIVING WITH CUSTOMERS FROM 15TH MARCH – THIS IS AN EARLY ORDER. PDFS ARE DELIVERED VIA EMAIL WITHIN 24 HOURS.
