4. Handprint spring flowers

You will need:

Select any of the 12 colours in our Arty Crayon pack - Draw the crayon onto a piece of paper making a solid filled circle. Use a paintbrush to add water to the crayon to make it into a watercolour.

Paint your full palm with the paintbrush & watercolour. Press firmly onto a piece of paper to create your handprint flower.

Repeat as many times as you like. Once finished printing your flowers, draw a green stem from underneath and design your bow. 

Allow your child to be as creative as they wish with design to encourage mark-making and explore with hand coordination when printing. 

Easter Games Inspo: Because who doesn't love an Easter game?!

Reading & Writing themed Egg Hunt!

What's Easter without a traditional egg hunt? You could do your normal easter egg hunt around the garden and have tons of fun, but you could also make it Educational - here's how:

  • Give each child a clipboard and have them tally off all the eggs they have found - encouraging counting mental maths and also writing numbers or tally’s down as well as practicing pencil grip and control is a great way to get the kiddies involved
  • Give out clues and make it into a scavenger hunt where they can read the next clue as they go along! Reading skills are just as important as writing skills - Or, if you have slightly older children, ask one child to write the clues for the other child to find. Great fun for the whole family!

Egg and spoon race

Gather family and friends for a traditional and super fun Egg and spoon race! First, mark up a short distance for the track. You will also need some eggs, spoons and blindfolds. Blindfolded, with an egg balanced on your spoon, the first to the end of the race track and back, wins! 

Pin the tail on the Easter bunny

All you need is a A3 size paper, a pencil, a pompom and a blindfold. Grab your tripod grip writing pencils and draw out a big bunny but with no tail. Draw out a tail separately and cut out with scissors - ask your child to help cut out to practice their fine motor skills.

Each person has a turn to pin the tail as close to where it is on the Easter bunny blindfolded, the closest wins! 

Easter egg puzzles: Practising Upper and Lowercase Letters

Trace different egg shapes onto some paper or card and get your child practicing their fine motor skills to cut the eggs out and then cut the eggs in half. On one half write an uppercase letter and on the other, the corresponding lowercase letter. Use Love Writing Co. Washable Arty Crayons to decorate afterwards to give a bit of extra art fun - get your craft essential crayons here. 

The aim of the game is to match up each matching letter so it has an upper and lowercase letter to complete the egg. This is a fun and simple way to practise the alphabet and recognising letter formation.
