Kids Easter Activity Blog

April 2022

Now that the long-awaited Easter holidays are finally upon us, it’s time again to try your very best to keep the junior members of your household entertained! Your offspring might be too attached to their iPads and video games to realise that the weather is getting warmer and days are growing longer. Why not try shutting down their screens and banish the boredom once and for all with some fun new toys? Outdoor-loving kids will love the milder temperatures we’ve been basking in lately, so there’s lots of items in this edit from @josiesmithmedia that can be enjoyed in your back garden or the local park. Time outside is invaluable to your kids’ growth and learning: It encourages them to take in their surroundings and nature as a whole. It’s a wonderful part of childhood. Outdoor toys for children are also an amazing way to support your kiddos neurological development too, and from bouncing and brainstorming to scooting and shouting – @theforgeshoppingcentre has lots of seasonal products in store now, to help distract and delight your little ones over the next few weeks!
