10 Fun Activities you can do at home over the Easter Bank Holiday

Even though the weather is looking favourable, please don’t be tempted to travel - stay at home to help keep others safe. Remember you can still go out for your daily exercise but remember to keep it local and avoid interaction with other people. We’ve been in lockdown for a few weeks now so you’re probably starting to run out of activity ideas. There are loads of ideas online, as well as useful videos. Here’s some suggestions for things you could try this Bank Holiday weekend:

1. Board Games

    Take a break from your games consoles and try a good old‐fashioned board game! It will give you a chance to spend some quality time with your family and can be really fun, especially if you’ve got a competitive streak!

    2. Try some baking

      Baking is another great way to spend time with each other. It can also be a stress relief for some people and a great opportunity to be creative. Plus – who doesn’t love cake!?

      3. Do an Easter Egg Hunt at home

        Many families would usually head out to enjoy the many Easter Egg Hunts that are on offer, so why not create one at home. There will be loads of great hiding places in your house and if you have a garden, why not venture out there too.

        4. Visit Wolds Wildlife Park virtually

          Get up close to the animals at Wolds Wildlife Park on their Facebook page. They are posting regular updates about what the animals are up to, plus some great videos showing their cheeky behaviours.

          5. Set up camp in your garden

            Dig out your tent and spend the night under the stars. If you don’t have a tent you can always make your own out of bedsheets in your living room. It’s just as fun and a great chance for your kids to use their imagination.

            6. Have a Kick-Up competition

              Challenge your family to see how many kick-ups they can do. Make sure you keep score and whoever wins gets a prize! It’s load of fun and you’ll also improve your hand‐eye coordination!

              7. Play Catch

                It’s simple but can be lots of fun! Get the whole family involved and create challenges for each other. How many times can you pass the ball in 30 seconds? How long can you last without dropping it?

                8. Make a Scrapbook

                Scrapbooks are a fun and creative way to display your memories or favourite things to do. If you have visited the Wolds recently, dig out your photos and get sticking! Where did you go? What was your favourite thing to do? You can also create an online scrapbook if you do not have a printer.

                9. Plan your next visit to the Wolds
