5 Creative Ways to Engage Your Children with Easter-Themed Outdoor Play

As Easter approaches, it’s the perfect time to infuse your children’s outdoor play with the joy and excitement of the season. From egg hunts to nature walks, there are endless opportunities to engage kids in active, imaginative, and Easter-themed activities. 

We’ve picked five ways to make the most of outdoor play with an Easter twist:

Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt:

Transform your garden or local park into a treasure trove of hidden Easter eggs. Fill plastic eggs with small treats, stickers, or even clues leading to a grand prize. Encourage your children to explore the outdoor space, using their problem-solving skills to uncover each hidden gem. This activity promotes teamwork, critical thinking, and, most importantly, lots of fun! Every year the National Trust holds their own easter egg hunts. With the beautiful scenery and multitude of locations across the country, it is a brilliant place to consider this Easter break. To learn more please click here.

Easter-themed Obstacle Course:

Design an obstacle course inspired by Easter themes such as hopping like a bunny, balancing eggs on spoons, or navigating through a maze of spring flowers. Set up stations with different challenges and let your children race against the clock or compete against each other. Not only does this activity keep kids active and engaged, but it also helps develop their motor skills and coordination. At Landscapes 4 Learning we create a number of different equipment which is perfect for obstacle courses, easter themed or not! To view some of these products visit our website!

Spring Nature Walk and Scavenger Hunt:

Take advantage of spring by embarking on a nature walk with your children. Equip them with baskets and lists of items to find, such as colourful flowers, chirping birds, or budding trees. Encourage them to observe and appreciate the beauty of nature while learning about the changes that come with the new season. 

DIY Easter Crafts in the Garden:

Set up a crafting station in your garden or outdoor space and let your children’s creativity blossom. Provide materials such as paint, markers, and construction paper for them to create Easter-themed masterpieces like egg decorations, bunny masks, or flower crowns. Crafting outdoors helps children connect with nature, express their creativity, and improve fine motor skills.
