Exeter Nursery EASTER challenges

*Hide the Easter bunny/chick – choose a favourite toy (small teddy or figurine works best) and hide it. Then ask someone in your family to find it. Give them clues by saying if they are ‘hot’ when they get close or ‘cold’ if they are far away from the object.

Chocolate Easter nest cakes! Cooking with children offers lots of opportunities for reading recipes and ingredients, weighing and measuring, mixing and following instructions as well as observing how the ingredients change when mixed.

Easter Chicks

Use a paper tube, paper plate or cardboard chick cut out and decorate with lots of glue, yellow feathers or tissue paper and googly eyes.
