As the title suggests, I’ve been on the hunt for ways to keep us learning and on a bit of a routine with learning while we are meant to be on the Easter holidays. So, here are a pile of resources I’ve found, some will keep both girls happy (B, nearly 3, and H, 5).
FREE Easter activities for Reception/KS1 kids in Covid-19 lockdown
Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt, right? Either taking part or a way to keep the kids busy, learning, exploring while you make lunch, have a cuppa tea, clean, tidy, do work calls…
We made our own scavenger hunts a few weeks ago, but this week we have LOVED Mrs Mactivity’s FREE Easter Scavenger hunts! Perfect for this weird time when we are all home making the best of things.
Download the FREE Mrs Mactivity Easter scavenger hunts here.
We have been gifted a Mrs Mactivity membership so we can share with you what we are enjoying – Mrs Mactivity costs £19/year, and does have some fantastic resources which we love, from banners and times table wheels, games to fun phonic worksheets.
You can get a free booklet to try out Mrs Mactivity without paying first.
Mrs Mactivity also has numerous topics including Easter resources and we’ve used quite a few of them this week… we have made their Pop up Easter cards, normal colour in Easter cards and have also printed their Easter baskets to make tomorrow. There are loads of fun Easter things to do though…
- Pop-up Easter cards
- Easter cards
- Easter maths booklet
- Easter phonics booklet
Activity Village has several FREE activity packs.
The FREE Easter Activity pack looks like it is filled with fun things to do – Easter masks, colouring, puzzles, tracing…
