The Planner Girls Collective have chosen this week to put together their Easter bucket lists and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Here in Leeds, the kids have already been off school for a week as they broke up for their Easter holiday last Friday. This means I have already had a week of trying to break up arguments, maintain some semblance of a household routine and conjure up a never ending list of things for them to do when the inevitable should ‘Mum, I’m bored’ from wherever they are stationed.
I prepared this list so I could find things to do with the kids during half term and it hopefully won’t break the bank.
So here’s what I’m planning
I have planned a couple of Easter related crafts to do with the kids in case the weather turns out to be rubbish. We are planning on making some egg shaped sun catchers, a handprint chicks and some Easter cards and baskets for the grandparents. Watch this space to see how they turned out.
Decorate the house for Easter
I love adding seasonal decorations to the house, plus it stops me from getting fed up with my existing decor. This also means my OH doesn’t have to listen to me waffling on about mood boards and colour swatches. We have already picked up some bits and pieces so will be putting those up very soon.
I love baking and it seems my kids have caught the bug so we will definitely be making some Easter goodies. I’m thinking maybe some Rice Krispie nests and some cupcakes
Easter Bonnet Parade/Easter Egg Hunt
There are a few Easter events happening at the stately homes near where I live. Hopefully we will make it at least one of them to show of the Easter bonnets the kids have made.
Conduct some Easter science experiments
My little boy spent the last two weeks talking non stop about science week and the experiments he did at school. He asked if we can so some of our own experiments during the holidays so I promised him we could attempt some Easter experiments.
Paint my nails using a pastel nail polish
I’ve been neglecting my nails a little recently, I even had to resort to some stick on falsies last week. That being the case I’ve decided my hands/nails need a little TLC.
Don’t forget to check out what the other girls have on their bucket lists!
