Easter at Treacys Hotel
With Easter only around the corner, we can already hear the sugar-filled kids running around, loving mid-term break. Little legs seems to carry a lot of energy and if, like me, you’re constantly in search of new and simple ways to keep them entertained, read on.
With the helpful hands of Mini T’s Kids Club staff, I’ve picked my top 3 fun and interesting activities to keep those little bunnies entertained this Easter.
1) Yummy Treats
Eggciting Crispy Cakes-A childhood favourite, Rice Krispy Cakes, has been transformed.
What you need to do: Buy coloured marshmallows (about 20 medium-sized), melt in the microwave for 30-40 seconds, add two tablespoons of melted butter and 2 cups of Rice Krispy cereal. Mix together until smooth and thinly spread on grease-proof paper. Once cooled, cut mixture using an egg-shaped cutter. Finally, the kids will love decorating this delicious Easter treats. Some of my favourite toppings are melted chocolate, coloured icing and sprinkles.
2) Easter Garland
A simple but fun activity.
What you need to do: Using a variety of coloured paper, draw egg shapes and cut out with a scissors. If you feel you don’t have a steady hand, use the egg-cutter to outline your paper! Next, let the kids get creative in decorating their eggs. Great decorating ideas include coloured stickers, glitter, paint and markers. Once all the eggs are finished, use a hole punch to add two holes to the top of each egg. Now place any thread or string through each hole and Voila! You now have a beautiful and colourful Easter Garland.
3) Easter Basket
Popular with younger kids, these super easy and quick baskets will be a firm favourite.
What you need to do: Using plain, white containers fold into rectangle shapes. Sides can be glued or sellotaped together if needed. Draw or print some Easter/ Spring pictures such as cut out flowers, bunnies or chicks and get the kids to decorate each piece. Once finished, stick to all sides of the container. Lastly, cut a thin strip of thick paper and glue one end to each side of the container. To make your new basket even better why not cut some green crepe paper into thin stripes and use as grass? The kids will have hours of fun carrying their Easter eggs and trinkets in this super easy basket.
