Theme Ideas – Easter

Friday 17th February 2017

Get Active: Bunny Relay

Get the children into teams and mark out a start line. Place a cone or marker approx. 3m away. The bunny relay will require them to jump with both feet (like a bunny) from the start line around the cone and back again, before the next team member goes. This should be repeated by all team members until every team member has had a go.

Get Creative: Easter Sun catcher


  • Tissue paper (range of different colours)
  • Black or coloured card
  • Sticky back plastic
  • Scissors
  • Colouring Pens


Cut out template shapes from black or coloured card, this could be an egg, cross or other suitable shape. Cut tissue paper into squares or strips ready for the children to stick on. Cut out sticky back plastic to shape of template.


Give each child a card template and place it on sticky back plastic and children decorate using tissue paper. Once decoration is complete place sticky back plastic on reverse of sun catcher. To make the sun catcher look good from both sides you will need a second piece of card to go over the tissue paper before putting the sticky back plastic on the reverse of the sun catcher.

Get Active: Egg in the Basket


  • Large picture of Easter Bunny with basket
  • Coloured Card
  • Scissors
  • Pins/sticky dots


Create or printout a large (A3 or larger if possible) sheet with an Easter bunny with a basket. You can find lots of pics by searching for ‘Easter Bunny’ on Google. Cut out some egg shapes from different coloured card.


Put the large sheet up on the wall, and mark out a start line. Now blindfold the players in turn and give each an egg. Each egg is to be placed on to the sheet using pins or sticky dots, attempting to place the egg in the basket. The player who is closest to the basket wins and you could give them a prize.

Get Active: Chocolate Egg & Spoon Race

A great simple race with a slight twist on the traditional egg and spoon race, using chocolate eggs rather than hard-boiled eggs. The idea of the race is to keep the egg on the spoon, if the egg drops off the spoon you can ask them to go back to the start and try again. Mark out your start and finish lines and you’re ready to go. You could make this a bit more interesting by turning it into a relay race, a three-legged race, or even an obstacle course.
