Are you all excited about Easter this year? Easter Sunday is on April 4, 2021, so now is the time to think about what you want to do that day - and to plan some great and easy kids' activities!
The Happiness Hub team at Camp Quality has picked out some of their all-time favourite activities for you to do with the whole family this Easter.
1. kid-friendly Easter Bunny banana pancakes
For the Camp Quality team there is no better way to start Easter Sunday than with some yummy banana pancakes in the shape of a bunny - from our delicious kids' recipes! That is why we are putting these tasty banana bunny pancakes first. If you don’t feel comfortable in the kitchen by yourself, ask Mum, Dad, or an older brother or sister for some help.
Two very ripe large bananas
Three large eggs
3/4 cup self-raising flour
Extra banana slices for feet
Mini chocolate chips for feet pads
Shredded coconut for tail
Whipped cream to garnish
(Tip: you can get all of these ingredients from your local ALDI.)
Mash the bananas
Whisk the eggs, and add the mashed banana and flour. Mix until it’s all combined
Lightly grease a non-stick pan and heat on medium for 1 minute
For the bunny body, using a large spoon, add 1/4 cup batter to the pan. Add two tablespoons batter for the head, one tablespoon batter for each of the feet, and one tablespoon batter for each of the ears in long thin strips
After 1 to 2 minutes, flip the pancakes. Do this once the edges are set, and the base is golden brown
Put the bunny body in the middle of a plate, positioning the head, ears and feet just overlapping to look like the back of a bunny (see image above).
Add whipped cream and shredded coconut for the tail, banana slices for the feet and mini chocolate chips for the feet pads
Enjoy your bunny pancakes from our kids' recipes!
2. PAPER BUNNY EARS
Before heading out for the Easter egg hunt, you might want to get a bit crafty, so why not design your own bunny ears? Here's how to become an Easter bunny for the day.
What you'll need:
Construction paper in colours white and pink, but you can use any colour you like - be creative!
Cut out bunny-ear shapes, two white and two pink, the white ones being smaller
Glue the white ears onto the pink ears
Glue the ears onto a long strip of construction paper
Measure to fit your head
Staple the ends together to form a headband
And now you are all set for your Easter egg hunt, little bunny. Have fun!
3. EGG-AND-SPOON RACE
Once you have finished the Easter egg hunt with family and friends you might want to explore another outdoor activity, like an egg-and-spoon race.
Each of you only needs an egg and a spoon for this super-fun race.
The goal of this game is to balance an egg upon a spoon and race with it to the finishing line. You might want to hard boil the eggs before the race - but if you or your parents don't mind a mess you can use raw eggs (as long as you race outdoors). 😊
Once you and your friends have decided on the race track, you can get started right away. Happy racing!
