A Guide to Fun-Filled Easter Activities for Kids
French Nanny London x Eeny Meeny

Easter break is just around the corner. While we love the season, with the weather getting warmer and a long bank holiday weekend to spend quality time with the kids, we also know that as busy parents, it can be a challenge juggling work, family life, and planning activities for the few weeks the kids are out of school.

We've partnered with French Nanny London to bring you a list of engaging activities and must-have toys that will keep your children entertained and inspired throughout the holidays. As parents ourselves, we've focused on what we would give to our own kids. Everything has been extensively tested, played with on repeat, and approved by our own children!

At Eeny Meeny, we believe in the power of play to nurture creativity, encourage learning, and create lasting memories. That's why we've curated a collection of eco-friendly toys and games from trusted brands that share our values. Whether you're staying at home, inviting friends over, or travelling, our carefully selected toys will ensure your kids have a fun-filled Easter break while developing their creativity, curiosity, and love for learning.

Travelling with Kids Made Easy

For those travelling this Easter Break, we understand the importance of making travel with kids as stress-free as possible. That's why we've put together a collection of toys and games that are easy to pack, keep your children engaged and happy, and are versatile enough to be played with repeatedly. We've made sure that everything is easy to clean and fits comfortably in your bag, so you can focus on enjoying your holiday together.

Outdoor Fun with The Den Kit Company

As the weather warms up, it's the perfect time to encourage your kids to spend time outdoors. The Den Kit Company offers a range of outdoor toys for children aged 4 and up, designed to inspire imaginative play and adventure. From building dens to exploring nature, these activity kits promote physical activity, boost creativity, and foster a love for the environment.

Building Skills with Connetix Tiles

Let's face it, with the unpredictable British weather, it's always good to have an indoor activity up your sleeve. Connetix tiles are a favourite among parents and kids alike, and for good reason. These magnetic building tiles help develop fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and problem-solving abilities, all while providing hours of engaging play. Encourage your child to build solo or collaborate with friends to create impressive structures. With Connetix tiles, your kids will be learning while having fun, rain or shine.

Family Fun with Londji Board Games

If you are planning some time off with the kids, get ready for some serious family fun with Londji's delightful range of board games and puzzles. With options for every age and interest, these games are perfect for bringing the whole family together. Not only will you be enjoying quality time with your loved ones, but your kids will also be developing important skills like critical thinking, communication, and social interaction. Plus, Londji's commitment to sustainability means you can feel good about your choice. Start a new family tradition this Easter break with Londji games. All their games are designed and made in Spain - one more reason to love them.

Get Creative with Cotton Twist and OMY

Looking for a way to spark your child's creativity this Easter break? Look no further than Cotton Twist's educational craft kits and OMY's colouring pens and posters. These engaging toys and activities provide endless opportunities for your kids to express themselves and let their imaginations run wild.

Nurturing Creativity and Development Through Play

Creative play is essential for children's cognitive, emotional, and social development. Engaging in imaginative activities allows them to explore their interests, experiment with new ideas, and express themselves freely - while staying away from screens. Opting for toys made from natural materials such as wood, fabric, or recycled materials not only reduces environmental impact but also offers children a tactile and sensory experience that enhances their learning.

Springtime offers the perfect opportunity to play outdoors and explore the wonders of nature. Outdoor activities provide children with physical exercise, stimulate their senses, spark their curiosity, and foster a deeper connection with the natural world. Some ideas for outdoor adventures include nature scavenger hunts, planting a garden, outdoor art projects, picnics, and fort building.

The Role of Nannies in Supporting Busy Parents

For busy parents juggling work commitments and family life during the Easter break, hiring a nanny can be a valuable solution. Nannies provide personalised childcare services tailored to the needs and schedules of each family, offering support with organising activities, taking children to birthday parties or holiday camps, and managing busy schedules. French Nanny London offers flexible childcare solutions that can be customised to meet the unique needs of your family during the Easter break, and all year long, ensuring peace of mind and allowing parents to fully enjoy quality time with their children.

Happy half-term break!
