As the weather brightens and the days get longer, it certainly feels like nothing could dampen your spirit and then BAM the Easter holidays hit us. It can be daunting having little ones running circles around you for the half term although every moment is cherished. We at Printster have come up with a few half term boredom kickers to help ease the pressure on you and your bank account.  So get your chicks in a row and take note!


First we are starting with a classic, The Easter Nest!

The things you will need:

  • 100g milk chocolate
  • 50g butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g cornflakes
  • Mini sugar coated Easter eggs e.g. Mini Eggs

Step by Step:

  • Break up the chocolate into squares and place in a microwave-proof mixing bowl with the syrup and butter. Heat in the microwave on 30 second bursts until melted, then stir until smooth. Alternatively, place in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water until everything is melted and smooth. Be cautious when doing this!
  • Add the cornflakes and stir with a spoon until they are well coated in chocolate.
  • Place 12 paper cupcake cases in a bun tin and spoon the mixture into the cases. Place in the fridge to set for 30 mins. Decorate with sugar eggs.

To make things even more Easter festive, we would recommend some bright coloured cases and for a display adding little chicks as the toppers.


For the more crafty kid (not in the behavioural sense) we have the Easter Bonnet!

The Easter bonnet is a traditional childhood activity and I think we can all remember the parades at school! We have a few ideas which can be as simple or messy as you like.

  1. You can often find Easter Bonnet kits in various places leading up to the Easter weekend with everything you need included. This would be a easier option for those with not much time but a gap to fill with the kids. Often made from paper this does mean other craft items you have at home can be added for the personalised touch.
  2. A lot more personal way is to buy some craft items from your local craft store and using an old hat that is no longer needed, or buying a cheap alternative. Making the bonnet this way means you get 2 activities out of 1, with the kids choosing their own items in the store then going home to create their masterpieces.


The magical Easter treat!

Sometimes it does feel like Easter is all about chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate but we don’t want to miss out on the traditions. We have a new take on the classic Easter Egg hunt, we call it the Bunny Bean Garden! All you need for this is some Jelly Beans and Easter Eggs!

Step 1: Choose an area you would like to grow the garden, a space in the garden or if in a flat/apartment consider plant pots or a large box you can makeshift a garden out of.

Step 2: Your children will then plant their magic bunny beans.

Step 3: Don’t forget where they have been planted, no body wants an early morning search for some jelly beans!

Step 4: Replace the Jelly Beans with your chosen Easter treat.

Step 5: Have you child find the Bunny Bean Garden and enjoy their Easter treats!
