Easter fun for kids

Easter is hopping in soon, so start grabbing your paint, crayons, brushes and eggs for decorating this coming Easter Day.

Thinking of what’s there to do, where to take your kids or maybe it’s your first time celebrating Easter day? Don’t worry, here’s a list of events you can go for.

Let your child’s creativity shine through the Art Boot Camp: It’s Easter Day! event. They can create their very own Easter eggs made of paper Mache and beautiful paintings on a canvas. A workshop that’s sure to paint colours to you and your kids’ weekend, if they’re happy, you’re happy too right? (Suitable for ages 5 – 14) (2 - 3 Apr)

Does your little one love doodling on walls and scribbling on pieces of paper that they can get their little hands on? Bring them down to the Art Boot Camp: It’s Easter Fun! for the younger children. Instead of creating a paper Mache, the younger ones will decorate a colourful basket to put their favourite toys or items in. What’s more, there will also be a canvas for them to show you their beautiful strokes of paint. (Suitable for ages 3 – 4) (2 - 3 Apr)

Want to be part of the Singapore Book of Records? Then take part in NTUC Club’s attempt to paint the way into the Singapore Book of Records for the most number of people painting Easter eggs concurrently. Last year, they broke the record with 375 people, this year, they’re looking for more. No need for registration fee, just go on down for a fun filled day and receive goodie bags. Prizes are also awarded to best painted egg and best decorated ones. Don’t miss it! (6 Apr)

Nothing like bunny movies for Easter

Love the feeling of watching outdoor movies with your family over a simple picnic? Grab a picnic mat, some food and head on down to Downtown East for the free movie screening of “Hop”. The light-hearted and meaningful movie is sure to be a hit with families and kids. (6 Apr)

Nothing comes close to the classic egg hunt on an Easter Day. Take part in the DE Easter Children Egg Hunt where your kids can run wild, hunting for colourful Easter eggs. Not to mention, $84,000 worth of prizes can be won and every participant will walk away with souvenirs too. Register now! (7 Apr)

If you’re looking for a more adventurous and challenging activity, the Easter Weekend @ Forest Adventure is a good place to start. Embarking on this adventure presents a whole weekend of activities ranging from egg painting, egg hunts and even a cuddly giant bunny for the kids to mingle with. (6 – 8 Apr)

Buffet goers, this one is for you: Easter Sunday Buffet Brunch. Start whipping out your loose outfits (you wouldn’t want to unbuckle your belt in public right?) and eat up! If you’re worried that your children cannot eat much and will get bored, don’t fret. Egg decorating, face painting and goodie bags will be available for the little ones. So just bring children and yourselves down for this delicious spread. (8 Apr)
