As we welcome in the spring, what better way to celebrate than with eggs and chocolate, whilst still achieving your children’s learning goals. We have fun activities for children aged 4-16, on a variety of topics, and they can be created at home with parents, grandparents and carers of children, along with being curriculum-linked to save teachers valuable time, so do please share these with your local school.

For KS1 (age 4-6) and KS2 (7-11) there’s a graphics project to design a pop-up Easter card. Or you can let their creativity flow as you use papier mâché and a balloon to make an Easter egg to decorate or help link words or numbers on cracked eggshells.

In the name of science, your 11-14 year-olds (KS3) and KS4 teens (14-16) can understand the use of levers and construct a simple catapult to fire chocolate! Design and build a structure to protect an egg as it falls from a great height or, for those who like to live in the fast lane, develop an egg transporter to race.
