Beach or movie with a blanket? Don't worry: we anticipate this and give you 4 ideas for activities in the sun and 4 ideas for activities in the rain for this Easter with children.

4 activities to do with children if it's sunny at Easter

pool goggles

  • Dream first day at the beach : Even if the temperature is cool, you can enjoy a great day at the beach. Prepare towels, sunscreen, a deck of cards, a delicious picnic full of fresh food (the more colors the better), a bucket and shovel to build castles, goggles and a diving mask in case you dare to take a dip, and get excited!
  • Balance and climbing games : The cool, long and bright days of these spring holidays lend themselves to experimenting in the garden or on the terrace with balance, climbing and agility. To do this, children can enjoy the help provided by the curved balance board , the convertible Piker triangle with ramp , the climbing cube or the balance beam.
  • Adventures on wheels by bicycle or skates : After the dark, short, cold and rainy days of winter, the light and pleasant temperatures are ideal for practicing physical activity outside, from excursions to the mountains to small hiking routes or your first first steps on the bike and skates. If they haven't learned yet, try the Twist skates - available in pink or blue -, the balance bikes for the little ones or our innovative scooters .
  • Nature and learning: You can take your analog or digital camera and go take photographs of nature, walk through a Nature Reserve in your area, download an app to identify mushrooms, plants or animals, collaborate with a sanctuary or shelter, take a route of smells, teach them to identify birds and trees, start a garden activity in the garden or explore the greenest corners of your city. And if you like Holy Week, it is always a good time to learn about the folklore and curiosities behind the processions.
