Happy holidays, everyone!
You can’t just wander into the school holidays unarmed; you need to have your wits and resources around you. Especially on the first of April.
If you want to avoid being the victim of a practical joke, here are some seasonal quips to distract your little ones:
Q: What do you get when you cross a frog with a rabbit?
A: A bunny ribbit.
Q: Why does the bunny bring toilet paper to the party?
A: Because he is a party pooper.
Q: What would you get if you crossed a rabbit with a bumblebee?
Q: How do you catch the Easter Bunny?
A: Hide in the bushes and make a noise like a carrot.
A: A honey bunny.
Sorry, but if you can’t cope with awful jokes, your time as a parent may be troublesome!
Here are some craft ideas that are fun without being corny:
DIY Easter arts and crafts
DIY arts and crafts for the whole family
Fun DIY crafts using cardboard boxes
My kids are looking forward to the brief break. They claim to be “exhausted” after a busy first term, and hope to “do lots of nothing”. Their words. I’m sure we’ll do something that doesn’t involve personal injury or frantic calls from the bank manager, though.
There’s a certain little girl in the house who is going to see a certain boy band this week. It’s the fulfilment of a lifelong (well, yearlong) goal, and she’s going to be bouncing off the walls like a bunny on caffeine. I love seeing her excitement in anticipation of the event. We forget that life needn’t be predictable, and that there are new experiences to be had at every turn.
Even if you’re not going away for a mini break this holiday or you have nothing unusual planned, you can still find plenty to do with your little ones. Imagine you’re them, experiencing things for the very first time. Imagine seeing an interesting museum or a special place in nature that you’ve never been to before.
The internet is a great place to research- before you go out with them, find some interesting facts to share about what you’re going to do or see. It’ll make the experience that much richer.
I hope you all have a wonderful little holiday, if you’re travelling, be safe, and if you’re “doing lots of nothing” be safe too!
Keep it punny!
