The Easter break is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some quality time with the kids – and if that means getting active together, then everyone’s a winner!

Below, our members share their ideas for a hoppy Easter, including some tasty treats and ideas to get the whole family moving…

Egg hunt with a twist!

watermelon and fruit pizza

The classic chocolate egg hunt is great fun for kids, but you could turn the tables and ask them to create clues for a treasure trail for you! Slimming World member Heather came home from shopping to find a slimming-friendly scavenger hunt all set up, leading to a colourful fruit salad ‘pizza’ in the fridge.

Make (or bake!) their day

Making slimming-friendly treats is a fun way to spend time with little ones, while keeping your weight loss plans on track. You’ll find lots of ideas for things to make and bake with the kids – including chocolate apple lollipops and banoffee custard pots – in our Cooking with the Kids blog post.

Take a woodland walk

Exploring local woodland can feel like an adventure – especially if you turn it into a challenge with a list of items to look out for along the way (a bird, a smooth rock, a pine cone, etc). You’ll find printable illustrated lists online that are perfect for younger children to check off.

Top tip: If you struggle to get your tribe out for a walk, cycling or scooting also work just as well!

Go on a bear hunt 

Add extra excitement to a family ramble by turning it into a quest to find a cuddly toy (keep the teddy out of sight in a backpack until you can plant it in its hiding place)! We love Loren’s home-made map and set of binoculars, which could be a brilliant craft activity for the kids.

Pack up a picnic

It’s hard to beat an al fresco lunch if the sun is shining – and you don’t have to go far. Picnicking in your own back garden can feel like a treat. Or, if the sun doesn’t want to come out to play, an indoor tea party should go down well (especially if their favourite dolls and teddies are invited too!). Of course, you can join in with all the foodie fun with your family – Slimming World members have access to more than 2,000 recipes online, including a packed-to-the-brim basketful of slimming-friendly picnic foods and puds.

Dig for victory

India has been busy helping to get a community garden ready for spring. If your gardening activity increases your heart rate and makes you feel slightly out of breath, it counts towards Body Magic – and children usually enjoy getting stuck in, too!
