Fun Easter holiday activities
Easter egg hunt
An Easter egg hunt is a fun family activity to get your kids excited about Easter. Planting Easter eggs around your garden or home can keep your children entertained for hours. Many businesses also host community Easter egg hunts for everyone to partake in.
We offer cashback on Tesco Groceries, if you want to treat your kids with the traditional Cadbury eggs. You may also have children with food allergies like dairy or gluten. If this is the case, or you simply want a healthier option for your kids, we offer up to 11% cashback for purchases with Holland & Barrett. You can also receive cashback deals with Hotel Chocolat, where, along with Holland & Barrett, you can find vegan chocolate Easter eggs.
Walk a nature trail
There are many scenic walking routes and trails dotted around, and we’re sure you’ll find one local to you.
From walks through the woods, to scenic tree-lined paths, walking is a great family activity. Why not take your dog too? We’ve got you sorted with our cashback deals on outdoor walking equipment and clothing from Cotswold Outdoor, where you can find 3.2% cashback for all purchases.
Camping is an activity all family members can enjoy, including pets. What could be better than escaping from busy life and roasting marshmallows on a campfire, or immersing yourself in nature?
Whether you enjoy the great outdoors, or prefer caravan camping, you can earn money while spending time outdoors with your family. With GoOutdoors, you can earn up to 8.8% cashback on tents and camping equipment, to truly live the outdoor life in style.
Do some Easter baking
Baking is a calming activity that your children will enjoy as much as the end product they get to eat, and there are countless possibilities of what to bake.
If you want to aptly stick with the Easter theme, why not try Easter nests, cupcakes or rocky road? These are low-effort and low-commitment options that are easy to involve the kids in.
When writing your Easter baking ingredients list, remember that we offer varying cashback rates on Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Ocado purchases.
Do some crafts
Crafts are enjoyed by all ages. Indulging in art & crafts with your kids can help them expand their imaginations and keep them entertained at the same time. From making mood boards and collages, to colouring and folding, crafts are endless fun that can entertain adults too.
What’s more, at Quidco, you can find cashback deals on Craftiosity purchases, as well as up to 10% cashback with TheWorks, where you can find numerous arts & crafts items.
Have a Spring clean
It’s now officially Springtime, which is as good a time as any to have a large cleaning session. You can involve your kids in lower-effort cleaning activities, which can have great mental and cognitive benefits for younger children and toddlers too.
If you want a full Springtime house reset, why not try painting too? With our B&Q and Wilko cashback deals, you’ll be spoilt for choice on the cleaning and painting supplies available to you.
Play some games
Although it’s now Spring, the weather is pretty unpredictable during this time of year. Therefore, why not stay indoors with your kids and play some games?
Earn cashback as you play, with cashback deals available from top retailers like TheWorks, Waterstones and GAME. Simply click through to the site and begin shopping as normal, and your cashback will be on its way to you quicker than you can roll a six on a dice.
Have a picnic
With the hopes that warmer and less wet Spring weather is on its way, the idea of a picnic sounds all the more appealing. The low-effort nature of a picnic is also why it’s a great idea, and a great way to spend some family time together. What’s more, you can always bring the picnic indoors if the weather throws a spanner in the works for your planned picnic in the park.
If you want to keep it simple, find cashback deals on purchases with numerous supermarkets that us at Quidco are proud to work with. Alternatively, for a more luxury picnic experience, find cashback deals with Hampers.com or Virginia Hayward Hampers.
Go away for the weekend
Take advantage of the multiple bank holidays the April Easter holidays offer by going away for the weekend. You may find that a relaxing break is much needed, and what’s more, you can earn cashback while relaxing in a hot tub or walking along a beach. Cashback for luxury hotels like Hotel Du Vin is available at 4.8%, while you can find cashback rates of up to 4% with SpaBreaks.com.
Have a movie day
If you’re wondering what to do on Easter bank holiday while everything is shut, why not keep it simple and stay indoors with a good film? If the film is slightly too young for you or isn’t particularly your sort of thing, it’s a great way to keep your kids entertained while you get on with any tasks you may need to do.
You can even earn cashback on your favourite film picks through Disney+, with whom you can earn £10 cashback. If you still own a DVD player, places like HMV and WHSmith are sure to have all your favourite films stocked, along with the latest cashback offers and discounts.
