Grandhome’s Ultimate Easter Holidays Activity Guide

Are you looking for things to do in the Easter holidays to keep children and adults entertained? Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire offer a wide range of activities for all ages. Whether it’s taking part in the Grandhome scavenger hunt or exploring the castles of the North-East, here at Grandhome, we have the ultimate guide to Easter holiday activities for all the family – rain or shine!

Egg decorating

Traditional but still just as fun! Show off your creative skills and design hard-boiled eggs to decorate your home just in time for Easter. Or even better, why not challenge your friends and family to an Easter egg roll. Take your decorated eggs and roll them down a grassy hill to see whose egg rolls the farthest with the least amount of cracks.

Not had enough Easter fun? Try colouring in your own Easter egg!

Bake at home

Easter is a great time to enjoy lots of sweet treats. From Three Ingredient Cadbury Mini Crème Egg Fudge to Hot Cross Bun French Toast, Claire Jessiman of Foodie Quine has devised some Easter sweet delights to keep everyone entertained. Why not try some mini raspberry and chocolate nests, and edible Easter bunnies? The Press & Journal has a range of fun Easter recipes for all the family too. Enlist the help of your family, gather in the kitchen, and create these tasty treats to enjoy after a full day of holiday activities.

Make sure you prepare enough leftovers to pack when you go on any day trips to keep fuelling the adventure.

Grandhome scavenger hunt 

From last year’s success, the Grandhome Easter scavenger hunt is back and is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. Once you have completed your adventure, make sure that you share a picture of your scavenger hunt efforts on Grandhome Facebook page.

Castles to visit

With longer and lighter days and (hopefully!) sunnier weather, the Easter holidays are the perfect opportunity to explore the local area. Did you know there are over 250 castles in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire? Both near and far from Grandhome, there are plenty of castle adventures for the family to enjoy during the holidays, from Craigievar Castle, said to be the inspiration for Walt Disney’s Cinderella Castle, to Crathes Castle, said to be haunted by The Green Lady. Check out Visit Aberdeen’s website for details on the castles and stately homes in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to plan your next day trip.

Many castles are home to impressive acres of land, great to stretch your legs and enjoy a relaxing spring stroll. For dog-friendly estates, we encourage you to check Visit Aberdeen’s website.
