In-person and virtual activities to keep the kids entertained this month.
Now that restrictions are slowly easing, many of us are looking forward to getting a breath of fresh air (with our masks on, of course!). For your little actors and actresses, check out the Learn Drama With Mr. Men And Little Miss Characters workshop. Or how about an Easter Bunny Digital Art Lesson at home? Whether you’re looking to go on a virtual charity hike with the kids or make some delicious Greek cuisine, there’s definitely something to keep you and the kids busy this month.
Editor’s Note: The situation in Hong Kong regarding closures and restrictions on opening hours due to the coronavirus is constantly evolving, so please call to check for any changes. Many businesses are taking extra precautions, but please make sure you follow the latest government advice and stay home if you have recently travelled overseas, have interacted with anyone who has been away, or display any symptoms.

For mamas who are hoping to stay at home this Easter, here’s a digital art class for the little ones to find (and create) some easter bunnies without having to leave the house. Hosted by Young Art USA, the digital art class series seeks to cover the fundamentals of digital drawing and sketching. With a strong focus on the outlining process and colouring techniques, this particular Easter workshop will allow the little ones to create unique easter egg designs and sketch adorable animals. You will need to prepare a computer or iPad accompanied by a stylus or mouse, but if your kid is more of a pen-and-paper kind of artist, that’s fine too! Click here to sign up.
