Both lovely choices but your money will go a lot further in Amsterdam

Weather - Nice. Last Easter we had lots of snow in northern Europe. Copenhagen will be the most expensive. Nice is pretty good for those ages - playgrounds on Colline du Chateau. Mini tourist train. Beach. Lots of museums. Amsterdam could also be good. Accommodation is expensive though. It is not guaranteed to be very warm.

Copenhagen is up there with my favourite city breaks ever. It is expensive but we knew that before we went so wasn't an issue. I have a few friends who have had family holidays there and all of them loved it.

Save Copenhagen for the summer. Tivoli opens mid April and it’s always rammed when it first opens. Plus you’ll get more daylight and no chance of snow.

I would go for Amsterdam, the weather will be better, may still be cold but not as cold as Copenhagen.
Amsterdam has plenty to do for this age group. For some things it may be worth splitting up, the older one may be interested in the WWII resistance museum or the Jewish History museum which may be a bit too much for the younger one.

If you can get a direct flight to Nice, I'd go there, as while I love Amsterdam and Copenhagen and they're both great in the summer, they could be cold and dreary at Easter. Nice should be pleasantly warm and sunny.

If you go to Amsterdam there are some interesting things nearby to visit outside of the city. Zaandam for the windmills, Leiden beautiful canals and the botanic garden, perhaps Zandvoort beach if a warm Easter.

This assumes Mr Rutte has lifted restrictions and you can travel to the Netherlands.
