How To Celebrate Easter at home
With the end of lockdown finally in sight, the nation is looking forward to their first family hugs in over a year. We still have to spend another special occasion, Easter, in lockdown though, meaning yet another ‘holiday’ we can’t share with our loved ones.
Easter egg hunt –
An easter egg hunt is a great way to get all the family involved, even the grown ups, because who doesn’t love finding chocolate? You can create your own or simply buy reasonably priced easter hunts in all UK supermarkets. You can include general knowledge questions to get the older ones thinking or keep it light hearted and hide them all over the garden.
Why not set up a family and friends Zoom call so you can all complete your Easter egg hunt together and enjoy the excitement!
Easter bonnets –
Get creative this Easter and design and make your very own Easter bonnet! In many craft shops you can purchase a simple kit to follow or even use an old hat you have knocking around and use stickers and paints to decorate it. This is a great idea for small children to keep them occupied during the school holidays.
You could also set up a Zoom call with their friends and have an Easter bonnet competition and let the parents vote or even try and get your local school involved too!
Easter cornflake cakes –
Wondering what to do with the piles of chocolate you have that are taking over your kitchen sides? Why not make chocolate cornflake cakes. Simply melt down the chocolate and add in cornflakes, you could even experiment with other cereals. Then add the mixture to paper cupcake cases and then put into the fridge to set. These are super delicious, use up all the extra Easter egg chocolate and the children will enjoy making them.
Decorate your house –
Even though there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel, being in lockdown is really hard on all of us. So why not brighten up your home by decorating with Easter related decorations and bring some cheer into your home. Most supermarkets and craft shops sell well priced Easter decorations or why not make your own? Create paper chains, draw and design your dream Easter egg or make an Easter door wreath to bring cheer to all your neighbours.

Socially distanced walk –
While the children are off school on the Easter holidays, why not get out of the house and enjoy the spring weather, you could even meet up for a social distanced walk with a friend or family member. This is a great way for the children to burn off some energy, you could even give them a list of items they need to spot such as a horse in a field, an oak tree or even a yellow car etc. This is great fun for children and gives adults a well deserved break!
