There is nothing quite like being together with family for the holidays, and Easter is no exception. But this year, Easter is going to be a little different. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, you may not be able to travel and be with loved ones on this holiday. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. We want to help make this difficult time a little easier, by suggesting some fun activities for you and your family. Here are our top activities:
Start your Easter fun with the most important meal of the day – breakfast! How about bunny-shaped pancakes? This is a great way to get the kids involved and creative. Here are some more egg-cellent baking ideas that will keep you busy:
Easter Egg Hunt
This one is for all ages! Let’s face it – you’re never too old for an Easter egg hunt! Set one up around the house and in the yard for some true Easter fun. This is one of the most exciting Easter traditions and no COVID-19 is going to stop the fun! It will keep the whole family entertained.
Virtual Family lunch
Missing the extended family? We know these times can be tough, especially if you’re unable to spend it with family. So, to make your day eggs-tra special, organise a virtual family lunch. Jump on FaceTime or Zoom and enjoy a meal together for Easter. It’s a great way to keep in contact and catch up.
If you find yourself bored or wanting to get a little crafty, why not paint and decorate some eggs to pass some time? If you have kids, this is a great way to get involved and help keep things fun this Easter. Get your paints and food colouring ready! Here are some of our favourite Easter craft ideas:
Play Easter Games
After you’ve enjoyed your Easter baking, lunch, egg hunt, craft and games, snuggle up with the kids and enjoy a movie together. If you’re struggling to find some Easter movies for the whole family, here are our top picks:
- Peter Rabbit
- Rise of the Guardians
- Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade
Camp in the backyard
- The annual Easter camping trip with family and friends might have been cancelled; but if you have a backyard, don’t pack away the camping gear yet! Why not set up a tent and enjoy your night under the stars at your own home. Make some pizzas, toast some marshmallows and share some stories with your family.
For Mum and Dad: Make Easter themed cocktails
Probably the most exciting one on the list… for Mum and Dad! Take some time to relax and enjoy a nice Easter Cocktail. Here are our top three suggestions:
We hope these ideas will help you and your family have an egg-cellent weekend. Horan & Bird wish you a very happy and safe Easter.
