Easter is just around the corner, bringing with it plenty of fun family activities. If you’re looking for ways to spend quality time with your loved ones this Easter, here are five fun ideas to make the most of the long weekend.
Go On an Easter Egg Hunt
An Easter egg hunt is a classic way to celebrate. Hide chocolate eggs and small toys around your home and garden for the kids to find. Make it more challenging by hiding them in trickier spots as the children get older. For younger kids, get out bed sheets and use them as a ‘nest’ for the prize eggs. Afterwards, let everyone tuck into their chocolatey rewards! Some National Trust locations also host their own Easter egg hunts and these can be a fun day out for all the family.
Go to Church
Easter is a significant and spiritual time for many families, so attending an Easter church service allows you to reflect on the meaning of the season. Kids can partake in traditional Easter rituals like candle lighting and bell ringing before trying to spot the Easter Bunny. Many churches also organise fun crafts or egg decoration sessions as part of their Easter celebrations. Going to church on Easter Sunday allows families to connect with their community and join in the holiday spirit.
Enjoy an Easter Hamper
Treat your family with a luxury Easter hamper brimming with seasonal chocolate, cheese and Easter themed gifts. Easter gift boxes make some of the best Easter presents and can be catered to your family’s exact tastes and interests. Focus purely on chocolate or do something a little different this year by purchasing a beauty themed hamper or a homeware themed one. You can even find hampers for those with dietary restrictions so nothing is out of bounds.
Indulge in Chocolate
Gorge on chocolate this Easter! No celebration is complete without munching on scrumptious chocolate eggs hand delivered by the Easter bunny himself. But you don’t have to wait until Easter Sunday to get started! Get creative by baking sweet holiday treats featuring chocolate like nest cookies or egg-shaped brownies. Aside from all the cooking and baking, don’t forget to actually set some time aside to relax and just eat chocolate!
Make Arts and Crafts
Making DIY Easter arts and crafts is an egg-cellent screen-free activity for kids. Have an arty afternoon decorating hard-boiled eggs with stickers and colourful patterns. Make fluffy Easter chicks together with pipe cleaners and pom poms or try your hand at origami bunnies. Paint clay pots to hold miniature gardens with fresh spring flowers. Crafting is a wonderful way for little ones to get immersed in the spirit of Easter. Display these pretty handmade creations around your home for a heartwarming, homemade touch.
This Easter promises chocolate eggs galore alongside opportunities for families to bond and embrace the holiday magic. These are just a few ideas to inspire your clan to come together and celebrate Easter in style. Whatever you choose to do, create special memories with your loved ones and have a very Happy Easter!
