We know that this Easter is going to be very different for everyone. You may not have been able to get your usual Easter treats for the kids or had time to plan anything before the lockdown. Never fear we are here to help.
We have put together some of our favourite Easter ideas. Using what you might have at home, making it fun and stress free for the whole family.
♥ Treasure Hunt. Using an empty egg carton, paint the bottom of each egg cup a different colour. If you don't have paints at home you can use felt pens, crayons or coloured pencils. "Let the hunt begin". Get the kids to find items around the house or garden that match the colours in the cups.
♥ Egg & Spoon Race. Fun for all ages. Using any large spoon from the kitchen, balance a small (preferably round or oval) object on top of the spoon and race one another from one end of the hallway or garden to the other.
♥ Easter Rocks. Our kids love getting involved in painting Easter rocks, and this year we made quite the collection, a family tradition in our household. We hide them around the garden for the children (and adults) to find. Sometimes there's even a chocolate egg or bunny hiding amongst the rocks.
♥ Meringue Nests. Tasty little Easter nests. You can make the meringue nests in advance as they keep for several days in an airtight container. Fill the centre with whipped cream, yoghurt or frosting. Add chocolate sprinkles or desiccated coconut for texture. Top with mini candied eggs if you have them or anything 'egg' shaped such as yoghurt coated raisins, blueberries, chocolate drops or mini marshmallows.
♥ Apple Donuts. These are so fun to make with kids. Remove the core from an apple, slice the apple to create 'donuts' then spread with delicious toppings such as... yoghurt with fresh fruit and crumbled granola, peanut butter and cornflake dust or for an extra special treat make up some cupcake frosting and decorate with sprinkles.
♥ Carrot Patch. Create a mini garden and enjoy a healthy snack at the same time. Using a small bowl, container or ramekin, fill with humous, 'plant' the carrots into the dip and finish off with sprigs of parsley.
