5 Ways to Make your Home Egg-stra Special this Easter!

5 Ways to Make your Home Egg-stra Special this Easter!

31 March 2021

Like a lot of things over the last 12 months, Easter is going to be slightly different again – but that’s okay. Luckily, homes are our speciality and we’re here to help make sure you have an egg-cellent time in yours this weekend.  

 

Have an Easter Egg Hunt  

The Easter Bunny might have to socially distance this year, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a good old classic easter egg hunt. Switch it up and leave some clues around for your family. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a big garden space – spread them around the house and take advantage of all the nooks and crannies! 

 

Get Creative with Home-made Cards 

At Easter, lots of us like to gather with family and enjoy a beautiful long weekend whilst stuffing our faces with chocolate. Sadly, with lockdown restrictions, it means we can’t spend time with everyone we love – especially grandparents. Why not show them some springtime love, by making them a home-made card? Get creative, draw your best chicks and daffodils and you’re guaranteed to put a smile on your loved ones' faces.  

 

Decorate your Home 

Bring Easter home by decorating your home in an Easter theme. If you’re super-organised and already have some bunny-themed decorations packed away, this will be easy. 

If not, why not make your own daffodils and springtime animals? If you’re not much of an artist, don’t worry, our charity partners at The Children’s Trust have an Easter activity pack, that includes some cute furry friends you can print. 

You can download it for free at https://www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/sites/default/files/2021-03/Virtual%20Easter%20activity%20pack%202021.pdf but your donations are welcome! 

 

Bake, Bake, Bake! 

Fill your home with the delicious smells of hot cross buns, carrot cake and whatever your favourite sweet treats are. Grab your whisk and a big bag of icing sugar and make some sweet treats that will even make that Easter bunny jealous.  

 

Egg Painting  

If you need a little break from the chocolatey madness, why not do some egg painting? This is great if you have little ones. All you need is a carton of eggs, some paints and away you go!  

You could even have a virtual zoom competition with your family and friends! 

 

Whatever your plans this year, remember, home (and chocolate) is where the heart is. Whilst it may be a little different right now, there is light at the end of the tunnel and soon we will all be hopping for joy! Stay positive and have an egg-cellent weekend!
