Easter is an important time of the year to get together with family and friends and celebrate the start of spring. If you’re stuck for Easter ideas on how to make the most of your long weekend, here’s some of our favourite ways to pass the time.
Easter Egg Hunt
After the short days and cold nights of winter, the promise of spring brings much egg-citement. What better way to mark this occasion than by getting out in the open and hunting for Easter eggs? Yum.
Tips for a perfect hunt:
1). Buy your eggs. Choose from mini chocolate wrapped Easter eggs or hollow plastic eggs which can be filled with smaller sweets and treats. If you’re trying to limit the sugar intake, get crafty and task the kids with decorating hard boiled eggs.
2). Choose specific areas (indoors or out) where the hunt will take place. Be sure to hide the eggs in safe places away from dangerous tools, chemicals or poisonous plants.
3). Hide the eggs while the kids are not around. Depending on the age of the children, remember to make it relatively easy for younger ones to find the eggs, so no high places where they can’t reach.
4). Have a special prize. A mystery prize will add some extra fun. Our Happy Easter Feather Filled Balloon is perfect for marking the treasure spot and makes a lovely prize too.
5). Play another game. If you’re looking to extend the fun, try the simple but entertaining Balloon Popping game. Put some small treats and glitter inside balloons, blow them up and hide them. Children must pop the balloons to find the treats! Choose a multi-pack of balloons in pastel colours to match your Easter theme.
Meal with Family & Friends
Whether it’s a sit-down lunch, buffet or afternoon tea, you can bring spring into the home with some simple decorations.
