With Easter now just around the corner, now is the time to start getting ready for this fun time of the year. There is plenty that you can do now to make sure that this year is extra special and an Easter than you and the whole family will always look back on fondly. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Decorate the House
Decorating the house can be a fun family activity that gets you all in the mood for the festive period. You can decorate by getting the kids to make some Easter-themed artwork to put around the home, with fresh flowers and cute Easter crafts which you can place around the home. The change in weather around this time of year is welcome so decorating the home to reflect this and maximizing the natural light can really make a big difference beyond Easter.
There are also plenty of fun activities that you can plan for the whole family over the Easter holidays. This will, of course, include egg hunts around the home and garden where everyone has to find the hidden eggs and also painting eggshells which is a great tradition that everyone can enjoy and a chance to be creative. Other Easter-themed activities include egg and spoon races, water balloons and egg toss (anything egg-related!).
One of the best things about Easter is getting to enjoy delicious food and there are lots of good treats to enjoy over the Easter period. Easter eggs are, obviously, essential for this time of the year and it is always nice buying ones that are a little bit more special and seeing the kids enjoy them. In addition to eggs and chocolate in general, hot cross buns are traditional at this time of the year and other good options include pancakes, muffins and fruits.
Easter is a lovely time of the year and a great time to spend quality time with the family. It is always nice to celebrate after the winter months and hopefully this will give you a few ideas for how to make this year extra special and one which you and the kids will always look back fondly on.
