7 ways to celebrate Easter during lockdown
1.Try a different kind of easter egg hunt
What’s easter without an egg hunt! Make a treasure map to find easter eggs - mark hidden chocolates on the map and everyone has to find them. Be creative with hiding places if you have limited space - how about in the cutlery drawer or behind a pillow?
2. Mouthwatering recipes to try in the kitchen
Everyone’s a baker in lockdown … apparently shops can’t keep up with the demand for flour and yeast - so spread your baking wings and try your own
hot X buns and easter eggs or if you feel like something a little different, some hot cross bun bread.
4. Try some new games
Guess the number of jelly beans, Easter egg basketball, scrabble or bananagrams with all-Easter themes. If you haven’t run out of lockdown champagne, then pin the tail on the easter bunny could be fun for the adults - the winner gets an egg or a big bar of chocolate. Then there are some great online escape games - like this pirate game, or for the Harry Potter fans - a Hogwarts Digital Escape room.
5. Do some day dreaming and travel a little
Do a little day-dreaming about where you can travel when we’re all allowed out again - and even if you don’t get there, you can still go for the virtual tour - to Patagonia for instance, or Lapland to see the northern lights. Let us know if you find any other beauties!
6. Build a pasta bridge
For kids and adults alike, there are some great “engineering” challenges from the Dyson Foundation here - using simple items from your home, like pasta!
6. Try Kareoke
7. Netflix and chill
This one should need no explanation - the best part of a weekend!
