Making the most of your Easter at home
With the recent imposition of lockdown guidelines for gatherings, everyone has been worried about Easter and how to make the most of it. We have a few ideas that will help you. Enhance the Easter fun, so without wasting any time, take a look at this list:
- Rethink Egg Dyeing
- DIY Easter Basket
- Order Takeout for Dinner
- Virtual Easter Games
Rethink Egg Dyeing
The most common tradition every Easter is egg dyeing. However, we are trying to be considerate and keep Easter budget friendly so you might need to rethink the idea of colouring the eggs! We don’t want to waste essentials in a global pandemic!
It would be best if you try to preserve important items such as eggs for breakfast. There is a brilliant way for you to have nice coloured eggs without wasting the real ones. You may be wondering how? The answer is styrofoam eggs.
You can order them or you can make them yourself if you have some pieces of styrofoam in your storeroom. One great benefit of ordering these eggs to your doorstep is that you won’t need to make unnecessary trips to the store. Once you have those styrofoam eggs you can colour them differently with markers and you can also use them for next year’s easter.
DIY Easter Baskets
Easter baskets are the most fun thing and there is no denying it. But this year as everything is on a budget and you don’t want to spend so much money on items like easter baskets. Try to achieve all the easter fun on a budget.
So the best way is to make the easter baskets yourself this year. This is one of the best easter ideas for families and a great opportunity for people to have fun together. Gather every member of your family and take out all art and craft supplies that you have and start putting those baskets together yourself.
To make things a little bit easier. Try printing out amazing greeting cards yourself from the internet or ask children in your house to paint some handmade paintings or drawings and attach them to your baskets. After you finish the baskets the last part will be to fill them with stuff that you want to send to your friends and family. That’s totally up to you, show your creativity in the whole process and you are good to go!
Order Takeout for Dinner
This year the delivery will not be speedy as it used to be but try to order food from outside. With the precautionary measures suggested by the UK government, you can trust ordering food from nearby restaurants. This will give you a chance to spend some time with your family instead of being stuck in the kitchen making dinner for everyone!
Note: Try to order from the local business to help and support them this easter, before ordering and ask for those restaurants that are open on Sunday this easter.
Virtual Easter Games
There are a lot of games activities that may not be possible to enjoy this Easter at home. But don’t worry because we got you covered with some other great ideas. Since there are limited supplies and with social distancing. You have to focus on the games ideas that are beyond the traditional games to celebrate this Easter holiday at home. Instead of gathering everyone at home, you could play virtual games, while maintaining the social distancing required this year! There’s a game called “would you rather” that can be played with ease at home, to spend an amazing exciting time!
