Easter Adventures For The Family
This year, Easter is going to be a little different and we’re taking up the Easter activities to the next level! It’s going to be the perfect opportunity to re-connect with your family and create some beautiful memories and guess what? Chocolate eggs, Easter egg hunts, hot cross buns, arts and crafts and all the other Easter treats that the children love, can all be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home.
Be sure to have the camera at the ready this Easter as we have gathered some of our favourite, unique and exciting Easter adventures, that your family will love. From Easter treasure hunts to Easter inspired picnics, there’s so much to do, just choose your favourite!
Unique Easter Treasure Hunt
For the little woodland explorers on the hunt for Easter eggs, enjoy this classic Easter tradition in your own garden and around the house. Create a map for the children with clues on where to find the eggs and then, simply hide them around the garden or the house. To make it easier for them to collect their eggs, give them one of our rustic wicker shopping baskets that they can use to collect the treats in.
Or instead of traditional chocolate Easter egg hunts, why not organise a unique Easter treasure hunt? Simply empty an egg shell and fill them with little scrolls that have rewards on them. Such as a trip to the 99p shop to buy a new toy, or a trip to buy an ice cream in the summer holidays? They will thoroughly enjoy it and it will also create some lovely days out to look forward too!
Easter Inspired Picnic
Create an Easter inspired picnic, filled with delicious Easter inspired goodies! Including rabbit shaped sandwiches, hot cross buns and don’t forget to include traditional, yummy Easter nests made with cornflakes covered in melted chocolate, completed with mini eggs on top! Browse our wide range of timeless picnic baskets and choose your favourite to take with you on your picnic in the garden the garden!
Easter Den In The Garden
Speaking of your garden, use it as an easy opportunity to occupy the children for a while and give yourself a break from the chaos! Just grab some old sheets or towels, some cushions and a clothes horse and set up a magical Easter den in the garden for the children to play in. Complete this fabulous den with some fun games and some delicious snacks. This will give you an opportunity to do a little bit of spring cleaning or to sit down with a coffee for 20 minutes in peace.
Baking at home
Baking at home is one of our favourite pastimes. You could rustle up some traditional Easter biscuits, which the children can decorate or why make our favourite and delicious Easter recipe, a hot cross bun, bread and butter pudding! It’s so delicious and easy to make, plus it’s the perfect treat for afters if you’re planning an Easter Sunday lunch this year.
Unique Easter Gifts For Family
Finally, if you are looking for a Easter gift for a family member, friend or if you’re planning to create a family raffle why not fill up one of our hamper baskets with some of your favourite Easter goodies and include a little chocolate egg in each one for them. It makes such a simple, yet thoughtful gift!
