Easter Activities For All The Family To Enjoy In Lockdown
As the days continue to warm up and Easter is on the horizon, we’ve put together a list of fun activities for all the family that will keep everyone engaged and connected throughout the holiday.
Turn your hand to baking
Getting little ones involved in the kitchen is always fun, dedicating time to a communal activity that results in tasty treats is always a win. This has been a firm favourite lockdown activity by all of us and now that Easter is around the corner, it’s the perfect time to have a go at our vegan hot cross bun recipe.
They’re soft, sticky and sweet and won’t take long to be eaten up!
Springtime is perfect for planting
Whether you’re working with a window box, shared or private garden this bank holiday weekend is an ideal time to pick up your gardening gloves. From planting flower bulbs and seeds to fruit and vegetables, this is another activity that can easily capture everyone’s attention.
Get crafty and make some DIY Easter decorations for scrap fabrics
As we’ve all gotten to know the insides of our home better than ever before, it makes it all the more fun to have a little redecoration to celebrate a new time of year. Why not turn your living room into the Easter Bunny’s paradise with some homemade crafts?
Check out Crafting Cheerfully’s guide to making beautiful Easter crafts with unwanted scraps of material you can find around your home.
Go on a daffodil walk
Long family walks are fun and important at any time of the year, but right now a trip to a local park of woodland is an adventure into the sunny world of daffodils! You could plan a new walking route to take in what’s in bloom around the corner from you – you could even take paper and pencils and see who can find and draw the most interesting flowers!
If you’re not sure where you might find them locally, have a look at this guide from Country File.
And, of course, have a vegan Easter egg hunt!
Saving the best for last – have a good old fashioned Easter egg hunt! This can be so much fun regardless of age (parents and teenagers included) and could include riddles and even a map if you’re feeling adventurous.
And if you’re still in need of some Easter egg ideas, check out our favourite vegan Easter eggs under a fiver here.
