Think about all of the novelty chocolate you can get at easter like eggs and bunnies. Easter is a time that we buy lots of silly shaped chocolates and random things. I mean, I was once given a Creme Egg wearing a chick outfit...!?
I love Easter and I love coming up with ideas on different ways we can celebrate things. I have put a short list of gifts and Easter activities together with little ideas on how to make Easter a little bit special in your home.
This idea works for children and adults alike. Children end up with a whole load of chocolate which, let's face it, isn't entirely good for them. Why not add in some fun activities for them to do as well like colouring or masks?
Give the home something extra and the children something to decorate. Why not put up an Easter tree and give them baubles and decorations for it?
Eggs and Mugs
Fill a mug full of little eggs and use it as a gift for an older child or an adult. You can never have too many mugs and if you find a really cute one then whats not to love!?
Easter Sunday Activities
Easter Egg Hunt
Okay so this one is obvious BUT it's popular for a reason. Being able to hide eggs around the garden and the house keeps children entertained for ages and is a lot of fun for them. Get creative with the eggs you hide and make sure to keep a big one aside for the winner!
Let the Easter Bunny leave some Easter treats out ready for the morning. Santa leaves presents for the children on Christmas Eve, why not let them have a little something to get excited about Easter Sunday?
Rainy day? To warm to leave chocolate eggs outside for a hunt? Well why not pop a film on the box and then do something fun. This little rabbit sewing kit will be something fun to do with the children on Easter Sunday. Maybe get those Easter themed colouring pads out of their hampers to use as well?
There are loads of things you can do at Easter, all of these things take a little effort but are also low-cost. I love looking at all of the Easter bits and bobs; little chicks and rabbits - very cute! Why not do something a bit different this Easter instead of just handing your child an Easter egg?
