How To Keep Easter Alive In Lockdown
Easter is normally buzzing with fun, family events over the long weekend, but sadly this is no ordinary Easter. All the joy and eggcitement we would normally outsource is now left for us to create.
Luckily, the online world is full of great ideas, and the Easter Bunny knows where you live, so you can look like an Easter eggspert and deliver a little magic at home.
Here are some ways you can keep Easter alive in lockdown. Better hop to it…
Wear Your Sunday Best
Social distancing has probably left your wardrobe languishing, while you get around in your quarantine get-up. Here’s the perfect eggscuse to get out of your pyjamas, brush your hair and put on something sparkly for the day; and let the kids choose their own special outfit.
Create an Easter Hunt
Try an Easter hunt in the house or backyard - and it doesn't just have to be chocolate eggs! Try Easter-themed stickers, colouring books, stationery, accessories or cuddly bunnies. You could even start with a letter from the Easter Bunny, or leave some sneaky footprints (paper printables or flour) or pieces of fur (cotton wool) for some added drama. If you want to get adventurous with puzzles and riddles they have to solve to get their loot, here are some scavenger hunt clues you can print, or get the creative juices flowing and make your own!
Grab the glitter! Seek out the cellophane! Get the fun stuff ready for some hands-on arts and crafts. There are loads of Easter activities and free printables online to keep little bunnies busy and eggscited. From elaborately decorated eggs to DIY bunny-ear baskets, here are some of our favourite Easter projects:

Fingerprint Bunnies and Chicks
Decorate the House
Better still, you can get crafty and decorate the house and at the same time! Lift your spirits with lots of colour and get the kids involved with some DIY decor. Get out any party supplies like streamers to hang around the house and draw bunny faces and Easter egg designs on balloons. You might even try your hand at making an Easter bunny garland or easter wreath.
Most importantly have fun!
