Good Friday is tomorrow and if you haven’t had time to prep yet, don’t panic! There’s still time to make it a memorable Easter break. Here’s our top ideas.
Decide on your menus
Whether you’re having guests over or just feeding your usual tribe, Easter should be filled with delicious food. Sit down today and plan what you’ll eat. Baked ham is popular as is lamb. Select foods that you love or that evokes good memories. Get your
children involved in baking, whether it’s hot cross bun, angel cake or cupcakes.
Bring the spring inside
If you don’t have time, or the desire, to put together floral displays, simply sprinkle vases filled with spring flowers around your house. Alternatively, by a hyacinth or a ready-made spring display. Easter should be pretty but not stressful.
Dress your table
If you don’t have Easter table linen you can still give your table a spring feel. Fold your napkins into little bunny rabbits… takes a little practice but looks very cute! Alternatively, tie a little flower with ribbon around your napkin, or just set
it on the plate. Narcissi are perfect for this.
Plan a fun Easter egg hunt
Easter egg hunts are so much fun and you can get as creative as you like. Help younger kids find the eggs with imaginative clues, such as balloons. For older kids, a torchlight Easter egg hunt the evening before will keep them engaged. You can even paint
the eggs pre-hand in florescent paint to make them easier to find.
Factor in some craft-time with your children
Painting eggs is always enjoyable and there are tons of ideas on sites such as Pinterest. Paint them in a range of colors or decorate your eggs so they end up as something else, such as a farm animal or an American football. Use glitter, lace or ribbon
to really jazz them up. Kids love making Easter bonnets too. Find or purchase a hat and get creative. From flowers, to little chicks, let the creative juices flow.
