How to Make Easter Special in Quarantine
This year Easter is looking a bit different. Being in quarantine has split families apart and made it difficult to get supplies for the holiday. However, we should always look on the bright side and find a positive in every day. Even if you don’t have young children in your household, read the list below of things you can do to make Easter special!
- Facetime Family 👵
Not seeing your mother, father, grandparents or loved ones on the holidays can be tough. Luckily, technology means that we can still be connected! Set up a Facetime event for all of your family members. Have the meeting when you would normally see them on an Easter holiday. That means that although they can’t be there in person, you can still enjoy their company!
- Easter Egg Hunt 🐰
The classic Easter egg hunt is a favourite among children! You felt the thrill of finding more eggs than your sibling and the defeat of your parents splitting them evenly afterward. Adults can have fun Easter egg hunts too! If you have roommates, why not hide some non-chocolate items around the house? You could hide lottery tickets, mini alcohol bottles, bath bombs and other fun items. But remember, create a map of where you hid everything! Or you will be finding chocolate for months to come.
- Chalk Drawings 🖍
Who remembers chalk drawing on the sidewalk as a child? If you have a backyard with a floor you can do it again! The benefit of chalk is that it washes off almost instantaneously with water. This means that you can let your kids go crazy on the cement! Why not cut out some Easter stencils for them to use? You could even have an Easter Pictionary competition on the ground! When my kids were growing up, we used to draw little bunny feet on the tiles to make them think the Easter bunny had left a trail!
- Wild Cherry Easter Delivery 🎁
For some people, it is not possible to leave their home during this crisis. That is why Wild Cherry Events is doing Easter deliveries around the Northern Suburbs of Brisbane. Why not buy your whole family an Easter pack and open them together in the morning? We have loved surprising family members with different boxes and personalised messages. Let your family know that you care this Easter with a chocolate box!
- Build a Chocolate House 🍫
Similar to a gingerbread house but made of chocolate! These houses can be made of Cadbury, Tim Tams, Kit Kats or any other chocolate you can think of! This trend came around last Christmas when everyone realised that gingerbread is not to everyone’s taste! For the Easter season, chocolate is the only thing on people’s lips! Why not have a chocolate house competition to see who can build the best one? You could melt chocolate and use it as cement. There are heaps of YouTube channels that post chocolate creations. It might be fun to watch a video and try to recreate it!
