When Easter 2020 arrived, we were in the very early days of National Lockdown. Twelve months later and we’re still living under COVID restrictions so we should be pros at celebrating occasions at home. If you’re looking for ways to make Easter 2021 special, I’ve listed the ways we’ll be marking the day below.
Good Friday – 2nd April 2021
Easter Sunday – 4th April 2021
Easter Monday – 5th April 2021
We love to decorate the house so a few weekends before Easter we pull out the crafts and start making. If you’re struggling for ideas, I’ve put together a Pinterest board for inspiration here https://pin.it/3DxOFRo
Easter Themed Breakfast
Start the day with a fun family breakfast filled with simple and delicious Easter breakfast treats.
Get Your Bake On
The long weekend that comes with Easter means there’s often time for baking.
Whether you opt for traditional hot cross buns and simnel cake or tasty chocolate brownies and iced biscuits, there’s loads of easy Easter baking ideas to get the kids involved with.
Plan An Egg Hunt
Keep the kids entertained over Easter by leading them on an egg hunt around the house and garden. Now that my two are a little older, I plan the hunt with tricky clues that lead them to the location of the sweet stash.
Traditional Roast Dinner
I think Easter is the only time we have a lamb roast (I prefer other meats). If you’re planning a Sunday Lunch, check out this post for perfect Yorkshire Puddings https://northeasteats.home.blog/2021/02/07/perfect-yorkshire-puddings/
Dress For The Occassion
Growing up, I always received a new outfit at Easter and it’s something I’ve done for Evie and Harry. We might not be allowed to go out to celebrate Easter but why not dress up for the day anyway?
Video Calls With Family
According to current government guidelines, the rules for social contact, which will be in place over Easter, state rule of 6 or 2 households can meet outdoors. For those not in your bubble, be sure to include them in your day with a phone or video call.
Easter Movie Night
Relax in front of the TV and watch an Easter themed movie. Our top picks include
• Peter Rabbit
• Rise Of The Guardians
The Most Extra Hot Chocolate
You might have seen these circulating on social media. This delicious hot chocolate is made by pouring hot milk over a chocolate egg topped with cream, marshmallows, sprinkles and anything else you fancy. Totally indulgent but a lovely way to end the day.
This ones for the adults to enjoy once the little ones are tucked up in bed. Unwind with an Irish Cream served *in* confectionery – alcohol and chocolate? Yes please!
However you’re celebrating, have a safe and enjoyable time!
