Easter is just around the corner! The weather is finally warming up, trees starting to bloom and many are preparing to celebrate the festive weekend. Although this year things are a bit different from what we’re used to, don’t let the current situation ruin your fun. Now is the perfect time to spend some quality time with your family, eat a lot of chocolate and lift everyone’s spirits. There are plenty of Easter games and activities you can enjoy with your loved ones while staying safe and socially distancing.
Here are some fun ideas to make this Easter celebration one to remember.
Make your own Easter eggs
What would be Easter without chocolate? It’s always great to receive Easter eggs but making your own can be even more fun. Chocolate eggs are actually really easy to make and taste just delicious. You can follow this simple recipe or find another one online. This is definitely something that both adults and kids can enjoy. But what if you want your friends to get involved as well? No problem, set up a Zoom call, compare your Easter eggs with your friends, and decide which one of you came up with the coolest creation.
Play Easter Bingo
Because who doesn’t love Bingo? This is a game that will get the whole family into the Easter mood and keep you entertained for hours. It’s also a great way to spend some screen-free time with your loved ones. Simply print out the Easter Bingo cards and start playing. If you want, you can make the game even more competitive by setting up some fun prizes for the winner.
Go for an Easter hike
With the weather finally starting to warm up, why not get some fresh air and spend the Easter weekend outside. As most of the places are currently closed, there is no better time to discover the beautiful nature around you. So grab the whole family and find a hiking trail near you. You can even bring some tea and sandwiches and enjoy a cosy Easter picnic. Spending time in nature is a great idea because it can help you reduce stress, improve your mood and boost feelings of happiness. It’s also a perfect way to maintain a healthy lifestyle while you cannot go to the gym.
Play Egg Roulette
If you’re in the mood for something a bit silly but extra fun, then Egg Roulette might be the perfect choice for you. So how does it work? To play the game, you need 12 eggs: 8 boiled and 4 raw. Mix all the eggs up and place them on the table. The players must each pick an egg and smash it upon their own head. The player who cracks the most raw eggs is the loser and gets to clean up all the mess.
Have an Egg Decorating competition
Decorating eggs is one of the most exciting parts of Easter. The holiday weekend just wouldn’t be complete without it. But this year, take the decorating to the next level and try something unique. An egg decorating contest is a perfect way to get the whole family involved and boost everyone’s creativity. If you need some inspiration, here you can find 60 egg decorating ideas from disco balls to sugar-covered Easter eggs. Once the designs are ready, get everyone to vote for their favourite egg. And don’t forget to come up with a special prize for the winner!
Although Easter celebrations will be different for the second year in a row, there is no need to cancel your plans. Right now is the perfect time to distract yourself from the current situation and start some new traditions at home. Follow these simple ideas and make Easter fun, while socially distancing.
