Five Things to do this Easter For Kids and Grown Ups

Easter Spring Flowers

So, it's Easter weekend, we need to entertain the kids and keep the grown ups happy.   Here are some ideas to get you started for both kids and grown ups:





For Kids

1.  Make Easter crafts, from painting boiled eggs to decorating Easter bonnets, Easter and Spring are certainly inspiring crafty times of the year.

2.  Bake Easter shaped biscuits and make Easter Egg Nest Cakes- it wouldn't be Easter without them.

3.  Visit your local farm or animal park to see real chicks eggs, bunnies and lambs.  The chicks have just hatched at Anna's Welsh Zoo, here in Pembrokeshire, Wales.  

4.  Go on an Easter Egg Hunt- plan your own or take part in one of the many hunts organised up and down the country such as The National Trust Easter Egg Trails

5.  Enjoy eating Easter Eggs!  I used to love unwrappping the foil, admiring the patterned chocolate , opening the egg and finding extra surprise treats inside!  Then saviour the chocolate- delicious!



For Adults

1.  Have a bubble bath- I love any excuse for a bath full of Lush goodies and I can't resist their Easter range  featuring cute bunnies, bath eggs and even the bunch of carrots bubble bars pictured above.

2.  Make or treat yourself to a new Spring candle, I've made new candles using a Spring Flowers Scent but Yankee Candle have a special Bunny Cake  candle out for Easter and we're all lusting after Diptyque's new Rosafilia luxury candle.

3.  Read a bestseller.  Accompanying me in my bath of lushness will be a good read.  Top choices this Spring are The Book of You, Elizabeth is Missing and The Miniaturist.

4.  If you enjoy online games then many of these also have an Easter theme, such as an Easter Egg Hunt online bingo game which also gives you bingo bonus codes if you fancy a play.

5.    Enjoy Easter television- Bank Holidays mean good TV- from Splash to Skyfall.  After a day of entertaining the kids on Bank Holiday Monday, I think we all deserve to watch a couple of boxsets on Netflix while scoffing Easter Eggs, don't you?

If you're feeling a bit guilty about allowing yourself some leisure time over the Easter Bank Holiday then take time to remember the wise words of the Welsh poet, W.H. Davies:


Leisure


What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
What are your plans this Easter?
