Get ready for Easter weekend

The Easter Weekend

Easter weekend is just around the corner, meaning that there are four days of family fun to look forward to. But holidays can be hectic, and it can be difficult to know how to structure your time off.

To help you keep on top of everything and plan a wonderful long weekend for the whole family to enjoy, we’ve come up with some exciting Easter activities. From baking and BBQs to the very best outdoor toys, follow our Easter weekend checklist to guarantee smiles all round.

Serve A BBQ Buffet

If there’s one activity that you can count on to please the whole family, then it’s a BBQ. The ideal way to spend a sunny afternoon, kids and adults alike will love relaxing in the garden to the delicious smells and sounds of sizzling food.

Alongside choosing between a charcoal and a gas BBQ, it’s also a good idea to think about where people will sit. Picnic rugs and cushions are great for creating an al fresco vibe, while stylish patio sets are useful if you’re feeding plenty of hungry guests.

Whatever garden furniture you decide on, be sure to string up pretty outdoor lights to give the evening a gorgeous glow!

Bounce To

With the little ones off school, you’re probably wondering how you’re going to keep them busy. For children that are full of beans, why not try a trampoline? Just the thing to put the bounce into playtime, our practical and safe designs will provide hours of entertainment.

Or, if your child loves to pretend play, you can’t go wrong with a playhouse. Setting them up for countless adventures and letting them enjoy their own special space, a playhouse is a wonderful way for your child to spend time with friends and siblings.

Ready, Set, Bake

While the weather during the Easter holidays can be unpredictable, there’s no reason to let a few showers dampen your day. For times when venturing outside seems impossible, why not get your little ones involved with an Easter bake?

From bunny-shaped biscuits to chocolate cakes and marzipan delights, baking is a brilliant (and delicious!) way to bring the family together. Make sure you use non-stick baking equipment to minimise fuss and help make cleaning up a breeze.

Easter Games

When there’s a chance of chocolate, kids (and adults!) of all ages can’t wait to get involved. Luckily, an Easter egg hunt is a family-favourite way to celebrate the holiday and gives everyone a chance to enjoy some yummy surprises.

As well as rustling up tasty treats and hiding them around the house and garden, you can also turn the hunt into a hilarious activity by providing fancy dress costumes and props. Why not cut out some bunny footprints and let each child wear our adorable glittery bunny rabbit ears?
