Painting Easter eggs at home with the kids

Staying home this Easter? Celebrate the long weekend (and start of the school holidays) with these six eggs-pert ideas to make your Easter an egg-cellent one!

1. Go camping… in your own back yard!

Getting away for a mini break has become a custom for so many of us over the Easter long-weekend. But even if you’re not going away doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little staycation! Get the camping gear out, put the tent up and create some memories under the stars, from the comfort and safety of your own home.

2. Bake your own Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns go hand in hand with Easter, so why not have a go at making your own. Check out one of our favorite Hot Cross Bunny recipes by Maggie Beer.

3. Get creative

Get the whole family involved and paint some eggs or make your own Bunny ears or Easter hat. Check out these and other Easter craft ideas.

4. Catch up with Friends… virtually

While travel and social catch-ups this Easter might look a little different to that of 2020, if you’re not heading away make the most of the long weekend and school holidays by catching up with those that live further away online.

Taking the Easter party online is made super easy with apps like FaceTime, Zoom and Skype. So organise a time, invite your friends, grab your freshly baked Hot Cross Buns and personalised Bunny ears and get your party on from your living room.

5. Bring the Royal Easter Show to you

If you’re not heading to Sydney for the Easter Show, why not bring the Easter Show to you and shop for Easter showbags online.

6. Netflix and Chill(dren)

After a big weekend of Easter fun the kids might be feeling a bit eggs-hausted! So why not treat them to a movie night. A little googling will give you a list of Easter-inspired kids movies like Hop, Peter Rabbit or The Dog Who Saved Easter.

Heading out and about?

It’s been a real roller coaster for local business over the last 18 months or so. Why not show your support for these communities and take a day trip to explore your local area? If you’re planning on stopping for a meal or visiting a tourist attraction, book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Do your research first to ensure it’s safe to visit and that you’re not breaching any current restrictions.
