At Home Easter Activities for 2021

We might still be in lockdown this Easter, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t lots of different Easter activities that we can do in the comfort of our own homes! It won’t be long until we are able to see, hug and visit family and friends after such a long time apart, but until then, we have to consider others and stay home.

There are so many Easter activities you can do at home, either by yourself, with your partner, or with your family. After going into a morning Easter egg chocolate coma, take a look at some of our ideas below to make the most out of your day.

Remember, we are able to host leisure stays from the 12th of April for single households and two households or groups of six from the 17th of May. So what are you waiting for? Get in contact today and book a getaway for your post-lockdown celebrations!

For the Chicks

1. Easter Egg Hunt

By Gabe Pierce on UnSplash

You cannot have a fabulous Easter without going on an Easter egg hunt around your house or garden! Buy some small wrapped chocolate eggs and hide them in various places around your house and garden, then watch your children run around like Sherlock, enthusiastically searching to find the most eggs.

It is a cheap way to have some fun around the house – and then you get the eat the chocolate after, so what’s not to love?

2. Garden Games

By Braedon McLeod on UnSplash

Are you all praying for sunshine and heat to arrive soon, because we don’t know about you, but we are so done with the cold! If the weather is nice for Easter (and fingers crossed it is), why not look at getting out in the garden for some old-school garden games?

There are many outdoor games you can buy on places like Amazon for a fun-filled Easter outside. Why not look at croquet, garden dominoes, cricket, or bowls? Obviously make sure you have the appropriate space to play these games first, but it’s definitely a fun way to spend time outside with the family!

Take a look at some outdoor games here. 

3. Egg Decorating

By Bianca Ackermann on UnSplash

Egg decorating is one of the fantastic Easter activities for those who don’t mind getting a little messy! Set up your kitchen table with table covers, paints, brushes, glue and LOTS of glitter, and go crazy painting some hard-boiled eggs!

We cannot stress enough, how important it is for these eggs to be HARD BOILED! You don’t want to be just finishing a Da Vinci-esque painted egg, only for it to crack, break and then cover you in sticky yolk!

You can do this activity by yourself, with your partner or sibling or as a whole family. Why not even get other friends and family involved over Zoom and compete to see who can come up with the most eggcellent design?

4. Egg & Spoon Race

By Melani Sosa on UnSplash

We all remember the egg and spoon races we took part in during our primary school years, so for one of your Easter activities, why not try to recreate an old-school sports day?

Egg and spoon races usually use uncooked eggs which makes the dropping of the egg even more hilarious. But of course, your garden can be your pride and joy so we understand that you may not want runny yolk all in your landscaping! To avoid this, hard boil your eggs first so that most of the egg will be intact if it is dropped!

Of course, you might just want the race to be more authentic, in which case, damn the landscaping!

5. Family Flower Planting

By Tim Gouw on UnSplash

If you love your gardening, why not get the whole family involved to plant some beautiful flowers? You can choose to plant inside or outside and will be able to teach children about plants, growth, and agriculture!

You can choose some fragrant flowers, some healthy vegetables, sweet fruits or even some herbs and spices which you can then use later on in the year for your cooking! Garden centres are open, so take a little trip out and pick up some seeds ready for an Easter day full of green fingers!

For the Hens & Roosters

6. Virtual Brunch

By Rachel Park on UnSplash

We can’t see a friend until April the 12th, but until then, that doesn’t stop us from connecting virtually! We have missed the meals out with family and friends this past year, so why not try to recreate a fancy brunch out for one of your Easter activities?

You can choose to cook your brunch from scratch, pick up pastries from a supermarket, or order from your favourite local. Why not add some fancy tipples such as bellinis or mimosas? Make sure you are all technically set up and enjoy one of the last virtual meals with family and friends (hopefully!).

7. Virtual Crafting Party

By Steve Johnson on UnSplash

Keeping with the virtual theme, why not look into doing virtual crafting sessions with friends and family? If you have children, it will be a great way to keep them preoccupied for a few hours, or for a more adult session, make it a crafting challenge or competition with the loser buying a round of drinks at your local pub after lockdown!

There are many crafting ideas you can get involved with for a super creative Easter. Find some great ideas here. 

8. Virtual Easter Baking Challenge

By Freestocks on UnSplash

Another virtual activity you could do with family and friends is to have a virtual baking challenge! Mimic the Great British Bake Off and compete to create the best biscuits, the perfect pastries, or the most creative cakes!

You don’t have to be a star baker or even slightly proficient at baking to get involved. In fact, making delicious mistakes is often the best part of baking!

9. Learn Flower Arranging

By Gabor Juhasz on UnSplash

There are so many lovely flowers blooming in April, why not have a go at flower arranging? Get some beautiful flowers from your local market or shop along with some artificial foliage adn get creative!

If you want your blooms to last, why not have a look at some artificial flowers? There are many you can buy that look just like the real deal, just with less petal damage or pollen fall.

Have a look here at a crash course for flower arranging!

10. Romantic Chocolate Fondue

By Tamas Pap on UnSplash

There are no two ways about it. Your Easter eggs pile can take up quite a lot of room, and can often last until way into summer! If you need to clear some cupboard space, why not melt down some of your Easter eggs and create your own chocolate fondue?

Grab some marshmallows, strawberries, or other dippable treats and make a romantic evening of it? Of course, the act of melting down chocolate Easter eggs might be too difficult to bear – this activity is only for the bold!

We hope this list has provided you with many different ideas to make the most out of your Easter this year! Hopefully it won’t be too long until we can see family and friends again.
