Easter is usually buzzing with outdoor egg hunts, fun and family events over the long weekend, but this is not going to be an ordinary one due to the COVID 19 pandemic. All the fun and excitement is now left for us to create ourselves! So in our usual DIY spirit, to help families and children celebrate a memorable Easter during these stay at home times, we’ve put together twelve great ideas to make your Easter as joyful as it can be!
Our foremost priority is ensuring that children and families stay safe and healthy, so all activities are limited to indoor ones. All the projects are also easy to do and the supplies used are items you probably already have at home, so no need to go outside to buy any more.
