Easter at Home with Newbie

We know you are all stuck at home, but that doesn't mean the Easter holidays can't be fun for your children and ideas to keep them busy include an egg hunt and baking together.

Keep reading for some of Newbie’s favourite Easter activities!

Easter Egg Hunt

You can still have a cracking egg hunt at home, it just means you may have to get a little more creative with hiding places if you’re a bit limited in garden space - how about inside a cereal box or behind the sofa?

Get Crafty - Make an Easter Bonnet 

If you’ve got some craft supplies handy, you can while away the hours making a beautiful Easter bonnet for your kids to parade around the house - get springy and use pipe cleaners! There is a huge selection of Easter toppers to choose from on sites such as Hobby craft to decorate your bonnets to the max. 

Get Planting 

Easter marks the arrival of Spring after a long period of cold - so there's no better time to do some flower planting with your family. Not having a garden is no barrier to this - with many plants able to grow happily inside.

Create an indoor Easter tree 

If you can get hold of a bundle of sticks from your back garden or on a daily walk, take them home, put them in a vase and create an "Easter tree" by hanging decorations on the branches.

Get baking - Easter Nests 

If you can get hold of mini eggs, crème eggs, or any other Easter-themed confectionery at the shops, there are endless creative ways you can bake some tasty Easter treats. One of the easiest - and most popular - Easter treats which kids can help to make is chocolate Easter nests - which don't even require baking. Read below for a how-to:

200g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
85g shredded wheat, crushed
2x 100g bags of Mini Eggs
Cupcake cases 

Melt the chocolate in a small bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water - make sure the water doesn't touch the bowl or your chocolate will burn
Pour the melted chocolate over the shredded wheat and stir well to combine 
Spoon the chocolate wheat mixture into 12x cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon in the centre to create a nest shape
Finally place 3x mini eggs on top of each nest & chill in the fridge for approx. two hours until set 

Happy Easter!

With Love,
Newbie x
