As we are all stuck at home due to the lockdown, we have come up with a few ideas to help you celebrate Easter and enjoy some different activities.

*Easter celebrations

Although you cannot visit loved ones at the moment, you can get family members from different households involved in a virtual egg hunt. Adults can hide eggs around their own houses, while children try to spot them via a video tour of the house.

Help to spread the Easter cheer to your neighbours by creating themed window decorations.

If you need a little inspiration, Plan Bee is offering free templates for Easter egg baskets, eggs and more.
