  1. Make Easter cards and send them to family or friends you can’t visit right now.
  2. Design your own Easter Egg
  3. Bake Easter cookies or Easter chocolate nests (I have added a lovely recipe below!)

  6. Go on a scavenger hunt in your house or garden.
  7. Make fingerprint bunnies using paint and colours.
  8. Have a teddy bear’s picnic in your garden.
  9. Make an Easter Newsletter to tell family and friends all your news.
