Easter Weekend Fun

Spring is here and with lockdown restrictions in England lifting (allowing up to six people or two households in our gardens), we can see the Easter weekend becoming a bit more, shall we say it – FUN!

With that in mind let’s make the most of this Bank Holiday weekend and create some everlasting memories with family and friends with the help of the essential retailers at Cannon Park.

First off, why not create a joyful ambience whether it’s indoors with your bubble or outdoors with your chosen six. Wilko’s have some great kitchenware and garden accessories for the spring garden party element. Their range of Easter-themed decorations will delight the children and turn your garden or home into your very own Peter Rabbit wonderland! We are loving Country Living’s Easter Tree DIY ideas on how to create the most spectacular table centrepiece and Bargain Buys have a variety of decorations to use.

Prepare your Easter feast with this recipe for mouth-watering spiced slow-roasted lamb shoulder by Tesco, and Iceland’s fluffy and delicious hot cross buns are a lovely treat for afternoon tea. Get the children in the kitchen by making Holland & Barrett’s Chocolate Easter Nests with leftover Easter egg chocolate – if there is any!  These will be the perfect dessert after your family meal!

Finally, it can’t be Easter without the traditional egg hunt, can it?! To create an Easter trail, start with an egg hunt sign such as this one from Wilko’s and add a path with these super cute bunny feet from Bargain Buys. Little kids and big kids (and by big kids, we’re talking about us adults!), will have a barrel of laughs to see who can find the most eggs, Holland & Barrett have some tasty mini eggs that are vegan friendly and perfect to make the egg hunt a little bit more challenging. You could also hold a competition for the best Easter bonnet, Iceland has a fantastic make-your-own bonnet kit that comes with a variety of accessories. For some other activities print our bespoke Easter colouring sheets and have a go at our Easter maze, both of which will certainly keep the little ones entertained!
