Celebrate Easter at home or virtually this year with family traditions like decorating eggs, creating an egg hunt in your backyard and dressing in your best (and fanciest!) outfits.

While activities are changed for social distancing purposes, families can have an excellent time with a little creativity.

There’s much to do this Easter, so hop to it with the following ideas to help make this holiday special for you and your kids.

Here are a few ideas from your Wantirna South dentist:

#1. Decorate eggs

You can boil eggs and use food dye or even food from your own pantry (like beets, turmeric or onion skins) to create multicoloured eggs for Easter.

#2. Have an indoor Easter egg hunt

Hide eggs in the dryer, under your bed or in the cabinet (make sure they don’t fall and crack). Then watch your loved ones look around for them.

#3. Do Easter-themed arts and crafts

Make paper bunnies or craft flowers out of cardboard; the possibilities are endless.

#4. Watch Easter-themed movies

Whether you choose the fun route with a film like “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” or “Hop” or opt for deeper fare like “The Passion of the Christ,” “The Robe” or “Ben-Hur,” an Easter screening is a safe and fun way to acknowledge the holiday.

#5. Dress up! Wear your Sunday best

Brush your hair and wear something sparkly for the day, and let the kids choose their own special outfit.

#6. Cook an Easter meal

If the bare grocery store shelves aren’t an obstacle, buy the materials to cook your favourite holiday dinner.

#7. Whip up some Easter-themed snacks

Devilled eggs, cookies or even brownies will be a sweet way to celebrate Easter indoors.

#8. See your family and friends virtually

Thanks to video apps like FaceTime, Google Hangouts and Messenger Video, you can still share your Easter lunch or dinner with your nearest and dearest.

This season’s Easter celebrations may not resemble those from years past, but at Dr Sachdeva’s dental clinic, we believe it can still be an opportunity to do something special with the people you love the most.
