How to have an amazing Easter indoors

Reader's Digest Editors 8 April 2020

This bank holiday is destined to be a little different, but here are 5 ways to make it great while staying safe

1. Decorate using household items

Remember painted eggs? Pasta art? Potato stamps? If you have children, take the indoor opportunity to teach them about the origins of Easter celebrations and let them translate what they learn into art for the house.


2. Do some seasonal baking

With hot cross buns and chocolate being the choice puddings of this time of year, why not try your hand at making your own Easter treats instead of buying them at the supermarket this year?


3. Go for a walk

Get some fresh air by going outside and spotting as much spring wildlife as you can. If you're in the country you might be lucky enough to spot some lambs and if you're in a city look out for blooming flowers and singing birds in trees.


4. Say what you're thankful for

In the true spirit of Easter and given everything going on currently, take a moment to appreciate all the great things in your life. Whether that's you family, friends, factime, daily walk, creative outlets or our NHS; it helps to stop and be thankful for what you do have, even when the world seems broken.


5. Have a drink!

After all this you certainly deserve it. From hot chocolates to whiskey and from tea to vermouth. Whatever your tipple may be, raise a glass and say a toast.
