While Easter provides the perfect excuse to indulge in loads of chocolate, it’s also a time of joy, renewal and family. So, we’ve rounded up a basket-full of egg-cellent ideas for an unforgettable Easter break, all on a budget.
Get closer to nature
With spring in full swing, there’s no better time to bring the whole family together for some fun and nature filled discoveries. From enchanted woodlands to magical trails, unleash your inner explorer with the National Trust’s Cadbury Easter Egg hunts. With over 250 hunts to choose from and tickets available for as little as £2.50, you can enjoy a wild and wondrous Easter for less. Just hop over to the website for more details.
There’s nothing like a bit of arts and crafts with your little ones to get you in the Easter spirit. From egg painting to bonnet decorating, kick off the spring festivities with a splash of colour and creativity. There are a (free) range of workshops and demonstrations at your fingertips. Simply head over to Hobbycraft, sign up, and they’ll take care of the rest!
Ready, steady, bake!
Dust off your mixing spoon and get your rolling pins at the ready for some all-time favourite Easter treats. Iced biscuits are a great option but all HAIL the ultimate hot-cross bun. Nothing screams Easter quite like family, melted butter and mucky kitchens.
But for those looking to avoid the kitchen clean up, GAIL’s bakeries are running free gingerbread and decorating classes for kids during Easter. To book a place, call your local GAIL’s.
There is no need to head to Spain to get away from the rain this month. Whether you’re up for getting out and about in the Peak District or heading to the sandy beaches of Cornwall, a purse- friendly trip is a wonderful way to keep the boredom at bay.
