We try and make Easter as special as Christmas in our house and we look forward to it almost as much.
This year it looks as though our Easter Holidays will be very different. With everyone anxious about the current Corona virus outbreak I am planning ahead so the children can still enjoy as many of our Easter traditions as possible.
Luckily I have enough decorations from previous years and I have been buying little Easter treats since they appeared in the shops to spread the cost. I have purchased our final baking ingredients this week so hopefully we are as ready as we can be for an indoors only Easter if necessary.
The first tradition I want to share is my favourite. The Elve’s Christmas North Pole Breakfast was so popular with the kids that a few years ago the Easter Bunny decided to get in on the action and surprised the kids with an Easter Bunny Breakfast. This is now eagerly awaited each year.
We have a printed menu, crackers and Easter tableware to compliment the Easter treats on offer all set up in the night / early morning so it is a surprise when the kids come downstairs in the morning.
We usually have a menu similar to the following foods
Nesquick bunny cereal
Chocolate pop tarts
Easter Bunny and chick marshmallows
Easter shaped crumpets
Hot cross buns
This is a lovely way to start the Easter holidays or Easter weekend and is just one of our Easter traditions that make it a magical occasion.
As Easter gets closer I will be sharing our other Easter traditions, they may be adapted or scaled back versions this year but I will continue to try and keep the magic and have something to look forward to in these uncertain times.
