5 ways to make your Easter weekend more colourful
This Easter weekend, planning for a fun and festive holiday is surely on the agenda for many a parent. While coming up with a new twist to Easter classics like the requisite egg hunt can be challenging—especially if you have a brood that looks forward to something different and/or exciting each year—going the route of ‘big and bold’ isn’t the only option when it comes to the day’s activities.
Here, we present five creative and budget-friendly ideas that’ll help you pull off a fun-filled Easter weekend chock-full of colour your loved ones will appreciate.
Colourful Egg Hunt
Upgrade your basic egg hunt by giving the colours extra meaning. Assign one colour to one team and make sure to do the colouring well before the start of the race so that your teams can bond once they’ve been designated their shade. When the competition starts, sit back and watch how colourful the team-based competition can be!
Add some sweets that taste as good as they look. With HopScotch the Bunny Cake from Baskin-Robbins, you can be sure your guests will smile when you call them to the table. The adorable bunny-shaped cake will be a fan favourite for family and friends of all ages with its charming design and customizable flavours.
Tap into your artistic side with a paint night (or day) for the kids. Invite an artist via video or call in a favour from the artsy one among your friends who can offer you step-by-step instructions to create your own canvas. A fun and colourful activity, you’ll have the added bonus of sending everyone home with their own work of art. Aspiring adults looking to channel their inner van Gogh are equally welcomed to paint alongside their mini-mes.
Family YES Day
A family ‘YES day’ is key to blending quality time and limitless fun. Whether it’s an activity, meal request, or a trip outside, spend the day giving each family member one request to which all must say “yes”. Add to this the caveat that the request must include colour, be it an activity outdoors, food or clothing, and the creative and crazy ideas will be rolling in!
Rainbow of Fun
Play around with food colouring and turn simple meals and snacks into a rainbow of fun! From pancakes to muffins and colourful pasta, adding a little colour to jazz up the menu will go a long way. No matter how you choose to brighten up your Easter, adding colour and fun through play, food and activities is a surefire way to make this long weekend a memorable one.
