We don’t need to tell you that Easter this year would be better held in your own homes. Instead, we would like to present three ideas that will make your Easter at home something truly special. Have fun doing handicrafts, giving presents and feasting!
Indoor Easter nest hiding places
For those who have children, one thing is clear: the Easter Bunny is coming for sure! Because also indoors there are sooo many great hiding places:
+ For beginner bunnies: behind the curtain, under a carpet, in the shower
++ For experienced hiders: in the washing machine, behind the TV, under the sink
+++ For “old hands” in the egg hunt: behind the heater (don’t forget to switch off!), in the sock drawer, between the jackets in the wardrobe (e.g. hanging in a cotton bag)
Even if you don’t have children, you should once again indulge in the fun of an Easter egg hunt. It doesn’t always have to be an Easter basket, every little present is a joy. If you would like to order a small gift online, keep in mind that your local shops might also offer online delivery.
Tip for people living alone: Send an Easter package with a handwritten letter to your loved ones or simply put a small basket on the doormat for your neighbours. After all, giving presents is always a pleasure, not only for the receiver!
I want it to be special for Easter! How about pancakes. We never have time for pancakes anyway. But the dough is so simple and most likely you already have all the ingredients at home:
For 10 pancakes:
- 200g flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 30g sugar
- 150g yoghurt or soy yoghurt
- 50ml whole milk or soy milk
- 50ml sparkling water
- Butter or oil for the pan
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, add in a second bowl yoghurt, milk and water. Combine the contents of both bowls and mix to an airy dough, adding some more sparkling water if necessary. Allow the dough to swell for about 5 minutes and then bake pancakes in a coated pan until they are golden brown on both sides.
Nobody can resist a waffle tower with fresh fruit and maple syrup, whoever likes can also arrange the pancakes in an easterly style.
Those who live alone should also make themselves a great breakfast at least on Easter Sunday. Feelings of happiness are a given and you will have a little holiday moment at home. Then simply invite friends and family via Skype, Whatsapp or Facebook Video Call.
Handcrafting for Easter
To blow out and paint eggs would be the classic, but why not try something new? We’re trying salt dough this year for Easter! It is very easy to make and we already have these ingredients at home:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of salt
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- & 1 cup of water
Mix all the ingredients into a dough, that’s it! 🙂
From colourful and flowery ornaments for the Easter bouquet to new equipment for the dolls’ kitchen – there are no limits to creativity! If you think that salt dough crafting is only for children, you are welcome to try the egg cups in ceramic look.
