Eco activities to do at home this Easter

Easter is around the corner, and although it may be different to what you had planned, you can still enjoy the long weekend from the comfort of your own home.

If you’re looking for inspiration on what to do with the kids, then read on. We hope it helps spark some ideas!

Enjoy an Easter Egg hunt

Hide your favourite sweet treats (or better still – make your own vegan Easter eggs) and hide them around your home and garden. If your kids are a bit older, why not make it into a treasure hunt leaving clues on where you can find the next egg? If you’re hiding them all in the same room or area of the home, you could also set up your phone to record a time-lapse video for great family memories.

Have a picnic

You don’t need to go out to have a picnic, the front room or your garden can also provide the perfect spot – depending on the weather! Create a super special lunch with whatever you can find in the cupboards, and don’t skim on the aesthetics – triangle sandwiches are a must! If you have a picnic blanket – or any blanket – and a picnic hamper, make sure to use them for that authentic picnic feeling.

Create a fancy-dress box

If you’re planning on clearing out your wardrobe, put some bits aside for the kids to take a look through and put together a whole new fancy dress box, freshened up with our Lavender Laundry Liquid.

As well as preventing unwanted clothes from ending up in landfill, this idea also saves you spending money on expensive – and often highly flammable and plastic-based – fancy dress outfits in the future.

Ready, steady, bake!

Easter brings a whole range of new tasty treats to bake with the family. From a classic vegan Easter Simnel cake, to tasty dark chocolate hot-cross buns there’s a whole host of sweet treats to make over the bank holiday. Or why not turn it into a little competition and each decorate one of these cookies?

Get out in the garden

If the weather’s nice, there’s plenty to keep the family occupied in the garden.

Children could unleash their green fingers by planting some seeds and watching them grow. You could also set a challenge to take a photo of a number of different things you can spot such as different birds or wildlife, plants and flowers.

If it’s the first time you’ve got out in the garden this year, give it spruce up with our Home and Garden Sanitiser – it’s great for cleaning decking and patios.
