So, Easter is normally a lovely holiday for us all. Spent in the sun, doing fun things with the family, maybe having picnics in the park or BBQ's. Of course, this year is very different BUT I am hoping I can give you some ideas and encourage you to think outside the box & still celebrate.
We all love a good baking session. Get into the Easter mood with easy Easter bakes such as Easter nest. BBC's Good Food recipe is a great & easy recipe to use.
Prep: 25 mins Cook: 8 mins Plus chilling

1.Melt the chocolate in a small bowl placed over a pan of barely simmering water. Pour the chocolate over the shredded wheat and stir well to combine.
2. Spoon the chocolate wheat into 12 cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon in the centre to create a nest shape. Place 3 mini chocolate eggs on top of each nest. Chill the nests in the fridge for 2 hrs until set.

3. Video Call
Arrange a time to all jump on a call. Share memories and talk about your get together when this storm passes. Allow all your family members to contribute and come up with a plan of action.
4. Create a vison board.
Use old magazines, and newspapers to create your dream boards so you know where and in what direction you want to go in once this storm passes. Making them bright and colourful to put up in your room to help you keep focused.

Allow your children to paint their hard boiled eggs. Allow them to dry over-night then hide them around the house for the children to find. Whoever finds more eggs wins a prize of your choice.

Make sandwiches, cakes, scones, get the chocolate out, create food that is easy to make and that the children can help with too.
