Fun Easter Activities to Try in 2021

So far this year, we’ve not really been able to do many of the things we love to do. As a family, that may have led you to try a few new activities.

So with the long Easter weekend approaching, we wanted to give you a few ideas as to what might be worth having a go at with the family.

Let’s face it, we’ve been stuck inside a lot recently. So here are 5 ideas for you and the family this Easter weekend.


Create some Chocolate Easter Nests

A great idea this Easter is to create some chocolate treats using your baking expertise. Some chocolate nests are a quick and simple way to make something that is creative, fitting for the Easter occasion and utterly delicious.

This recipe from the BBC is a good one, while you can pick up tasty chocolate options and handy baking cases at Poundstretcher.


Try something crafty

Activities such as decorating your own Easter egg is an excellent way to help get the creative juices flowing while making your own Easter decorations can help turn your home into a great Easter space this year. And if you want to buy some Easter decorations instead, this 6 pack of Easter chicks can help!


Send some Easter Cards

With everybody not having seen as many of their friends and family as they would have liked over the past 12 months, an Easter card is a lovely gesture that can bring a smile to somebody’s face.

We sell floral Easter cards for you to buy, while you can also buy packets of decorate your own Easter card sets.


Get the Board Games Out

With 4 whole days of leisure time available over the Easter weekend, a great idea is to play some board games and enjoy some quality time together.

For those with a love of board games, you may well have a good collection already. Try not to get too competitive! The last thing you want over Easter is confrontation!

But if you need a few new board games or puzzles to try, then take a look through Poundstretcher’s excellent range available in stores. We have many great products to try, so treat yourself and the family to something exciting.


Host an Easter Egg Hunt

An Easter Egg hunt is a lot of fun for all the family, with Easter treats being placed around the home or garden being a great way to celebrate come the Easter weekend.

We love an Easter Egg hunt here at Poundstretcher - so much so that we’ve put together a downloadable Easter Egg hunt game for you and the family to try!

You can also buy Easter masks, bunny feet and bunny paw items to help turn your home into a really Easter-centric space and take the hunt to new levels!
