Easter is a few sleeps away.
While families can’t host their traditional Easter egg hunts because of social distancing guidelines, West Ryde Dental Clinic is coming up with a unique way for people to enjoy the holiday
Like most things right now, Easter celebrations are not going to look the same this year.
Here are a few ideas for your Easter celebration:
You can boil eggs and use food dye or even food from your own pantry (like beets, turmeric or onion skins) to create multicoloured eggs for Easter.
Have an indoor Easter egg hunt
Hide eggs in the dryer, under your bed or in the cabinet (make sure they don’t fall and crack). Then watch your loved ones look around for them.
Do Easter-themed arts and crafts
Make paper bunnies or craft flowers out of cardboard; the possibilities are endless.
Watch Easter-themed movies
Whether you choose the fun route with a film like “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” or “Hop” or opt for deeper fare like “The Passion of the Christ,” “The Robe” or “Ben-Hur,” an Easter screening is a safe and fun way to acknowledge the holiday.
Dress up! Wear your Sunday best
Brush your hair and wear something sparkly for the day, and let the kids choose their own special outfit.
Cook an Easter meal
If the bare grocery store shelves aren’t an obstacle, buy the materials to cook your favourite holiday dinner.
Whip up some Easter-themed snacks
Devilled eggs, cookies or even brownies will be a sweet way to celebrate Easter indoors.
See your family and friends virtually
Thanks to video apps like FaceTime, Google Hangouts and Messenger Video, you can still share your Easter lunch or dinner with your nearest and dearest.
This season’s Easter celebrations may not resemble those from years past, but at West Ryde Dental Clinic, we believe it can still be an opportunity to do something special with the people you love the most.
