Spring is here and with lockdown restrictions in England lifting (allowing up to six people or two households in our gardens), we can see the Easter weekend becoming a bit more, shall we say it – FUN!
With that in mind let’s make the most of this Bank Holiday weekend and create some everlasting memories with family and friends with the help of our essential retailers at the Meridian Shopping Centre.
First off, why not create a joyful ambience whether it’s indoors with your bubble or outdoors with your chosen six. Wilko’s have some great kitchenware and garden accessories for the spring garden party element. Their range of Easter-themed decorations will delight the children and turn your garden or home into your very own Peter Rabbit wonderland! We are loving Country Living’s Easter Tree DIY ideas on how to create the most spectacular table centrepiece and Bargain Buys have a variety of decorations to use.
Who doesn’t love Easter eggs?! And now there is something for everyone! From the budget eggs such as Bargain Buys Easter Chick Shells – great for hiding small treats inside, to the more extravagant eggs like WHSmith’s Lindt Bunny – perfect for that special someone, or the vegan-friendly eggs available at Holland & Barrett, you won’t be short for choice. If there is any leftover chocolate why not get the children in the kitchen by making these Chocolate Easter Nests, a delicious recipe from Holland & Barrett.
Finally, it can’t be Easter without the traditional egg hunt, can it?! To create an Easter trail, start with an egg hunt sign such as this one from Wilko’s and add a path with these super cute bunny feet from Bargain Buys. Little kids and big kids (and by big kids, we’re talking about us adults!), will have a barrel of laughs wearing their WHSmith bunny ears and racing to see who can find the most eggs, Holland & Barrett have some tasty mini eggs that are vegan friendly and perfect to make the egg hunt a little bit more challenging. For some other fun activities print our bespoke Easter colouring sheets or have a go at our Easter Egg Maze, both of which will certainly keep the little ones entertained!
