1. Go on an Easter Egg Hunt at a Local Farm
We are a working farm here at Athelington, and know the joys involved with new animals this time of year. Although we cannot allow access to ours, we have some great nearby farms that you can visit to search for hidden eggs, enjoy a tractor trailer ride, cuddle bunnies and even feed some lambs.

And when you’re done, make sure you don’t miss your chance to meet the Easter Bunny.
Most importantly, don’t forget to take some photos and share them on our Facebook or Instagram page. We love feedback, reviews and seeing what adventures our guests have been on.
2. Go for a Picnic in the Park
Head to a local park with your friends or family for a day of fun. April is the weather where you layer up clothes for warmth but can shut your eyes to the welcoming sunshine. It’s glorious. You can take a relaxing stroll through the park and spot some interesting wildlife. Or, spread out some picnic blankets out, to sit and enjoy some tasty treats. Why not bring along all those messy craft materials too. Afterall, it’s ok to make mess outside and not worry about the carpets and walls being decorated by fingerprints.
Face paints would be a great idea, transforming yourself or a little one into your favourite animals. We have a few nice green spaces from us and all our surrounding small villages have some lovely parks and playgrounds, like Worlingworth, Stradbroke and Laxfield.

3. Bake Easter-themed Treats
The great thing about baking treats is that it can be done from the comfort of your home and with your favourite people. If you’re craving bread, why not make the bread the shape of a bunny? How about some cute baby chick cupcakes? Whatever you choose, adding some Easter-inspired decorations like sprinkles and mini-eggs will make them even more fun. So, get ready to grab your apron and get baking!
4. Decorate Your Home Easter-style
Get into the spirit of the holiday by decorating your home for you and your loved ones to enjoy. You could hang pastel-coloured streamers, display cute Easter bunny ornaments, or put up some Easter-themed paintings. In our household, we are particularly fond of making footprints like bunnies, handprints like chicks and fingerprints like eggs!
5. Create Homemade Easter Themed Gifts
A great way to share the Easter spirit is to give a homemade gift to a loved one. Grandparents, love these little treasures and creations! Perhaps share some of those baked treats or turn those arty pictures into an Easter card.
