Create an Easter Tree


Christmas is an easy holiday for the kids to understand because you put up the tree and then count down for Santa. If you feel that Easter seems to lack the same punchy, iconic way to launch the celebration an Easter Tree is for you! From a fancy store bought timber tree to a gorgeous branch you find outside decorate your Easter tree with the kids and display it pride of place. Local discount stores have cute, affordable decorations or you can craft your own together! Bonus, your Easter Tree can be the centrepiece for your family Easter lunch! A gorgeous new tradition to continue for years to come.

There’s stacks of examples of Pinterest but this little rabbit motif made with a hand is perfect for a fun project now and something to slip into the baby book as a keepsake for later on. Easy to make and don’t forget to pop the date on so you know what year it was made!

Make (or buy) bunting and decorate the home!

Bunting is a festive way to add some more Easter fun to your home. Older kids can try to make their own – we love this idea which gets that on-trend ombre look using paint colour sample cards. If you aren’t up to making your own you can buy Easter bunting very cheaply and the kids will as much enjoy the installation as they would have the actual making. And, bonus, there’s much, much less mess!
