With the Easter break coming up fast, it’s time to start planning for the festivities! Easter is always a great time to get all the family together, play games and eat chocolate. At Holiday Resort Unity, there’s loads to enjoy at the resort but why not arrange your own Easter games or bake some goodies? We’re no stranger to Easter fun so here’s some great ideas to get all your family and friends involved with.
Make your own Easter eggs
If you’re a keen baker, then why not make your own Easter eggs? It’s a lot easier than you think, and is a great one to get the kids to help out with, although always make sure they’re supervised. You’ll need an egg mould (you can buy these in most craft shops), as well as lots of chocolate! You’ll need to melt the chocolate down using a bain-marie and then carefully pour it into the moulds, you can read the full chocolate Easter egg recipe here. Once you’ve got your basic Easter egg shape, it’s time to decorate! Use coloured icing or sprinkles to make every Easter egg look different for a varied bunch to suit everyone. Lastly, use ribbons or coloured foil to wrap them up and keep them fresh. They make great Easter gifts too, and are ideal for an Easter egg hunt…
Easter Egg Hunt
Probably our favourite Easter game is a traditional Easter egg hunt! Get all the kids involved with the promise of exciting treats. To get this organised, you’ll need to establish a suitable area, maybe in a large garden or safe area of the resort, to hide the eggs around. Keep the children enticed with clues hidden around too divulging the next location of the chocolate.
For those who aren’t fans of chocolate, there’s a huge range of other goodies you can make too so fear not! This Mary Berry Easter biscuit recipe makes a more traditional treat and is just as easy, only taking half an hour to prepare. You’ll need butter, sugar, flour, milk, lemon and currants to make a dough. Once kneaded, pop in the oven for half an hour and brush with egg glazing and caster sugar before putting them back in the oven to finish them off. They can last for up to 3 days too so be sure to make enough for everyone to enjoy.
Sun out? Then it’s time for beach games with the family! Nothing beats a long walk on the beach so go prepared with a bucket and spade, Frisbee and kite to get all the kids energised. Or if you’ve not got your beach supplies with you, nothing beats a race along the beach to see who can get into the sea first. Improvise with musical towels (instead of chairs) or hold your own sand art competition with an ice cream for the artistic winner.
Egg and spoon race
Another children’s classic is an egg and spoon race. Mark out the start and finish line by holding ribbon or draw a chalk line so the kids know where they’re heading. Next all you need to do is equip the kids with their egg and spoon! Hold relay races where the kids need to work in teams to pass their egg along to the finish line and don’t be afraid to include the grown-ups in this game too, you’d be surprised who the winners are!
