Easter weekend: what's the plan?
Got your family Easter traditions in place? If not, you can nick one of these...
Because who doesn't enjoy a chocolate-themed festival?
"We've got pictures of the kids every year with the same little wicker baskets, now looking teeny tiny in their hulking great almost-teenage hands."
"I give Lidl chocolate lollies to my class."
"Our own Easter celebrations comprise the usual roast lamb, egg hunt and afternoon chocolate coma.
"We have the ceremonial Baking of the Left-over Chocolate Egg Victoria Sponge, which is my favourite bit."
Leftover chocolate? <surprise emoticon>
Better surely to eat it all, and then walk it off?
"We all enjoy getting out in the fresh air. No traffic jams, very cheap and enjoyable."
Of course you could always look at the garden
for the first time since last summer?
"We normally spend Easter Saturday in the garden - planting vegetables and flowers (as long as it's sunny."
Maybe even get a little spiritual sustenance
"I like to tell my children the Easter story so they don't grow up thinking it's just about chocolate!"
"There are children's church services on the Saturday and a bonnet competition in the village, so we will go to those."
Go all Take Hart over the Easter decorations with an Easter tree
"...lots of branches in a vase, decorated with salt dough decorations. We spent a day making them, a day painting them and then a day covering them in glitter. Pretty good considering a two-year-old was involved."
Or shock the rest of the family by finally getting round to that DIY you've been putting off
"We use Good Friday as a day to get lots of jobs done (last year, it was papering our son's room)."
And the really great thing about Easter? There are NO rules...
"I tell everyone they can choose one thing to put on the menu and we just go for it. One year, we had roast beef, mac and cheese, peanut butter sandwiches, tacos, fruit salad, and Yorkshire puddings."
