How to have a great Easter in self-isolation with kids

10th April, 2020

With social distancing rules in place we face a much different Easter this year. There are no big family gatherings or going away for the weekend, as we’re all asked to stay in our homes and minimise contact with others. Given kids generally look forward to this time of year (particularly the chocolate!), why not try to maintain as many of the traditions that you can, or alternatively start new ones. Embrace the Easter egg hunt, take a ‘trip’ and still partake in a gorgeous family lunch (albeit virtually), and enjoy this time of year.

Have a virtual family Easter lunch

Just because we can’t enjoy big family gatherings right now doesn’t mean you can’t still maintain the tradition of having Easter lunch with family. Simply co-ordinate a set time to sit down for a meal, pop everyone on a video call and have the next best thing to having everyone sitting around the table.

Arrange an Easter egg hunt

There’s definitely no rule saying you can’t do Easter egg hunts so go ahead and embrace this tradition. Stock up on plenty of eggs, arm the kids with their own baskets and set them loose. Note: if you find really good hiding spots this could keep them occupied for awhile…

Get baking

Join the rest of the world in totally and utterly embracing all things baking right now. There are endless recipes to try, particularly with kids, but if you’re going to maintain the Easter spirit why not try baking your own hot cross buns?

Arts and crafts

A quick Google search will unearth more than enough craft projects to keep the kids entertained for the long weekend. From bunny hats to baskets and baby chicks, you’ll have more than enough to occupy the little ones in your life, and also inject a little extra Easter spirit into your home.

Go indoor camping

If you can’t go away over Easter as you usually would, why not go on a ‘trip’ anyway? The novelty factor of being able to sleep somewhere different is something we all enjoy so why not just set up camp in the backyard or indoors. Bring plenty of snacks, watch movies and do something to break up your daily routine. This is one activity kids will particularly enjoy.

Set up an indoor picnic

What kid doesn’t love a picnic? Prepare a picnic lunch, pop a rug in the living room or outdoors and enjoy a picnic as you normally would, but with the convenience of not actually having to leave your home.


My week on Instagram

21st April, 2019

We decided to make the most of the long weekend and get out of Sydney and drive down to our family farm to spend the Easter break. It’s always nice to get out of town for a bit and wind down in the country for a few days. Also the girls always really like spending time with their cousins and getting to play outdoors and run around. Being able to recharge our batteries means we come back ready to tackle the week ahead.

I hope you’re all having a fantastic Easter holiday!

What I Wore: Easter Time

24th March, 2018

I’m so looking forward to the Easter long weekend next week. I love being able to hang out with my family, especially Luke and the girls and just enjoy spending time together relaxing. And hey, it’s also a good excuse to enjoy an Easter egg or two!

It’s always nice to dress the girls up a bit during this time, especially when they’re off on an Easter egg hunt as it makes for such cute photos to look back on. I wanted to go all pink this year with the girls’ outfits and it was Seed Heritage to the rescue. They had so much pink to choose from that it was actually hard to narrow it down to just two looks. In the end I settled on the below ensembles as I love the cute bunny motif on Grace‘s dress and the pom poms on Sophia‘s jumper. Also it was pretty much mandatory that we incorporate a tutu in the mix.

As for my look, I thought red would make a great contrasting shade to the girls’ pink outfits. I’ve found grey is always such a good colour to pair with red so finding these jeans at Seed was a good find. Plus the outfit is so comfortable so it’s ideal for running after two excited and active little girls who have been enjoying a few chocolate eggs!
