Looking for things to do this Easter? I’ve got 10 on my list here!


I get a lot of questions, asking what do Leanora and I do during this pandemic, weekends and during the half term. The answer is everything and anything.

We’ve become a bit of gamers in my household, ever since I got Leanora the Nintendo switch, we’ve been getting crafty and building our own personal heaven on Animal Crossing to something a little bit more scary Luigi Mansions. I’ve got so bad, I’ve been sneakily playing it when Leanora’s gone to bed. I have to admit, we even play friends online, which is a great way of keeping in touch and spending socially distanced time together, a great console for family and friends I can recommend it enough.

With it being Easter we’ve been making some tasty treats, such as our Lemon and Pistachio cake and our adorable bunny biscuits, both never last very long in our house. Being able to bake together as a family brings us closer together, well until L gets flour everywhere and blames poor Milo!

We are a family who loves to create and design, so this Easter we decided instead of buying cards for our friends and family, we decided to roll our sleeves up, get the glue, googley eyes and scissors out and a few bottles of glitter and design our own. This adds a bit more of a personal touch, plus it’s a lot of fun, me I get really stuck in probably more than I should, it certainly brings out my inner child and imagination.

I don’t know what is up with kids, but they are always drawing on themselves, Leanora drew a little heart and when questioned she thought it was a good idea, as I had a tattoo so why not her! Well where do I begin......girl your 6 haha! But whilst she has been rejected to ever mark her body, I thought what not make an activity out of it and let’s draw, on paper and who can design the best picture. We found some really cool tattoo fonts online on the fonts bundle website.

Still having our creative hats on we decided a bit of tie dye was in order, a few white T-shirt’s looking a little old we decided to bring them back to life and add a little colour to our tees.

Everyone’s favourite game MONOPOLY I mean every household has this game am I right! Now Leanora being of an age, I bought the Junior Monopoly and I’ve never had so much fun, only a few tears and tantrums, which pretty much came from me as Leanora kicked my butt at it! Maybe Ludo is in order..

With our favourite bookstore still closed, has not stopped us from reading. We’ve brought a tonne of books and what better way to expand our minds than with some really great literature.

Now that we can meet up with friends and family out doors, we’ve been taking advantage of this dry weather, grabbing coffee and hot chocolate and heading out for a stroll, which is so beautiful due to all the cherry blossoms trees having bloomed.

Every week, we get our main and pedis on! Nothing quite like a day of pampering, this weeks shade of nails is green.

We love a movie night, we grab the duvet all our fave snacks then kick back, Netflix and chill and watch a movie, we just watched Raya and the Last Dragon, it was absolutely excellent, so much so we’ve watched like 5 times already.

There you go folks, are top 10 things to do this Easter.
