With staying at home the only option during the coronavirus restrictions, we’ve picked out our top five ideas for making the Easter holidays fun for all the family.

Garden egg hunt

There’s no better way to combine family Easter fun and your daily exercise routine than through some chocolate-incentivised fun! Challenge your kids to design and then cut out a series of oval egg shapes on card before hiding them throughout your home and garden. Once the kiddies have raced around and found all of their funky designs, they can be rewarded with chocolate eggs at the end. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration for Easter egg designs. If spending Easter in your new home and garden sounds like a great idea, read to the bottom to see how it can happen for you.

Family day trips

A huge range of attractions for all ages have made the quick transition online. You can see giraffes up close and personal during Chester Zoo’s Virtual Zoo Days, take a virtual stroll at Hidcote Manor Gardens, or find out where the Queen eats her eggs through a tour of Buckingham Palace. The kids can learn all about the science of rockets on the National Space Centre’s YouTube channel and London’s famous Science Museum has loads of games, puzzles and apps to entertain the whole family. If you’re impressed with the range of things you can do online, why not take a virtual tour of our beautiful show homes?

Daily activity for all

Do a quick search of local gym providers and dance workshops on social media and you’ll find that many have started interactive online classes geared towards getting the whole family up and active. Check out Body Coach Joe Wicks and his 9am weekday sessions ‘PE with Joe’ which have attracted more than 2 million subscribers whilst raising money for the NHS. While getting yourself fit, get yourself mortgage fit and make a new home happen…

Lose yourself in film

The cinemas may be closed but Universal Studios has announced it is releasing new movies online through popular on-demand services such as Amazon and Sky; meaning you can get the popcorn ready and settle down with a good film. If stories are more your thing, you’ll find a wide range of classic children’s books being streamed on Google or Facebook or through this free resource. Once your film marathon is over, why not view our brochures and really let your imagination take over as you see yourself in your new home?

Bring the outdoors in

The Scouts have pulled together some inspired home activities to bring the great outdoors into your living room – everything from animal collages, to craft activities, to photography skills. And continuing the outdoor theme, wildlife expert Steve Backshall is live streaming a Wildlife School lesson every Wednesday. Call, email, or video chat our friendly team to discover how you can make your new home complete with garden, plants and wildlife a reality.
