A Guide to Easter 2020

*Ad- Gifted. All opinions are my own.
Let’s face it, Easter 2020 is not going to be like other years. I had all the plans of writing this and encouraging big family meet ups and trips to the park with friends. This of course cannot be the case, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try and make the best of the situation and still try and make it really good and magical for the little one’s be it in your home or garden. So, I have rethought my ideas and adapted them to make sure the suggestions I am making stay in line with the Covid-19 guidelines but including fun to be had. So, here is my guide to Easter 2020.

Fun, practical carry bag for books, kit, shopping and more! Kids (and adults!) can enjoy adding their own colours to the hand-drawn world map scene with the included set of wash-out pens. When they’re ready for a new colour scheme, pen ink disappears completely in the machine – endless fun! Our tote bags also look great just as they are – making perfect adult shoppers too.
In heavy 100% cotton canvas, it’s sturdy and has a pocket tucked inside to hold the included set of 10 wash-out pens. The colour and carry world map tote bag is a perfect Easter activity!
The HARIBO Bunny ‘n’ Friends gift box makes a perfect Easter gift, containing cute bunny, sheep and chick shaped sweets all wrapped up in a bunny shaped gift box. Alternatively, HARIBO Chick ‘n’ Mix is a cute gift box filled with TangfastChicks, Starmix’s favourite Fried Egg, Jelly Bunnies and Spring Time Friends – tweet, tweet!

Be it casual dinners or formal occasions, this linen tablecloth goes well with every mood and setting.

The Isle of Wight Distillery has created a vibrant variation of it’s excellent Mermaid Gin, boasting a delightfully sweet flavour profile and rosy hue thanks to an infusion of Island strawberries! This is honestly one of the nicest gins I have ever had, and I have tried quite a few. I am loving pairing this with Fever Tree Regular Tonic or their Aromatic and a wedge of lemon and some ice for the perfect afternoon drink… As it’s a holiday I may even have more than one throughout Easter day!
Guylian, the world’s favourite Belgian chocolatier, is making Easter extra special this year with a great range of Easter Eggs for everyone to enjoy.

7 Ate 9 is a quick-playing card game in everyone wants to rid themselves of cards as quickly as possible — but you can’t play just any card you want! Each card features a large numeral (1-10) as well as a smaller numeral in the corner (±1, ±2, or ±3).

To play, place one card face down in the center of the table, deal the remaining cards out evenly among all the players, then reveal the central card. Players race to add the next card to the central pile. A card with a large 5 and a ±2 in its corner, for example, could be covered by either a 3 or a 7 (since 5-2=3 and 5+2=7). The first player to get rid of all their cards wins.
