5 Family Easter Activities For Under £20

Hey Lovelies!

Should you have little ones, by week two of the Easter holidays you will probably be going slightly mad. If climbing the walls trying to find something for your children to do (that does not continually break the bank) sound familiar – don’t panic! Here are some excellent ideas for things to do, ensuring Easter break is fun.

1.Geocaching: Cost: Totally FREE. Location: Anywhere. www.geocaching.com

For those of you who aren’t in the know, Geocaching is like a universal treasure hunt. People hide short messages or their names on a piece of rolled up paper in all sorts of locations, such as under benches, at churches and so forth. Simply add the app, sign up and follow the clues. Although the treasure isn’t awesome, the process of going out and searching is a great way to bond, have fun and get some exercise – the best bit being it’s absolutely free to do, and your children will love it!

2.Cadburys & National Trust Easter Egg Hunt, Prices Depend on Location, (Over 260 Hunts Across England, Wales and N. Ireland), www.nationaltrust.org.uk

Combine fun facts about wildlife, solve clues and puzzles and grab yourself an egg! The National Trust and Cadbury’s have teamed up this Easter and are offering various nature trails brimming with adventure, of which end with the discovery of a yummy chocolate egg! The prices are generally quite affordable (£20 for a family on average, which includes the egg hunt price £2 and the cost of admission). For this you can enjoy an entire day of adventure. Should your little ones still appear to have masses of energy following the hunt, many places will also offer an array of activities and games – so there is no chance you can’t all get a good night’s sleep (and the grown-ups can enjoy a lie-in)! N.b: Different locations will have varying admission prices.

3.Trampoline Park: Approximately £7 Per Child, Various Locations, www.jumpwarriors.co.uk

Let your little ones jump off some steam while you sit in the viewing bay with a latte and your fave magazine. Some of best memories from my childhood are ones when my nan took me to the local trampoline park. These places have come on leaps and bounds since then (pardon the pun) and is one of the best past-times for my son. You can’t go wrong!

4.The Movies

This is always a great way to spend a rainy afternoon – and I do believe the next Marvel film, Endgame (starring a man who actually is perfect, Chris Hemsworth) is soon to be released. However, i think it isn’t out until 25th of April. Still, in the meantime there are some funny movies for all of the family to watch. Surely nothing will be as bad as The Emoji movie!

5.Create Your Own Easter Egg Hunt, Cost: How Much You Spend on The Eggs – Lidl’s?

Get your children involved in creating an Easter egg hunt. Whilst you are thinking up your Easter hunt clues, let your child do their own. This allows them to get totally creative, involved in something fun – and most importantly – off the Xbox!

Do you have any Easter activity ideas to share, or have you done any of these? I would love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a message in the comments below – and have a fantastic Easter people xx

Discover The Best Stocking Fillers For All The Family

Hey Lovelies!

Well, it’s almost Friday again (yay), but that does mean we have somehow found ourselves less than 3 weeks to Christmas. Yikes! Fear not, I have compiled a list of some awesome Christmas stocking filler gifts for all the family, of which are certain to make everyone’s Christmas morning even more special.

1.For Your Little Brother, Nephew Or Son: Mini Volcano Lamp, £14.99, prezzybox.com

Like most other 8-year-old boys, my lad absolutely LOVES volcanoes – so this would be a super-hot gift for him (excuse the pun). This unique lava lamp actually spews out ‘lava beads’ into the lamp, thus creating the red glow of an erupting volcano. Awesome.

2.For The Child At University: Mug Cakes, £7.99, prezzybox.com

OK, so we aren’t expecting them to mirror the Bake Off but alternating from burnt beans on toast and pasta would be a welcome change. Unlike other recipe books, this is likely to actually be used – fast and easy cakes that take zero effort (perfect for the uni student). All you need to do is plonk the ingredients in a mug and place in the microwave. Et Voila!

3.For Your Nan: Engraved Silver Heart-Shaped Bookmark, £12.99, gettingpersonal.co.uk

This gift would be a winner for grandparents who love to read. Treat them to this beautiful bookmark engraved with a personal message of your choice – a loving reminder of how much they mean whilst ensuring the pages remain in perfect condition. Beats the garden fork you were considering.

4.For The Girlfriend, Wife (Or Me): Caudalie Resveratrol Face Lifting Experts Set, £42 (Worth £69), lookfantastic.com.

I will let you in on a little secret – when it comes to anti-aging, resveratrol is going to be huge! This wonder ingredient has undergone extensive tests and shown to deliver outstanding rejuvenating results. Caudalie’s set is formulated with stabilised Vine Resveratrol and micro Hyaluronic Acids to firm, lift, plump and smooth the skin. Included in this kit is the Resveratrol Lift Firming Serum, Resveratrol Face Lifting Soft Cream and Resveratrol Eye Lifting Balm. Believe me, any woman who knows of Caudalie will be over the moon to find this in the Christmas stocking.
