Normally a time to get out and about and enjoy the fresh spring air, we anticipate this Easter might be a little bit different. That’s not to say we should forget the fun! So with that in mind, we’ve trawled the internet to bring together some of our favourite crafts, games and activities that you could do at home this Easter.
No Easter buffet would be complete without a traditional chocolate nest. Now we’re not going to reveal the exact recipe here (we’ll leave that for you to puzzle over) but what we will do is talk about the specific ingredients.
Purest insist that the only cereal worth its grain for an Easter basket would be the humble shredded wheat, with its straw-like texture, perfectly conveying the look and feel of a real nest. But over the years cornflakes and rice crispies have taken centre stage (and we’re not going to lie, with these substitutes there’s a lot less danger of getting a wedge of all-bran stuck in your teeth!)
And don’t get us started on chocolate. If it’s not Cadbury, is it even an Easter Nest?
But I’m sure we can agree, no nest is complete without a cluster of mini eggs on top!
