The Easter is getting closer and it seems that this year and this year’s Easter celebration will be a bit different for most people. Most of us are used to celebrating this special event with our family and a bunch of our friends or even neighbours. But, it seems that this year the practice of celebrating Easter will change a bit in almost every country in the world. The reason for that is because people are encouraged and should stay at home due to an easy and fast spread of the pandemic of coronavirus. This means that people won’t have guests coming over for an Easter, instead, they'll spend it surrounded by people they already live with, which in most cases are their families. The quarantine time is a perfect way to spend more time with your dear ones. But, if you have kids and you're running out of ideas on how to keep them entertained while staying at home, especially during an Easter here are some suggestions on how to do that.

And there are lots of possibilities and ways on how you can colour and dye your Easter eggs.

This is an easy way to decorate the eggs, but just make sure you start doing that on time and a few days earlier since it takes them a few days to dry.
Decorate Your Space
Apart from decorating and colouring your eggs for Easter, you could also decorate your home and space in it.

Even though people are self-isolating and being under lockdown during an Eastern holiday, you can choose some of your favourite types of flowers online and have the same-day flower delivery. This way, your lovely bouquet of carefully chosen flowers will be brought to you without you leaving your home.
You’ve managed to colour and dye eggs for Easter, but where to put all those eggs now?

You can even go one step further and make a bunny basket by adding a handle on top of it. You can make this fun decoration with your kids or without them.
