It’s the long weekend we’ve all been looking forward to, but we’re all going to be spending it indoors as we approach the third week of the National Lockdown. That said, it doesn’t mean that you and your family need to forgo the Easter fun altogether… Here are some great ideas to get into the Easter spirit without having to leave the house!
Easter Egg Maker is an app that takes this traditional craft into the digital sphere. It’s free and allows your little ones to decorate eggs to their liking and store pictures of the final product in a gallery. An added bonus is that there’s no mess to clean up and never a shortage of fresh eggs to decorate!
There are loads of Easter-themed games for download, but Easter Swap must be the most addictive of all! The game is set up similarly to the very popular Candy Crush Saga. Work your way up the levels by matching Easter icons in rows of three. This game is perfect for all ages and will keep little fingers entertained for hours on end.
Dorothy Kunhardt’s classic story transitions perfectly into this stunning app. The app captures the original touch-and-feel elements of the story with bonus features such as allowing the pages to be virtually coloured in and using your smartphone’s camera as a mirror. This is a great way to spend some quality time with your little one and get them excited for the arrival of the Easter Bunny. Download for iOS or Android.
While it’s sad that many of us won’t be able to celebrate the long weekend with many of our loved ones, you can still keep in touch in a unique and digital way with Touchnote. Create a virtual postcard with Touchnote’s template designs, add your own pictures, and share your creation with friends and family far and wide to let them know you’re thinking of them.
In this game, little ones can explore various locations and spy out hidden Easter eggs as they climb the levels. This takes the hassle out of traditional Easter egg hunts as parents no longer need to purchase and hide chocolate eggs themselves, and kiddies will be just as excited to find the virtual eggs as they would be finding them in real life.
This app will bring delight to children and grown-ups alike! It’s a great tool to encourage good behaviour as little ones struggle to keep themselves out of trouble while cooped up during lockdown. Parents can select to play the good or bad behaviour message, while little ears listen to a voicemail message from the Easter Bunny, encouraging them to be good and ramping up the excitement as Easter approaches. Download for iOS or Android.
We hope that these apps will help reignite the Easter spirit for you and your family during the National Lockdown and that the weekend will be a fun respite from the boredom and frustration that has probably brewed from being in isolation. From all of us at TRRC, stay safe and be kind!
