Get your marshmallow bunnies in order, the Easter weekend is upon us! With spring in the air, flowers in bloom, and a symphony of chirping birds at nearly every corner, this feel-good time of year is perfect to plan some fun family Easter celebrations. And just because you’re spending Easter at home doesn’t mean you can’t have a weekend chock full of excitement and bunny-filtered selfies.

Have a “peep” at these six ideas below to ensure every-bunny in your family will have a memorable Easter weekend. No yolk.

1. Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate

Golden wrapped easter bunny chocolates

There’s nothing more exciting (or enjoyable) than indulging in gold-wrapped, chocolatey Easter goodness. Can there even be Easter without chocolate? We don’t think so. Milk, dark, white, orange, and mint. Bunny-shaped, robin-egg coloured, and beyond. Get all your kids’ favourite Easter chocolates at Rexall, and some for you, too.

4. Plan an epic Easter egg hunt

There’s nothing like a good dance-off to shake the quarantine blues away, and Valentine’s Day can set a variety of moods when it comes to choreography. If you’re virtually meeting up with pals or hanging solo, consider recreating moves from your favourite music videos or movies to bring your energy up. If you’re shacked up with a significant other, something soft and slow might feel more appropriate. Dig through the depths of YouTube to find the perfect dance tutorial to sway away together throughout the night.

5. Purchase some egg-cellent gifts

Did you know the Easter Bunny is an essential service? The Easter Bunny has more surprises in their pouch than just treats. How about the floppy-eared Jellycat Woodland Bunny or the miniature Calico Critters Hoppin’ Easter Set from Mastermind Toys? And, we can’t forget about the classic Peter Rabbit series, including Peter Rabbit: A Fluffy Easter Tale from Who knew the Easter Bunny could fit that much in their pouch?
