We all know that this Easter weekend is different. Many of you will be missing loved ones as you do your best (for us all) by staying safe at home. We've put together a little list of ideas and suggestions to brighten your weekend in. We hope it helps and we wish you all a lovely Easter.

Unwind and treat yourselves by grabbing the snacks and enjoying a family classic together. Very seasonally fitting, Peter Rabbit is available on demand via most digital channels and is a great all rounder for kids and adults to enjoy together.
Now, it's all in the detail with making these little simple 'everyday' things into something a bit more fun so..... make tickets, dress up, dim the lights, get the kids to visit the 'kitchen shop' to order their snacks and just generally 'play' with the idea. Add a bit of a fun educational twist by asking for film reviews after - we are sure there are some budding mini film critics amongst you!

Disclaimer: we hope this game causes more laughs than family rows!
