Easy Easter Fun

Easter is right around the corner. No matter how you spend it, or what your family traditions are, you can make it a fun, memorable long weekend with family-friendly activities, yummy treats, and good times.

Chocolate? Mini eggs? Marshmallow peeps? Easter goodies are sure to satisfy even the strongest of sweet tooths. But before you unwrap another foil egg or toss back another handful of pastel M&Ms, try baking Easter-themed shareable treats as a fun and yummy way to celebrate. Stop by Bulk Barn or Fairway Market to get your baking essentials and then swap chopped mini eggs for chocolate chips in your next batch of cookies or make a sweet and salty popcorn mix with jellybeans and chocolate eggs.

Easter also means spring and what better way to make the season a little more colourful than to plant some seasonal florals. Give your garden a spring cleaning (and planting) or stock up on clay pots you can paint with your little ones for a fun long weekend art extravaganza. Be sure to hit Dollarama for all your art supplies and spring gardening necessities.

Ready to explore? Instead of an Easter Egg Hunt, why not go on a scavenger hunt? Head outside if the weather is nice or stay warm and cozy (and dry) with an at-home adventure.

Simply copy down this list and get busy hunting!

However you spend your long weekend, we wish you a happy, healthy, and fun Easter!
