With a two-week school break, you’ll be looking for plenty of things to do with the kids. And there’s lots of Easter fun to be had at home with the right supplies.

Head to WilkoPaperchase and Next to pick up everything you’ll need for an Easter scavenger hunt – from eggs to baskets. 

Why not have an Easter arts and crafts day with paints, crayons, colouring pencils and more from WHSmith. Or for some outdoor fun get them exploring nature with some gardening gloves and seeds from Wilko to plant some flowers or vegetables.

Find your Easter treats

Whatever the occasion, it’s always nice to receive a handwritten card from a loved one so pick up an Easter card at Clintons or Paperchase to send to family and friends.

It’s a great time of year for a refresh of your home and, especially if you’re hosting a family dinner this Easter, a spot of spring cleaning is likely on your to-do list. Visit Wilko for sprays and sponges galore.

For seasonal decor, Wilko and Next also offer a range of Easter homeware – from seasonal art and crockery, to special Easter ornaments for an Easter Tree or Easter Wreath.

Or switch up your colour palette to bring in a subtle hint of spring. Shop pretty pastel cushions, bedding and accessories at Fenwick and Collingwood Batchellor and browse the range of spring scents including freshly cut grass and cherry blossom candles.


Spring wardrobe essential

Whatever your style, French Connection, Fenwick and Oliver Bonas have a range of Easter outfits to suit all occasions.

And with the days starting to get longer and warmer, now is the perfect time to start transitioning your wardrobe for spring. Swap heavy winter coats for a lighter jacket, and switch jumpers for t-shirts and shirts. You can browse the latest styles for the season at Hobbs and Monsoon.
