An idea has come to us from New Zealand that on Easter Sunday when the children would be hunting for eggs.
In light of the Covid-9 pandemic, it is imperative that we practice social/physical distancing. With so many parents at home with their children due to school closures, it is hard to find enough ideas and activities to keep them busy and active.
So what if we all homeowners created Easter Egg crafts and hang the results on our front doors or on our windows. One can think of a large paper shape of an egg, colour and decorate it. Parents could then take their children out for a walk to find and take pictures of as many of them as they can find.
Here in Fisher Heights we did this for St. Patrick’s day using a large green shamrock. We understand that one girl counted 153 (!) while out walking with her grandma.
See more here, where even the New Zealand Prime Minister participates. During a press conference on Monday, she deemed both the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy vital workers for the New Zealand economy, thus granting them special status to break their quarantine “bubble” and visit Kiwi homes.
