To encourage green fingers, you could bring the outdoors in with a sunflower growing kit.
If the weather forecast isn't great - which, lets face it, is inevitable - then go wild with craft supplies instead, anything from crayons to stickers, coloured paper and googly eyes and lots of glue. We love shops like Tiger and HEMA for cheap and cheerful hauls. Then read our Easter craft round-up for some creative inspiration.
Why not make an Easter basket? We love all the ideas in TalkMum blogger Charlotte's video (have you watched her latest breastfeeding video?)
What about books? Here's our ideas for some classic children's reads.
Nothing beats curling up on the sofa with a good film, so a DVD will always come in handy (especially on those days you're feeling tired and less that enthusiastic). I always remember the year my parents bought us the video tape of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves as our Easter present, and we watched it every day for months.
Why not give the gift of music? Download some MP3s to make an Easter playlist (or subscribe to Spotify Premium to get ad-free access to all the music you could ever think of, from classical albums to power pop and film soundtracks).
If you're into cloth nappies, what about a new pattern to mark the occasion? We love the cheerful prints on Bambino Mio's eco-friendly all-in-one nappies.
And finally, there's the classic children's Hide and Squeak Eggs(we were given these when my daughter was one and are still playing with them years later. There's always one missing egg though, isn't there?)
