Fun Family Things to Do This Easter Holiday

Easter holiday is the perfect time to have a breather after the first three months of the year. And, because Good Friday and Family Day are public holidays, you can have a long weekend without having to worry about taking leave at work. Because the weather is still warm, you have a wide variety of activities to choose from to keep you busy this Easter.

Easter Holiday Family Time

The Easter holiday, and especially the Easter weekend, is a great time to catch up with friends and family. You and your family or friends can gather around the braai or simply relax over a meal. If you want to, you can also have an Easter egg hunt for the kids in the garden. If you don’t feel like doing the cooking yourself (or the weather isn’t playing along) you can always book a table at your favourite restaurant.

Have Some Time Away

Many hotels and lodges have great specials over the Easter holiday, making it a lot easier to afford some time away. You don’t necessarily have to go to the other side of the country to get away for a bit. Look for places that are just outside the city you live in; that way you can have a change of scenery without having to spend too much time stuck in the car. By not travelling too far, you also miss the annual mass exodus on South Africa’s roads over the Easter holidays.

Go on a Day Trip

Of course, you don’t need to go away on vacation to get out of the house. The popular Rand Show kicks off on the Easter weekend every year and offers entertainment for the whole family. If you’re looking for something to keep the kids busy over the holidays, look in your local paper or search online for outings aimed at school children. Besides going to the beach, parks or botanical gardens, you can treat the family to a day at a theme park. You can also opt for more educational entertainment like historical tours of your city or town or go to a museum. But, no matter what you do this Easter holiday, make sure you enjoy it!
