Free isolation activities

Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be creating some free creative activities to help keep everyone busy while we’re in isolation because of corona virus.

They will be added to this post so please check back as there will be at least a couple of new activities per week.

Easter bunny gift box

An Easter bunny gift box which is 6 cm cubed, so large enough for a creme egg sized egg or a selection of sweets/chocolates. Choose from a grey or lilac version that you just need to cut out and assemble, or a version that you can colour in too.

To assemble:

  • Cut out around the edge.
  • Score or fold on the dashed lines.
  • Apply glue or sellotape on the tabs.
  • To line the inside I have used coloured paper which I’ve put through a shredder. You could also use a little cotton wool or some fabric.
  • If you’re very crafty you may have a pom pom to put on the back as the tail.

Easter chocolate sleeve

It’s a bit tricky to send Easter eggs in the post during lockdown, so why not send a chocolate bar instead which will fit in a postbox. Here’s a sleeve to decorate, or a sleeve already decorated for you.
