Not sure what to do at home this Easter weekend? From egg hunts in the house to home-delivered hot cross buns - here’s how to spend Easter 2020 in Bali.
Easter is just around the corner (this year it falls on Sunday 12th April 2020) and if you’re as egg-cited about the long-weekend as we are, then you’ll already be planning your hopping Easter activities. Of course, this year we won’t be feasting at Bali’s best beachfront family brunches, or heading out on chocolate-stocked Easter egg hunts to find gourmet goodies for the kiddos. But we do still have fresh-outta-the-oven Hot Cross Buns, and plenty of at-home Easter feasts to tuck into. So without further adieu, here’s everything you need to know about spending Easter in Bali in 2020.
Happy Easter Honey bunnies!

THINGS TO DO AT HOME THIS EASTER IN BALI
Hunt for eggs at home
While we can’t go wandering the streets or attend Easter parties right now, we can make our own egg hunts at home. Hide chocolates around the house and leave clues on where to find them. And psst – this one’s not just for kids!
This one’s a must-do Easter activity – stock up on all of those essential arts and craft supplies and get busy! The kids can paint Easter bunnies, decorate eggs, fold origami chicks and even make cute cards for friends and family. And as for Mum and Dad? Well you may as well get stuck in too…
Make your own Easter cards
Since you won’t be out shopping for Easter cards this year, why not make your own at home and send them to friends and family via GO-JEK? You can paint, decorate and even glue glitter – whatever tickles your Easter bunny.
Easter is the perfect excuse to scoff cakes, chocolates and cookies all day, and since you’ve got plenty of time to spare at home, why not get baking and make some fresh-outta-the-oven cookies? It’s a win-win for the whole household, and everyone can get involved.
Get the board games out
Ain’t nuthin’ like some good old fashioned family fun, so round up the kids and dust off those old classic board games, like Scrabble, Monopoly, Rummikub, Game of Life, or Ludo. Hot tip: you can stock up on games and puzzles by shopping online…
