Top 8 Ideas for Easter at Home from My Local Dentists Northmead

The Coronavirus pandemic has restricted lots of our day-to-day activities, and with Easter around the corner, you may be wondering how you can re-create the fun of the chocolatiest time of the year while under lockdown.

Well, the good news is you can still have tons of Easter fun from the comfort of your own home.

Check out our favourite Easter activities to try at home below.

#1. Decorate eggs

You can boil eggs and use food dye or even food from your own pantry (like beets, turmeric or onion skins) to create multicoloured eggs for Easter.

#2. Have an indoor Easter egg hunt

Hide eggs in the dryer, under your bed or in the cabinet (make sure they don’t fall and crack). Then watch your loved ones look around for them.

#3. Do Easter-themed arts and crafts

Make paper bunnies or craft flowers out of cardboard; the possibilities are endless.

#4. Watch Easter-themed movies

Whether you choose the fun route with a film like “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” or “Hop” or opt for deeper fare like “The Passion of the Christ,” “The Robe” or “Ben-Hur,” an Easter screening is a safe and fun way to acknowledge the holiday.

#5. Dress up! Wear your Sunday best

Brush your hair and wear something sparkly for the day, and let the kids choose their own special outfit.

#6. Cook an Easter meal

If the bare grocery store shelves aren’t an obstacle, buy the materials to cook your favourite holiday dinner.

#7. Whip up some Easter-themed snacks

Devilled eggs, cookies or even brownies will be a sweet way to celebrate Easter indoors.

#8. See your family and friends virtually

Thanks to video apps like FaceTime, Google Hangouts and Messenger Video, you can still share your Easter lunch or dinner with your nearest and dearest.

This season’s Easter celebrations may not resemble those from years past, but at My Local Dentists Northmead, we believe it can still be an opportunity to do something special with the people you love the most.

Oral Health Care Tips While Staying at Home

Our oral health should always be a priority. In addition to visiting your local dental team when possible, don’t forget the simple day-to-day habits that will help you keep a healthy mouth.

  • Brush at least twice a day.
  • Clean between your teeth every day using interdental brushes or floss and consider using mouthwash.
  • Drink plenty of water and cut down on your consumption of sugary foods and drinks.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to see our patients for regular or routine appointments and will only be seeing patients for emergency treatment and services to relieve pain.

We are unfortunately unable to see walk-in patients; however, your Northmead dentist will be available every day by appointment.

You can still reach us via phone (02) 9630 9996 or email us on reception@sfdental.com.au. You will be able to reach us during our normal operating hours during this time.
