Whether you’re heading to the mountains in Buffalo, down to the Mornington Peninsula, or creating your own ‘stay-cation’ at home, time spent with your loved ones makes for a super memorable Easter weekend.
Without further ado, let’s hatch a plan for your Easter long weekend!
1. Sun smart essentials
When you hear people say, “slip, slop, slap!” they really mean it. In fact, the sun’s rays are so powerful that they’re strong enough to penetrate through rain, hail or shine.
To start, if you’re heading to the water, we suggest slipping into a rashie to help protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. You’ll find some great options from Rebel Sport and Cotton On Kids.
When it comes to slopping on some sunscreen, our favourite is the Cancer Council SPF 50+ Kids + Zinc Sunscreen from Chemist Warehouse.
Now, it’s time to slap on a hat. We suggest wearing a cap from Universal Store. If you’re wanting something chic, check out Sportsgirl.
2. A good read
Whether you’re on the road or want some time for yourself while everyone’s out exploring, reading material is an essential item in our stay-cay packing guide!
Hop on down to Woolworths for all your magazine and newspaper needs. If you’re more into a good old-fashioned book, then take a trip to Big W to explore their vast collection.
3. Comfy clothes
We know how important it is to feel comfy on your getaway, and there are a bunch of options available at Watergardens to get your long weekend wardrobe all set.
Whether you’re hunting for Easter eggs or going on an adventure, make sure you pack casual shoes! Skechers have a great selection of sandals that are great for walking. Then, head to Best&Less for their kids’ shoes—perfect for your little explorers.
4. Games for entertainment
You can’t go wrong with a selection of games to entertain you and your fellow travellers this Easter long weekend.
You’re bound to have an egg-citing time with classic board games from EB Games. If you’re looking for something a little bit more active, why not pack the car with a footy, soccer ball or cricket set from Toyworld.
5. Snacks for the road
No road trip would be complete without snacks for the car to keep rumbling tummies at bay. For our sweet tooths out there, look no further than Walkers Doughnuts. As a healthier snack alternative, check out the range at The Nut Bar.
We’re sure that these will be a popular choice on your road trip, so prepare to share these around!
