Whether you’re burrowing down for school hols or going away for the long weekend, Easter can quickly add up! Don’t lose sight of what it’s all about: spending time with the fluffle. And, if you can do so without spending too much else, even better!
To help you keep your budget on track, we’ve thrown ourselves down the virtual rabbit hole and dug up the internet’s best wallet-friendly Easter tips. Here they are:

Get creative with Easter-themed crafts such as egg colouring or dyeing, decorating baskets, and drawing Easter cards. With a few key strikes in Google or YouTube, there’s no shortage of eggcellent, inexpensive ideas to show your Easter spirit!
Take advantage of the plethora of shopping centres trying to get you through their doors and schedule in those activities for the kids.
Typically, this time of year, you can find an egg painting or scavenger hunt pop-up at every major mall. Check in the little ones and *bonus* buy yourself some free time.
While you’re out, how about hitting your go-to op shops, grocers, dollar stores and big retailers like Kmart or Target to hunt for deals on Easter decorations, chocolates and activities for the family.
If you’re hosting – have everyone bring an Easter-themed dish (think marshmallow bunny tails or carrots and dips).
Otherwise, get in the kitchen and DIY Easter treats like rabbit cookies or cupcakes. Getting the kids in on the action can be a fun way to spend an afternoon.
An Easter hunt in the backyard or at a local park can be good, wholesome fun for your family and friends. Hide plastic eggs filled with candy, small toys and stickers or little surprise gifts for your guests… Let the scavenging begin!
Dyeing eggs is a classic Easter activity. You can purchase a dyeing kit at your local dollar store, make your own with food colouring and vinegar, or use natural dyes like cabbage or plants.
Make the most of this stretch of sunshine before the Winter season and plant a garden. But if flowers or herbs are not your thing, go for a bike ride, picnic, or hike. You can also plan a family outing to a nearby park or nature reserve.
Grab a tub of popcorn and gather around the TV to watch some Easter classics like “Hop,” “Rise of the Guardians,” “Peter Rabbit” or “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!”
