Best apps for Easter
Easter is just around the corner and, for many, this means the joy of a four-day weekend.
While many of us may be planning on spending the weekend catching up with friends, others might make the most of the extended break with a trip away or even just be planning on spending some quality time together as a family.
It might not quite be surrounded with the same festive feels as Christmas, but Easter still evokes plenty of excitement, especially for the youngsters.
So, if you want to keep your kids entertained during the bank holiday traffic, want to connect your children with the Easter bunny or are simply after some inspiration, here are a host of eggcellent Easter apps you should download on your mobile device:
Easter Bunny Tracker
Just as there is a tracker for Father Christmas, there are also similar apps to track the Easter bunny.
The Easter Bunny Tracker by Onteca has a GPS tracker so your kids can see whereabouts the Easter bunny is. It also has a countdown and an Easter Bunny Blog so the little ones can see what the Easter bunny has been up to.
Call Easter Bunny
Available on both Android and iOS, this app lets your kids speak to the Easter bunny through a pre-recorded phone call.
The app lets you set the time you want to receive the call and it will end with him asking your kid to promise to keep behaving well – the perfect motivation to get them to be on their best behaviour!
Doodle Jump Easter Special
If you’re travelling with kids over the bank holiday, you can be sure you’re going to get stuck in some of the delightful holiday traffic.
And as if being sat in traffic wasn’t bad enough, the kids are inevitably going to get bored.
As you might already know, Doodle Jump is a game that seems to keep kids entertained for (what seems like) hours. Give it a seasonal twist by downloading the Doodle Jump Easter Special, available for both Android and iOS.
This should, hopefully, give you some peace and quiet for a while.
Okay, so this isn’t a specific Easter app, but if you’re looking for ideas for Easter decorations, Easter bakes or Easter-based activities to keep your kids occupied, then download Pinterest (if you haven’t got it already).
Describing itself as “the world’s catalogue of ideas”, Pinterest is a go-to for people looking for ideas, inspiration and new recipes.
Typing “Easter” into the search bar will bring up a whole host of ideas. In fact, you could probably spend the whole Easter weekend just looking through all the posts that come up.
