Easter is normally buzzing with fun, family events over the long weekend, but sadly this is no ordinary Easter.
All the joy and excitement we would normally outsource is now left for us to create.
Luckily, the online world is full of great ideas, and the Easter bunny knows where you live, so you can look like an Easter expert and deliver a little magic at home.
Here’s what you can do to keep the mood up during Easter:
#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 Forster Dental Centre, 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.
Do not forget the simple day-to-day habits that will help you keep a healthy mouth.

- Drink plenty of water.
- Cut down on your consumption of sugary foods and drinks.
It has become necessary for us to temporarily close our dental centre, to maintain the health and safety of all of our staff and patients.
However, we are able to advise and treat those patients with genuine dental emergencies, which are classified as dental pain and or swelling which does not respond to pain relief medication.
