Baking with puff pastry
You can buy puff pastry already rolled at the supermarket and then you can use it in a variety of ways. Check out this website for ideas:
We used apples with ours:
Go for a nice walk every day with your parents/carers
Exercise is really important and a great way to make you feel better. I have been going for an hour walk every day as well as doing some exercises at home. Hopefully some of you have also been doing the Joe Wicks workouts every morning. Here's the link if you haven't yet:
I've seen lots of interesting things on my walks. Have you? Here's two of my favourite things that I have seen so far:

Picnic at home
A nice and simple activity idea is to create your own picnic at home. You could do this in your living room, your garden or on your balcony. All you need is a picnic blanket (or a throw or sheet) , some cushions (if you have some) and some food! I decided to have a healthy picnic. It was really fun! I've attached a picture below. Let me know what you think and if you have one.
Over the Easter holidays, I thought it would be nice to make a cheesecake. What do you think ?
I will put the recipe below:
This easiest ever No Bake Easter Mini Egg Cheesecake is packed with Easter chocolate treats. A crumbly biscuit base, topped with whipped cream and cream cheese, an absolutely delicious dessert.

Crush the biscuits until they look like lumpy sand. (I did mind in a food processor because I'm very lazy..)
Mix with the melted butter and press into your 7" tin.
Chop the 360g of the Mini Eggs in half.
Combine the whipped cream, icing sugar, cream cheese, vanilla extract and chopped Mini Eggs. Fold in gently until fully combined.
Smooth on top of the biscuit base and flatten the top with the back of a spoon or a palette knife if you have one.
Chill for 2 hours or even better, over night.
Use my knife tip (above) to remove the cheesecake from the tin.
Plop the remaining whipped cream on top of the cheesecake and pile on the remaining Mini Eggs (some chopped in half).
Share and enjoy!
We used malteser bunnies and galaxy eggs for the toppings instead. We then sprayed them with edible glitter. You could decorate it however you would like to.
