The last few months of lockdown may have tested us all but with Easter just around the corner, there’s no reason not to celebrate – whether together with your household, or virtually with friends, colleagues and wider family.

We have a string of fun activities to keep everyone entertained, including two competitions for both children and adults with prizes up for grabs.

Get stuck in and remember to let us know how you do by tagging us on social media.

Children’s competition

Blaze Bear has been on an Easter Egg hunt, and we’re asking your little ones to show off their artistic flair by colouring in the sheets below – decorating not only the eggs, but Blaze too – for the chance at winning a £10 Waterstones voucher. Alternatively, they could draw their own Easter creation from scratch and send it in for a chance at the prize! Either comment on our social media or email us a photo to marketing@firefighterscharity.org.uk of you holding up your colourful creation. The closing date will be 16 April.

Adults’ competition

We’ve got a competition to keep the adults entertained this year too. Send us your best Easter-themed poem or limerick for a chance at winning your own £10 Waterstones voucher. You can either comment on our social media or email us at marketing@firefighterscharity.org.uk with your completed words. The closing date will be 16 April.

Here’s an example from us to get you started!

There once was a bear named Blaze
Who never failed to be amazed
At the fire family’s skills
And their constant determined will
To support the Charity for all their days!

Easter fun sheet

We’ve got a special Easter Blaze Bear activity sheet to keep the kids occupied too.

Listen to our podcast

Our health and wellbeing podcast has had a bit of a makeover this season, with each episode now focused on a different topic and trimmed down to a pocket-sized 20 minutes, so you can fit it easily into your day. Available through all the usual podcast channels, you can find us on Spotify, Apple or Google Podcasts. However, if you’re newly dipping your toe in to the podcast pool, you can find all the episodes here.

Get moving as a family

Some of our experts are on hand to provide exercises you can do from the comfort of your own home using basic equipment – because we all deserve to live well, whether it’s in lockdown or not. Join in with some of our exercise at home videos here.
