This Easter is not like what we have ever experienced at Round Hill Hotel & Villas. Instead of getting to spend your Easter vacation here with us and experiencing the first dazzling vermilion Hibiscus blossoming and drooping gracefully at the gardens at Round Hill or relaxing in our double edged infinity pool while overlooking the perfect sunset; it’s silky smooth collisions of sky burst reds and yellows into the calm of the night, you will have to spend it at home. We know this may be difficult for some persons as you may have wanted to come home to your Round Hill Family and spend Easter with us. You are in our thoughts and your safety is at utmost priority. So just this once, you can stay home, relax with your family and enjoy these eggciting activities while thinking of us.
Home Baking: Jamaican Easter Bun
Easter in Jamaica is marked by the enjoyment and delight of Easter bun and cheese. The tradition of baked goods as offerings to deities made its way from England, where cross buns were made and consumed on Good Friday – with the cross a symbol of the crucifixion. Over time, Jamaica made the original English cross bun its own by using molasses in the mix instead of honey. Since then, bun has been a favourite snack for all ages – usually paired with cheddar cheese.
This Easter, be daring. Try your hand at making your own moist, delicious, Jamaican Easter Bun, a fun activity which involves all members of the family. Click here for the full recipe.
Another activity that your family can do together is to hide eggs around your home including the sandbox. Not only will it make your kids feel like they are at Round Hill running around with Faith hunting for easter eggs, but it will give them a chance to enjoy Easter morning.
Eggs and Easter go together like presents and Christmas and our kids will love this activity. You can dye and decorate these eggs just as it would have been done at the kids club.
Easter Nest Hiding
Easter Nest Hiding is another fun activity that all members of the family will enjoy.
Who doesn’t like to search the house and yard for baskets filled with chocolate?
Easter nests are hidden for kids (and some grown-ups). The nests are actually decorated baskets or boxes that are filled with chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, candy, and toys and are said to be hidden by the Easter bunny himself. Pretend that you are by the Organic garden overlooking the city of Montego Bay searching for these savoury treats. Maybe if you are lucky you will see the Easter bunny hopping by.
