Stay Inside Save Lives: 24 Fun Things To Do Inside Over Easter

Cayman Islands Government
Published: April 10 2020
Last Updated: June 16, 2020

Update: From Monday, 1 June 2020, the curfew and Regulations under the Public Health Law were updated to partially lift restrictions. You can find detailed information on all policies that are currently in effect here. This blog was published on Friday, 10 April 2020 and the information below was accurate at that time.

 

We understand how important Easter weekend is to the Cayman Islands, especially given the significance of the holiday to families.

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic and local situation, the Cayman Islands is currently under a "soft curfew" during the day from Monday to Saturday from 5am - 7pm followed by a "hard curfew" from 7pm - 5am daily and all day on Sunday.

 

This means that during Easter Sunday the Cayman Islands are under a hard curfew for 24 hours of the day

 

All Easter camping, and social gatherings on beaches, and elsewhere are not  permitted.

We know that the curfew in the Cayman Islands can be particularly challenging during celebrations such as Easter. Here are 24 ideas for entertaining families, friends and loved ones during curfew while observing Shelter in Place Regulations currently in place: 

 

 

 

1. Cultural Activities

Let’s talk Cul-Cha! There's an abundance of things do in Cayman and beyond, across the world.

Here are a few cultural activities you can get involved with over Easter weekend. 

▪ Church Services: Get dressed up and attend a virtual church service of your choice online (check with your local church to see if it has planned a Facebook or YouTube livestream service).
▪ Educational Games: Download some educational games from Cayman Islands National Museum, the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands or the Cayman National Cultural Foundation for some cultural fun. Click the links below:
▪ Tour The National Gallery: Take the family on a virtual tour of the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands here or go international and take a virtual tour of Museums from around the world
     

 Attend a virtual church service from home

2. Backyard Adventures

In order to comply with the shelter-in-place regulations and help save lives, you should make sure all outdoor activities are limited to your own property. This doesn't mean you can't have fun, though.

Backyard adventures are a fun way to do something new and yet familiar with your household. See how adventurous your garden can become when you make new memories and share stories under the stars. Here are some ideas:

▪ Camp out in the backyard: Pitch a tent, roll out some sleeping bags and tell stories. You may even catch a glimpse of an owl, or other cool night creatures. 

 Go stargazing: Take out your telescope or download an app like Skyview or Star Walk or simply look them up for free! 
Go Earth-gazing: Watch the earth from space with NASA Live 
 
Watch Now
 
▪ Enjoy a picnic: Spread a blanket under a tree to enjoy a slice or two of traditional Easter bun and cheese.
▪ Hunt for Eggs: Why not enjoy an egg-hunting game in your own yard. Maybe put a twist on the game by filling plastic eggs with glow-in-the-dark pieces for fun at night.
 
 

Have a backyard adventure at home during curfew

3. Connect with family and friends

▪ Write to your loved ones: Write a letter to your grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. *
▪ Be your own artist: Draw pictures or make homemadecards. *
