Your typical Easter traditions may be put on pause this year, but you can still celebrate Easter with your family safe and sound in your home. This is a great time to remember that holidays are not about the money we spend or the places we go, but rather the memories we create with our loved ones. Here are some activities you can take part in at home to celebrate Easter responsibly.
Easter Egg Hunt
If your family normally goes to a community Easter egg hunt, recreate the fun for your kiddos at home or in your backyard. You can still order plastic eggs and candy or pick some up at your local grocery store while following their guidelines for social distancing. If you have multiple children, divide up the colors and have each child find their assigned color of egg. Fill them with candy, coins, or even little notes!
Perhaps your family typically goes out to breakfast Easter morning. You can still have a lovely Easter brunch with your household. Pick up ingredients for your favorite brunch dish from the grocery store or support a local restaurant by getting your food to go. If you are unable to obtain certain ingredients, it’s a great chance to try new dishes! Gather your family around the table for a nice meal and talk about all of the things you are grateful for.
Meet Digitally with Family
If you are used to spending the holiday with family outside your household, you can still see their smiling faces via a digital platform. Spend Easter with them while still keeping your loved ones safe & healthy. There are plenty of apps that were already in existence or have just recently popped up due to social distancing that you can utilize.
Spend time in the garden planting your favorite flowers, a great reminder that April showers bring May flowers. As you watch your garden bloom, take it as a reminder that no matter the situation, there is hope and things will look up!
Easter Arts & Crafts
Dyeing Easter eggs is a fun and crafty tradition for many families, but as eggs are harder to come by right now, your family may want to find alternatives and save your eggs for a morning scramble. This site contains plenty of Eggless Easter Crafts! Try baking cookies shaped like bunnies and decorating them or get crafty with supplies you have laying around the house. This will keep the kids busy and keep you in the Easter spirit!
