Easter is coming up and it’s time to start thinking about what you want to do to celebrate this special occasion. Whether you’re going to visit family in another state, or you have loved ones in the same city, it’s a great day to spend with the people you hold dear. Here are a few tips that’ll make your Easter celebrations better than last year:
Get fun Easter gift baskets
If you’re throwing an Easter celebration with loved ones and friends, consider investing in fun Easter gift baskets full of goodies your loved ones will adore. Whether they’re mini gift baskets for the little ones or one for each family, rest assured that this kind of gesture will be a hit for any Easter celebration. This is especially true if you have an egg hunt planned later on and the gift baskets can double up as egg containers.
Do an Easter egg hunt
You simply can’t go wrong with an Easter egg hunt. After all, it’s a timeless activity that always makes the little ones happy and keeps the kids entertained. Depending on the weather, you can have the hunt at a local park. If it’s a rainy spring day, you may want to celebrate Easter at an indoor venue.
Consider planning an alternative to typical chocolate treats and fill the eggs with other goodies you know that your family will love. You may even want to hire a professional photographer for this fun Easter experience with your children.
Attend an Easter celebration at church
If your family is religious, consider attending an Easter celebration at your local church. Chances are that your church has something planned for a sunrise service, from Sunday school to goodies and treats. Attend the Sunday sermon and then stay for any celebration your church has prepared, so that you and your kids have a fabulous time celebrating your faith-based beliefs for this holiday.
Host a bake off with your siblings
If you’ve been blessed with siblings and you’re all throwing an Easter celebration together, a fun activity that will also provide your family with the best goodies is to have a bake-off. Everyone prepares some delectable sweets at home and your family and friends get to try all of them. The baked goods with the highest vote wins!
It’s a fun thing to do and a great way to make sure there are plenty of baked treats to go around. You can also switch it up from baked goods to other fun dishes to see who does the best job at it.
Throw a potluck party
If you’re celebrating Easter with your extended family and everyone wants to get together, consider throwing a potluck. This way, everyone can enjoy a great Easter meal together. If you’re planning the Easter celebrations, try designating specific dishes for each family member so that you can have all the food you know and love for Easter.
While there isn’t a specific holiday menu like you’d see for Thanksgiving or Christmas, you can find great options for Easter delights online.
Easter can be a fun day to think about bunnies and search for chocolate filled eggs. Or, maybe it’s a day for you and your loved ones to think about the day Jesus rose from the dead. Either way, there are plenty of fun activities to do for those who celebrate this fun springtime holiday.
A delightful potluck meal, hiring a catering company for a party, or a visit to church for a Sunday sermon are all great ways to celebrate this day. It’s also a fabulous time to celebrate the beauty of spring.
