10 Festive and Fun Ways to Celebrate Easter at Home This Year
Hop to it! Just because you’re staying inside doesn’t mean you have to forgo the fun celebration.
A sure sign of spring, Easter is one of the sweetest holidays to celebrate. But because we'll celebrating at home this year means our usual Easter traditions might look a bit different. Try these kid-friendly at-home activities to commemorate the special day without stepping (or should we say, “hopping”?) foot outside your front door. Make a festive Easter basket, whip up a traditional brunch recipe for the family, and of course, don't forget about dyeing Easter eggs. Try one (or all!) of these family-friendly Easter activities to keep spirits high.
Whether you hang it indoors or out, this faux flower wreath will brighten the scene. The simple and short instructions (it takes just one hour, start to finish!) will brighten your mood.
Instead of tucking the decorated eggs behind trees and in tall grassy areas, sneak them under pillows and disguise them on shelves for an indoor Easter egg hunt. Just be sure to take note of all of your hiding places so you can ensure they’ve all been discovered before you all dig into your chocolate bunnies! (By the way, adults will adore these grown-up egg hunt alternatives.)
You’re sure to dig at least one of these adorable Easter cakes, pies, bars, and breads. With pastel colors and a variety of flavors, they’ll be a welcome break from the jelly bean-palooza.
Balance out all of the sugar with a healthy dose of fruit atop this dessert pizza. Kids can use their creativity to help “dye” the egg with fruit stripes. While we suggest starting with store-bought sugar cookie dough to save time, you can certainly start with a homemade cookie dough base if you prefer.
Inspire your kids to take a break from their iPad or TV and ask them to play a game in real life. These holiday-theme memory games, races, mazes and more will keep their brains (and bodies) active.
