Easter Activities

While this Easter holiday will be different from Easters past, that doesn’t mean you can’t still participate in seasonal activities and traditions at your house. It will simply be a more intimate time with immediate family, which can be a nice change from the stress that holidays sometimes bring. The following is a small list of ideas to consider as you celebrate the Holy week.

  • Dye eggs

    • Dying eggs is always a favorite activity this time of year and since this is already a project done at home there’s no need to alter plans.

  • Easter Bunny

    • Even though children aren’t able to meet the Easter bunny for pictures or breakfast this year, that isn’t stopping the bunny from making visits. Several local community members are dressing up like the bunny and riding through neighborhoods. Children can watch and wave from their yards or the side of the street. Check your local newspapers or news channels for more information

  • Easter Egg Hunt

    • While community Easter egg hunts have been canceled this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun in your own yard. Simply hide treat filled eggs for your children throughout your own yard. Neighborhoods are also playing Easter egg and teddy bear window hunts. Just place an egg or a teddy bear in one of your windows for people to see as they drive by.

  • Make Easter cards for residents of nursing homes or assisted living facilities

    • Having your children make greeting cards with an Easter or spring theme would definitely be a welcomed surprise to those who live in nursing homes. It would be best to mail these since visitation to these facilities has been restricted.

  • Church service

    • If you wish to attend an Easter Sunday church service this can be done by connecting through your smart phone, computer or television. Many local denominations as well as national churches will be broadcasting an Easter sermon so that you and your family can watch from home. Some churches also offer drive in services. You can park your car and sit and listen as the pastor preaches from outside.
