This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 21st so you have a bit more time to dust off that old bunny costume and figure out if this is finally the year you become an Easter hat person. For some out-of-the-basket ideas for your Sunday celebration, here are five ways to have a more egg-cellent Easter.
Easter Eggs to Dye For
An Easter celebration staple is dyeing eggs. Instead of just using the traditional dip dyes, get creative with stickers, googly eyes, and even string to create patterns and designs on your eggs. Looking for a vegan alternative to egg dyeing? Try decorating Easter cookies with your family or using food color to dye white marshmallows that you can add to hot chocolate or other desserts.
Baskets for the Whole Family
In addition to the baskets you make for the younger kids in your family, make one for the adults and older kids too with things they’ll really need. Instead of candy and toys, fill a basket with gift cards for places they like to shop. Use a coffee mug or baseball hat in lieu of a basket for an additional personal touch.
Put a twist on your egg hunt by filling your eggs with cash, puzzle pieces, jokes, or scavenger hunt clues. You can even add some higher stakes to the game by writing names on the eggs and the last person to find their name has to do the Easter dinner dishes or dress up as the Easter bunny next year.
For the Peep-le
Marshmallow Peeps are a classic Easter treat. Enjoy them a little differently this year by making peep filled s'mores, dipping them in chocolate, or even melting some in a pan on your stove and pouring them over popcorn. It may sound crazy, but it’s a salty/sweet combo that both looks and tastes delicious.
In some families it’s not Easter without Easter ham. Delight your party guests with Pineapple-Rum Glazed Ham, sure to please any ham lover.
