Easter is always a time for welcoming the spring season into our homes and this year, it is quickly approaching. No matter where you are celebrating this holiday, we have some out-of-the-basket ideas for your Sunday celebration! Enjoy these fun and colorful ways to have a more egg-cellent Easter.
Baskets for the Whole Family
In addition to classic candy and small toys, fill your kid’s basket with supplies to make bathtime fun like Crayola Bath Bombs or Jurassic Jelly Soap Eggs. And don’t just stop at 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 or beauty supplies like glitter bath bomb eggs, seasonal nail polishes like Essie’s Baguette Me Not and spring-inspired lip colors. Use a coffee mug or baseball hat in lieu of a basket for an additional personal touch.
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 fun patterns and designs. 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.
Put a twist on your egg hunt by filling your eggs with cash, jokes, or scavenger hunt clues. If the weather is poor, don’t let that stop you! Have an egg hunt inside your home. We are sure you can find some great hiding spots in all the nooks and crannies! To make it more challenging in your house, write each kid's name on one or more random eggs that way they have to find their exact eggs, or make it so 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.
Need a fun dessert to make at home with your kids? Rice Krispies Treats® are the perfect way to go. Delicious, sweet, and easy to make, your kids will enjoy getting to help make this yummy dessert. Here is a list of ways to make this simple dessert into an Easter favorite.
For a fun and relaxing indoor craft, print out Easter-inspired coloring pages! Things like bunnies, ducks, and flowers would be perfect! You can also grab some paper plates, markers, crayons, and paint to freehand your own springtime idea! Cut the object out and tape a wooden popsicle stick to the back. Now you have a simple puppet that can be used to put on a play in your very own home! Watch your kids’ creativity soar with just a few craft items and a lot of imagination.
In some families it’s not Easter without an Easter ham. Delight your family with some ham and potato croquettes for an easy appetizer or snack that’s sure to please even the most discerning of ham lovers.
These are just a few ways to enjoy the Easter season with family and friends in your home! We encourage you to get creative, have fun, and enjoy the time spent with your loved ones!
