5 Fun and Easy Easter Activities
Easter is only a few weeks away. In America we celebrate Easter on the first Sunday following the full moon after the vernal equinox on March 21. Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus. However, like Christmas, Easter is also an important and fun secular holiday for people who do not celebrate the religious aspect of it, but enjoy the fun activities that it brings.
Whether you’re attached to the meaning behind the day or you just enjoy the activities that go along with it, there are many affordable ways to celebrate this fun holiday. Many activities are geared towards children and families, so if you have children of your own or relatives or friends with children who you enjoy, you will have many choices. However, Easter isn’t just for children; there are many ways to celebrate Easter as adults, too. From going to a Church service to just getting outside and enjoying Spring, the opportunities are abundant. Read on to learn five ways you can celebrate Easter this year.
1. Do traditional Easter activities
Many of us grew up painting searching through our backyards for candy-filled eggs that our parents hid for us. For many people, simply hiding eggs and watching their kids look for them is a fun way to celebrate Easter and to give kids a special treat. Some people do a variation of this activity and hide money or other snacks instead of candy.
Families also enjoy dyeing eggs together. Some kids have fun painting silly faces on the eggs as well; still other families hide these actual eggs outside (or inside the house to keep them clean and edible) instead of candy-filled plastic eggs. You can also choose to make egg salad sandwiches or another dish together after you are done with the eggs. If you enjoy this traditional Easter activity, but you are looking for a new spin on an old favorite, consider changing it up just a little with different decorating techniques.
