Easter is among the ideal holidays to spend time with your family, while celebrating the resurrection. Whether you’re at home or in church, it’s best to make this a fun and memorable day for children. As such, they can understand easily why this occasion is worth celebrating. Here are some ideas to help you get started:
Decorate and Hunt Easter Eggs
Easter won’t be complete without the colorful eggs. Give your child the chance to get creative by letting them design all the Easter eggs. Don’t worry about the outcome because what matters is the fun and effort they put into the activity. After letting the paint and decorations dry out, hide the Easter eggs in your home or backyard and have a corresponding prize for every piece they find. To make the event more enjoyable, invite friends or family members to participate.
Attend Easter Community Events
Spend time with everybody in the family at your community church. Many family life ministry (FLM) offerings, liturgy, and contemplative Easter servicesin Denver, CO and other parts of the US are available at different schedules to accommodate you. Community churches also accept Easter basket donations, which can include candies, toys, reading and writing materials, and personal hygiene products like toothbrushes and hair accessories.
Host an Easter-inspired Party
Throw a party and invite your neighbors, particularly their kids. Plan the program to make it entertaining for both children and adults. Bake cupcakes, cookies, and other pastries and prepare decorations like Easter eggs, baskets, and bunny hats. The party is a good opportunity to launch the Easter Egg Hunt too. Announcing this to your invitees will insure their participation.
Easter is a good day to take a break, so let your children have fun. Do the activities listed above and feel free to add anything you prefer to make this holiday memorable for them.
