Have an Easter Egg Hunt

At the top of anyone's list of Easter activities has to be a classic Easter egg hunt. Think big when it comes to prizes so everybody can participate, even the adults.

Dye Easter Eggs

All those colorful eggs are a must come Easter Sunday. Try coloring them naturally if you'd rather skip the store-bought dye this year.

Enjoy an Easter Brunch

A spring-inspired brunch is a fantastic way to celebrate.

Visit the Easter Bunny

Another typical Easter tradition is paying a visit to the Easter Bunny. Even if you can't do your usual mall trip this year, come up with some fun alternatives. Whether it's buying a costume or just putting on a pair of bunny ears, your kids will still be excited!

Make Easter Baskets

Easter baskets are always so much fun to open. One way to add extra fun to yours is to hide them somewhere in the house for your kids to find when they wake up!

Make Hot Cross Buns

If you don't already partake in this English Easter tradition, give it a try this year! Hot Cross Buns are sticky and sweet and the perfect bite to have on Easter morning.

Decorate With Easter Lilies

These gorgeous white lilies are symbolic of innocence and purity and often gifted during Easter. Send a friend or loved one a bouquet this Easter to let them know you're thinking about them.

Plant Flowers

Easter is a great time to get your yard ready for the warm weather ahead! Pick up some bulbs and gather the family for a day of planting and getting your hands dirty.

Go to Church

Then spend the rest of the day with family. Even if you can't physically go to church this year, you can attend a service virtually at home.

Bake a Gorgeous Glazed Ham
You know it will please your Easter crew!
Play Games Outside

In addition to your Easter egg hunt, organize a handful of other games to play outdoors. For instance, turn a classic potato sack race into one that's perfect for the occasion by hot gluing a little cotton ball on the back. It'll look just like a bunny's tail!

Make Easter Crafts Together

Put together some cute arts and crafts with your kids this Easter, in addition to dyeing eggs. You could even make fun toppers for your desserts like chicks and bunnies!
