Easter Tradition have been around for a very long time.
Did you know that Easter is the oldest religious holiday?
I want to explore how to celebrate Easter tradition with children. While the pastel decor is a tip to welcome Spring, with the snow melting away. Easter has so much meaning and it’s a great time to teach children about the significance.
For me, as a child, Easter was about being with family. Eating themed foods and church service. While I have instituted some of these into my motherhood journey, I want to expound on that.
Here is a list of things to create a great Easter Tradition with your family.
PAINT EASTER EGGS
This is such an easy and fun activity Easter tradition. In the past, we have dyed our Easter eggs. This year I plan on adding in the painting aspect.
EASTER EGG HUNT
Also another easy and fun activity. A lot of facilities such as churches and town centers organize an Easter egg for free or very low cost.
This was so fun last year. We scattered eggs throughout the yard and the kids went on a hunt. Needless to say they had a blast.
ACKNOWLEDGE THE REASON FOR THE CELEBRATION
I was raised spiritually. Church on Sundays was mandatory and holidays such as Easter were a special event. Raising children to be aware of the reasons for such celebration gives them perspective. Read books surrounding Easter, acknowledge that this is a religious holiday and that Christ rose during his time.
DO A FAMILY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Take the family out on a walk around the neighborhood. You can even be more adventurous and go for a hike, then an Easter picnic. That would be such a reward after a strenuous hike.
HOST AN EASTER BRUNCH
Easter dinners are the traditional family gathering, but why not have friends over for brunch instead. You will still have time to make the family dinner.
CREATE EASTER ARTS AND CRAFTS
This is easy enough. Target’s three dollar section has some of the best activities. If budget is an issue, easily go online and print out free printable of the Easter bunny. Have the kids color them and enjoy.
