Easter might be one of the first holidays that millions of families are celebrating in midst of the new normal that we are living today, but that does not mean that you can’t enjoy the holiday with those right in your household to the fullest.
Many are disappointed that annual Easter traditions won’t be the same under the current circumstances which is why we put together recipes of Easter treats to make for Easter brunch or lunch, along with activities for the entire family to join in on including an Easter egg scavenger hunt!
Miss your extended family? Have them join virtually on Zoom, FaceTime or any video call platform!
FIRST, LET’S COOK!
Our first set of easy-to-make recipes are made with ingredients that many of us already have right in our homes. The best part about these recipes is that you can get as creative as you want if you don’t have the exact ingredients required.
LET’S COOK SOME MORE!
Our next set of recipes are our bonus Easter treats!
LET’S GET CREATIVE!
Now that the menu options have been detailed out, let’s get creative! We highly recommend making a centerpiece with items that you might already have. This Peep floral arrangement consists of candy, vases and flowers. Adding some extra color with a fun floral arrangement to your home on Easter, especially during times like this will truly create positive energy and brighten up the ambiance and day.
Since we no longer make frequent trips to the grocery store, we picked up some Peeps and other Easter goodies while making our run to the store this week. We made a Peep floral arrangement with some of the Peeps and candy that didn’t make it to the candy Easter baskets we put together. The great part about this is that kids can make the floral arrangement while the adults are cooking.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR THE ARRANGEMENT?
- 2 vases (different sizes in circumference)
- 1 bunch flowers (any variety)
- 2 packages Peeps (less if smaller vase)
- 2 handfuls of jelly beans or marbles
HOW DO I MAKE THE ARRANGEMENT?
- Put the vase with the smaller circumference in the other.
- Insert the Peeps and candy/marbles within the space between the vases in a pattern by layering them.
- Add the flowers and water.
Even though a lot of traditional Easter egg hunts with family, friends or within communities are no longer taking place this year, you can still set up an Easter egg scavenger hunt right at home!
HOW DO WE PLAY?
DOWNLOAD THE EASTER EGG SCAVENGER HUNT
- Print copies of our Easter egg scavenger hunt file. The quantity of printed copies will be for the number of people participating. If 2 kids are participating, make sure to have 3 printed copies. 2 for the kids and a master one.
- Decide fun places to hide the Easter egg and write clues for those locations in each of the Easter eggs on the printed file. You can have the same clues for all the copies, or you can get more creative by having different clues for each participant, so each has their own group of eggs to find.
- Once you’ve filled out the copies, hide the eggs in the locations with the clues & begin the hunt!
