Taking This Year’s Easter Celebration to the Next Level

With Easter coming up, there is a lot of planning to do and a lot to consider. This is especially the case when you have children in the mix and you need to keep the spirit of the holiday alive, but a little more animated. Of course, it is a lot more than the commodities like colorful Easter eggs, brightly colored garb, candy eggs and bunny ears. However, that doesn’t mean those things can’t be incorporated into a great day of celebration!

With that in mind, here are some cute and fun ideas to implement this year that require minimal effort but can still maximize the fun.

1) Dyed Easter eggs without the hassle of going out to purchase the coloring supplies: http://www.foodnetwork.com/how-to/photos/how-to-make-easter-egg-dye-from-food.html

2) Pin the Tail on the Bunny: You can purchase this on a website like Amazon or Oriental Trading, but it’s cheaper to put in just a little extra work and handle this DIY style. It can be as simple as cutting out the silhouette of a bunny on paper or foam board, along with silhouettes of a cotton tail. After that, it’s all Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Donkey style for some easy fun!

3) If you’re having kids over for Easter, you can try some free printable activity sheets to keep with the holiday theme and to entertain them while you get dinner ready and mingle with your adult guests: http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/easter-games

From all of us, we hope you have a joyous Easter, filled with fun, love and quality time with loved ones!
