Easter is one of my favorite holidays, not just because of all the chocolate (although I am a huge chocolate lover) but mostly because I get to see my kids have fun searching for eggs and getting excited to spend time with family.
Favorite kid-approved Easter Traditions
The Easter egg hunt
Do you remember when you were a kid and you woke up knowing the Easter Bunny had left you chocolate eggs hidden around the house? Every time Easter comes around, I think back to the Easter traditions I had and I do my best to make sure that Rori and Ryland have that same experience.
You could have an Easter egg hunt at home or check out your events near you. Our community Easter egg hunt has games, photos, and of course the big egg hunt. It’s such a great way to get the kids out of the house and explore a new environment. As a bonus, sometimes these events have breakfast shortly after so it’s a great way to spend a morning with your family as well.
Get your kids active while on the hunt too! Fill some of your plastic Easter eggwith little notes of activities and even some exercises for them to do to help burn off some of that extra energy; notes such as, hop like a bunny, touch your toes, or even making animal noises. Doing this will be entertaining for the kids and for you as a parent too!
The Easter Breakfast
After a fun filled morning of finding Easter Eggs, my family always enjoys a nice breakfast together and on Easter I always let the kids choose what they want to eat. Pancakes are always a favourite with Ryland and Rori.
If you are looking for a fun way to make your pancakes, try making them Easter themed. Check out this recipe for Easter Bunny Pancakes. Get your kids to help you stir the batter, pour some of the mixture into the frying pan, or even let them decorate their Easter Bunny!
Decorating Easter Eggs
Do you remember decorating Easter eggs when you were young?The creativity that flowed through you onto that small oval and the pride you felt each time you looked at your masterpiece? There are so many different ways that you can decorate eggs with your kids, and last week while I was at the store I saw a lot of different kits, here were my favorites:
