Hey there! It’s Easter this weekend and I thought I’d drop in quickly and tell you about some of our favorite Easter traditions. Easter celebrations tend to be a little different from year-to-year, but there are a few traditions that we can always count on.
The majority of our traditions celebrate family and our faith. I’m really loving this video that has helped turn my thoughts more to Jesus Christ this week and remind me why Easter is one of my favorites. I lost my mom when I was 15, but I know I’ll see her again because of Him! Hallelujah!
I hope you have a great weekend! And now, here’s a few of our favorite Easter traditions.
We love doing a Christ-Centered Easter Egg hunt sometime before Easter or on the actual day. It’s a fun, interactive way to talk about the Easter story.
I created a family-friend Passover dinner program that you could squeeze in anytime this weekend. I’ve also heard some families who do a “dinner in the dark” which would be fun to try some year, too. Either way, I love that it helps us talk about what happened after the Last Supper.
Take an Easter picnic
We love packing up an Easter picnic (even if it means PB&J) and getting outside as a family on Saturday. Sometimes it’s far away, up the canyon, or in the backyard.
Color Easter Eggs
Easter Bunny Visits On Saturday
A few years ago we asked the Easter Bunny to visit on Friday night, so we could find our Easter baskets on Saturday. This has helped us have lots of fun the day before Easter, but then lets us focus on the spiritual side of Easter on Sunday. The Easter Bunny brings a new book, a few treats or bunny snacks, and maybe a small toy. It’s nothing elaborate, but the kids are still thrilled.
Jello eggs sometimes make an appearance at our picnic or Easter dinner and you can be assured that we have plenty of Cadbury mini eggs to munch on!
It’s a must! This is our photo from last year, and this year, I can’t believe we’ll have another to add little one into the mix. If I’m on my A game, I love coordinating family outfits, but sometimes, I’m happy if I just get us all ready for church in time. 🙂
I’d love to hear your favorite traditions if you have any!
Have the happiest Easter!
