Plan a DIY Easter egg hunt that is fun for all.
Most local Easter egg hunts focus on the under 10 set, but why should big kids (and grown ups) have to miss out on all the holiday fun? From adults-only boozy Easter egg hunts with mini bottles from your bar cabinet, to charades hunts and backyard scavenger hunts that appeal to tweens and teens, there are lots of creative twists to the traditional egg hunt that can be DIYed at home. Just check out this cool and super clever glow in the dark Easter egg hunt idea, for example!
Dye DIY Easter eggs in the kitchen.
Dip dyeing hard-boiled Easter eggs is a timeless spring tradition and an easy task to complete at home. Just lay some craft paper or a plastic cloth across your kitchen island or table, and let the whole family join in on the creative process, whether you purchase a kit with colorful tablets that you dissolve in water and white vinegar, or you do things the old-fashioned way with DIY Easter egg dyes made from natural ingredients found in your refrigerator and kitchen pantry cabinet.
Make a special meal together as a family.
Enjoying a special meal is a large part of most holiday celebrations, including Easter, but cooking a huge feast in the kitchen doesn’t always have to be a source of added stress. This year, have a little culinary fun by trying a new recipe, and cooking Easter brunch or dinner together as a family. And don’t forget the desert! Scrumptious spring dessert options include carrot and coconut layer cake, or get creative by whipping up a variety of edible cookie doughs with jelly beans, chocolate pieces, and other spring kitchen pantry cabinet staples!
