7 Easter Traditions Everyone can Enjoy's featured image

Foil wrapped eggs, chocolate bunnies, special foods – it must be Easter! Here are some different ways to enjoy it.  

  1. DECORATE EGGS: Paint real eggs (you'll need to remove the yolk and white – find detailed directions online) with special paints. Or, pick up special Easter colouring books and colour in egg pictures with crayons and coloured markers. It's all good fun! 
  2. EASTER EGG HUNT: The egg hunt is one of the highlights for children. It's so much fun to find eggs and other treats – and adults get to hide the eggs and watch. Use plastic eggs, foil wrapped chocolate eggs or any other kind. Hide them around the house or in your yard.
  3. PUZZLE HUNT: Instead of using candy-filled eggs for your Easter Egg hunt, get a puzzle and put one piece of it into each plastic egg shape. Then hide the plastic eggs and let kids find the puzzle pieces and figure out the puzzle.
  4. LET'S MAKE SOMETHNG SPECIAL: Bake a bunny-shaped cake or cupcakes. Or use a bunny-shaped cookie cutter – for Easter sugar cookies. Kids love to help out when you're making something special like this.
  5. GO TO AN EASTER PARADE: There are still some neighbourhoods that organize traditional Easter parades with musicians, cheerleaders, decorative floats and the Easter bunny himself. Don't forget to wear an Easter bonnet!
  6. HOT CROSS BUNS: These delicious buns are a symbol of Easter as they are decorated with a cross on top. They actually date back to the 1700's. Make them or buy them, they're delicious!
  7. CHOCOLATE: Whatever you do, Easter isn't Easter without the appearance of at least one chocolate bunny.
