In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve had to cancel our annual Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt— but don’t worry! Even though our Easter gatherings and traditions might look a little different this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun with your family. Here are a few of our favorite ideas on how to celebrate:
1. Flashlight Egg Hunt
This activity can be done indoors or outdoors! Simply hide your eggs, turn off the lights, and grab a flashlight to hunt. If you don’t have plastic eggs on hand, you can get creative and hide small action figures, beads, or stuffed animals.
2. Decorate Eggs
If you’ve got egg dye leftover from last year, great! If not, then it’s time to get creative. Pull out your paint, permanent markers, or food coloring. You can even glue things to your eggs, like feathers or glitter. The possibilities are endless! Here’s a fun list of design ideas if you’re needing inspiration.
3. Make a Tasty Lunch
After you’re done decorating eggs, get your kids involved in making this simple egg salad recipe. Most kids love to cook, and this recipe is perfect for little chefs. They’ll be proud to have made their own lunch or snack!
4. Craft Cute Easter Cards
If Easter in quarantine sounds a little lonely, have your kids make and mail cards to the friends and family you’d normally be celebrating with. You can also send free digital ecards from American Greetings!
5. Join Our Rainbow Hunt
If you haven’t yet, join the Jeff Parks Rainbow Hunt! It’s quick, easy, and provides safe entertainment for neighborhood kiddos. Learn how to join here.
6. DIY Stained Glass Sun Catchers
This is a super-cute springtime craft using materials that you probably have on hand. Watch the video for instructions!
