It goes without saying that this Easter and Passover are going to be one for the books, right? With the entire country staying at home and not gathering in groups of 10 or more, these holidays are going to be smaller and more intimate than ever…which isn’t a bad thing! We’ve put together six quarantine-friendly Easter ideas for you and the fam to celebrate.
Host a virtual egg-decorating contest
The egg decorating part of Easter is always a highlight for the kids, and there’s no reason they can’t still decorate! We love the idea of holding a egg decorating contest via Zoom or FaceTime, and the winner can get a gift card to Amazon or another online retailer.
Put together an Easter Bunny egg hunt in your own yard
If you’re lucky enough to have your own back or front yard you can absolutely still hide all the eggs from the Easter Bunny. No reason to skip tradition here!
Get dressed up for a family photo
Family photos are a must, especially because this Easter will be super unique and something your kid’s kids will be talking about. If you own a tripod all the better, but you can also set a timer on your iPhone to make sure that everyone is included in the photo.
Attend a virtual service
If you’re a family that would typically go to church on Easter, we recommend doing some research to see if your church (or really any church) is doing a virtual service that you can participate in.
Order in from your family’s favorite restaurant or local catering company
Cooking a festive meal is always a great option, but we also love the idea of making your lunch or dinner a bit more festive (while also supporting a local restaurant or caterer!) by ordering in. Caterers like Annie Campbell have full holiday menu options and a la carte options for delivery, in addition to seasonal menus.
Organize a family craft project
Lastly, for another fun Easter activity, we love the idea of a group craft activity. Depending on the age/ages of the kids, do some research and come up with a creative project or two that the whole family can do together.
What are some of the ways you’re going to celebrate Easter while in quarantine? We’d love to hear your ideas, too!
Happy Planning and Happy Easter!
