We’re not gonna lie, there are few services lovelier than an Easter
service held at dawn in a stained glass-filled church. But if you’re not doing
the church thing this year, or aren’t terribly religious to begin with, there
are lots of little ways to enjoy the holiday solo and with family and friends. Here
are just a few of our favorite ideas.
Throw a sleepover the night
before and set an alarm to wake you up just before dawn. Take some sweet eats
outside as you bundle up in blankets and take in the perfection of a spring
Plan the ultimate Easter egg
hunt. Assign each family member or friend a different colored plastic egg
and place each person’s favorite candy inside them. The first person to find
all the eggs of their designated color gets a chocolate bunny.
Get dressed up in your finest
spring frocks, gather up your ladies and go promenading around your
neighborhood. Grab a camera and take goofy candid shots of each other all
Volunteer to wear the big bunny
suit and visit a children’s hospital or shelter to give out Easter baskets
and take picture with the kids. Trust us, it’ll be the most fun you’ll have
wearing bunny ears.
Make Easter baskets for your
parents. Remember when they would load one up with treats for you and your
siblings? Return the favor with cute little baskets piled high with some of
their favorite things.
Plant a wildflower garden.
Pick up a variety of small flowering plants and seeds the day before, then get
ready to sow your own patch of nature’s bounty. This is a great way to
celebrate the rebirth that Easter is all about.
Play with chocolate. Head to
a good grocery store and snag a couple bags of chocolate chunks or chips in a variety
of cocoa percentages. Raid mom’s pantry and grab extracts, peanut butter,
caramel, sprinkles and anything else you could possibly want to combine with
chocolate. With the help of a few silicone candy molds (or a muffin tray), you
have everything you need to make your own confections!
