Make Easter a fun and memorable day for your kids
Spring is already here and Easter will be here in a few days. The stores, schools, restaurants and street corners have already started decorating their space with eggs, bunnies and Easter baskets in anticipation of the holiday. Parents are generally in a dilemma explaining the significance of Easter and want their kids to know more about the day than just bunnies and eggs. Here are a few tips to make Easter an educational as well as a fun day.
Explaining Easter to kids
Explaining Easter to little kids is not as simple as explaining Christmas, but it is important for them to understand the significance of the day. If you find it difficult to communicate it to your kid you can explain it to them by getting age appropriate books and making them understand. Some of the popular books that you can read on Easter for kids are “What is Easter?” by Michelle Medlock Adams or “The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story” by Mike Berenstain.
Hunting for Easter eggs
Now that they understand the significance of Easter, you can tell them that an egg signifies the symbol of a new life just like when the chick emerges from the egg. The hunting of eggs will make more sense to them and they will enjoy it more after knowing the meaning behind it. You can either take them to the local community or do it in your backyard for fun. Hide the eggs in the bushes or in plain sight on the grass so that your little ones can find it easily.
Make a unique Easter basket
You can make a unique Easter basket with the things you already have at home. You can use sand buckets, storage containers, paper gift bags or old Halloween trick or treat bag as an Easter basket. Decorate the basket with ribbons and label your kid’s name on it. Fill the basket with goodies like egg shaped chocolates, crackers, cookies, coloring books, crayons, Easter face tattoos or small toys and look at them squeal with joy when they find it.
Finally, in the night tuck your little one with a bun bun the plush blue bunny so that they continue to enjoy and have fun in their sweet dreams.
