Arrange for Egg Hunt
Hunting for vividly colored eggs is an age-long Easter tradition. Kids love to hunt for eggs perched in a low branch of trees or hidden underneath a bush. Make the process more exciting for them by designing the egg hunting after a treasure or scavenger hunt style. You can move the hunting game indoor if it rains outside. An inside hunt can be fun too where you can set the difficulty level based on the age of the participating kids. A nighttime egg hunt can be thrilling too for a little bit older kids.
Color Eggs with Kids
Eggs and bunnies are two integral parts of Easter celebration. They are the symbols of new life. Children like to dole out joys of Easter by exchanging painted Easter eggs. Buy some paint, craft glue, glitter, and beads and make the eggs at home. Involve your children in the making process. Let them dye, paint, and decorate the eggs with beads. After that, give them the eggs to present them to their friends. It will be a total fun for both you and your children.

Prepare a Delicious Meal
Easter means lots of tempting and delicious meals. Make the meal a delicacy to everyone by making fun-to-make Easter treats. Make cupcakes with bunny-shaped cream toppings, bake a lemonade cake with lemonade-buttercream frosting, prepare some bite-sized lemon curd tassies, make some oven-baked hot cross buns, cook a loaf of juicy pork loin, and buy some chocolates. Everyone will love such a menu for sure.

Adorn the Home
Decorating the home in a pretty way is also a part of Easter celebration. Take a basket with full of blooms decorated with artificial eggs and hang it on your door. You can also adorn the inside of your door with a wreath made of various colors of yarn. Décor the indoor with eggshell potted plants or egg-shaped crafts hung with ribbons. Fill a bowl with floral printed eggs and make it the centerpiece of your dining table.

Make Gift Baskets
A great way to happiness is to share joy and happiness. So, apart from having fun with near ones, share your happiness with others by presenting them some gifts especially made for this occasion. Design a gift basket for each of them with crafts that you can make at home. Add some Easter eggs and some candies too. Give the finishing touch by decorating the basket with some Easter Lily flowers. Such a wonderful gift will definitely make your friends and relatives happy.
Send gifts like Easter cards, Easter flowers, or special Easter gift baskets stuffed with books, accessories, toys, chocolates, and candies to those dear ones who live far from you. Be happy and try to make everyone else happy and that is the main mantra of enjoying any occasion.
