This Easter is like no other. Covid-19 continues in our communities, we are separated from extended family, and Easter supplies are not as easy to come by without putting some creativity and thought into the process.
Below are some ideas to brighten the weeks ahead surrounding Easter. From recipes to kids crafts and activities, we hope you find some simple enough ideas to engage your families during this time.
1. Indoor/Outdoor Scavenger Hunt: When I was little, we visited Boston one year for Easter and it was so cold still! The family friends we visited did an indoor scavenger hunt and at the end of it… you found your basket. This free scavenger hunt below can easily be printed and used for your own fun in or outside of the house, on a bright or chilly day.
