All About Easter!


Spring is just around the corner, bringing Easter and many other fun activities! But what other things? And what can we do for Easter that’s fun besides eating chocolate rabbits and doing egg hunts? There’s plenty of crafts, foods, and decorations you can make for Easter or just for the spring season!


But first, have you ever wondered how Easter started? Was it always a holiday in which we celebrate a large bunny that gives out candy and toys in a decorated egg? Well, no not entirely. Easter or Resurrection Sunday is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus who had previously died. It was the rebirth of Jesus. Many of you know the famous Easter eggs. The Easter eggs today are colored and hidden for younger children to find but in the past they were exchanged as gifts for one another. Easter is celebrated everywhere across the world! 


There are many fun activities and crafts to do such as decorating Easter    eggs, attending egg hunts, the egg and spoon race, bunny sack races, Easter egg Olympics, flour egg toss, baking Easter themed treats, and some people even play Easter themed bingo and card games.

Easter brings many festive treats, decorations and fun activities. Some foods commonly enjoyed at Easter are honey baked ham, salmon, potatoes, potato salad, dinner rolls, side veggie dishes, like asparagus, green beans and corn. Did you know that around 3 billion dollars are spent on Easter candy alone. Popular treats include chocolate eggs or rabbits, peeps, jellybeans, gummy bears/gummy candies, or just any candy. For breakfast some people have French toast, waffles, pancakes, eggs, casseroles, quiche, bacon egg muffins, muffins and bagels.

-Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye for about 5 minutes.(use a slotted spoon, wire egg holder or tongs to add and remove eggs from dye.) Be careful when dying the eggs.
