Easter is a special time of year. It’s a celebration of Christ’s resurrection, and it’s also the most important holiday for Christians. But even though Easter is about the birth of Jesus Christ, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the holiday without being religious or taking part in any kind of organised worship services. You can spend time with family members and friends, cook an amazing meal together (or order takeout), or just watch TV while eating chocolate (don’t worry—there will be plenty).
Attend Church Service
Church service is a great way to meet new people and make friends. You can also learn new things, like how to be a better person. It’s important to find comfort in the community of faith, which may help you through times of hardship or uncertainty. Going on religious holidays is also important to help with your faith, connection to god and to also take your children along so they can learn about the Easter story. It is also nice to be around people who also have the same beliefs and interests as you.
Enjoy Easter Dinner with Family
Easter is a great time to spend with your family, it can boost your happiness too. Make sure you have enough food and don’t forget to have some fun with it! You can have a great time by playing games or just sharing stories about what happened on Easter morning. On easter, typically people have lamb for a roast dinner, but don’t feel like you have to, have something you will all enjoy. It is a joyous day to come together and enjoy chocolate, good food and quality family time
Teach Kids About the Story of Easter
There are a lot of ways to teach children about the story of Easter, and it’s important to do so early in their lives. The most important thing you can do is talk about Jesus’ life and death. He came down from heaven, died on the cross for our sins and was raised again by God.
If your kids aren’t old enough yet to understand all these things on their own, introduce them by explaining how people used to worship gods who didn’t care about anyone but themselves before Jesus came along. Then show them pictures or books showing how much better things were when we stopped worshipping those false gods! Then when they are growing up a bit more you can teach them bible verses about Easter.
As they get older (and hopefully wiser), help them see how much better everything would be if we all lived like Christians—not just for ourselves but also for everyone else around us.”
Have an Easter Egg Hunt
You can’t have Easter without eggs! But before you start hunting for them, it’s important to make sure that there aren’t any eggs that have been tampered with.
- Use a basket to collect the eggs and place them in a safe location or hide them somewhere inaccessible by children.
- Have the kids help you hide the eggs around your house so they’re all hidden away from each other’s reach.
- If you want more of an adventure, create a map showing where each egg is located concerning others so that players will be able to find their way back home quickly once they’ve completed their search mission (or perhaps even try another mission).
Have A Easter Bonnet Parade
If you have a big family or a lot of kids in your family you could have everyone make an Easter bonnet, it is something that children sometimes do at school but you could also have a family one on Easter Sunday. After everyone has made theirs and decorated it how they want then you can have a little fashion show where each family member can debut their bonnet. You can then have different prizes for the most creative, best bonnet or cutest.
Make Easter Baskets For Your Neighbours
If you have elderly neighbours who might be lonely on the holiday, you could nip round and see them for a quick chat as well as taking them an easter basket over. You could include things like hot cross buns, chocolate eggs, normal eggs, homemade treats and a card.
There are so many exciting things to do on Easter Sunday that it can be hard to decide which ones to prioritise. You can make it a day for you, do what suits your family best. We hope this list of activities will help you plan your day.
