Now that we are weeks into the Pandemic, we are forcing creativity in all new ways as a family, as a community, a country, a world. With Easter around the corner, we are also looking for how to celebrate this year.
Luckily, there are still opportunities to enjoy the Easter holiday; it just requires some imagination and flexibility. Here’s some of the ideas we’re using. Please let us know if you have additional ones!
So far we’ve been able to get eggs consistently at the store. We can still boil eggs and use food dye or even food from the own pantry (think beets, turmeric or onion skins).
No eggs? No problem, you can still order plastic ones from Oriental Trading Company.
Easter Egg Hunt
We are glad that are favorite Easter activity can still take place: the egg hunt. Thankfully, these can still be done indoors, in backyards, or even virtually. Not sure what a virtual hunt is? Use this guide from Country Living to plan one.
Yes, the bunnies are a big deal even for the teens in the house. We are loving these bunnies from Gifts For You Now that are only $10.98 + $4 shipping.
Another huge tradition for Easter is the Easter basket. As a frugal family, we usually spend a few days shopping at different store to build our own baskets as inexpensively as possible. This year, we are using all these Easter coupons for building our baskets.
This is also the year that we may use the gift basket deals to order something special for the grandparents who are struggling with all this time apart from grandkids.
Yes, times are unusual right now, with each day feeling like a mix of Groundhog Day and something completely unknown. However, we are actually excited about Easter and the return of spring and finding the small ways we can still celebrate. How are your families doing? How are you finding ways to celebrate?
