While most of us may have traditions we adhere to each and every year for the holidays, perhaps 2021 is a year you try something new. Things are definitely different than in years past with the pandemic, but there are some great ways to make the best of these times with you and yours.
With springtime arriving around the corner and Easter coming up, here are four unique ideas for how you and your loved ones can celebrate this holiday:
1. Go on a trip
Traveling is certainly controversial during these times but there are ways to travel without too much exposure and places you can go where you don’t have to be near too many people. From camping destinations to unique cabin lodging, you can take this time to enjoy the beautiful spring weather to road-trip with your loved ones to your favorite destination. Plus, with it being springtime, it’s a great time to check out some plants for Easter wherever you go. Make sure to follow the CDC recommendations by using masks and hand sanitizer and limit your outings to places that aren’t too populated. A safe road trip can make for making memories you and your family won’t soon forget.
2. Make favorite snacks
From chocolate fondue and marshmallows to sugar cookies shaped like bunnies, there are so many different snacks that fit in with the Easter theme. No matter the age of your kids, whether they’re tots or teenagers, everyone loves a good snack. From salty to sweet, there are so many different options for you and your family to choose from when preparing for Easter goodies. Whether you plan to play board games or go on a road trip, you’re going to need snacks, won’t you?
3. Pull out the board games
Is anyone in your family competitive? If so, spending the Easter holiday at home could be the perfect time to have some fun with friendly competition by bringing out the board games. What are your family’s favorite go-to games? From UNO to Catan, there are so many options to choose from. Who says you have to pick just one? Maybe your family is more of a video-game type family—whatever is a bonding experience for you and yours, choose that.
4. Enjoy water activities
With winter limiting any water activities you may want to try, why not get out there now? With time to spare on the holiday, it could be a great opportunity to get some fresh air. Whether you’re located near rivers, lakes, or simply a few nearby ponds, consider enjoying a day out in the sun with water and fun to be had by all. Bring along a picnic and enjoy celebrating everything that is spring. While water parks may be a lot of fun, because of current circumstances, it may be challenging to find ones that are open or at a limited capacity you could be comfortable with, so look for natural watering-holes instead.
5. Set up your living room for a photoshoot
If all else fails and Easter has decided on being a rainy day, you can still have a great time indoors. Consider setting up a fancy photo booth to take pictures of you and your family. After all, we all love a holiday picture. There are plenty of great photo booth ideas for Easter that can make for a fun experience and memories you can look back on. Plus, you’ll get the family in their best outfits, and after months of staying home and maybe letting ourselves go a bit, this could be a fun occasion to spruce up. Get everyone involved with the preparation and make it a fun family affair.
Easter Holiday Fun!
While we may all miss the way of life before 2020, we have learned to adapt to the new normal. These Easter ideas may not be your typical ones but they can definitely bring some joy to everyone in your family.
