The Easter weekend is finally upon us. We could not be happier to begin celebrating. He is RISEN! As mentioned yesterday in this post, we love doing fun family crafts together on Easter weekends. I always want to make sure the girls know why we celebrate Easter. Also, it is always so much fun to add in other sweet Easter activities.
The Saturday before Easter, we always have an extended family Easter cook-out along with a huge egg hunt.
My aunt comes up with old-fashioned games such as the sack race, egg toss and you should see everyone’s faces filled with delight.
I look forward to this tradition every year. It is a time where family comes together and enjoys everyone’s company.
We all relax and get in our PJ’s. It is time to gather around the table and dye Easter eggs. This is usually a tradition of just the four of us. It is sweet memories with our girls.
The girls get all tucked into their beds and excitedly wake the next morning to see what the Easter Bunny left during his bunny hop down the trails.
We usually do not go overboard with the Easter baskets. Just enough fun little goodies for the girls. This year, we are excited to add Hershey’s to the baskets. I was able to meet them at the Blissdom conference in February. They were so nice to let us create our very own unique baskets. They arrived on our door step a couple of weeks later. So, this year we are getting to celebrate with Hershey’s. Check out their Easter site for fun crafts, coloring pages, recipes and puzzles.
We head to Easter Sunday service. I love seeing us all dress up in our new Spring dress apparel. We always grab a picture.
This year, we are doing something new. We are attending sunrise service for the first time with our sweet girls. How awesome it will be to share in this special moment as a family. The girls will also sing during Easter service. We will finish off Sunday morning with a big Easter egg hunt with our church family.
As you can see, we have a fun-filled weekend. We relax as a family on Sunday evening and thanking HIM for our many blessings.
What are your Easter traditions?
