If the weather cooperates, you must have an Easter Egg hunt for all ages! We divide folks into age groups to keep the hunt fair and fun, and the different groups hide eggs for the other ones! There is nothing like Grandma running around the yard looking for eggs!
Decorating eggs is a timeless Easter tradition for our family and most families. My husband Johnny blows out the yolks of the eggs prior to decorating them. Some of our favorite eggs are the tiny ones from our sweet bantam chickens! We keep a decorating box filled with ribbon pieces, buttons, sequins, tiny flowers, and a glue gun. We decorate the eggs before Easter and sometimes use them as our placecards on the dinner table.
Every year or so, we all set out on hunt around our farmette for the perfect tree branch to use as the "tree" to tie our precious Easter eggs onto. This can be as fun as picking out a Christmas tree!
Because March is usually the windy month, it is a perfect month to fly kites! Grab your loved ones, a kite or two, and head to a beach, park, or farm field on the next sunny, windy day! Bring a basket of sandwiches, a thermos of hot chocolate or lemonade, depending on the weather, and enjoy the day! Life is so fun when we enjoy each season, whatever it brings!
Keeping it Simple
After Easter brunch, gather around as a family and watch the classic movie Easter Parade. You will marvel at Fred Astaire's dancing and Judy Garland's hats!
