Here’s a list of Easy Easter Ideas at home for our families this year!
April doesn’ look like anything any of us had hoped for or planned on….
I know lots of us are super bummed… I have no problem admitting that this has been hard for me.
One thing I’m determined to do, is to still make Easter special for our family.
I know it won’t look the same, there won’t be new outfits and fancy church services, Family BBqs or giant egg hunts BUT there are some pretty fantastic and creative ways to still celebrate the season and remember Jesus!
One thing that hasn’t changed (maybe the only thing) is that God loved us so much that HE gave HIS only Son Jesus so that anyone who believes would have Eternal Life! AND not only did HE die for our sins, He conquered death and the grave and gave us NEW RESURRECTED LIFE when he rose from the grave!!!
And THAT will always be a reason to celebrate!!!
I thought I’d share some Easy Easter Ideas
I’ve gathered a list, some we do every year, most are ideas I’m possibly trying this year. And most of them have been found on Pinterest. (I”ll share the original pin where I can)
Some of these links are a part of my affiliate with Amazon.com. Thank you for supporting Loveandscribbles by shopping through them!
and a cute book to go with them!
My Mom bought us a set like this awhile ago. The boys always love to go through the eggs.
The book BENJAMIN”S BOX is a story you can read while you open each egg!
Easter Egg Hunt
If you are doing an Easter Egg hunt here are some ideas:
a. We always hide an empty egg (really cool if it’s a sparkly gold one) and when we find it, we tell the kids that it is representing the empty tomb!
b. This idea from smartschoolhouse.com is really neat. and I think we’ll get some tea lights to do this for 2020. This is also really cool for when it inevitably is freezing cold and rainy on Easter… we can hide them inside and turn off the lights!
Since most of us have plenty of time this Easter, Why not a scavenger hunt to find the eggs/Easter baskets?
This one even has ideas for teens too!

Empty Tomb Rolls
I love these rolls!! Here is a great recipe and tutorial over at aroundmyfamilytable.com. You can bake them together while telling the story and then enjoy a treat once they are baked and you open them to find the empty “tomb”
