This Easter Weekend, why not go outside for a walk or hike
What better way to celebrate the beginning of spring …well by going on a nice nature walk that is!
The ground is thawing, the snow is melting, and the days are longer. Easter is a time to celebrate the changing seasons and appreciate flora and fauna springing up again. We’re lucky enough to live in a part of the world where cherry blossoms and magnolia trees will soon begin to bloom this time of year, so just going for a walk around the block lets us appreciate
spring-time renewal. There are likely trails in your area, and you can go breathe the fresh air, enjoy the blooming flowers, and have a good conversation with those around you.
But if there is no Springtime renewal…
We also live in part of the world that is still cold or frozen this time of year and the weather may be unpredictable. Walking around the block or a nearby park may not be the nicest way to spend time.
Instead, visit garden centres and indoor gardens to get your fix of nature.
Why not visit an indoor ‘Butterfly Conservatory’ or ‘Bird Kingdom’ ?
Easter egg hunts
How could an Easter ideas post be complete without mentioning Easter egg hunts?
We consider Easter egg hunts to be part of celebrating Springtime renewal.
These usually involve children finding eggs scattered in a field or yard, and the eggs are usually filled with candy or small toys.
You could make it into more of a scavenger hunt, taking yourself on a tour of your city to find “Easter eggs” of places you didn’t know about before.
Decorating Easter eggs
Easter weekend is paint or dye eggs.
This is such a fun activity to do with kids, especially. They have so much fun learning about colours and mixing their own! There are many egg dying kits that come with bright, vibrant colors and even stickers you can use to decorate your eggs with. Kids really seem to enjoy this activity, and adults can have fun with it too. Get creative and use different color combinations and designs for some extra fun.
