The best way to enjoy your Easter weekend is by spending a little extra time with your family. Take a break from the normal Easter egg hunts and try a little something different. Here you will find four ideas for Easter family days out.
Go To Church
Most churches offer special Easter Sunday services and events such as Easter egg hunts and family meals. If you do not usually attend a specific church almost all churches welcome non members on Easter Sunday. If you currently attend a church, instead of going to the services, offer to volunteer the whole family’s help this year.
Visit a Public Park
Pack a picnic, pack some eggs and head to a local park, garden or playground. The picnic does not have to be limited to just the afternoon, you can bring breakfast or even a late night snack and take turns hiding Easter eggs for each other. If you decide to take advantage of the great out doors at the spur of the moment, you can always pick up fast food or sandwiches from the deli counter at almost any grocery store and spare the time of actually preparing a meal to take along.
Spend the Day at a Retirement Home
There are so many elderly people who no longer have families of their own or little to no visitors. As a family, you have each other and get the love and support you need on a daily basis. Share some of your family’s time by spending the day at a retirement home. Spend the afternoon just talking, reading, playing games or just keeping someone company.
Go for a Drive
Sometimes it does not really matter where you are going, but all about the trip while getting there. Take advantage of Easter Sunday to go out with your family. You can go to the next town over, or just take a few side streets and detours in your own city that you do not normally take. The destination is not as important as the conversations you will have with your family and time spent together doing something a little different.
Making Easter a little more fun this year should not be that difficult now that you have four ideas for Easter family days out. Not only can you use these ideas during the holiday season, but for any day of the week that you’d like to do something a little different with your kids.
