In my opinion, Easter should the most celebrated holiday for Christians. Every year I feel like Easter gets under-celebrated. The build up and hoopla around Easter just don't measure up to Christmas. So this year I'm digging in and finding some (last minute) ideas and potential traditions for making more out of Easter.
Decorate! Grab some durable decorations - I usually buy one or two new ones per year. I also love these classy and affordable decorating ideas.
Play some Easter music and movies for kids.
Do this Easter Advent Calendar with free printables (example below) by Karrie at HappyMoneySaver. You can print them and put them into numbered plastic eggs or make a legit calendar out of them if you are more crafty.
Read the Easter Story - we have this board book, which is good for the younger ones.
Resurrection Sticky Buns
I love the symbolism of the empty tomb.
Easter Breakfast Eggs
I also love these colored deviled eggs - however, being that I would eat the dyed parts I'd rather go with natural dyes. Here's some ways to naturally dye eggs, and a few more natural dyes here but they might add some unexpected flavors. And here's what sounds like a better recipe from the Food Network.
Easter Story Napkin Rings by Lacy at CatholicIcing.
This website has the Easter story colorfully written on numbered printables that can be used as napkin rings or place settings. At dinner each person reads a part of the story. She also has these awesome empty tomb treats... a good fit for the cooking/crafting challenged like me.
