For some, celebrating Easter evokes images of children running through their yards for an Easter egg hunt. For others, Easter takes on spiritual significance, where Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter Sunday bring deep religious meaning. For others, it not only means creating the perfect tablescape for Instagram but also impressing their relatives.
Whatever your family’s meaning of Easter, this year’s holiday suggests a different message as we are all sheltering at home. So whether we are religious or not, these unprecedented times give us all the opportunity to take on a more in-depth perspective. It is safe to say, no matter what we have thought of as Easter in the past, we view the holiday with more gratitude. We are thankful for friends, family, and children.
Speaking of children, we love to see their faces on Easter morning. One way to celebrate Easter is to experience joy with children, as they are always a beacon of hope.
Here are some easy crafts to make with children over the weekend. While most stores are closed, you can still get the basics at any Walmart or Target. Try this Easter Terrarium. Most households already have this type of candy on hand, along with Easter grass and a clear glass container. Feel free to improvise. You don’t need to order the exact chicks from Oriental Trading. You can find similar small crafts at any big box store.
If crafts aren’t your thing, here’s an easy dessert for the weekend. Try these super Easy Easter Cookies. All you need is a bag of marshmallows, a box of Rice Krispies, candy melts, and sprinkles.
Best of all, these are crafts and desserts that can impress any relative.
From our family to yours, Happy Easter from Hruby Chiropractic Wellness.
