Celebrating Easter Week: Part One!

We’re celebrating Easter this week! We figured just one post filled with Easter craft, recipe, and activity ideas wouldn’t be quite enough, so we’ll be posting a few throughout the week. Easter (and Springtime) is a wonderful time of year, and it serves as a perfect segway into teaching your children that it’s more than a day about eggs, candy, and bunnies, and rather about the beauty and renewal of life, and the true meaning behind the much-loved holiday.

The first idea we have for celebrating Easter week is to let the Easter Bunny pack your child’s lunch before they head out for school! If your children are home for lunch during the week, homeschooled, or just aren’t yet of school-age, this idea still works! Either way, it’ll be wonderful surprise for them, and will be something they will remember for years to come. This is a perfect way to pack your child’s lunch the entire week before Easter, or just a day or two before Easter — you decide!

Instead of packing your child’s lunch using typical tupperware or sandwich baggies to hold your child’s lunch items, get creative and let the Easter Bunny pack it instead! Head over to your local Target, Walmart, or Dollar Tree, and pick up some assorted multi-size plastic Easter eggs, like the ones shown above. Larger is better! The eggs will serve as containers to house the various components of your child’s packed lunch.

Fill the biggest egg with a sandwich, cut in half. Depending on the size of the egg, you might need two for each half. Fill the smaller eggs with other edible lunch surprises: grapes, fruit snack gummies, crackers and cheese, goldfish, teddy grahams, carrot sticks, animal crackers, or whatever their favorites are! Just make sure to fill enough eggs to create a balanced lunch that will keep your little loves full throughout the day. Throw all the eggs into their lunchbox, and be prepared for a lot of happy, excited faces when they realize the surprise!

Stay tuned to our blog this week for a few more ideas to celebrate Easter with your family and little ones!
