Fun ideas for celebrating Easter at home
This years easter celebration may look a little different from in previous years. Instead of gathering for church services in the morning and celebrating with a big family dinner, you’re stuck at home due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. Now you have to figure out a way to celebrate Easter at home. Here are some ways to make easter during quarantine a little more fun.
Just because we’re all stuck at home doesn’t mean the reason for the season has changed. If you’re used to spending Easter morning at church, you can still tune in to the services online. Many churches have now made their services available online, whether that’s through a live stream or through a recorded video. If you don’t have a regular place of worship or yours doesn't have streaming available, you can always ‘visit’ another church online.
Another idea to make Easter feel like ‘Easter’ is by dressing in your Easter finest. Dress the kids up, wear your easter dress and do your hair. Then, FaceTime of video chat with the family to show off your festive wear. Last but not least, don't forget Easter dinner. Even if you cant gather with extended family today, you can still make a delicious Easter dinner with all of your favourites. End it with a scrumptious dessert to really make the day complete.
