I love holidays. Because I love building memories for my kids with holiday traditions. Over the past year, the B-Inspired Bloggers have shared their fun family traditions for Halloween, Thanksgiving,Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day. Let’s see what these creative mamas have up their sleeves for family Easter traditions!
14 Fun Easter Traditions – From the Mouths of Moms
1. A Family Easter Egg Hunt
“My wonderful in-laws host a huge Easter egg hunt for all their grandchildren every year. It’s the highlight of spring!” Erin of The Usual Mayhem
2. Visit A Farm
“We do the egg hunt outside if weather allows, or inside. He loves it! We also try to go to a farm around Easter, he loves animals.” Deirdre of JDaniel4′s Mom
3. Grow Magic Jelly Beans
“We grow ‘magic’ jelly beans. Each Easter Saturday, the Easter Bunny leaves some magic jelly beans for us to plant in the garden. We dig a hole, put in the jelly beans, water them, and wait. The next morning, a giant lolly pop has grown in their place.” Ness of One Perfect Day
4. A Bunny Photo Scrapbook
“I’m a total sucker for cheesy, classic traditions to do with kids. Ever since my first child was old enough (he was only a couple weeks old for his first Easter), we’ve been going to the mall to sit with the Easter Bunny and get a picture taken. After just a couple of years, I realized I would be collecting quite a few ‘pictures with the Easter Bunny.’ At first I would put the photos out around Easter in frames, but then I came up with a better plan! I started a scrapbook just for those photos.” Laura of Play Dr. Mom
5. A Big Easter Brunch
“We always have a huge Easter brunch to try to gobble up some of those eggs and ward off the massive chocolate intake!” Erika of Prey Species
6. A Chocolate Scavenger Hunt
“Around here Easter is about a chocolate scavenger hunt at home and at my in-laws house. Here the Easter bunny leaves clues for the girls to find their one ‘big’ chocolate bunny. At my in laws they set up a huge, customized to each child scavenger hunt. Filled with clues, chocolate and toys. We follow the hunt up with a delicious Easter early dinner. It really is a lovely tradition.” Jen of Kitchen Counter Chronicles
7. The Easter Story in Eggs
“[There] is a fun tradition we have been doing for a few years now. It reminds me a little of a Christmas advent, but for Easter. You get 12 plastic Easter eggs and number them 1-12. Inside each egg, write/type out the scripture listed here on small strips of paper and put the small item inside the egg. You can take turns opening them and reading the scripture, showing the prop. The final one is empty, representing the empty tomb.” Karyn of Teach Beside Me
8. Family Egg Dyeing
“The kids wake up to Easter Baskets with a special gift and filled eggs that the Easter bunny has left. Then they peek outside and discover that he has also left empty eggs all over the yard and go on an egg hunt. We follow up with a yummy brunch and egg dying event with all of our family. Easter is not complete without a trip to the mall to take a picture with our friends with the Easter Bunny too!” Kim of The Educators’ Spin On It
9. Grow Easter Grass
“I hate unnecessary plastic and I feel like Easter ‘grass’ is the epitome of unnecessary plastic. It’s not pretty, lacks any kind of real purpose, is not recyclable and it gets tracked all over your house before getting dumped in the trashcan. Last year, we started a tradition of growing our own Easter grass and I love it!” Carissa of Creative Green Living
10. Non-Candy Easter Basket Treats
“We try to come up with non-candy presents for baskets. Things like stickers, chalk, craft supplies and books and cheddar bunny carrots are favorites.” Carissa of Creative Green Living
12. An Easter Tree
“Goblin’s Nanny, my mother-in-law, always has an Easter tree with painted eggs. I like going over there at Easter because its become part of our tradition seeing it.” The Monko of Taming the Goblin
13. Easter Arts & Crafts
“We make a lot of arts and crafts to hang around the house and share with friends as cards. [We also] make some easter cookies for school friends and attend the annual egg hunt organised by our city.” Roopa of Putti’s World
14. A Kid Decorate Bunny Cake
“We started some Easter traditions last year, our favorite being a kid-decorated Easter Bunny Cake (inspired by Think Magnet). I bake the giant cake and ice it, then let the kids at it with tons of coconut and Easter candy. It turns pretty crazy, but it’s so much fun! I hope the kids remember it fondly when they’re all grown up.” Krissy of B-Inspired Mama
