Like every holiday, Easter comes and goes in a flash. It’s not as crazy as the winter holiday season, but there’s still a hustle and bustle in the air. There’s pressure to find the perfect Easter morning outfit for our little ones, take cute pictures of the kids with the Easter bunny, go on that neighborhood Easter egg hunt, visit the Easter brunch your friend is hosting, and of course — put together a picture-perfect Easter basket for the kiddos.
With all of the “to-dos,” the true meaning and celebration of the Easter season can get lost. Here’s how to make it more meaningful.
Focus on What's Important
As a family, decide what’s most important to you this Easter. Then, focus all of your Easter festivities around it!
Instead of trying to do every last Eastery thing, simplify and only do what’s most important. Choose just a few things for baby’s Easter basket, pick 1 or 2 fun Easter crafts instead of feeling like you have to do them all…
Start a New Tradition
Traditions create fond memories and warm feelings. Start a new tradition that you and your family can look forward to each year!
Make it Fun
However you decide to celebrate Easter this year, make it fun! A silly gift in the Easter basket or a simple Easter egg hunt in your living room can be so delightful!
Make it Memorable
Think about what you did last Easter. Can you remember? If not, do something different this year! Think about what will be the most special for your family…
When we put our own creativity into what we do, we appreciate it so much more. Your Easter will be much more meaningful when you add your special touch to each thing you do as a family…
Involve the Entire Family
Sometimes, new mamas can take on too much and wind up doing it all themselves. Instead, involve the troop! Have your kiddos help with the cooking and decorating. Assign your significant other to hide the eggs or help pick out the Easter outfits. Doing things together is always better…
Most importantly, don’t stress. Easter should NOT be stressing you out. It should be fun, relaxing, and memorable. It should be a time for family and rebirth and celebration!
