3 Simple Ways to Prepare Your Family for Easter

There is more to Easter than egg hunts and chocolate bunnies. If you are of the Christian faith, this holiday is even more sacred to you. Easter is the Christian celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion. For many Christians, the celebration of Easter is preceded by a 40-day period of penance that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday called Lent.

Whatever you believe, it’s also a time of year that most families come together to spend time with one another.

Here are three simple ways to prepare your family for Easter:

  1. Enjoy the outdoors/nature – Easter makes us think of Spring. If you want to prepare for Easter, try spending some time outdoors. Go to the park, have a picnic, or just go for a walk. See if things are blooming in your area yet.
  2. Spend time with friends and family – Easter is also a great time to come together with the ones you care about. Invite friends and extended family for dinner or game night. Go visit friends you’ve been putting off for a while. Make the time for others.
  3. Talk about the meaning of Easter – This is also a great time to discuss the true meaning of Easter and reflect on your beliefs. Share this with your children. Talk openly. Remember what it’s really all about and be grateful.

Every family celebrates Easter in their own way. We hope that these ideas will help you plan for your own Easter celebration. If something on our list doesn’t sit with how you celebrate and believe, use them as a launch pad to create your own ideas. Do what works for your family. Make your own traditions if you want.

  1. I love sharing with my grandchildren the meaning of all our major holidays, especially Easter and Christmas. I thank God every day that I am his child. This is so important for our little ones. Train them up the way they should go and they will usually always come back to it.

  2. These are some great ideas for families to celebrate Easter together.We usually go to a religious service and have a nice dinner together.

  3. I’m afraid that there is no chance of a picnic here, we still have snow though we did warm up to 0 C today so maybe spring is coming here too. 🙂

  4. I love these ideas. To me, all of the above is what makes Easter so wonderful. My memories of it are being grateful for the new, and enjoying time with family.
