Great Ways Of Having Fun On Easter - Chocolate & More Delights

Easter is right around the corner, and you know what that means: it's time to get ready for the most exciting holiday of the year! Easter is also the time for families to spend time together. Here are some great ways to enjoy the holiday. Easter egg hunts, decorating Easter eggs and making Easter baskets are just a few of the fun things you can do to celebrate this wonderful time of year.

1. Decorate Easter Eggs

Decorating eggs has been around since ancient times when people believed that painting their eggs would bring good luck or fertility because of what bird's eggs symbolize: life and new beginnings (like spring time!). You can decorate your eggs using natural ingredients or special Easter egg dye. Many people admire the stunning colors of natural eggs and attempt to reproduce them. The truth of the matter is that nature has a few tricks up her sleeve that you can use to color your own eggs. We have tried a few natural ingredients using Tumeric and Safron for a rich yellow and chili powder and carrots for a deep orange.

2. Participate In An Easter Egg Hunt

There's nothing like a good old-fashioned egg hunt on Easter Sunday. Not only does it remind us of the religious aspect of what Easter is about, but it brings out the little kid in all of us. After decorating your own Easter eggs go hide them. Kids love hunting for eggs and there’s nothing quite like watching their eyes light up when they find one. You can hide the eggs throughout your home or yard and let your kids go crazy looking for them.

3. Make An Easter Basket

If you're looking for a way to spend some quality time with your kids this Easter, then making a DIY Easter basket is the perfect idea. Not only will your kids love it, but you'll also be able to take pride in the fact that you made something special with your own hands. You can use any kind of basket or bag as long as it's large enough to fit all of the items that you want to put inside. If it doesn't already have handles, consider adding some rope or twine so that you can carry it around easily.

4. Bake A Traditional Easter Bread

Baking this traditional Easter bread is a very fun and rewarding experience, since the treat is deeply rooted in European tradition. There are many different ways of baking it. Just like with other homemade baked goods, there are specific rules for creating this holiday delight. Typically, the round-shaped Easter bread is sweet and made with yeast dough, raisins and almond splinters. Usually, it is cut in slices and spread with butter. People enjoy it either for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. Here is a recipe for you to try.

5. Make Your Own Chocolate Easter Eggs

Easter is a welcomed holiday filled with homemade chocolate, decorated eggs and jelly beans of all colors and flavor combinations. When it comes to baking and crafting, some days it seems like a talent is required rather than having the time or knowledge as these activities usually require patience. Apart from enjoying the treats, you will also feel the satisfaction for making your own holiday chocolates. The process is easy to follow but each step is important in producing the final recipe, so be sure to follow instructions carefully here. It will all be worth your while in the end when your family receives their homemade chocolate eggs.

Whether you're celebrating the holiday with family or friends, taking some time off of work, or just relaxing and enjoying spring's arrival—we hope you have a wonderful Easter.
