How to bring Easter home to your child

We are about a week away from Good Friday and Easter this year, which fall on April 15 and 17, 2022, respectively. While Good Friday is more closely associated with religion, Easter has a more obscure origin, which is named after an Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, Eostre.

In popular culture, we think more of cute bunnies and the hunt for colored eggs planted by well-meaning parents. On the contrary, Easter can be another way to bring your child’s magic and imagination to life! Don’t worry if you’re not used to celebrating Easter, here’s how to treat yourself!

The most important activity is of course the egg hunt. If you’re the crafty type, you can easily theme Easter with unused baskets and hard-boiled eggs. However, if you don’t have time to basket/boil eggs, you can always replace them with these:
