Easter is more than just chocolate eggs and bunnies. It’s a time of reflection, renewal, and traditions that go beyond the sweet treats. Here are some Easter traditions to consider:
1. Hot Cross Buns
Hot Cross Buns are a traditional Easter specialty that have been enjoyed for centuries. They are sweet, spiced buns with a cross on the top. While they are delicious on their own, they are even better toasted with a bit of butter. To add some protein, try 1 for breakfast with a YoPro or Chobani Fit yoghurt to keep you feeling satisfied for longer. Better yet try our Protein Hot Cross Bun recipe with the kids.
2. Easter Egg Hunt
The Easter Egg Hunt is a classic Easter tradition that is loved by all ages. Hiding eggs around the house or garden and seeing who can find the most is a fun way to celebrate the holiday. For a twist, try hiding clues that lead to the eggs instead of just placing them out in the open. As parents, it is easy to get excited and over buy on the chocolate which means the cupboard stays full well beyond Easter. Try and plan ahead to enjoy and share but not have enough to last until next year! For little ones who don’t know about chocolate yet, keep it that way and utilise the many pretend eggs and bunnies you can now buy (or make) which is still an exciting way to enjoy the festivities.
Gardening is an enjoyable activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. You can make the most of your long weekend by visiting your local nursery and inquiring about plants that are suitable for this season’s growth.
4. Easter Crafts
Making Easter crafts is a fun way to get creative and celebrate the holiday. You can make Easter cards, decorate eggs, or Easter hats. Crafting is a great way to spend time with family and friends and create lasting memories.
Hopefully, the sun is shining to enjoy some outside games like the egg and spoon race, wheel barrow runs, sack races and the single leg hop tied to a friend race. Any age can have a go and you can guarantee a lot of laughs!
