Holidays are the perfect opportunity to invest in some quality time with our kids; and whether or not we've achieved "Pinterest mom" status, most of us want to go the extra mile to build memories together during these special times of year. As we head into Easter, I've been thinking about how to capture those bonding moments with my sons while also not putting unrealistic expectations on myself. (Full disclosure: I am definitely not a crafty mom.) Searching for ways to celebrate the season without dooming myself to failure, I started asking my friends for Easter ideas for kids that are realistic but also a lot of fun. Some of their suggestions were specific to the Christian faith (in which Easter is observed as the resurrection of Christ), and some were simply secular ways to celebrate the coming of spring.
Knowing that if I make my goals too lofty my best laid plans would either turn out disastrously or I would simply give up and do nothing, I sought to compile a list of the Easter activities that were most realistic for my family. Here are some of the best Easter ideas for children that capture the spirit of the season.
