The Ultimate At-Home Easter and Passover Roundup

We’re a year into the coronavirus pandemic, and while restrictions are beginning to ease, we still have a long way to go before we can celebrate Easter with massive egg hunts and brunch with the extended family.

It’s definitely a bummer, but it doesn’t have to be. There are still plenty of ways you can have a fun Easter from the comfort of your own home. Check out some of our favorite picks to inspire you and get to planning the ultimate at-home Easter in 2021.  

Easter and Passover crafts

One of the most unique things about Easter is that, outside of church, many family celebrations center around a craft project — coloring eggs.

With the pandemic though, an extra trip to the grocery store means risking your health and the health of those around you. Instead, try some of these fun spring, Easter and Passover craft projects and activities with your kids — some need eggs, but plenty of them don’t.

With all the extra time kids are spending at home these days, sugar overload might not be the best Easter basket option. This year, opt for some non-candy options or perhaps make a few treats together. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
