Listen, I know that Easter is not about decorations. The holiday is about Jesus who saved humanity and somehow we have managed to turn it into a holiday full of chocolate rabbits and eggs. Some people find it disrespectful but there’s no harm in having fun while celebrating Jesus. And what is more fun than decorating?
You get to make your living space more fun and fortunately, there’s a whole decorating industry that will provide the needed decoration for your Easter home makeover. Get those colorful bunnies and put them around the house to bring up the Easter spirit. The younger members of the household will love it and the family will get another fun memory that will strengthen the family bonds.
8. Cook together
We talked about eating together as a trust-building family act but now, we’re going to discuss the process of getting that food on the table. Let’s begin by saying that in most households not all members of the family cook. But that’s okay. Cooking together is all about the attitude towards it and the participation. As long as the family is preparing the celebratory food together, the goal is accomplished.
So don’t worry if you are not the best cook. Just go and be with your family. They will help you and when the food is ready you can be proud that you were a part of the process.
9. Have an Easter-themed photo session
Okay, this is a bit untraditional but hear me out. Photos are a great way to capture the moment. And since Easter is usually a happy holiday, an Easter-themed photo session can capture great memories that will become a part of your living room décor for everyone to see.
And no you do not need a photographer- just an inexpensive tripod off Amazon and your phone. And just like that you can create your own family photoshoot which you can edit and put in some exciting backgrounds and elements!
10. Learn some Easter history
And the final advice is actually learning something about the holiday. Beyond the chocolate, eggs, and lamb Easter has a 2 thousand-year history that is worth learning. As a family, this is a good way to educate both the younger and older members of the family. To make it even better, you can do research together and finally place the pieces of the story together.
Learning together is a very well-known bonding exercise so you get to learn something new whilst creating memories to cherish.
And to finish off…
This Easter is a time to reflect, rest and spend time with family and friends. Giving this time to strengthen your relationships is worth it, family and friends are often those who will be there for you through thick and thin. Just like plants these also need watering and attention.
So get inventive about how to keep the magic with loved ones alive this Easter.
