How to Celebrate Easter While Sheltering in Place

No doubt you probably had a great plan for all the Easter egg hunts you were going to hit up in the next week. It may require a little extra work, but we’ve found a few ideas from around the web for egg hunts at home that will keep you and your family entertained. Pro tip: fill a few specially marked eggs with prizes for adults only. You’re never too old for a little fun or an egg full of cash.

We’ve also worked with our local boutiques to bring you cute gifts, Easter decor and new Easter outfits to celebrate the day, even if it is only your family in your own back yard or connected to your friends and cousins via Zoom.

Have a Backyard Picnic

Take all your tasty treats, drinks and favorite blankets to the back yard and have an Easter picnic with the family. My family and I love spending as much time outside as we can – it’s the only thing keeping us all sane. I recently posted a guide on my personal blog, Reese’s Hardwear, detailing how to have an Easter picnic utilizing the items you already have around the house. If you’re looking to try something different for this year’s Easter celebrations, a casual backyard picnic might be the right choice.
