Celebrating Easter At Home Guide


Celebrating Easter at home this year feels a little different, right? Some of us usually stay home and celebrate Easter and some plan big events with family and friends. Churches, organizations, and small businesses have canceled all events to protect our families. #stayathomeorders are in full effect and are cancelling all plans. Huge bummer but let’s look at the bright side this year. We can hang out with immediate family in our home, tune into church services online, and plan our own events in our home!

Easter Story

Easter is a holiday where children anticipate the Easter bunny, egg hunts, peeps, Easter baskets, and jelly beans; I mean I even look forward to those things as well as a mother! But as we all know, Easter represents so much more within the Christian faith. Easter is a time for Christians to remember their Savior, Jesus Christ, who placed our sins on his shoulders, willingly sacrificed his innocent life on the cross, and then three days later rose from the grave. Easter is all about Jesus’ victory over death, and how his resurrection from the grave allows everyone that believes in Him eternal life in Heaven (Matthew Chapters 26-28). So although I believe it is fun to keep that light-hearted part of this holiday alive with fun activities and special goodies for our children, my prayer is that we don’t forget to speak the true meaning of what Easter is all about to our kids. As a Christian parent myself, I know that no gift or surprise on Easter morning will ever compare to the joy in knowing that my children acknowledge what Jesus did for them, and how they get to live within his love forever and always. Happy Easter, mamas!- Mariah Carroll (TM Writer)

Easter Egg Hunt

Have plastic eggs from previous years? Great, use them! If not and you’re comfortable getting out of the house- Kroger, Walmart, Target, and Dollar Store have plastic eggs in stock. GO BEFORE Easter weekend to snag them.

Fill the plastic eggs with candy, change, dollar bills, tiny toys, you can put whatever you want into eggs. Make it fun for the entire family!

One of our sister sites suggested a treasure hunt for eggs. Place a clue in each egg and have them go on a scavenger hunt for all the clues! How fun?!

Easter Photoshoot

As mamas, we get very excited about dressing our children in new Easter outfits. Make your Mama heart happy and dress your precious ones up in their Easter Sunday best and take adorable pictures of your kids that you will look back on and remember this crazy time but how you made the most of it! You can get great pictures on your standard smartphone with these helpful lighting hints from the owner of Caitlin Breann Photography

Outside Tips: 

  • Try to find some open shade (shade being cast off by a building or a tree in your backyard). 
  • Make sure the sun is behind your kiddos. This way they aren’t squinting into the beautiful sun!

Inside Tips:

  • Open up the blinds or curtains in front of a window or door.
  • Make sure your kiddos are facing the window or door for the best light possible.

Chalk Your Driveway/ Sidewalk

One thing that I hope we all remember this year is the true message of Easter. The message of hope, redemption, love for our families and communities. Get some sidewalk chalk and write your favorite encouraging scriptures on the sidewalk in front of your home. Write encouraging messages, let people know you are thinking of them and give them a little hope and happiness as they pass by. If you have no sidewalk to write on do not fret, write encouraging messages and stick them in your windows or on your front door for people to see as they pass by.

Sometimes it takes a jolt from our daily lives to be reminded of all the good things we have going for us. So, this Easter lets all be thankful for a time to #selfdistance ourselves and be with our own families we created. Next Easter, let’s hug a little tighter, appreciate the handshakes, and enjoy simple joys in life.
