Easter Party Activity: Egg Coloring

Friday April 18, 2014

One of our family's favorite Easter traditions is dyeing and decorating Easter eggs. We like to do this on Holy Saturday, and then set the beautiful, pastel colored eggs out in a bowl for the Easter bunny to admire. Sometimes, he even hides a few of them, along with the plastic eggs he always brings.

If you're looking for a way to spend the Saturday before Easter, why not gather your kids, the neighbors or a couple of friends for an impromptu egg-coloring party? This is a great way to corral some of that pre-holiday energy that often finds kids hopping like bunnies themselves on the eve of this spring celebration.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate. And may all of your spring celebrations be as brilliantly colorful as that bowl of Easter eggs.

Do you have any egg-coloring traditions or tips to share? Please leave a comment, we'd love to hear from you!

Celebrating Passover with Kids

Thursday April 10, 2014

When my first-born was a little girl, she attended preschool in a Jewish Community Center. In the three years she was enrolled there, we learned a lot about Hebrew holidays and celebrations. Of all the events we attended there, the annual seder was the celebration I enjoyed most.

It's been a few years since those celebrations and each year, as Passover approaches, I often reflect and sometimes wish my second daughter had also been able to share in the same rich history and learning experiences as her sister. However, we have since moved to another state where the same opportunities aren't readily available.

If you're lucky enough to have kids with which to celebrate a seder this year, perhaps this collection of tips for celebrating Passover with kids can add to the fun.

Easter Party Games

The ham is in the oven, the egg hunt is over and the kids are ready to tear into those baskets full of goodies. Perhaps some Easter party games are just what you need to get them hopping about something other than jelly beans. And the extra activity may even help them work up an appetite for that dinner you're getting ready to put on the table.

Easter Basket Cake

This Easter basket cake is more than a holiday dessert. It can also be a fun Easter activity when you enlist the kids to help build it.
