Frugal Easter Family Fun

In addition to crafting, perhaps your family might enjoy some frugal Easter fun as well.

  • If the weather is nice, try taking a walk outdoors at a park or around your backyard. Plus, while you’re enjoying the outdoors, pick up sticks, rocks, or other objects which you can create three-dimensional nature art with. Children will enjoy using sticks to make a mouth or rocks for the eyes. The found objects can also be used in a nature display. Please note: it’s important not to take bird nests out of the trees or take wild animals from their habitat.
  • Use egg dye and decorate Easter eggs together. There are some parts of the hard-boiled egg dye process which will require adult supervision but the Easter egg decorations themselves can be done by the children. See which child can come up with the most unusually decorated eggs.
  • Spend time together as a family to come up with the menu for a great Easter family meal. Ask everyone who is able to cook to prepare one dish. One person could prepare the meat course, someone else a vegetable dish, someone a salad, and someone else a dessert. Maybe even ask someone to prepare a special flavored punch for the meal.
  • Share what you have with a family in need. This may mean opening your home to invite them to Easter dinner or making Easter baskets to take to the family’s children. If you help a family in need to make their day special, your entire family is more likely to remember the day.
  • Encourage the children of the family to help make Easter decorations. Use the decorations for your home and if you have extras you can give some to grandparents, aunts and uncles, and other family. You may also want to share some with the family in need so they have something to decorate their home.
  • Host a neighborhood Easter egg hunt rather than simply having one for your own family. Ask other families in the neighborhood to help by either purchasing the plastic eggs, providing candy (such as jelly beans), or providing refreshments for the event. The hunt may become a favorite part of the neighborhood’s celebration each Easter.

These tips for frugal and memorable Easter family fun are by no means the only things you can do.

The easiest thing to do would be to ask your family what would make the holiday more memorable for them. Then take the time to make those activities happen.
