One of the holidays that marks a major moment for Christians, Easter, is around the corner, and it’s an opportunity for families to come together and make special memories.

The day celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion, and Britannica reports that Christians have been marking it since the 2nd century.

How can families make this a memorable Easter?


Attend a Church Service

With Easter being an important Christian holiday, there is an abundance of church services you can attend to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. You could also gather around the computer and join in with virtual Easter church services streamed live. Some churches even have youth-focused services and activities to celebrate the holiday.



Homeless shelters and soup kitchens often serve Easter dinner on the holiday. Take an opportunity to show your children love and caring in action by heading to a soup kitchen to serve others. You may find that your children get a lot of fulfillment from giving.


Take a hike with family or friends

Easter often takes place as the weather starts to get warmer. Take advantage of the warm weather to celebrate the day. Spend Easter Sunday taking a long walk or hike along a local nature trail.

If you don’t live near a wooded area, you can simply take a walk through your neighborhood with family and friends. For example, instead of driving to your favorite ice cream place, walk or bike there.

Go on a road trip

If everyone is getting a few days off from their work or school schedule, a fun idea for the whole family would be to hop in the car for a road trip full of interesting stops and things to see along the way.

The benefits of going on a family trip include making memories and taking children out of their comfort zones. Sitting at the beach and running into the water isn’t the most educational thing in the world. A normal holiday might teach your kid a few basic skills, but at the end of the day, it’s mostly about having lots of fun. A family road trip is a combination of the two. Your child will have lots of fun, but they’ll learn a huge number of things too. You’ll get to decide how much they learn depending on what you teach them.


Make a special meal together

Cooking meals together fosters moments of closeness with the family and comes with multiple benefits. It is an opportunity to teach your children to cook, create new traditions, and bond.

Children learn healthy habits from time spent cooking together. Many children enjoy activities such as measuring, stirring, adding foods, colouring, kneading, frosting, and smelling things you cook together.

These activities improve motor skills, math, sensory awareness, and creativity. They also reduce picky eating tendencies and teach lifetime healthy eating habits.”


Throw an Easter party

You can get close family friends together for a day or evening of merrymaking and games. Sharing a meal and tasty treats will mark the holiday, and party games will help create long-lasting memories for both adults and children.

Everyone loves a good charcuterie board. For Easter, though, why not hit pause on the classic meat and cheese combo and bring in the bunnies (and marshmallow chicks, chocolate eggs, and more.

For fun and games, you can consider bringing everyone’s minds together for some board games, or you could get everyone involved in a scavenger hunt.


Take photos each year to preserve memories.

Photos can be a fun way to remember the holiday. While having brunch, dinner, or engaging in other activities, bring a camera. Take some great photos to help you remember your Easter memories for years to come.


Easter is a holiday that holds special religious and historical significance for people of the Christian faith. That element is important to many; however, it doesn’t mean that those who aren’t as religious can’t enjoy the cultural and seasonal joys of the holiday as well.

Reading about different Easter celebrations can provide historical context while taking part in different activities can help you create family traditions of your own. No matter what you decide to do to celebrate, the most important part is spending quality time with your family, and respectfully celebrating and honoring what Easter represents.
