Neighborhood Egg Hunt + Other At-Home Easter & Passover Activities!

neighborhood egg huntWhile we can’t have our traditional community Easter egg hunts this year, we can still have some fun with our kiddos and neighbors through a neighborhood “egg” hunt, social distancing style!

Plus, you can enter a chance to win a dozen donuts from Sandy’s Donuts!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Share the idea with your neighbors or in your online neighborhood group (if you have one). 
  2. Decorate or color as many Easter eggs you want to hang in your windows. You can print our egg coloring pages here, or feel free to cut out paper, cardboard, an empty cereal box, or any other item you can find to create an egg shape! 
  3. Hang your eggs in your window for the neighborhood kids to find!

To enter a chance to win a dozen donuts from Sandy’s Donuts, send us a picture of your window eggs to [email protected]. We’d love to see your photos on social media, so make sure to tag @fargomomco and @sandysdonuts, too!

Two lucky winners will be chosen at random on April 10th!

Looking for other fun activities to celebrate Easter at home?

Attend Services Virtually

Get the whole family dressed up, snap a photo, and attend a church service online! Check with your local church to see when and where they are broadcasting their services, or find a list of broadcast services here

Share the Stories behind Easter & Passover

While we all enjoy Easter treats, egg hunts, and visits from the Easter bunny, it’s important to remember the reason we are celebrating. Read the Easter story to your children (Matthew Chapters 26-28) and take the time to discuss the reason for the day with them. There are many other Easter-themed children’s books online!

You can find ideas for Passover books and activities for children here!

Decorate Spring Cookies

A few local baker’s are selling cookie decorating kits that would make for a fun family activity!

Buttercream Bliss is selling paint your own sugar cookie kits. Pick up on Friday, April 10th at Vintage Vines Kitchen in Horace (delivery can be arranged for an added charge).

Cakes by Althea is selling Spring Cookie Kits for $20, and includes 12 cookies, 3 icing colors, and 3 different kinds of sprinkles. Order and pick up at the drive-thru at Thunder Coffee.

Jen’s Bakery is offering a cookie decorating kit. Delivery available for an added charge. 

Maggie Mae’s Sugar & More is also selling Sugar Cookie Kits.

Egg Hunt

Bust out those plastic eggs and have an egg hunt in your house or your backyard. Don’t have plastic eggs? Use other objects you have around the house! Ideas include painted rocks, stuffed animals, or colored eggs hung or hidden around the house. 

Dye/Decorate Easter Eggs

If you are lucky to have a packet of egg dyes or food coloring at home, you can easily follow the directions or find instructions here. If you don’t have either of those on hand, get creative with household items! Use crayons, sharpies (for older kids only, of course), school glue and tissue paper, newspaper, or glitter, stickers, kids’ tattoos, or any other items you can find!
