Easter is on April 5th this year, and spring is just around the corner! There are so many fun Easter activities you can do with your visitor to get into the spirit of spring. Don’t forget to send us your photos if you decide to try any of these fun activities!
First up: decorations! The classic Easter and spring themed decoration is of course the Easter egg. Traditionally, the Easter egg is decorated with colored dyes. Now, there are so many ways you can decorate this symbolic food. If you’re feeling adventurous, try out natural egg dyes from foods you can find in your local grocery store. Beets, purple cabbage, and turmeric combined with white vinegar make for some rich colors which look absolutely beautiful! To get fun designs, try wrapping a rubber band around the egg before dipping it to get some fun stripes, or use water color paints to design your own. For more ideas, click here.
If you’re looking to get out this Easter, there are a lot of Easter egg hunts around Boston ! The North End has a five day Easter egg hunt around the whole area. There are 10 eggs, each of which contains fun prizes and gift cards! This is a wonderful way to get involved with your visitor and teach them about this fun spring holiday. So keep your eyes peeled and good luck!
For some non-traditional ways to celebrate Easter, you can find all kinds of events this spring. Beginning this week is the Revere Spring Carnival. On Good Friday, tickets are sold at a discount, and you can ride unlimited rides for 4 hours! There are all kinds of vendors and rides you can enjoy. It’s a classic U.S. carnival setting and a great way to have fun with your visitor. Another non-traditional activity is the Great Banana Hunt! Head over to Harvard Square and hunt for bananas in the Curious George store!
Lastly, you can always pick up some of the fun candy that is offered in stores during this time of year to share with your visitor!
