Easter Tips

If you hide eggs for an Easter Egg hunt make sure you know how many you started with and where you hid them all. It’s no fun to realize you missed one because you start smelling a rotten egg. It’s also no fun to deal with a melted chocolate mess because plastic eggs filled with chocolate got hot in the sun.

If you plan on dying or decorating eggs, make sure they are hard-boiled properly. This will allow them to last a little longer, and they are still safe to eat on Easter Morning.

Watch the sugar intake of young children. Don’t let them eat all of the chocolate bunnies and jelly beans they are given. Set some limit on what is allowed.

Dressed up kids and families are great for Easter Sunday services, just don’t expect the perfect appearance to last much past having a picture taken. Allow the kids to be kids and dress them in something that is cute, but that is also comfortable.

Take the time to color Easter eggs with your kids. Sit around the kitchen table and do it together as a family. It's a lot of fun and a great creative activity. Your children will cherish the tradition and look forward to it every year at Easter time.

Cool Re: Easter Tips

To minimize the risk of spoilage, never leave colored hard-cooked eggs outside the refrigerator for more than two hours. And throw them away pronto if they get cracked! Better still, use plastic eggs for Easter egg hunts; fill them with jelly beans, SweeTarts, Skittles or other non-melting candies to reduce the risk of chocolate mess!

While a pretty addition for your Easter decorations, Easter Lilies are very poisonous to cats. So if you own a cat, be sure to keep it far away from these flowers as even just one petal can cause severe poisoning. If your cat starts vomiting or appearing "depressed", contact your veterinarian right away.

Easter decorations do not have to be elaborate. You can make a pretty wreath using a basic twig wreath from a craft store and a bag of plastic eggs from the dollar store. Glue on the eggs and a pretty bow and then hang it up.

A great way to make your kids work for their gifts on Easter morning is to have them hunt for them. Hide clues in plastic eggs around the house that lead them to their candy and gift.

Let your little girl decorate her own Easter Bonnet. She can help you to attach ribbon and flowers to a plain straw or white hat. If necessary the adult can hot glue on what is going on with the little girl saying where. If she feels involved, then she may just wear the hat for the day – proudly showing off her creation.

If you decide to use hard-boiled eggs for an Easter Egg hunt, make sure you COUNT the eggs both BEFORE AND AFTER the hunt, as well as making notes as to WHERE you have left all the eggs. You'll want to know how many you started with, and how many were found, in order to avoid the potential of the scent of rotting eggs throughout your house afterwards!

To add festive flare to a floral centerpiece, dye water in a vase before putting white flowers in. This is another fun activity to engage your children in as they will get a kick out of watching the pedals change color right before their eyes! This will completely transform a bouquet of flowers.

You may find that young children will have a blast having easter egg hunts inside the house with plastic eggs in the days following Easter. Be sure to let THEM have some turns trying to hide the eggs as well for an interesting change.

Default Egg Fights

Egg fights are not exactly what they sound like. It is a Mediterranian tradition among Christians to have "egg fights" on and after Easter. One person takes a dyed, hard-boiled egg and holds it in her hand with the pointy end pointing up. Another person takes a dyed egg and taps the point of it into the point of the other person's egg. The person whose egg doesn't crack is the winner and goes on to play the next contender until there is only one winner left! Be sure to choose your egg wisely!

An Easter safety tip, always use one batch of Easter eggs that you decorate and then hide for hunting, then have an entirely different batch for consumption. However, if you want to be extra careful, hide plastic eggs filled with candy in your egg hunt.

Decorating Easter Eggs are a time honored tradition during the holiday. Just make sure that if you plan on eating the eggs that you are coloring that the dye you are using is safe for consumption.

Store all of the decorated eggs that you plan to be eaten in the fridge until the very last possible moment to ensure their freshness and safe consumption.

If you plan on eating the decorated Easter eggs, try to hide the eggs in the most sanitary places possible. You can also put down some colored paper that matches the hiding spot to place the eggs upon. This will help reduce the germs and dirt that can come in contact with the egg when it is outside.

When hiding eggs, avoid places where family pets or wild animals frequent or are likely to find the eggs before the hunt begins.
