Can we still have an Easter Egg Hunt?

Every Easter, we gather in large groups for our community Easter Egg Hunts. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, Easter after 2020 is going to be different. Due to social distancing regulations, we’re all being forced to change our traditions.


Social distancing Easter Traditions:

Social Distancing Easter Egg Hunt

An Easter egg may or may not be possible depending on guidelines in your community. A possible option, might be a Social distancing Easter egg hunt.

To participate, everyone in the neighborhood would post colorful pictures of eggs in their windows for kids to find as they walk through the neighborhood. See more details below.

If you can’t get together with family for Easter Dinner, meet virtually and have each family will cook their own meal.

Each family will have their computer at the table while they eat so they can chat with other families. 

Or another option would be to order delivery through DoorDash or another service to each home.

Virtual Easter Game Night

Similar to a virtual Easter Dinner, host your own virtual Easter Game night.

Your family can play games and visit through Zoom, Google Meet, FaceTime or any other teleconferencing apps.

You can also exchange gifts/baskets ahead of time and have everyone look in their basket while meeting virtually.
