As my kids get older I’m realizing more and more just how important the time we spend together is. Today I’ve gathered up 5 fun Easter traditions you can start with your family. Some of the traditions will help your family focus on the true meaning of Easter, while others are just for fun.
5 Easter Traditions to Start this Year

Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt
- Plastic Easter Eggs – medium – large size work best
- Glow Sticks – smaller ones that fit into your Easter eggs
Easter Bunny Foot Prints
Cut out the bunny foot print template and leave a trail around your home. I’ve seen people using powdered sugar, flour, baking soda or baby powder for footprints. Just keep in mind any pets you may have in your home and their safety.
- Hershey’s chocolate squares
- Graham crackers
Place graham crackers, chocolate and a peep as shown in first picture. Zap in the microwave until soft. (Or place under broiler.)
Top with another graham cracker square.
Easter Egg Pancakes
- Pancake recipe – this is our recipe for fluffy pancakes but any recipe or mix will do the job
- Food color
Divide your pancake batter into smaller bowls to dye different colors before cooking.
Mini Egg Cookies
Mini Eggs are delicious just the way they are and I am a huge fan of them. I can’t get enough of them. If you are looking to spread them out though make some cookies. Two of our favorite ways to enjoy them, as cookies and not straight out of the package, are:
To use them in place of jam in Thumb Print Cookies. A little dot of chocolate or vanilla frosting to hold them in place.
Use them in place of chocolate chips in Chocolate Chip Cookies. You might want to go a little lite on the mini eggs because they are a lot of chocolate.
