Easter is perhaps one of the most anticipated religious celebrations of the year by Latino families. In addition to being the time when life is celebrated, it is also one of the times when all members of the family have the opportunity to get together and enjoy time at home.
Of course, spending time with the little ones at home can be quite a challenge, since their energy is inexhaustible. But do not worry, here we share some ideas so that both they and you have an unforgettable and fun time during Easter.
Nothing better than an afternoon with the little ones to see a movie! Of course, although there are some family titles with themes related to Easter, the options for animated films to have a good time with the boys are limitless.
Many times the best choice is to watch one of those movies that the little ones love, even if they have seen it on several occasions. The classics from Disney, Pixar or Dream Works will never go out of style and it is certain that from the smallest to the oldest, they will spend an afternoon of charm. Add some snacks that everyone enjoys and voalá!
For many, the best way to spend a fun afternoon with the family and at the same time stimulate children's creativity is through crafts.
Cut out, paint, color, build … The options are limitless, but you can start with some simple ideas that are perfect for this Easter season. How about a session of decorating Easter eggs, create with some elements that you have at home some funny Easter bunny ears or a painting session in which everyone transforms their faces into those of a bunny?
Of course, there is no better way to entertain the kids than by playing with them and here are three fun game ideas that will make everyone compete and laugh.
You can start with the traditional Easter egg hunt (yes, you can use the same ones they decorated). Add some excitement with some special prizes.
Another simple option is to do an obstacle course in which everyone competes carrying an egg (previously boiled) on a plate, the idea is that each contestant completes the circuit without dropping the egg on the floor. Who can do it faster?
Our third option also includes an egg. This time, you can do a competition where everyone has to tour the house by pushing an egg across the floor, but the only way to push it is with the nose!
In the kitchen:
Cooking is not one of the favorite activities of boys, but it only takes a little twist to this activity to transform it into an unforgettable afternoon for them.
Preparing biscuits with figures such as bunnies or creating cupcakes to decorate with Easter motifs (sheep, flowers, etc.) will undoubtedly transform your kitchen into the favorite place for children at home.
Don't forget these little changes in traditional recipes to make these dishes healthier and lower in sugar. Use almond flour and maple syrup in exchange for regular flour and refined sugar.
