Yesterday was the beginning of our four-day Easter weekend, I love long weekends and celebrating holidays and traditions together. Our eldest has the four days off school so we get to spend quality family time this long weekend.
On Friday we spent the afternoon decorating Easter eggs. I was planning to do some colour block Easter eggs or Twine Wrapped eggs but ended up with StarWars Easter Eggs…. we were at the grocery store in the morning and somehow my eldest spotted a StarWars DYI egg decorating kit on sale. He is a HUGE StarWars fan and we ended up buying the kit.
I must say that the kit was nice because it had everything that was needed, including non-toxic egg dye tablets, some fun egg wraps, stickers and cardboard stands.
This morning we headed to Stanley Park and we spent the morning at their Easter event. This has been a yearly tradition for us since our first son was a toddler. They have a nice little Easter Train, an outdoor Easter egg hunt, crafts, games and you can get your face painted and take photos with the Easter Bunny. A fun an very popular event that’s always filled with families.
Both children loved the train and they had a great time finding eggs and collecting them in their baskets. They also each got a little treat at the door when they were done collecting eggs, I love that they even have baskets for the kids and the event is so organized. We also got lucky because it was raining before we got there and it started raining again after we left, we enjoyed our time outdoors while it was dry!
Tomorrow we are planning a very small indoor family egg hunt and a family Easter dinner. Hoping it doesn’t rain all day so we can spend some time playing outdoors, we do live in Vancouver though….I better pack our raincoats and boots!
How do you celebrate Easter? What are your plans for the long weekend?
