Make Hot Cross Buns
The tradition of hot cross buns is thought to go back as long ago as the 12th century! As with all good traditions, there are several theories about how the recipe came about, but what we do know is that they are delicious! A yeast roll that is slightly spiced, studded with currants or raisins, and scored on top in the shape of a cross, hot cross buns are thought to have been made by monks and served on Good Friday. Find a delicious recipe here as well as more background details about this mouthwatering tradition. Also, in case you missed it, we have a delectable Easter Coconut Cake recipe posted on our blog if you are looking for a delicious spring dessert.
Create an Easter Tree
A longstanding German tradition to decorate the branches of trees and bushes with eggs, happily the tradition of the Easter tree is catching on in many parts of the United States. Create your own unique tree indoors with branches or an artificial tree. This is completely customizable! Decorate it with symbols of the holiday, handmade ornaments, or jelly beans and candy. Have fun! Here are some ideas to get you started.
Shake Up the Easter Egg Hunt
There are so many variations on the traditional Easter egg hunt! What about filling a few plastic eggs with fun activities or in-person rewards jotted on colorful slips of paper? Maybe a night-time hunt after filling eggs with glow sticks? Perhaps consider hiding the pieces of a new puzzle in each plastic egg? Check a few more ideas out here!
