We have the wonderful opportunity to partner together with Sugardoodle and share a few Easter ideas with you. There are six amazing designs, but the two that really spoke to me are Heidi Swapp‘s envelopes that tell the Easter story.
and prints from Persnickety Prints.
I will start with Heidi’s design.
I thought it would be fun to do an Easter Doorbell Ditch, but with a twist. Instead of the normal goodies you would leave at the door, I included a story to share with the family about the meaning of Easter and then had an Easter Egg Hunt ready for them. This is the story I included, but you can search for many at lds.org depending on the ages of the recipients. We also hid 12 eggs around our neighbors yard filled with treats, but left one egg empty to symbolize Jesus’ empty tomb for “He is Risen”. We left the Easter egg hunt instructions and the completed Heidi Swapp envelopes at the door in a cute basket. To make your own envelopes go here for the printables.
I wish we could have stayed to see their faces, but I’m sure they will be excited about the surprise!
I included the doorbell ditch instructions and also my printable of “He is Risen” in case you wanted that, too.
For further inspiration you can watch this sweet video by Heidi Swapp.
I also wanted to have a fun activity for my family to get excited for Easter. I thought a scavenger hunt would be fun! Persnickety Prints have these absolutely adorable prints you can download. I chose the cute bunny face for our scavenger hunt. I added the clues to the back and hid them where they were supposed to go. Here are the printables:
I wish you could have seen the kid’s faces! They just loved this and even made up their own hunt to keep the fun going!
I included a download of the cards and clues I used. You should be able to print them double sided and the clues will match the bunny faces.
I had some treats at the end, nothing huge, but still full of fun and the Easter spirit.
To end I wanted to include a little message from the LDS church. It shares a bit about what Easter is and what our Savior wants for us. It’s something you can share with your children to bring the Easter Spirit into your home.
