Easter is my son’s favorite holiday. I never would have suspected it. I would have thought he’d pick Halloween or Christmas or even his own birthday. Easter? Really?
After we talked about it though, it all made sense. Have you thought about secular Easter (spring equinox) traditions and how absolutely perfect for kids they are?
You get to decorate eggs. Not only do you get to decorate eggs, but you are supposed to decorate eggs. It’s messy. It’s fun.
Egg hunt. Part of Easter is hiding and finding stuff. It’s like a game! A game that you are supposed to play!
After you successfully find a bunch of eggs, you then get to find an Easter basket. An Easter basket filled with candy! Candy that you can eat!
Art, play and candy? It’s the holy trinity for kids.
