6 Tips To Prep For Your Epic Easter #CatholicCentral #EasterTraditions (& Giveaway Ends 4/26)

I received product/compensation in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

Easter is the time for my family where we celebrate new life and transformation. After a rough winter, I am always excited for watching everything start growing and changing in the spring.

Some of my family’s Easter traditions are classic and simple ones:

We hunt for eggs. We have been to places for egg hunts but my kids love the simple one we do at home, even better when we can hide the eggs outside because the weather is nice. The fun part though is when my husband and I sit and match the eggs and fill with jelly beans….said no mom ever…

We decorate eggs. While I dread egg decorating, my kids love it. Luckily this year I got The Eggmazing Egg Decorator which means no worrying about cups of dye spilling over. Now if only I didn’t have to boil the eggs too…

We eat Peeps. Yes we love our Peeps and this is the only time of the year we end up getting them.

We have a big family dinner! We host everyone at our house and look forward to easter ham!

Speaking of food, we also make a lamb cake. Yes it looks terrible but I promise it tastes delicious! My kids like to decorate it though probably more than they eat it!

Oh and is it even Easter without the creepy bunny picture? I couldn’t find one with my kids but here is one of me and my brothers!
