Creating Easter traditions in a new home
In the first of our new guest blog posts, Gemma Pearson of https://mamatophoeberose.wordpress.com shares how she created a new Easter family tradition in her new Keepmoat home.
With Easter just around the corner, it’s a time for eating a Sunday roasts, indulging in lots of chocolate eggs and family get togethers.
Easter is a special occasion where you have time to spend with your nearest and dearest, and with the arrival of our beautiful baby girl, Phoebe Rose, in May 2018, it’s the perfect time to start a new family tradition.
For Phoebe’s first Easter we wanted to create a tradition that would carry through her childhood and beyond and what better way than with an Easter egg hunt in a brand new home – you don’t need much, just a box of colourfully wrapped chocolate eggs will do, and if you have time, you can create some signs and hints to help them find the delights.
An Easter egg hunt is perfect for the whole family to enjoy and to say Phoebe isn’t quite one yet, she certainly had an ‘egg-cellent’ time and pretty much found them all (with the help of Daddy of course!). We hid some in the house, some in the garden, and even a couple in Mammy and Daddy’s bedroom, although we may have forgotten to check there... or maybe it’s a cheeky Easter treat for us later on!
Watching our little pink Easter bunny toddling around the house and garden, looking for eggs filled me with so much pride and has given us a wonderful family tradition that we can do every year and will fill our home with so many special memories – and afterwards, we can all snuggle up and enjoy Phoebes chocolatey winnings!
It’s brilliant how much fun your little ones can get at home – from dressing up, blowing bubbles and hunting for colourful little chocolate eggs – all at nominal expense. Easter is about enjoying time with your family with an activity where everyone can join in and there’s an added bonus when you can do it in the comfort of your own home - perfect!
We wish everyone beautiful Easter, filled with lovely moments and special traditions!
