The Easter holiday generally coincides with the arrival of spring. And as I have previously discussed in a couple of my blog posts, there’s no better time for you to spend quality time with your family than during Easter. Shake off the winter doldrums and welcome the coming of spring with your family through these simple yet fun ways to strengthen ties between you and your loved ones.
Hit the road

If you’re limited in your finances and can’t afford a trip abroad, then road trips are definitely a great and inexpensive way to ignite the spirit of adventure within your family. There are plenty of places in the United States that cater to families outside of the typical theme parks and tourist attractions. Be creative when planning your route map so your family will marvel at the unorthodox destinations you have chosen.
Visit your local outdoor market

Shopping trips with your family can be quite a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be that stressful. Skip the big department stores and go back to basics by driving to a nearby farmer’s market. What’s great about shopping at farmer’s markets is you’re assured your food purchases are clean and free from chemicals. Of course, when you’re preparing a hearty Easter Sunday feast for your family, you want to make sure you get only the freshest ingredients possible. And with the generally laidback environment of a farmer’s market, you and your family will enjoy the luxury of a leisurely shopping experience.
Enjoy the wonders of nature

The best way to really experience the arrival of spring is going outdoors and seeing all the plants blooming with life after months of winter hibernation. Take simple pleasure in walking through nature trails in a local park or forest and marveling at the beauty of your surroundings. If you want to kill two birds with one stone, you can even host an Easter egg hunt outdoors so that your kids will enjoy looking through flowers, trees, and shrubs while seeking out their colorfully painted treasures.
