Are you doing anything "natural" for Easter? Menu, Easter basket ideas, crafts, etc.?

When is Easter again? Lol.

Since we're agnostic and/or not currently active Christians, it would be extremely hypocritical for us to celebrate Easter, so we don't.

Church, maybe an egg hunt at my friends house, maybe not. We haven't done baskets yet, I'm sure we will because I like the chocolate! ;) We don't do the whole "easter bunny" thing. We'll probably do some sort of craft for it too. We haven't made plans. We did get the girls Easter dresses though.

We are dying our eggs naturally.

What will you be using? I think DS is old enough to have fun doing that this year.

Oh, sure.  We got some organic jelly beans and gummy things for Adam.  I don't have my menu planned yet.  We have to get through baptism first.

I don't do Easter baskets because we aren't going to celebrate the Easter bunny.  He has nothing to do with why we celebrate it.  I'm not sure if Adam is old enough for crafts.  He just started not eating the crayons and putting other stuff in his mouth.

It's early this year, I think March 31 or somewhere around there.

We aren't doing baskets either. MIL will probably make one for the boys and wants to do an egg hunt at her house though.

Oh wow, that is early! I forget that sometimes it's not in April.
I hope your family has a fun celebration.

We are moving from Las Vegas to Nebraska on Saturday so we won't do much. Church for sure and then I think the extended family is making plans. I am trying to steer away from baskets but my MIL always sends a bunch of stuff so I will probably just put out what she sends. IDK. I am just trying to get through the move.
