Easter is a major holiday for our family. While the primary focus is on Christ’s Resurrection and participating at Mass, there are many different ways that we can be celebrating Easter in the home. This includes crafts & decorations, gifts to give, food to make, and activities for the day.
This post, Celebrating Easter in the Home, is part of a campaign for Catholic Central. All opinions are our own.
Celebrating Easter in the Home: Ideas from Our Past
Looking back, there are so many different ways we’ve chosen to celebrate Easter in our home. This list is what we do outside of attending Mass on Easter.
1. Take a Family Photo in Your Easter Best
One of the things that I always looked forward to with the boys when they were younger is getting them a new outfit to wear to Mass. Now that they are older, it isn’t a priority. Plus, the teen and young adults aren’t changing sizes in the blink of an eye.
But, we do always try to get a family photo after we’ve attended Mass. I adore this one when my youngest decided to strike a pose ala Tony Horton workouts.
2. Make some Crafts to help Decorate the Home
I’ve shared a few crafts here. Along with the crafts, we had fun with some coloring pages, too. Feel free to use one or more of the ideas in your own home.
3. Host your own Easter Egg Hunt
In Alaska, the glow in the dark Easter eggs are a HUGE hit. Since Easter is later in the spring & we’ll be in Colorado for it this year, regular Easter eggs from Dollar Tree are our pick.
4. Have a Special Meal
Last year, we found American lamb at Whole Foods. More specifically Colorado-raised lamb. It was amazing. Since we’ll be in Colorado again this year for Easter, I’ll head back to get a leg of lamb for our Easter meal.

Other years it has been ham. What is traditional for us is using my formal china most years to make the meal a bit more extraordinary.
And, don’t forget something for dessert. I am eyeing up making these Lemon Cheesecake squares using gluten-free cake mix.
