Easter at Home from the Clearwater Community Volunteers
By: Clearwater Community Volunteers
Easter is one of the most important Christian religious holidays. It is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and bring with it a message of awakening and re-birth.
Easter brings together families of many faiths as some of its customs, such as Easter eggs, are likely linked to pagan traditions. In pagan festivals celebrating spring, the eggs were associated with life. From the Christian perspective, they are said to represent Jesus' resurrection. Decorating eggs for Easter is a tradition that dates back to at least the 13th century.
Though Easter egg hunts have been called off this year, there are still activities you and your families can do at home.
1. Make salt dough Easter eggs and paint them to hang around the house. Salt dough is a mix of 4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup salt and 1.5 cups warm water, shape and bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 1-2 hours. Then you just have to paint and decorate!
2. A mixture of washable acrylic paint and dish soap is the perfect recipe for home-made Easter egg stained glass windows.
3. Sidewalk chalk drawing will have the kids out for hours and bring some color to your neighborhood. It is fun way to stay outside while maintaining social distancing.
"The purpose of our events, be it our Easter egg hunt or Winter Wonderland, is to bring the community together and spread happiness." said Pam Ryan Anderson, Executive Director of CCV. "So enjoy this opportunity to create memories and spend time with your family."
