7 WAYS TO SPEND EASTER WEEKEND AT HOME
BY JUDY LEE
Many of you may be wondering how you and your family will spend Easter weekend in the midst of quarantine. It can feel unrhythmic and even disheartening to think of all the usual activities that are no longer possible: the church services, the children's egg hunts, the family gatherings. Yet a celebratory mood may be the perfect thing to get your mind off the fears and anxieties brought on by COVID-19. You may be stuck at home, but you can still make this Easter a fun, festive and meaningful holiday.
Here are 7 creative ways you and your loved ones can celebrate Easter weekend while staying safe at home:
1. PAINT EASTER EGGS WITH YOUR KIDS
Or your spouse, partner, friend...anyone who's around you! Get into a festive mode by following the DIY trend. If you're stuck on ideas, check out this Pinterest Board for inspiration on unique Easter Egg designs.

6. PAUSE AND REFLECT ON THINGS YOU'RE THANKFUL FOR
Thanksgiving may be long past, but that doesn't mean we have to stop being thankful. Use this time as an opportunity to journal or reflect on the things you've been blessed with even during COVID-19 like family, home, and resources.
7. JOIN A CHARITY CAUSE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
