All about Easter
When is it? Easter 2023: Sunday, April 9th
Easter is a Christian holiday marking the Resurrection of Jesus, three days after his death by crucifixion. Nowadays, it’s often known to mark the onset of Spring and the Spring holidays. It’s also a fun holiday celebrated with chocolate Easter eggs and the adorable Easter bunny. Discover more about Easter’s history, traditions and sending Easter greetings here.

Virtual Easters are a way for you to celebrate with loved ones online. It could be a shared meal, online Easter games, or a virtual Easter egg hunt, as long as it’s not in person.
Virtual Easter ideas
#1 Virtual Easter egg hunt
A virtual Easter egg hunt is one of the most popular virtual ways to celebrate, it’s no wonder why, it’s super fun and a longtime tradition for many!
It takes a little prep. Participating parents or hosts in their different households need to hide the Easter eggs in their houses beforehand. We recommend talking to each other beforehand about the amount and type of chocolate treats, so that kids don’t feel jealous.
Once the call is up and running, someone shouts “3, 2, 1, hunt!”, and the kids in their respective households search for the eggs. Once everyone’s found their eggs, have the kids show off their eggs on FaceTime. You can change the level of the virtual Easter egg hunt, by adding fun games or clues during.
#2 Easter trivia challenge

#3 Virtual Easter egg decoration
Whether you decorate an actual egg whilst on Zoom or use a digital whiteboard, decorating eggs is a fun activity for kids and adults to get creative together. Use your computer’s split screen option, so kids can see each other’s drawings.
#4 Virtual Easter/ spring bingo
Since Easter falls in spring, why not create a Spring Bingo? You can make your own bingo page, or there are a couple of fantastic Easter and Spring-themed bingo games you can find and print online with a quick Google search.
#5 Design a virtual Easter card.
Set up a Zoom call and start an Easter card-making group. To make it extra fun, you can do a Secret Santa game of sorts. This is when your group arranges and exchanges gifts/cards anonymously. Here are a few Easter card ideas to help inspire you.
If you’re away from your friends and family over Easter, send them a MyPostcard personalized Easter card. With MyPostcard app, you can design a personalized card. They’ll then print and post the card directly to your loved one’s address. Thoughtful and super easy!

Chubby Bunny is a hilarious game where players take turns trying to see how many marshmallows they can fit into their mouths. They then have to try and say “Chubby Bunny!”.
