While we’re all cooped up at home during these challenging times, Easter has snuck up on us. Those who celebrate, may need to adjust the celebration to fit the current Health Unit guidelines, but there’s no reason to forego celebrating Easter.
If you attend church on Good Friday or Easter Sunday, you’ll have to rethink your plans. Many local churches are now offering services online. Contact your church to see if they offer this option.
Celebrating Easter means family gatherings. While gatherings of any kind are strongly discouraged, you can still connect with family through technology. There are several platforms that allow video chat: it’s up to you to choose the one that works best for you and your family.
Kids look forward to Easter for several reasons with egg hunts and chocolate the most popular. Some neighbourhoods are putting up coloured Easter eggs in windows, while others are hosting their own virtual Easter egg hunts online. No matter what you choose to do, remember to practice social distancing and follow all Health Unit guidelines.
When it comes to entertaining kids, there are many Easter themed crafts to do from home. Whether they want to make sock bunnies, paint chicks, or make cards, there is no shortage of resources available online. If you need any assistance locating appropriate crafts with the household items you have access to, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our staff is missing all the fun stuff we do for our programs, and we’d love to help you find the perfect crafts!
We also provide access to tremendous reading materials. Check out TumbleBooks for amazing picture books or the TeenBookCloud for some great graphic novels. Other Easter themed materials for readers of all ages can be found here. If you don’t already have a library card, you can sign up for one here.
Stay happy and healthy!
