Dying Easter Eggs

One of our favorite Easter activities is dying Easter Eggs in the Instant Pot which is super simple and less messy than other ways!

She also goes over how to cook and dye Easter eggs the traditional way, without an instant pot.

Easter Egg Hunt

By Easter morning, the Easter bunny has hidden the Easter baskets around the house for the kids and my husband and I have hidden Easter eggs around the house. When we all wake up, we head down to our lower level to see what fun goodies are in store!

We put the names of our 3 boys on Easter Eggs so everyone gets the same amount and the same things. We have some small toys inside of eggs, some with candy, and others with a note to look elsewhere for a bigger item such as a book.

Here are some past pictures of our little bunnies hunting for Easter eggs and then opening them once everyone is done hunting.
