Take a Silly Photo With the Easter Bunny

Whether you were terrified of the Easter bunny as a child or you looked forward to snuggling up next to him or her, you’ve got to admit the pictures probably still make you giggle. Go ahead, take your kiddies to the mall. (And make sure you submit your funniest Easter bunny pictures to our contest for a chance to win a prize!)


Dye Easter Eggs

Hard-boiled and dyed eggs are not only decorative for Easter, but they make for a yummy snack for the rest of the week. Bonus points if you buy organic, cage-free, or free-range eggs from one of the Valley’s local farms.

Host Your Own Easter Egg Roll

Every year, the White House hosts the Easter Egg Roll on its South Lawn. The activity involves rolling a dyed, hard-boiled egg with a large serving spoon across the lawn; the first to reach the finish line wins. Can’t make it to D.C.? Hosting your own for your family and friends is an easy (and cheap) activity everyone will love. Happy Easter!
