Film Photography in the Mountains with Christie Fitzpatrick
While this spring is different from those of the past, there are still many ways in which you can honor your traditions and celebrate the season. Read on below to learn more about safe activities to participate in as a family this weekend.
Easter egg hunts are a spring staple for most children. With current restrictions, you can still partake in the activity but in a safer and more creative manner.
Another springtime tradition is egg decorating. Allow your children to express their creativity by painting, coloring eggs or alternative materials. The cardboard, styrofoam, and other packaging materials from recent deliveries make for great materials to reuse as decor.
If you’re social distancing with adults then indulge your competitive side. Everyone can participate by decorating an egg and then post the final products for voting. Instagram polls make for easy ways to tally public favor.
Get your Zoom, House Party, and FaceTime dates ready. With video calls, you can plan to eat your Passover Seder meal or Easter brunch together even if you’re afar. A simple face to face hello can help to brighten anyone’s day.
Like most seasons, classic meals are something to look forward to. This weekend, mix and match between your family recipes and new food trends using the season’s freshest produce. Get your kids involved with some baked goods like carrot cake, sticky buns, or decorated sugar cookies.
If you’re not much of a home cook (or need a break from cooking) support a local business with curbside pick up or delivery.

In the age of streaming services, there’s no shortage of shows or movies to watch. For something more festive for the kids, stream “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!”. Supplement some of the basket gifts with “viewer’s choice” on movies to rent and then watch as a family.
Religious organizations all over are opening their doors to the web. Do a bit of research on the services that you can attend virtually.
Try your best to photograph if you’re able to safely access a park or if you have a garden. Use our tips below to try and capture the nature around you.
