Turn “Being the Easter Bunny” into a fun Easter date night!
A few years ago I told my husband I was going to plan a date that was out-of-the-ordinary. He was less than thrilled when I told him it involved crafting with hot glue and rhinestones! We were going to spend the evening at home, making dinner together and decorating/filling our kids Easter baskets! Here is how it all went down:
Easter Date Night
- Easter baskets & fillers- candies, eggs, plastic grass etc.
- Craft embellishments- rhinestones, hot glue gun, ribbon, stickers etc.
- All the ingredients to make dinner together
- Get rid of the kiddos!
Drop them off at grandma’s house, find a babysitter who will take them, swap with a friend… do what you need to do to get the kids out of the house!
- Head to the store
If you don’t have all the ingredients for dinner and for your kiddos Easter baskets that you need, run out together and pick them up. (Can I just say how fun it is to go grocery shopping without kids?!)
- Go home & turn on some music!
Set the mood of your choice- romantic, flirty, fun… you decide what music you want for the occasional dance breakout session during the night!
- Start making dinner together.
This is something we don’t do very often and it is so fun! On this particular night we made Grilled Pastrami Sandwiches with salad & chips! Easy, but delish!
- Personalize the Baskets.
Feel free to embellish the heck out of your Easter baskets and watch your husband’s craft skills come to life! He might have a talent you never would have otherwise discovered!
- Fill the baskets & set aside
Put the candy in the eggs, the eggs in the baskets and then hide somewhere until Easter morning.
This date night is super fun- even my husband agreed. Sometimes it’s nice to have a relaxing night in. I think I will make this an annual tradition.
