When my daughter Aryanna was growing up, Tom and I would organize Easter egg hunts at home. Sometimes we involved our staff or the kids from our neighborhood but most of the time just family. Tom is the master of leaving clues (and making it difficult too. Pahirapaaan?!) and all of us would have a fun time looking for the hidden Easter eggs!
Now that Aryanna has a sibling, she wanted to be the one organizing the egg hunt for her ‘lil bro Dylan. Too sweet!
Family traditions don’t have to cost any money and they don’t have to be elaborate. For me, the main ingredients in a family tradition are fun and togetherness. Saying goodbye with a hug and a kiss every day before you walk out the door is a simple family tradition.
Traditions need to be fun and need to repeat themselves normally on a set schedule. For instance, game board night, you have a taco dinner weekly, or you celebrate an occasion yearly. Repetition is what makes a fun event into a tradition.
Dylan can’t wait for his next Easter egg hunt and according to Tom, he’s getting involved. Oh my.
What’s your favorite family tradition?
