How to Egg-cite Your Easter with Books

Spring is hopping around the corner, and Easter is on its tail! It’s the time of year when we get to indulge in our love for all things pastel, chocolatey, and… literary. This Easter, let’s turn the page on traditional baskets and nestle in some delightful reads among the jelly beans and chocolate bunnies. Because let’s face it, books are like chocolate for the brain—minus the cavities and the sugar rush. Here’s your guide to making books the stars of your Easter baskets, for kids and grown-ups alike.

Egg-cellent Ways to Incorporate Books This Easter

Themed Baskets That Tell a Story

Why stop at just adding a book when you can theme the whole basket? A pirate adventure book can come with a toy ship and a treasure map, leading to the ultimate treasure: more books! Or a cookbook paired with some cooking utensils for the aspiring chef in your family. It’s like a basket narrative, and who wouldn’t love that?

Nothing says, “I thought of you and didn’t just grab the last chocolate egg at the store,” like a book chosen with someone’s interests in mind. For Aunt Mary, who loves gardening, how about about making her garden grow? Or for little Timmy, who’s obsessed with dinosaurs, a story about a T-Rex? It’s personal, it’s thoughtful, and it’s bound to be a hit.

Replace that big chocolate bunny with a couple of well thought out books, because chocolate last a few minutes, but books last a lifetime.

An Easter Egg Hunt with a Plot Twist

Struggling to think of what to add in your Easter eggs this year for your Easter egg hunt? Imagine an Easter egg hunt where each egg contains a clue to the next, leading to a grand prize: an Easter themed book! It’s part treasure hunt, part storytime, and a whole lot of fun. Watch as your little detectives scramble around, piecing together the clues to find their bookish treasure.

Storytime: Not Just for Bedtime

Gather around for a special Easter storytime, where you can read from a book that’s all about spring, renewal, or bunnies with identity crises. Settle down in the spring breeze, set out your picnic blanket and basket, and read aloud. It’s a great way to settle down after a rush of Easter action and maybe start a new tradition.

Book Exchange: The Old Switcheroo

This Easter, why not host a book exchange? Everyone brings a wrapped book, and then, in a dramatic ceremony involving bunny ears and a magic wand (optional but highly recommended), everyone swaps books. It’s like musical chairs, but with books, and everyone wins a seat.
