Easter Weekend Guide




Easter weekend is here! Yet, it sure doesn’t feel like Easter. My family has traditions of attending community Easter egg hunts leading up to Easter, going to Easter breakfast at church and then having an extended family get together in the afternoon. None of that will happen this weekend. BUT, we did take extra time to decorate our home this year for Easter, and joined the GREAT LAKE COUNTRY EASTER EGG HUNT.

How do you usually spend Easter? How will it be different this year? Will you get dressed up in  your Sunday best? Will you order takeout from the restaurant you were planning on eating at? Will you grill out instead in between the raindrops? Will you host a fun Easter egg hunt for your children? Will you make a scavenger hunt to find their Easter baskets? Did you even make Easter baskets? {Still on my to-do list.}

  {All things APRIL and Social Distancing friendly in Waukesha County}

If you are looking for things to do this Easter weekend with your family check out our events calendar, featuring virtual and COVID-19 friendly events, including virtual Easter Bunny sightings!

In case your holiday weekend has you searching for a hike, our local Waukesha County Parks, spring trails, and neighborhood trails might be quite busy. State parks and trails have been closed now. If you venture outdoors to walk around your neighborhoods, please remember to stay 6+ feet away from a stranger. We love this graphic from the Nature Conservancy in WI. As always, remember to clean up after yourself, touch as little as possible, and enjoy the fresh clean air!

Despite the uncertainty of the world right now, we at Lake Country Family Fun have been watching all the good happen. We found 10 creative ideas for community in the past couple weeks. And we started the Great Lake Country Easter Egg Hunt. Did you join? We have some eggs up already! Plus, have you seen Lake Country Giving? What a wonderful service from an anonymous community member! Let us know what else you saw positive and heartwarming ❤️

Even with the positive, I say, breathe. I have said it multiple times now in weekend guides, social media posts and our e-newsletters, and I will continue to say it, because it’s something I remind myself daily. When I feel the overwhelm creeping in, when I feel the uncertainty settling in, when I feel unsure of the next move…I stop and breathe. Please breathe with me (from your house or at least 6 feet away 😉 )

So, we want to see all your social distancing weekend fun! Turn these lemons into lemonade🍋 Be sure to tag @lakecountryfamilyfun in your Easter weekend fun, your activities, your survival strategies, and we’ll be sure to share in our Facebook or IG stories. Thank you to those who tagged us last weekend!  🤗🥰
