Create Your Perfect Easter at Shackleford Crossings Image

It's almost Easter and the best way to hop on down the bunny trail this year is at Shackleford Crossings. Create the perfect Easter for the entire family and get everything you need in one place.

Preparing for Fun

What's Easter without fun activities? Get the entire family involved with things like: 

•Easter egg hunt - Have eggs with or without prizes in them. 

•Easter-themed bean bag toss - You can even use small bean bag bunnies or ducks instead of bean bags. 

•Egg toss - Toss plastic eggs into an Easter basket. 

•Pin the tail on the bunny - Simply print out a picture of a bunny. Put Velcro strips where the tail should be. Use a large ball of cotton for the tail. 

•Hold an Easter talent show - Anything goes as long as it relates to Easter. 

•Set up a craft table - Gather supplies and let kids create their own Easter crafts. 

When it comes to crafts, Walmart and JoAnn have everything you need for fun projects like: 

•Easter-themed coloring pages 

•Painting eggs 

•Easter jewelry 

•Easter masks and headbands 

•Homemade cookies 

•Pop-up cards 

•Easter garland 

You can even buy Easter craft kits to make it even easier.

Dressing Up

Easter's the perfect time to buy a new spring outfit. Outsmart unpredictable weather by buying a thin jacket to go over any spring dresses.

Shackleford Crossings has your entire family covered for Easter fashion. Try out the latest fashions at Maurices and JC Penney. Don't forget to pick up a comfortable pair of dress shoes at Rack Room Shoes.

When you're dressing smaller children, make sure the clothes give them plenty of room to run and play. Also, opt for outfits that are easy to clean as it's not unusual for kids' Easter clothes to get grass stains on them during egg hunts.

Hosting Easter

Hosting Easter brunch or just an all-day family gathering? No problem. All you need are some decorative Easter baskets, some plastic eggs, a few bouquets of flowers, and pastel place settings.

Decorate the plastic eggs and arrange them in the Easter baskets. Use artificial or real flowers in the center of the basket and around the edges. These make great centerpieces. Use pastel place settings, or even Easter-themed tablecloths, to decorate tables throughout your home.

Add a few colorful Easter wreaths and well-placed stuffed bunnies and ducks to create a fun Easter atmosphere.

Hop on into Shackleford Crossings and make this the best Easter yet!
