While most of our past Easter holidays have been spent with friends and family, the 2020 Easter will be quite different. Social distancing guidelines mean that we have to be a little more creative about our holiday meal, religious celebrations and Easter Egg Hunts.
The Springs Homes Virtual Easter Egg Hunt!
With the COVID-19 restrictions, our office is vacant and lonely, so we thought we would stage a Virtual Easter Egg Hunt for everyone in Colorado Springs! Use our Matterport 3D virtual tour to walk through the empty Springs Homes office and count the eggs! How many blue ones? Green ones? Can you find “Springy”, the Springs Homes mascot or even the not-so-egg? Let us know on Social Media what you find!
Tell us what you found on Facebook!
Brag about your findings on Instagram!
Easter Sunday Services in Colorado Springs
The Easter holiday is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Church services are taking on a new look as many houses of worships are direct streaming or offering recorded services via youtube or on their website. Check with your favorite place of worship for times and topics. It’s also worth mentioning that many denominations have added Good Friday services to honor the day when Jesus died on the cross.
Most Easter Egg Hunts have been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but here are a few virtual options:
ABCya! – Easter Egg Hunt is fun holiday activity for kids of all ages. The object of this Easter activity is to simply find the hidden eggs. Look carefully at the pictures and use the mouse to click on the eggs to collect them. These Easter Eggs are hiding so kids will have to search extra carefully!
Primary Games – Find eggs and entertain your little ones.
Country Living Virtual Easter – We have all tried video conferencing in the past few weeks, here Country Living does a Virtual Easter Egg Hunt.
Easter Martha Style – No one has better ideas than the Queen herself. Check out some COVID-19-safe ideas from Martha Stewart.
Online Minecraft Easter Egg Hunt – A church in Texas is hosting an online Minecraft Easter Egg Hunt. Requires pre-registration.

Easter Crafts to do at Home
Tissue Paper Eggs
These colorful eggs require no dyeing and can be done using real eggs, plastic eggs, or even paper mache eggs. The technique is relatively simple and easy enough for little hands and fingers to manage. It makes a little bit of a mess, but that just adds to the fun of it. Learn more.

Paper Bunny Craft
A glue stick and construction paper is all you need to make these cute paper bunnies. Simple enough for the youngsters, this is a fun family craft. If you have time on your hands, make a bunch and then hang them on a string like a garland. Learn more.
You don’t need the mall and the Easter Bunny this year, do your own DIY photoshoot. May not be with the Easter Bunny himself, but pull out some fancy hats, fun sunglasses and silly scarves, get the whole family involved, and you are sure to have a winning family photo suitable for framing.
