What Date is Easter?

Easter can never occur before March 22 or later than April 25. The usual statement, that Easter Day is the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs next after the vernal equinox, is not a precise statement of the actual ecclesiastical rules. The full moon involved is not the astronomical Full Moon but an ecclesiastical moon (determined from tables) that keeps, more or less, in step with the astronomical Moon.

Below are the dates for Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday from the years 2011 – 2015.

Play Easter Games

 

Golden Easter Egg Hunt

  • Have the kids decorate their own Easter baskets, each using a different color. They are then told that the eggs they will be looking for must be the same color as their baskets (they aren’t to touch the other colors). This makes it easier for smaller children as the eggs can be out in plain view where the older the kids the harder they have to search for their Easter eggs.
  • You can also hide one (or more) gold egg which contains a special prize. The prize can be anything you’d like (place money inside the egg or they can redeem the golden egg for a special prize).

In The Dark Egg Hunt

  • Have each kid bring their own flashlight from home and hunt for the Easter eggs in the dark, inside or outside.

Jelly Bean Easter Egg Hunt

  • For younger children, put down different colored jelly beans or small eggs for them to follow. At the end would be an Easter basket filled with a bunch of Easter goodies.

Find Your Name Easter Egg Hunt

  • Write the name of each child on one of the Easter eggs you hide, the one that finds their own name wins a prize.
