Easter Holiday traditions vary among families, but most families tend to have a few things that are shared such as dying Easter eggs, a new Easter Dress for the girls, and eating yellow marshmallow chicks delivered in a basket by the Easter Bunny. Here are 10 cute Easter pictures designed to get you inspired for Easter. Pull out your camera and take plenty of pictures because you will be able to forge family memories that will last a lifetime.

There is no way this young child will ever remember this Easter, however the parents will be able to show him the pictures. As parents we often say that certain Holidays are made “for the kids”, yet parents often have more interest in the holidays then their children.

This 1 year old though the best thing to put into the Easter basket was herself. Today most of the Easter baskets we buy and use are made in China. In the past our ancestors use to weave their own baskets by hand.
8. Baby Chicken Peeking Put Of Hatched EggCredit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/21560098@N06/5599809804/
Isn’t it kind of ironic that we place so much emphasis on cute Easter chicken babies, then for dinner we eat fried chicken?

In many families it is an annual tradition for the girls to get a new dress for Easter. Easter Sunday is a fun day to go to church and see all of the cute dresses that the girls are wearing. The picture above is of a girl who was a finalist in the Asbury Park, New Jersey, Easter Parade.
6. Bunny Ears and Face PaintingCredit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/brunaferrara/4500146778/
Children love to wear improvised bunny ears and get their faces painted. Even if you do not want your child to wear face paint, there is a good chance they may end up with a stained face when you help them dye and decorate eggs.
5. Cute ChickCredit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cliche/3388550873/
Baby chickens are called chicks. This is one of the cutest chicks I have ever seen. The cuteness wears off when they age and become full grown chickens.
4. Coloring Easter EggsCredit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ian_munroe/3153853689/
One of the most fun traditions for children is the annual rite of coloring and decorating eggs for Easter. Although we may think that we are dying our eggs in a fancy way, our method has nothing on it compared to the intricate egg designs created by many people in the Central European Countries such as Russian and Poland. In these Countries a wax is used to coat the eggs and very extravagant and fancy designs are created. Regardless of how you dye your eggs, it is a very fun activity to allow you time to bond with your children. Make sure you take pictures f the dyed Easter Eggs so your children can continue to cherish these memories when they get older.

What’s more exciting to children then getting a new puppy in their Easter Basket? Getting a new puppy is often sight after by children, and getting one in your Easter basket is simply icing on the cake. Please don’t place baby chicks in the same Easter basket as a puppy.

Some families are very conservative. For these families Easter activities may simply involve going to church and then having a family dinner. It is important that you allow kids to have as much fun as possible on Easter, regardless of your religious views.

No longer do we simply dye our eggs and call it good. Many families buy Easter Egg Sticker decoration kits to totally do over their newly dyed Easter Eggs. Easter egg sticker decorations make it easy to have eggs that can be very awesome looking. Have a competition among the family to see who can make the funniest looking Easter eggs using the sticker kits.
Even if you are not religious, Easter is still a great Holiday to celebrate for the coming of spring. The cold winter weather is leaving and the warm summer days are on the way. Easter is the best time to celebrate the coming of spring. Easter can have many idealistic views, but ensuring that the children have a good time on this Holiday is very important.
You do not have to be religious to celebrate Easter. Many people celebrate the Easter Holiday even if they do not have strong religious convictions. Other people may never go to church except for once a year on Easter. Most churches will make you feel very welcome, even if you only go once or twice a year for the Holidays.
The highlight of Easter for many kids is attending and participating in Easter egg hunts. Many communities will have multiple Easter egg hunts organized by different groups. If you plan it our properly you can take your kids to attend more than 1 Easter egg hunt.
Even if you do not have children it can be a lot of fun to go and watch the various Easter egg hunts. You will often see parents of very young children that are very aggressive and will push other children out of the way and run “blocker” so that there kid can get more Easter Eggs. The funniest is when 2 parents spot the “Golden Egg” at the same time. The parents will often either abandon their child or drag them by the arm as the sprint and dive for the grand-prize egg. Expect to get grass stains on the knees of your pants.
Make sure you always carry a camera with you throughout the Easter day to document all of the activities for the day.
Easter has different meanings to different families, but the commonality is that it brings friends and families closer together by allowing them to share a meal together and catch up with each other. Easter is the proverbial Holiday that is truly enjoyed by people of many different faiths.
