Can you believe it is almost time to start painting Easter eggs? Spring is nearly here and with it comes Easter, a wonderful holiday for family and friends to enjoy some time and warmer weather together. Why not create an Easter bucket list so you can be sure to make the most out of this special time of year? Take a look at these 25 things to do this Easter season, perfect for helping you enjoy this holiday to the fullest!
