Preparing a Safe Easter Celebration

Preparing a Safe Easter Celebration

Easter is a joyful springtime celebration for many people. Here are some tips to make sure your family’s celebration is a good, safe time for all.

  1. Keep choking hazards away from small children. Young children often like to put things in their mouths, and small candies and toys can be choking hazards. Make sure that all treats are age-appropriate for the kids at your celebration.
  2. Practice egg safety. Improperly stored or cooked eggs can carry food-borne pathogens. Follow these tips to keep everyone safe:
  • Keep eggs in the refrigerator before boiling them for Easter decorating (or just easting).Preparing a Safe Easter Celebration
  • Throw out eggs that are cracked, lighter than you’d expect, or have been at room temperature for more than two hours.
  • Wash your hands often when preparing and decorating eggs.
  1. Plan a safe Easter egg hunt. Don’t hide eggs near electrical outlets or glass objects, in plants that have thorns, or in holes in the ground. Also, consider having separate egg hunts for different age groups. Older kids can accidentally trample younger kids or take all the eggs before the little kids have a chance to find any.
  2. Don’t purchase animals as Easter gifts. Chicks and bunnies can be cute as babies, but kids can lose interest quickly, especially as they get older. And families can be unprepared to care for the pet properly, leading to overpopulation and neglect.
  3. Keep food allergies in mind. Make sure to keep track of any food allergies your guests may have. If you don’t know, err on the side of caution by avoiding treats with peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, or dairy.
