Easter Activities in Boston and Online
No need to hunt for things to do leading up to April 12, 2020 and beyond. We’re hopping with ways to celebrate Easter, from special Easter photos to Easter Bunny visits and story times.
Create colorful eggs out of paper or draw them on a sidewalk. Easter egg templates are provided, as well as a hint to get you started. Display your eggs in a place where everyone can see them. When you spot an egg, take a photo and post it to the East Somerville Main Street Facebook page with the tag #SomervilleEggHunt. How many you can find? // April 8–14
