Along with eating, your Easter brunch can include some fun table games that the entire family will enjoy. Pass an Easter book around the table while you each read from it, or have an egg decorating contest! You can also plan a small scavenger hunt to take place after brunch right in your own backyard. Go for the traditional egg hunt or expand the hunt to the whole house where each member of the family has to find different Easter-themed items. There are endless options to make this a fun event for everyone!
