Spring will be here before long, and Easter with it, and how better to celebrate this special holiday than with Vidler's 5 & 10, in East Aurora, NY?
Easter, which always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the annual spring equinox, has pagan as well as religious roots. Look in any Easter basket and you’re as likely to find marshmallow Peeps as you are chocolate crosses.
We’ve got you covered no matter how you celebrate the holiday, from various candies and chocolate Easter goodies to pysanky eggs and egg-decorating kits.
Feeling crafty? Why not try your hand at decorating pysanky eggs at Vidler’s?
Pysanky is a Ukrainian egg-decorating tradition using a wax-batik method to create intricate designs. Vidler's offers supplies for this.
If you’d rather not decorate your own eggs, Vidler's offers beautiful, hand-crafted pysanky eggs that are already to go home with you.
Another fun Easter tradition is (obviously) the Easter egg hunt. This activity is enjoyed by children and adults alike, as they search for colorful eggs hidden throughout the yard or park. It's a great way to spend time with family and friends and create lasting memories.
If you're looking for unique and creative ways to decorate your Easter eggs, consider using natural dyes made from fruits, vegetables, and spices. Not only is it a fun activity to do with kids, but it's also a more sustainable and eco-friendly option than using store-bought dyes.
To create natural dyes, you can use items like beets, blueberries, turmeric, and red cabbage. Simply boil the ingredients in water and add a tablespoon of vinegar to help the dye adhere to the eggs. Then, let the eggs soak in the dye for several hours or overnight. The result is a beautiful and unique egg with a soft, muted color.
