The Guide to Easter in Colorado Springs

Guide to Easter

Easter is by far one of my favorite things about Spring. In fact, eleven years ago, my youngest son was born on Easter Sunday. I love that there is always so much to do during the weeks leading up to Easter. From bunny themed crafts and egg hunts to Easter train rides, the options seem almost endless. It was a joy compiling this list of Easter fun in and around Colorado Springs. Hopefully you’ll find something here that’s perfect for your family!

Happy Easter, Colorado Springs Moms Blog readers! Enjoy!
