[UPDATED FOR 2019]
You don’t need a backyard to celebrate Easter! If you live in apartments in Chico or Redding you're in luck because there are many different ways that you can spend time with your family and friends on this special holiday. Here are a few tips to get you started!
We recommend using plastic eggs if you're having an Easter egg hunt inside your apartment. You can put candy, inexpensive rings, quarters and other fun knick-knacks inside that your little ones will love.
When you're hiding the eggs, it's important to get creative with your hiding spots because you won’t have grass, trees and outdoor plants to hide them in. But you can hide them in blankets, inside the refrigerator, under rugs and more! Having an Easter egg hunt inside your apartment can actually be more fun than hiding them outside!

Have Guests Over
If you can’t find an event that you're interested in attending or maybe it doesn’t work with your time schedule, plan something yourself. You can have a few guests over, prepare a nice brunch, plan an egg hunt and spend quality time with your friends and family at your own time and pace. Residents who live in apartments in Chico or Redding can still entertain, you just have to get a little creative and plan ahead of time.
