April showers bring May flowers. Though April can be rainy, it does bring quite a bit of sunshine too. As the weather starts to warm, not only can you begin to dream of summer but you can start planning outside events again! Here are our top apartment resident event ideas for April 2022.
April Fool’s Day – Celebrated on April 1, April Fool’s Day is a celebration of practical jokes and trickery. Fool residents with a silly email or note posted to their doors. Or place plastic bugs in hallways for an extra freak out! Just don’t forget to tell everyone why afterward. Click here for great April Fool’s Day ideas.
Easter Celebrations –Host an event during the week prior to Easter (April 17) to celebrate! You can decorate hard-boiled eggs or wooden eggs from Amazon, have an egg on a spoon race, and try easter candy. Culminate your celebration with an Easter egg hunt on the day before or day off.
Passover Matzah Tasting – This year Easter and the first two days of Passover fall on the same weekend. Include residents in a Matzah taste test where you have various toppings for them to try on Matzah. You can’t forget to hand out chocolate-covered Matzah as an extra treat!
Celebrate Spring Break – During April, many school-aged students will have spring break. If you know the week that is used by the district the majority of school-aged residents attend, plan fun events to do during the day. A movie, scavenger hunt, or field day games are something all children would enjoy.
April “National Holiday” Celebrations
Every month we highlight “National Days” that make for great apartment resident events and activities. All of these come from the National Day Calendar and are a great reason to have an event or activity for your apartment residents!
National Name Yourself Day on April 9th – Set up a table with name tags and markers and let residents rename themselves! It will be fun to see all the silly names people come up with. Take photos and have residents vote for best name creation.
National Pet Day on April 11th – Who doesn’t love their pet? Set up a table with various treats for dogs, cats, and maybe small animals to give away to pet owners throughout the day. Encourage residents to post photos of their pets to your property’s Facebook group receiving their tasty treats.
National Earth Day on April 22nd – If your property has a garden, invite your residents to do some gardening or even plant something themselves. For fun, decorate your electric vehicle charging stations. You could also organize for a tree to be planted on Earth Day. This is also a great opportunity to remind residents about recycling and inform them of the building’s recycling system.
National Superhero Day on April 28th– Run a movie marathon of superhero movies all day long! Offer popcorn, candy, and sodas to residents as they come and go. Encourage children to dress up as their favorite superheroes and maybe even have a superhero mask decorating table with markers and stickers.
