Easter is not a huge deal in our house. I hear about some houses where Easter is almost like Christmas when it comes to gifts. In my house it is smaller scale. We do an egg hunt and then enjoy chocolate for the rest of that day. OK I lie, we usually get 1 gift. Last year he got a game for the kinect and the year before that he got sidewalk chalk.
One thing that is certain though is we always celebrate with Kinder Canada. I seriously LOVE Kinder and love how easy they make it to put together Easter egg hunts for my children.
That basket right there would take care of our entire Easter egg hunt for Big Brother minus the giant Kinder Surprise egg that I always have waiting at the end of his hunt with whatever his gift is that year.
To make it all even more fun something I had not seen before but received in my basket is the egg painting kit. This I am super excited to get my hands on with the kids and try it out.
I need a little help from YOU my reader though. Two years ago when we started doing egg hunts we drew pictures telling Big Brother where to look to find his next treat. Last year we wrote out clues such as “This is where we keep the cereal” to send him to the cereal drawer. This year he is 5 and I would like to actually let him just find stuff. At the same time we have Little Brother who is 1 and will experience his first Easter egg hunt.
How can I do a hunt in my tiny home that is actually fun for Big Brother but easy for Little Brother? At the same time, what do you do to add some excitement to the egg hunt? I feel so lame just hiding things in cupboards and drawers around the house. Please remember it is still winter here so I can’t do any hiding outside.
Out of curiosity have you liked Kinder Canada on Facebook yet? If you haven’t now is the time to do it. Until March 31st Kinder is donating $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network for every new like they get.
