Now my girls are older, I thought that this year they would not want an Easter egg hunt. How wrong I was! After I had hidden the eggs, they had fun looking for the stash. Me? I had fun arranging their findings afterwards in the baskets they have used for ten egg hunts:
I arranged their collection so that they could enjoy the sight of their chocolate while they are eating it. A few years ago, my husband and I decided to spend the money on buying the better quality chocolate even though it means the children have less chocolate to hunt. The result? The girls get a Lindt bunny, carrot, chicken and ladybug with a few little eggs thrown in. Thought that this year I would buy an Aero egg and a KitKat bar for them to try in addition to the solid bunny.
To continue the tradition I started so many years ago, the girls found a little something else to put in their basket. My one daughter loves Pikachu so when I saw the small stuffy, I knew I had to get it for her. Unfortunately there were no other Pokemon available in the store, so I matched the adorable pokemon with a Hello Kitty stuffed toy.
My girls have their baskets on display on their dresser and are slowly eating their chocolate. I guess I will not have to organise dessert for a while 🙂
Do you still arrange Easter egg hunts?
