Fun & Practical Easter Tips
It is already mid-April which means Easter, a holiday celebrated by a large portion of the US population. Below are some fun and practical tips for your holiday weekend:
-Always count your eggs before you hide them. There are countless stories of people forgetting about eggs only to have a terrible odor permeate your home many weeks or months later. Or having a pet eat a spoiled egg and causing short term problems!!
-Candy inside eggs is typically the go to but other ideas include clues to make it a scavenger hunt, learning items, raffle tickets, action/exercise notes (ie "do 5 pushups"), positive affirmation notes (ie "you are a fantastic helper"), seeds to plant, 1 puzzle piece in each egg to eventually create a completed puzzle.
-Often big kids will snag a good chuck of the eggs before a littler kids has been able to grab one or two. If possible, make it a team event and make teams of little and big kids.
-Aside from egg hunts, here are some other fun ideas: make your Easter basket, plant Easter flowers, Easter piñatas, Easter trivia, egg & spoon walk relay, pin the tail on the bunny.
-If you want to make a trip to see the Easter bunny but don't have time, there are no video services that allow kids to video chat with the Easter bunny.
We hope some of these ideas enhance your Easter experience. Have a safe and fun Easter!!
