Happy Easter! Here is how we celebrate. We take the traditional egg hunt and make it our own with a few twists.
Fun Easter Egg Hunt Tradition:
We always dye Easter eggs together as a family to prepare for our Easter egg hunt. It is a very important part of the process and we have fun working together but separately to create our own masterpiece eggs!
Then we always have Easter egg hunts. I know most people do the special gold prize egg and that is a fun one to try if you don’t do it already. It works out especially well in years where the youngest doesn’t find as many but does find the gold egg. The prize for finding the gold egg is something special which can be anything from a Cadbury egg to a stuffed bunny rabbit. We go smaller with the prize so that the non-winning child doesn’t get too jealous.
First the adults hide the eggs and the kids hunt. We usually do 2-4 rounds of that. Then kids hide the eggs and the adults hunt. We do another few rounds of that too!
It is serious competition! They like to see that we one of us also doesn’t get to have the most eggs and win but we still have fun.
Girls always win! LOL. My daughter is the oldest sibling and I am the fastest parent;)
The kids just love to flip the tables and get a chance to hide the eggs too! They feel important and empowered and they don’t have any pressure to find the most eggs in that round.
