You have to admit that Easter with kids is quite a different experience. Pre-kids, hubby and I would get each other our favourite chocolate egg and even both parents gave us an Easter egg too. So I guess we
Now we get no eggs for each other and the grandparents spoil the grandchildren with giant eggs. Luckily they get so many that we can take them off them and say that they need to only have one now and the rest over the next few weeks. The temptation of chocolate in the cupboard is far too much for my husband and most are gone by the end of the first night.
The most treasured tradition we have begun is the Easter egg hunt. This involves all the cousins finding fake eggs and collecting them in their baskets. We have little signs and clues and the kids go crazy hunting all over the backyard of where ever we have set up. As they are getting older, I am so excited to make it trickier and have written clues or find a harder spot. FYI: always remember where you have planted the eggs (luckily they are not real…no melting)
The beauty of an egg hunt is that you can do it anywhere and with our NZ weather, the beach, park or playground are perfect places to hide many Easter eggs.
What traditions do you do with your children? How many eggs are they allowed to eat and are they made out of chocolate?
