Let’s chat about Easter…..
Personalised Easter baskets, chocolate eggs, carrot platters to place the carrots out for the bunny, chocolate Easter bunnies, bunny ears and lollies.
Such an excess of sugar and stuff!
Sugar and stuff we don’t need along with the sugar hang over and trying to work out how to store all the personalised stuff you bought or were given.
As you might have guessed, I am not a huge fan. I don’t dislike the idea of Easter. I just don’t like how it has morphed into an other highly commercialised holiday. Much like most of our holidays.
So here are a few ways to reduce the excess while keeping ALL THE FUN 🙂
Keep the hunt with a couple of exceptions –
Instead of have a hunt for multiple chocolate eggs and bunnies, make it hunt for a single egg or bunny. Start by giving the kids a note with a clue to a location. The clue can either be written or drawn as a picture for the little ones. The kids then need to find an other note in the location mentioned in the first note. This continues until the final note points to the place where the bunny or egg can be found.
We did this for my son and his cousins last year. He was 2 and his oldest cousin 6 at the time so we have proof it works and is a big hit for children of different ages.
If you do not have the energy or time to set up the clues yourself, don’t worry, we have you covered. Send us a mail and we will send you a free set of Easter Hunt printables. You only need some paper and black ink, and a prize and 5 minutes before the hunt.
