I hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebration. This was our third or fourth year going completely candy free. With kids that may be kind of rare, but once we realized the allergies we were dealing with we decided we just didn't want to risk health. The good news is, no one misses the candy. Kaelyn still has so much fun. She gets a basket with goodies and she hunts Easter eggs but they are filled with coins. She loves saving up for things to purchase in the future. Egg dyeing is also a hit every year. She had a very memorable Easter celebration at the farm this year and it had nothing to do with candy. :)
Easter morning she was thrilled to find her basket and see what the contents were. She had been begging for a Bible like mine, one that is easier to understand and she got what she wished for but even better... it was pink! Mama almost had to get another one for herself! Ha!
She liked that the eggs had coins in them, but more than that she liked the search. She talked a few family members into hiding them so she could search again and again. Eggs could hold so many other things than coins or candy... we've done words in the eggs that she has to piece together to see what it says, you could also do puzzle pieces, small trinkets, beads, stones... Have you made the search creative? If so, we would love to hear about it.
