Holidays are really fun. I really like to try to do something special for my kids, so they remember the holidays and have fun. This Easter I tried to make it fun. I was reading an Easter book to the kids the night before and Finnegan announced he knows that the Easter Bunny is fake. My reply was this…
Me – “Ooohh, are you going to ruin the holiday?”
Finn – Looks at me like I am crazy.
Me – “You know what I was always told? If you don’t believe in the Easter bunny, you won’t get a basket on Easter.”
Finn – Looks at me for a long moment…and says ” I do believe.”
Ha! I know he still doesn’t but at least his sister thinks he does.
We colored eggs that night as well. Here is a picture of my sweet babies, coloring eggs.
As a child, our baskets were always hidden. We got to do a long scavenger hunt through the house to try to find those sneaky baskets. I knew that the kids were going to do an Easter Egg hunt the next day during our Easter/Birthday Party bash, so I didn’t want to do it again. Each clue was hidden with two to four eggs filled with one piece of candy.
It was a fun basket hunt, and even more of a fun day. More pictures of our Easter/Birthday to follow.
