The kids declared that an egg hunt was in order–whether or not Spring had officially sprung.
And what child will ever argue with a basket full of Easter eggs with tons of surprises inside?
The big “kids” were thrilled at the prospect too.
Back in my day–when I was the mama filling all those eggs for my babies to find–we just packed those suckers with as many malt ball eggs and jelly beans and gummy bunnies as we could get our mitts on.
It’s a wonder all their teeth didn’t fall out. Sheesh.
But this year–my smart cookie daughter, came up with an idea that would give the kids just enough sugar in the plastic eggs to give them a buzz–but not so much that they’d run around the coffee table 45 times in 2 minutes.
She loaded some of the eggs with plastic coins that the kids could turn in to the Bunny Store, for cute little prizes. Good thinking girlie.
Candy-schmandy. What’s sugar compared to a Sponge Bob kite and a pink bunny face mask–I ask you?
The little peeps were thrilled beyond belief.
And we still found plenty of surprises in the eggs.
