Over the years we've developed some traditions that we love and treasure during Easter.
#1 Easter egg coloring, followed by egg wars.
#2 Pancakes that are decorated with Scribblers (icing) for breakfast.
#3 Our cousin Alen. This year will be the first time in many years that Alen will not be with us and it'll be a strange not to share the holiday with him. I can't honestly recall the last we weren't all together. (insert tear drops and sad face)
#4 The famous Easter egg/basket hunt!!!!!
Our kids anxiously anticipate the Easter Bunnies arrival, in much the same way as they anticipate Santa at Christmas. Over the years we've always made the Easter egg/basket hunt a fun adventure for them. When they were younger, they just had to follow a path of eggs to get to their basket, or a couple of clues here and there. The past few years we've done a riddle hunt of sorts. The riddles have gotten progressively more difficult in order to match their age and ability levels. This past weekend I created 8 clues that will take them around the house/garage in order to finally obtain their bag of Easter goodies. They absolutely LOVE the scavenger hunt and we love to stump them. It's no fun to make it too easy but you also don't want to get them frustrated, after all it's supposed to be fun. Feel free to download the clues, and modified them, and the letter to start your own Easter egg hunt.
As they girls have gotten older their bag of goodies has changed as well. If you are having some difficulty planning what to put in your child's basket below are a couple of ideas.
