You wouldn’t have to have been reading this blog to know that I do like sweet treats and I do give my kids sweet treats. My kids will receive Easter Eggs for Easter and I will eat a decent amount of chocolate myself. But it is nice to have an alternative to Easter Eggs that isn’t food based, but is still fun for the kids.
This year we will be replacing our chocolate Easter Egg hunt with an experience Easter Egg Hunt.
I created a list of fun mini experiences that I thought the kids would like and printed them out. If you think your kids might like these too, either click on the image above or here – Easter Egg Hunt Experiences List, to download a copy you can print out.
I repeated a number of the experiences that I knew would be most popular with the kids. One of them the “An extra 30 minutes technology.” experience, I know will be the most sought after so made sure I printed five and placed them in the identifiable coloured eggs. Four of them went into green eggs and one into yellow. I will let the kids know that they are only to take one green or yellow, so they will all receive that experience.
Note that I actually don’t send my kids to jail, but in reference to Monopoly, I included “A get out of jail free pass.” that they can use for those moments they find themselves in trouble!
The remainder of the experiences went into the eggs randomly. I think there will be some significant negotiations after the Easter Egg hunt! I picked up both the basket and the fillable eggs and a small discount store in Camberwell.
This is the first time I have tried something like this with the kids, so am really looking forward to see how they enjoy it Easter Sunday.
Do you have an alternative to Easter eggs of the chocolate variety?
