With a garden as large as ours we decided to have an Easter egg hunt in the garden. We have done this for the last few years. Our family has now expanded to sixteen with grandkids and extended family. Everyone enjoys a challenge finding eggs.
We hold the egg hunt right after a nice Easter brunch. It’s always fun to get everyone together each year. Life gets busy and we don’t see each other as often as we would like. As grandparents we are thrilled to have several generations participate in the egg hunt. Adults can be very competitive and will race to see who gets the most eggs.
This year the eldest grandson is 22 months old so he won’t really know what to do. I found a good idea online to make it easier for him to find the eggs. I blew up some balloons and taped them to a plastic egg filled with candy. They were placed in the garden for him to find. It was a kids only egg if you saw a balloon. After all, a toddler needs a bit of help as eggs can be small and hard to find. He collected eggs wondering what the big deal was until one broke open. His face glowed when he realized the eggs had candy inside.
Ninety-two eggs were hidden and eighty-nine eggs were found. This gardener may find a few surprise snacks in the garden this week. Yes, it rained hard last night so everyone wore boots today. That’s a moat in the garden.
One of our guests brought bunny templates so we could make bunnies from construction paper. I think they would be very cute strung across the mantle next year.
Hoping you had a wonderful Easter! May your day be full of family memories.
