O.k. I may be a little tired from staying up to play Easter Bunny, but it was worth it. We gathered at 7 a.m. with an excited 8-year-old to find out what the Easter Bunny left. He's really not into the candy or anything, which makes it a little hard to fill eggs, but he loves the excitement of the hunt.
Last year The Easter Bunny a scavenger hunt for his basket. He loved it. This year was a little harder as my grandfather had been in the hospital since (our) Spring Break and passed away, so this past week has been filled with funeral services. A local group of Jr.High girls (I think) were earning money by "egging" houses (hiding Easter eggs) the night before Easter, so I quickly jumped on their list since I felt bad dropping the ball on any planning for this year. (I literally only have no decorations up except for 2 little "chicks" i got at Cracker Barrel the day my grandfather passed away.)
So yesterday they texted us the times they'd be here, so we made sure to be gone. We got home at about 10 p.m. and I sent Lil Monkey straight the bed. Since we'd never had an Egg Hunt for him at our own house, I decided to make a sign to let him know that The Easter Bunny had left him some eggs in the front yard. I love how it turned out.
Since he loved searching for his basket last year, I decided to hide it again, this time in our formal dining room (last year it was in our guest bedroom). In order to find his basket he had to find a golden egg. I had thought ahead enough to get a golden egg at the store earlier this week, so I made this cute little note to put inside.
However, there was a total mom-fail with this. I merely looked out the front door to make sure eggs had been hidden, I did not go out and look at the eggs, so during our egg hunt this morning, there were 2 other golden eggs. My husband made a joke about The Easter Bunny must have eaten a lot of carrots ... at which point we explained carrots vs. karats to my son.
A few friends have asked if they can use it next year, so I am happily sharing here for all to use. I have also made several color options and you can find links below.
I hope you all have an EGG-cellent Easter!!
Until next time, stay #CreativelyInspired!
