Easter is a time of renewal as it celebrates life through the symbolic egg!
We consume massive amounts of chocolate during this time and generally regret it by the end of the day (unless you’re made for that kind of chocolate consumption, and if that’s the case, call me super jealous).
But, what if you want to hide something else instead of chocolate for Easter? Maybe you live in a warmer climate or you don’t want the risk of the chocolate melting before it’s found. Maybe your kids have allergies and you need an alternative. Or, maybe you just want a healthier option this year. Whatever the case may be, rest assured there are many other things you can hide on their own, or within those adorable pastel plastic eggs that won’t break the budget (not to mention you can make much of this very personalized)!
Easter egg hunts don’t have to just be for young kids. Make it a family event by including the older kids, or have your friends over for an after-hours hunt! Buy some plastic eggs of varying sizes from your local dollar store and get stuffin’!
