Your Cart is Empty

April 04, 2019

It’s a familiar scenario by about 2pm on Easter Sunday. Hordes of sugar-crazed children, their eyes twitching, roam aimlessly.  Leaving behind them a trail of chocolate-smeared furniture and empty easter-egg wrappers, until finally they fall into a fructose-induced coma…on the garage roof…cuddling a food processor.  

The trick to keeping Easter special for your children is to go for quality over quantity.  Follow these 3 simple steps to make Easter special for your kids (without the sugar overdose!)

Easter for Kids Step # 1:  Go for quality over quantity

Rather than buying bags and bags of cheap chocolate, buy a few really delicious chocolate treats.   Then, round out their Easter treasure with a small, quality gift. Why not get them a brand new pair of kids sunglasses, and get their holiday eye-protection sorted at the same time.   

Easter for Kids Step #2:  It’s all in the presentation

Next, tuck those yummy chocolates and Easter treasure into a small cardboard box (an old shoe-box, or the carboard box that their Babiators came in will fit the bill perfectly) filled with straw or confetti. To take it a step further, you could even print or draw bunny footprints across the lid (see the video below for an example).


Easter for Kids Step #3:  Set up a bunny footprint trail

Your little ones will have so much fun when they wake up in the morning to find a trail of Easter bunny footprints leading them to their Easter treasure. Depending on your floor surface, you can make these footprints from chalk, children’s finger paint, or a mix of baking soda and glitter sifted onto a template (you can find a free Easter bunny footprint template here).

Or keep it super simple!! Simply hide the treats in plain sight across an area, either inside or outside, and let them have at it!!

The only thing left to do is to stand back with a steaming mug of coffee on Easter morning and enjoy the squeals of delight!  Now, THAT is the ideal Easter Sunday scenario.

Our kids are now into their tweens and teens years and they still love a good Easter egg hunt. They love the little treats we hide. And because it is a tradition that has been consistent and fun they are happy with the quality over quantity .... which is great for the reduced sugar-meltdowns as well as our budget lol.

Happy Easter Tribe!!
