In the last few years the older kids have become very fond of Easter Egg hunts. Not necessarily for the goodies inside of the eggs, but for the hunt of the eggs themselves. Last year we stepped up the game and bought a pack of the nature eggs that look like grass and rocks. The kids had time trials to see who could find all of them fastest.
We had our neighborhood egg hunt the weekend before Easter. The kids helped put out eggs for the younger ones (including Ruby). Ruby did not get overly excited about the eggs: we had to wake her up from a nap for the hunt. Eli and Maddux found their 12 eggs and moved on to playing with their friends.
But when it came to our family egg hunt, they were all business. After church, we put out several dozen (empty) eggs in the backyard. Eli and Maddux ran around like crazy to find them all. Once they found them, we hid them again. And again. They even hid them for Grandma Cathie and Grandpa Jim to find. Egg-Mania.
After they finished with that, Grandma Cathie guided them in making chocolate 'nests' and decorating them with peeps and chocolate eggs. Yeah....they kinda liked that activity too.
