Well life can get chaotic at times, but it sure fun and entertaining.
Three kids, three dogs, two cats and a bunny and the house can get chaotic! But we made it through Easter morning. Now the kids are getting all sugared up with their chocolate breakfast!
This year was my daughter’s first real Easter where she understood a little bit what was happening. She was so excited. It did not take too long for her to catch on that chocolate was hiding all over the house!
We hid the easter eggs in plastic eggs so the dogs would not eat the chocolate over night! It worked out well. My daughter has been into her play eggs lately since she got a huge play kitchen. By the way, the play kitchen we got her is amazing and the best one I found. It is on sale right now at Toys R Us. It is called the Sizzle and Serve kitchen. It was actually hard to find and I paid full price $169.99 ouch! The sale is $50.00 off which is actually a good sale because I have never seen this specific kitchen go on sale before.
The kitchen is exactly like the one pictured above, but do not buy it from Amazon right now! It is a lot cheaper at Toys R Us right now! It is an amazing kitchen because it has the bbq with it as well. It makes realistic sounds for the bbq and the burners. It is really amazing.
Anyway, that was an aside….we were talking about Easter!
When I was growing up my parents always hid the Easter eggs and then there were clues that led us to the big chocolate bunny or gift. I have such fond memories of reading the clues and hunting for the big chocolate. We did the clue method for the kids this year. My daughter was too young to read the clues, so her older siblings helped her out. Everyone’s face was amazing when they solved the clues and found their “treasure.” It is a great way to do Easter and the kids love being a little detective.
Of course the kids had to know that the Easter Bunny had been here when they woke up, so they woke up to their special bucket and Easter Bunny ears in the bucket, in the middle of their room. I think they had their bucket in their hands before they were even really awake!
It has become a tradition to let the kids watch a new Easter video on Easter morning as well. This year they are watching the Toopy & Binoo Funny Bunny dvd. They love it. Like I said in an earlier post, my daughter is absolutely crazy about Toopy & Binoo.
We also get them a special Easter book (to help encourage reading and they love stories). There are so many amazing Easter books out there. You can pretty much get an Easter book with any character out there now. It all just depends who your kids are into that given week!
We hope that you are having a great Easter.
