Easter egg hunts are brilliant fun for children of all ages, this Easter will be the first Easter that Emily understands what is actually going on. Of course I have put together a Easter basket for her just like last year but I have really had my heart set on a Easter egg hunt for her. We live in a flat which means it is terribly hard to have a Easter egg hunt here, so we are abandoning home to borrow someone elses garden. I thought I would share with you the things that I have brought for Emily's Easter egg hunt. I tried to get a variety of things as I didn't want it all to be chocolate but of course there is some chocolate and even some for her Daddy as I'm sure that he will want to get involved (in the eating part at least).
I searched high and low for different things to include in the Easter egg hunt, it isn't as easy as you may think as a lot of Easter gifts are chocolate. Emily does have her Easter basket which will be at the end of her Easter egg hunt - as the last thing for her to find. I also have some cute little Easter nests and of course little chicks to go in them, these will hold the smaller eggs in Emily's Easter egg hunt. I found some gorgeous little egg shaped stamps, these have to be my favourite find. You separate each side of the shell to reveal a stamp inside. Emily has four of these in her Easter egg hunt, each has a different stamp, a chick, a sheep, a Easter egg and a bunny.
I also found some adorable Egg shaped bubbles, Like most toddlers Emily is fascinated with bubbles. She loves to catch them and make them pop. These came in a pack of 3, red, blue and yellow. Emily only has two as we gifted one to a friend, who I am sure will love them just as much as Emily does. We also found some Easter themed temporary tattoo's. Emily hasn't ever had these before, so it will be interesting to see just how she reacts to them. They were inexpensive and the pack of 36, is full of various different designs, from bunnies, to chicks and eggs. Of course I won't be using all 36 and many have been kept back for the next few years to come. We also have a few chocolate items, such as Easter chocolate coins, Mini kinder eggs, Smarties eggs and white chocolate eggs. I have divided these into plastic eggs which I will hide for Emily to find. I brought a few packets of coloured eggs from the pound shops, and some chick ones which are my favourite.
What do you have planned for Easter Sunday? I would love to hear your thoughts.
