Easter Egg Hunt

Easter is kind of a big deal for our family since our faith is based on a resurrected Savior. Therefore, after attending church on Easter Sunday, the entire day is spent with family and close friends celebrating. There is, of course, always lots of food and even more fun and fellowship to be had. But for the kids, there is always an anxious anticipation in the air for the big Easter egg hunt.

Easter Egg Hunt

The kids simply love the art of discovery in the yearly Easter Egg Hunt. They know that there is money and candy out there waiting so they are ready to go! Of course, since Monkey is only 2 she does not quite understand. Last year she would find an egg, sit down and open it and be done. Needless to say, she did not find many eggs. Therefore, we decided it would be fun to set up a mini-hunt for her and the girls. This would give Monkey the chance to “practice” before heading out with all the “big dogs” next weekend. So, after putting the girls to bed one night my husband and I went to Walmart to grab some things for our Easter egg hunt. We would surprise the girls the next day with the activity!

We were greeted by a large sign that hung over head with the word “Easter” on it and knew we were in the right place. As we made our way to the seasonal section of the store, we saw Easter candy and decor on almost every end cap of the checkout aisles. If you forgot some while shopping it would be readily available by the registers.

Easter Starburst

We found our way to the Easter aisles of our local Walmart and found a colorful display of baskets, plush toys, novelty items, plastic eggs and more. So much to choose from but really so much the kids do not really need. We grabbed each of the girls a basket, a foam rabbit mask {they love these}, some bubbles, and a princess coloring craft and were off. The aisles were lined from front to back with much more candy varieties. I found the Starburst jelly beans but hubby said it would stick to the kids’ teeth so we moved on.

Colgate

As we made our way to the back of the store, and before we could get to the health and beauty area, we found another large, blue Easter pallet full of great Colgate products. There were regular kids toothbrushes, electronic toothbrushes, and toothpaste for every age! We grabbed 2 electronic Dora the Explorer toothbrushes for both Monkey and Princess and a SpongeBob one for JJ. We figured after all the candy the Easter holiday will bring they would need a great toothbrush. Plus, my hubby was hoping that the electronic toothbrush would make brushing a bit more entertaining and not as tedious of a task during the before-school routine.

We then finished up with a few more items and headed home to prepare the baskets while the girls slept. The next day we took them in the big field behind our house for a mini Easter Egg Hunt. The girls had a blast looking for eggs by the water’s edge.

Once we got back home they were each allowed to eat the treasure found within one egg. Monkey was upset that we made her wait. After tearing into their chocolate, they wanted to test out their new Colgate toothbrushes. I think my hubby was right about making it a more joyous event. {But shhhh… don’t tell him I said “he was right!”}
