22 Mar Fun Tips For Making This Easter Extra Special
Easter’s on its way and we have some great tips to help you throw the best Easter Egg hunt and celebration ever!
Hunting for Easter Eggs takes a lot of energy so we were thrilled to see the recipe for “Bunny Bait” from Brown Paper Packages on Pinterest. (Check out our Pinterest Easter board here). This snack mix is perfect to hand out to the kids to munch on while they’re searching for their eggs and it will help hold them over until brunch, especially if they’re used to eating earlier in the day. You can also use the individual snack bags as place settings for the adults at your party or just fill a large bowl for everyone to share.
The “Bunny Bait” recipe consists of Reese’s Pieces Easter Eggs, pretzels, mini marshmallows and honey roasted peanuts, but you can alter the recipe to include any of your other favorite snacks.
Don’t forget to leave some “Bunny Bait” out the night before to make sure the Easter Bunny knows where to leave the baskets! It will add to the magic of Easter Morning for the whole family.
When the kids wake up and run downstairs to see if the Easter Bunny came, they can put on their personalized Official Egg Hunter T-Shirts before they start tearing through all the chocolate and messy candy in their baskets. The adorable design can be personalized with your little one’s name in either pink or blue font and can be printed on youth or infant t-shirts, toddler sweatshirts, infant rompers or a baby bib.
The cute outfits make for a great family photo op and will also help protect their nice Easter clothes from candy and grass stains while they’re searching for eggs.
Once they have their snacks and outfit – they’re ready to hunt!
We know the Easter Bunny usually hides eggs filled with money or candy, but we have a great idea that will add an extra surprise to this year’s eggs … turn the hunt into a search to find the secret message the Easter Bunny left for your kids!
You start by personalizing our Happy Easter Puzzle with your children’s names and placing a couple of the puzzle pieces inside each egg (If there is more than 1 child involved in the hunt, we suggest designating a certain color for each child so you can make sure they find all the puzzle pieces that belong to them).
Then watch as their excitement grows with each new piece as they hurry to put the puzzle together and try to uncover the Easter Bunny’s special message!
This new twist can help balance out the competition for kids who sometimes struggle to find eggs but are great at puzzles, and it’s also great for competitive families because they can offer an extra prize to the child who completes their puzzle first.
Kids will love that the Easter Bunny left them a special message and game with their name on it, and moms and dads will love that putting the puzzle together after the crazy egg hunt will help calm down the kids before the family heads out for church or brunch!
