Easter Egg Hunt

I love watching the joy my kids have in celebrating new life on Easter Sunday with an Easter Egg hunt. The shrieks of delight when they find an egg and show me the stash they have found is priceless.

The last few years I have purchased plastic eggs and filled them with special treats and little toys for our Easter egg hunt. You can pick up the plastic eggs from supermarkets, bargain shops, Spotlight and craft shops. Since we can’t have the usual chocolate eggs due to very high amines and we steer clear of all  flavours, colours and preservatives. So here are a few ideas of what I have use to put inside the plastic eggs to make it as fun and Failsafe as possible for my kids. Please remember to always check ingredients!

 Easter Egg Hunt

 You can easily do an Easter egg hunt without lollies and sweets. Lots of the bargain shops, party supply shops and department stores have cheap little toys and accessories you can use to fill them with. I usually start buying a month earlier as I spot things suitable in the shops. Just remember to be aware of little parts for kids under 3 years.

Enjoy creating the hunt! Have a blessed Easter and stay safe.
