Easter Eggs | Pin of the Week

Our pin of the week comes from the blog Sew Many Ways. If you have a big Easter egg hunt at your house every year or have multiple children who are always fighting over the eggs, you are going to love this idea!

To make the egg hunt fair and simple, assign each child a color to collect. To help them remember their color, purchase or make coordinating colored baskets or buckets for each child. Here are directions to make colored buckets at sewmanyways.com!

If you’re having trouble thinking of things to put inside the eggs besides candy, some alternatives are toy cars, bracelets, socks, spare change, stickers, or stick-on tattoos. If you have additional ideas for Easter egg candy alternatives or want to share your family’s Easter tradition please leave a comment below.

Make sure you check out our Pinterest page to see more ideas like this, fun activities for kids, tips for parents, healthy recipes, and more.

Happy Easter!

    Ideas for filling eggs: Puffs for wee ones, smaller crackers and treats (think animal crackers, oyster crackers, and the like), and coins. Also, the color-coding is admittedly easier and simpler -- mostly for the adults. But it takes away a(nother) valuable opportunity teach kids important social lessons, such as sharing, being polite, older kids helping younger kids, taking turns, and others. We let the little ones have a chance to go first and find a few and then "help" the older children look for eggs. The older ones are expected to share what's found together. This seems more in line with the spirit of Easter/Passover instead of a search where a child focuses only on his/her color.
