Easter Egg Hunt
There is no religious element in our Easter celebration, here the family activity is all about the chocolate. This year our kids know the truth about Easter, all the fun is in the hunt for the eggs and knowing some truth about how the chocolate actually gets hidden about the place did not spoil it for anyone.
I was in charge of hiding the eggs and was thankful for the longer grass after the debacle with the birds 2 years ago; in the 10 minutes between when the eggs were hidden and the children were taken out to find them birds had stolen at least half and left some wrappers about as evidence. This year everyone just had to be careful where they stepped and at the end of the day it was the eggs wrapped in green hidden among the clover that were the hardest to find.
