Happy Easter

Unknown Mami

Today we celebrated Easter with the kids.
First, everyone took turns painting the eggs. Since our eggs are brown, dye doesn't show up as well as paint, so we choose that medium.


Next the young people hid the eggs in the playground. 



The theme was 'hidden in plain sight'.

We sent the kids into the playground in stages: first the toddlers, then the preschoolers, then the kindergarteners, to give a fair chance to each child.

The plan was that they would find two eggs and use those to redeem their chocolate.



Moriah, Peter and Nathan (otherwise known as my three little kittens) were a bit perplexed by the whole idea. We let them off the hook once they'd found one egg each.

The older ones enjoyed it much more.


Of course, everyone knows the best part of any easter egg hunt is the chocolate!

Getting every last bit out of the wrapper takes concentration.

Happy Easter!

  1. I LOVE the idea of painting the eggs!

    And of course the hiding and finding is the BEST part - - - unless you turn the eggs into deviled eggs later. (I wonder why we don't call them angeled eggs fo Easter???)

  8. Looks like fun. Our ministry is in an urban setting. Hiding eggs among the cement buildings and parking lots would not work. Next year... maybe we can visit a park or something.
