What are you giving your current children as Easter gifts? Do you have a big gift or just an egg hunt?
We don't do anything big. They usually get some things from grandparents (my kids got a package in the mail - a new outfit each, and some chocolates) so for us, the egg hunt is pretty much it. Last year we did a new DVD for each kid too, but we really don't spend a lot on gifts in our family.
My MIL does the egg hunt and we will attend one at a friends house and possibly one at the YMCA that we belong to.
We do a basket. No big gifts in it. Usually some crayons, coloring book, reading book, bubbles, etc. I throw in a little bit of candy, but between grandparents and school, he get plenty of candy that weekend. I try to cap the spend at $20.
I was thinking of cutting on bunny footprints this year leading from his room down to his Easter basket as something fun to do! I get these ideas, but am not the best at following through on them. lol!
Reed really likes the Easter Bunny for some reason. We are going to dye eggs on Saturday and maybe make bunny rice krispie treats tonight. Do you think they will stay fresh till SUnday?
I do an Easter basket for the kids with a few small things in it (like DS is getting some little cars and DD is getting sidewalk chalk) plus I usually do swimsuits, but my DD has too many and is obsessed with dresses so she's getting a sundress and DS is getting a swimsuit. Then we do candy and egg hunt at our house.
This is our first year el is big enough to understand but since I can't shop we are letting my mil do a basket for her. She got her jamis books and im not sure what else. They also do an egg hunt for all the kids in the family at the get together so she will get to do that this year! They limit how many each kid can pick up bc there are so many of them.
Well, we are going to be getting baby chicks after our trip in a couple weeks (so about in another month). I thought it would be fun to do a "chick" theme for Easter. They are getting a little chocolate chick in their baskets, and a few chocolate eggs. I also got them a book (to share) about raising chicks... Chick Days: An Absolute Beginner's Guide to Raising Chickens from Hatching to Laying: Jenna Woginrich, Mars Vilaubi: 9781603425841: Amazon.com: Books I hope the book is a good one, because I need to learn too! I hope it doesn't take TOOOOO long before they get to the point where they start laying. Does anyone know? Oh, and their Grandpa sent each of them a kite.
Ooooh chicks is so exciting! We had chickens when I was a little girl. Fresh eggs is SO nice!
Do you have problems with prey animals there? Around here the raccoon like to eat chickens. UGH!
UGH! So do you need to have high chicken wire pens? Around here they have to be VERY protected because raccoon are so sneaky and can climb! Those thumbs sure help them get into trouble!
