My memory for E was a no brainer. Every Easter week I get very nostalgic because I really miss the annual Easter Egg hunts that I used to have for my grandkids, 2 of my sisters' grandkids and sometimes a few extra kids. We would have from 6 to 10 kids and did we have a good time!
Now this wasn't a hide a few eggs and send the kids out to play afternoon. This was a very organized, planned down to every detail type of afternoon with nothing left to chance. I had as much fun as the kids did!
First the kids enjoyed pizza, hot dogs or whatever meal I had fixed that year. Then came a special dessert like a bunny cake, cookies, ice cream or whatever I had made. Then each of the kids would get a goody bag full of Easter trinkets, toys and candy. I had as much fun finding this junk as the kids did playing with it!
While the kids were getting their bellies full, someone would carefully hide the eggs in the yard. Once this was finished and the kids were ready, they flew out the back door with baskets tightly in hand. Amidst squeals of delight and scurrying feet, all the plastic eggs filled with surprises managed to find their way into a child's basket. When everyone's basket was full and there were no more eggs to be found all the kids would head into the house where they could pour out their treasures and see just what they had found.
At this point the afternoons varied some years. Sometimes I would have crafts or games planned that the kids would play to try and win prizes or sometimes they would just go outside and play. Either way it was a fun time for all.
Now, all of our grandkids are older and think they have outgrown the Easter egg hunts. I, for one, really miss them. Holidays are never the same when the kids grow up.
Until next time...that's my view.
