happy easter

Happy belated Easter!!

I had the idea to have an Easter egg hunt in a field after first reading “Happy Easter, Little Critter” to our children last year. It’s one of our favourite Little Critter books and it’s just so darn cute.

So last year, I hid some eggs in the field directly behind our house and one afternoon that Easter weekend the kids searched for some eggs. I documented it all. Even though I was newly pregnant and very nauseated, we all had so much fun.

This year, I decided to hide the eggs in the farmer’s field beside the park that we walk to almost on a daily basis. It has a few more hills and trees than ours, and I thought that it would be a different experience for Remy and Wilder.

Also, baby sister was here to join us this year and she certainly made it all much cuter!

In all honesty, they love searching for eggs more than the gifts and the chocolate they receive at Easter. I hope to continue this tradition for many years to come. (I may even include the neighbour children next year just like in the book!)

Hope your Easter was hopping!

easter egg hunt

In one of the books that I read to Remy, Happy Easter, Little Critter, all of the church-going critter children have an Easter egg hunt in a field. I loved that idea so much, so I decided to have one of our own!

I bought the cutest baskets from Michael’s, eggs from Dollarama, and made them bunny ear floral crowns. Then I waited for a warm day. I told them that the Easter bunny would be coming twice this year- once to do an egg hunt in the field, and once when it was really Easter. They were just so, so, so excited. It was the sweetest thing!

The Easter bunny left them baskets and a sign outside …

then laid out the eggs in the field …

and off we went to find them.

This will now be a yearly tradition for us. I can’t express enough how much joy it brought to everyone. The neighbour even joined in!

Have a hoppy Easter, everyone!
