Signs of spring are slowly starting to emerge. Flowers are beginning to pop up in our yard and the kids are excited about Easter. Every year, they look forward to dressing up in a spring inspired outfit.
We go to church and then visit with cousins for an Easter Egg Hunt. Seeing what the Easter Bunny has left is also something my kids look forward to. Every year, we try to make our Easter Egg Hunt special and unique, so keeping it fun and interesting is really important. I don’t like to do the same thing every year – so below are some ways I”ve changed it up in years past.
3 Unique Ideas for an Easter Egg Hunt
- Color Hunt – This type of hunt works best when you have varied ages. If you assign each child a color, then you don’t end up with a crafty 6 year old with 15 eggs and a crying 3 year old with 2 eggs.
- Scavenger Hunt – This requires a bit of planning, but if you plan out clues and hiding spots, kids can guess where each egg is. You can also divide up the clues to each child, with varying levels of difficulty. Another option is they all work together and there is an egg for everyone at the location.
- Money Egg Hunt – Instead of hiding candy and prizes, you can hide “Bunny Money” in each egg. After the kids have tallied up their money, they can shop at the store (i.e. on my dining room table – baskets filled with trinkets from the dollar bins)
Aside from the Easter Egg Hunt – the kids’ clothes are the next important thing. It doesn’t feel like Easter unless they are in their ‘Sunday Best’ and Gymboree is a go-to for cute, high quality looks for any occasion, big or small.
I chose the Duppioni Dress in blue for one of my twins; it brings out the blue in her eyes. The details on this dress are stunning and timeless! As for her, she says she feels like a princess in it. Win-win.
My other twin, who is more blonde, loved the Lemon Print Dress. The dress was fitting — the lemon theme – fitting her bright and vibrant personality. And the bow detail is everything!
I paired each dress with a coordinating ruffle cardigan; perfect for that little bit of chill left in the air.
The coordinating floral headband is too cute.
As for my son, he’s 6, and suddenly too cool for the camera. This is what I purchased him or Easter! This pink shirt is perfect for the season. Paired with the anchor motif shorts and sweater vest. It’s going to be a great look beyond Easter, to0 (vacation in Cape Cod this summer….perfect!)
