This year Erin is 3 and really, it’s the first year that she’s been any kind of excited about Easter. I think going to nursery, talking about Easter and doing activities about Easter have really helped to pique her interest. In previous years, we haven’t really done anything for Easter apart from buying Erin a few treats or eggs. This year thought we wanted to do something a bit more special and make a bigger deal of it.
This year was Erin’s first Easter Egg hunt!
I really would have liked to have set the whole thing up the nice before but the grass had been damp in the mornings so it wasn’t really very practical. Also, with the weather being so warm over the Easter weekend I couldn’t leave eggs outside too long either just in case they melted. John and I set up the Easter Egg hunt only about 10 minutes before we let Erin do it. My Mum was here watching Erin so we could do it without her knowing.
As soon as Erin went outside she spied one Easter egg and got so excited about the hunt. We don’t have a very interesting garden so John and I had to get creative with where we put some of the eggs. We had way more eggs than we thought so in the end we just threw some of them around the lawn but Erin didn’t care.
I am so glad that this year was Erin’s first Easter egg hunt. Seeing the excitement on her face was the absolute best and I could see just how much fun she had looking everywhere in the garden for the eggs. I think we’ve decided to try to make the garden more interesting for next year though with better hiding places!
