While walking through the grocery store the other day, I was delighted to see the arrival of the Easter chocolates. Chocolate is my favourite go-to treat. When I saw the eggs, all lined up on the shelves, my mind immediately jumped to thoughts of spring. I cannot get through spring without indulging in one…or two…Cadbury Crème Eggs . I grabbed a couple (in their new easy to open packaging) as a treat. After slugging through a long, cold winter is there any greater reward than spring and Cadbury Crème Eggs?
Outdoor Easter Egg Hunt
Combine spring with chocolate and you have Easter. This year we are planning on switching things up for our Easter egg hunt – we are going to be taking it outside. You know we love outdoor adventures and scavenger hunts. In the past we have searched for signs of spring, created magical maps and gone on an Earth Day scavenger hunt. It’s only natural that we would take on an outdoor Easter egg hunt.
What I don’t want to do is overly complicate things, the event is all about the chocolate, the candies and the hunt. I have created a series of free printables to help make the outdoor Easter egg hunt simple and fun for everyone. Click the link to print off your own Outdoor Easter Egg Hunt props.
It is easy to turn these printables into lawn signs – just print them on card stock and tape a stick, or skewer to the back of the sign. Poke the signs into the lawn and help lead the kids to the hidden treats.
Place the note introducing the egg hunt in a place that will be easily spotted by the kids when they come downstairs Easter morning…and they are off to the races.
The best thing about these printable signs is that they can be used any time of the year – it’s always a great time to have a hunt for hidden chocolate eggs.
Now that spring is officially on its way and the milk chocolate mini eggs and Crème Egg candies have arrived at the grocery store, I think it’s time to hunt for my very own Crème Egg…I have to make sure the kids don’t find all of those!
