After a couple of days with both of my children feeling a little unwell, we opted for Easter Sunday, just with our little family. Today was the first Easter we have given presents (bike helmets) and organised an Easter egg hunt. Normally we catch up with our extended family on Easter Sunday and they are the ones that would normally organise the egg hunt. Also our children often receive chocolate gifts from others around Easter time, so we haven’t needed to give our children any chocolate at this time. We usually just focus on family time.
After my children went to bed last night, my husband and I went downstairs and decorated the table, laid out the clues and hid the eggs. We used these re-usable plastic ones which we filled with our own treats (not chocolate). We had so much fun setting this all up.
Both of my children just loved the egg hunt that they spent the next hour or so setting up multiple egg hunts for each other to find.

Next weeks posts– we are on school holidays now so I will just post about whatever we get up to over the next two weeks. We don’t have much planned as I want to leave it open to rest and play. We will likely end up spending lots of time bike riding and swimming.
