Easter Egg {Lunch} Hunt

Happy Monday Friends!

It snowed over the weekend, so it is really not feeling like Easter week around here.  But it is!  I LOVE this time of year…For me, it is one of the most special with the most meaning.  To celebrate, I am sharing Easter activities ALL week long…Yay!

To kick off the week, I’m sharing our very favorite from last year.   How about an Easter Egg {Lunch} Hunt!  We did this last year and it was so much fun…I think we hunted for our lunch the entire week before Easter.

How I did it…

I gathered up empty plastic eggs in a variety of colors.  The larger eggs work great for this because you can fit more/larger food items in them.  Then, using a permanent marker, I wrote the letters for each boys name on the eggs.  One letter per egg.  All additional eggs simply had first initials, A and O.  I filled the eggs with small lunch food items such as: mini beef sticks, pretzel chips, goldfish, cut up veggies, fruit and dessert…jelly beans and peeps.

If you are lucky enough to have nice weather…Hide your eggs outside and have a picnic.

Note:  I think this idea originated from Family Fun Magazine.  I just adapted it to work for us and to make it a learning opportunity.

Have Fun this week making memories with your kiddos!

    What a great idea. Where were you when my kiddos were young. I will just have to keep this in mind for when I have grandkids!
