So our Internet is down at home and luckily I have an iPad on loan. So this will be short and sweet and without a photo for now.
How does the Easter Bunny work at your house? Here’s how “he” operates at ours:
The girls actually left their baskets out tonight for the bunny to come get until Easter. Our kids have been playing with the baskets a lot and I really want to put them all together sometime tomorrow while they are at my mom’s…not after bed. So they were actually excited to leave them out tonight.
The bunny brings small toys, stickers, etc. and a small chocolate bunny and a couple of chocolate eggs. Not much candy at all. I need to raid my gift closet to see what $1 bin items I’ve stashed away. Henry’s getting a beach towel. I think I have some princess jewelry and gardening gloves (per request) for the girls.
The bunny doesn’t come overnight…he stops by while we are at church Sunday morning. This gets us out the door to church quickly…and is a great threat at mass to stay well-behaved…or else the bunny may not visit. Mommy is always forgetting something once everyone is in the car anyway…so when I run back in to put out the baskets…no big deal so far.
The bunny doesn’t hide the baskets nor eggs. We do a couple of different egg hunts – neighborhood, friends, and a family one before Easter dinner at my aunt and uncle’s…but none at our house yet.
And you? How does it work at your house? How do you in corporate the real reasons for Easter with toddlers? What does the bunny bring? Egg hunts? Hidden baskets? Share your traditions!
