    Default Easter- Alternative to eggs

    Easter is approaching and it's taken just shy of 7 years for me to realise the complete waste of money we pour into chocolate at this time of year, so I'm planning for something different.

    I'm thinking of giving my craft crazed 6yo a small egg, a ticket to the easter show and some easter craft to do.

    What are your plans?

    We always buy each other (sisters, BILS, hubby etc) one nice egg each from Laurents. We do a KK kinda of thing - so you only buy one egg each.

    Don't have kids yet so not sure what I will do, but yeh I like the idea of a small amount of chocolate and something else. (although I always wanted to give them an easter egg hunt)

    It's bubbas first Easter but considering he's only 3 months old there will be no chocolate for him! I have bought him a custom made Easter Bunny toy (which is just gorgeous) and a cute custom made onesie with a bunny on it.

    I will buy myself and DH some Easter eggs but we don't usually go crazy.

    DS will be 18 months so we are doing his first Easter egg hunt! I have about 25 of those egg size cadbury Easter eggs that we will place around the yard, ( i will let him eat a couple the rest DH and I will polish off !) ending in the new rabbit hutch with 2 baby bunnies inside! Then BBQ at our place for lunch with both families

    My girls are getting a Sylvanian rabbit family and accessories for Easter. I think I will wrap each piece separately so we can do a treasure hunt for them. Might get them one small token egg each as well, haven't decided on that just yet

    Only buying one chocolate small bunny and a dvd for easter. That will most likely be the only chocolate he gets this easter as i refuse to have a kid high as a kite on chocolate.

    We get one egg for each our girls and a new set of winter pj's. So flanny jimjams, slippers and a dressing gown and bed socks with the little rubber dots lol.
    I would have to buy them anyway and they love getting a whole new set. Works for us.

    before pregnancy I was never much of a chocolate eater so I always got alternative easter presents...
    Things I have got over the years are
    Slippers
    Winter PJs
    Ugg boots
    One year I got a rabbit (a real one)

    This year I am ALL about the chocolate eggs though!

    My girls are each getting a Cadbury humpty dumpty egg (on sale at Woolies last week for $2.50) and a colouring book. Will also get them some new felt pens.
    We're visiting a friend over easter and I think she will do an Easter egg hunt for them.
    My girls go crazy on sugar, so we don't let them have much. I actually just threw out their half-eaten box of smarties from their Christmas stockings and a goody bag they got from a party last September.

    We do a little egg hunt, they end up with about 5 little hollow cadbury eggs each.

    Ds#1 is getting a ticket to the easter show (we arent bringing ds#2 as he will just freak the heck out) and ds#2 will get a little art set.
