    Ive still not settled into an easter 'tradition' we change it up a bit each year.
    We dont do outdoor egg hunts as have animals that would likely eat the eggs (foil & all).

    I think this year will be a small hunt (one bag of red tulip small eggs as the trail) and one bigger egg or bunny & a small toy at the end.

    My mum gives them pj's for easter and MIL gives them all a new winter jacket.

    Im an easter egg choc snob and only buy red tulip or cadbury eggs

    I like to buy Cadbury and a new egg cup or mug for them.
    The plastic ones are a great idea. My DS is nearly 2 and I wanted to start a hunt this year but don't want to rely just on chocolate.

    Default How do you Easter?

    We leave carrots and water for the Easter bunny. In turn Easter bunny will have a bite and leave paw prints through the house.
    Smallish eggs will be hidden through the house. A big egg will be placed somewhere with new winter pjs, a couple of books and puzzles.
    We will have around 20 over for a bbq lunch.
    Can't wait!!!
    Oh and eggs must be Cadbury or Lindt.

    I have never thought of water and carrots for the bunny. new winter pjs and a small amount of chocolate, for my children and now similar for my grandchildren. one grandson cannot have chocolate or sugar eggs, he is allergic to dairy and egg. so I have clothes and a toy, and I think maybe $10 for each to spend how they please. I like to eat hot cross buns on Good Friday, so I only buy one or two packets depending on if there will be extra people. some prawns, and salads with fresh bread rolls for lunch, if there is a family gathering. very little chocolate, perhaps other lollies, or treats. marie

    DD's 2.5, and I think this year will be the first that we do something special.

    When I was a kid, we always had an egg hunt. We did ours inside because it was usually too hot/too many ants etc. for having one outside. We might have had a special breakfast or lunch, but it wasn't consistent over the years.

    So far I have a little Peppa Pig dining set for DD (bought reduced after Christmas), and I'm thinking of getting some small chocolate eggs, and using some hollow plastic eggs we have to do a hunt. Not sure whether we'll do anything else, although we'll probably have lunch with my parents sometime "for" Easter.

    I forgot the religious part of Easter. I do go to the church services on Good Friday, and Easter Saturday night./ Easter Sunday. For me, the religious side of Easter is the most important, and the commercial part is not so much. marie.

    Do eggs ever get hidden in the garden or elsewhere?

    Do you have a favourite brand or product you like to buy?

    Considering my options this year
    Each year the kids get some chocolate - this year it's a three pack of small dark, white and milk chocolate lambs, a pair of PJs and a book.

    We do an egg hunt in the garden first thing in the morning.

    We have hot cross buns on Good Friday.

    I buy my chocolate from Oxfam.

    Pjs every year and something else with them. This year the kids are getting a personalised book. And of course chocolate which I will most likely end up eating lol
