Ive seen plastic eggs that you can hide and they still go seek them, then when they bring them to you you can replace them with other things like money, toys, colouring in books etc.

We normally get them each a pair of winter PJ's and maybe a book.

My kids are 7, 5 and 15 months and for Easter they get a small choccy egg/bunny, an egg hunt (with little eggs to be divided between them, an Easter/Bunny themed book and a pair of pyjamas.

My dd is 10 still believes at least I think she does. She gets a couple of eggs but u now buy her clothes, her bday falls at the same time so it makes it easier we focus on that instead

Last year for DS1 (he was 2) I hid plastic eggs and they all had something different in. I had cereal in a few so he would eat his breakfast after. I had money, freckles, and a couple eggs in the others. I loved that he got to have the hunt and didn't get too much chocolate.
This year I'm thinking of doing what one of my friends mum's used to do for her and getting him a present from the Easter bunny. I am thinking an easel for painting and I will put a choc bunny on it.

got money as I have an intolerance to dairy. Grandparents dont accept you can't eat chocolate so i'd still get a little bit but got money off mum and dad and thought that was heaps better.

I usually only buy 1 big bunny and a pack of 10 hunting eggs with new pjs or something. For my DS who is 5, i think thats more than enough considering from my parents he also gets toys and more eggs/ bunnies.
Easter is now too commercialised for my liking so try to keep it minimal if i can.
