Easter is Sunday (no joke)!
If you have little ones at home who still like to do Easter Egg Hunts but you are looking for alternatives to candy, my friend shared these non-candy, healthier ideas with me and I thought they were fun ideas to pass along with you...
Baby Carrots or Grapes
Seeds to grow flowers in the Spring
Chuck E. Cheese coins
Hair Bands/Hair Bows
Play-doh Eggs (can purchase at stores like Target and Walmart)
Mini Nail Polish
Little plastic dinosaurs and/or chicks
Fruit snacks or yogurt covered raisins
Mini Glow Sticks
Small container of Bubbles
Plastic Army Men
Hot Wheels/Matchbox Cars
Also, I found this clever Easter Egg Fitness Treasure Hunt that will keep the kids moving while they're on the hunt! You just write various fitness activities for them to do and clues on little pieces of paper and place the papers inside plastic eggs. Then place the eggs in their specific locations. The egg-hunters must do the exercise in order to move on to the next location. So clever!
You could even do this activity with friends, family members or neighbors! 😉
Although egg hunts and bunnies are fun, Easter is so much more than that. If you're wanting to learn more about the meaning of Easter OR are looking for a Good Friday/Easter service to attend, please send me an email <firstname.lastname@example.org> and I'd be happy to help!
