Easter Egg Hunt

For our Family Easter Egg Hunt, Boo Sheep came up with a great idea.  We knew that we were going to do lunch (sandwiches, chips, pickles) and then have an Egg Hunt (little kids in the front yard, big kids in the backyard).  We also knew that we wanted to do something “special”, especially for our Caterpillars – since we decided not to do Easter Baskets.  (The bunny doesn’t visit our house, either way.)  So, I picked up 7 puzzles (one for each kid) and labeled 9 eggs (per kid) and filled them with puzzle pieces.  The kids then had to find their eggs, and then put their puzzle together.  Once all the puzzles were done – then we would give them their Easter Card from the family (Boo had given each kid a FroYo Gift Card, Cookie had given each kid a Barnes & Noble Gift Card, and I had gotten each kid a Target Gift Card).

The idea was to do 48 piece Disney puzzles for the Little Girls (GO and Sister Sheep), 100 piece Star Wars Puzzles for the Middle Boys (CW and Brother Sheep), and 101 piece Landscape Puzzles for the Older Kids (B10, CAM, and OPM).  This did NOT go as planned.  The little kids (GO, Sister Sheep, Brother Sheep, and Went) found their eggs quickly, and then it took a bit of Adult Help, but they got their puzzles done and then played games with each other.  The older kids puzzles – those were HARD.  Even with adult help, they took over an hour.

Overall, it was a fun afternoon.  And very different.  We’ve already decided that this will be our Easter Tradition – next year, we’ll have another little cousin in the mix – and Went will be able to actually put together a puzzle of sorts.  I’m on the lookout for awesome puzzles!  Plus, the kids really seemed to like the cards.
