Easter: The Kids Go on an Egg Hunt!

03.31.2013

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

While my family and I recognize Easter as the center of our Christian faith, it didn’t stop us from coming together as a family to eat, celebrate and treat the children to a fun, traditional Spring Easter egg hunt!

The plans were made quite last-minute, but it turned out to be a fun, festive celebration. While we rejoiced in our hearts of our Lord, Jesus Christ’s resurrection, we also rejoiced in the company of each other, and the fun our children had.

Here are a few pictures to commemorate our Easter celebration:

My “Chickadee Cupcakes.” I glued googly-eyes and small, orange foam triangles onto yellow popsicle sticks. For an added touch, you can use white icing for the cupcakes for the “hatched egg.” I opted not to use icing since I knew the day would already be filled with sweet goodies.

Colourful eggs filled with stickers, chocolates, jelly beans, gum, and messages of Jesus’ resurrection.

Since I knew that the kids wouldn’t get the same number of eggs on their egg hunt, I created individual “Bunny Bags” filled with treats for each one of them. The “Bunny Bags” were filled with wholesome snacks, candies, chocolates, and stickers.

Because my nephew, Elias, is the youngest and can’t eat chocolate or candies yet, I got him his own special treat—his favourite type of toy in the world—a school bus!

The buffet: Chicken fennel, BBQ chicken, pasta salad, macaroni salad, veggie lasagne, shrimp endives, banana bread, cupcakes. Yummy!

What did your Easter celebration look like?

Did you attend a special Christian service in celebration of today?

Did your children enjoy an Easter egg hunt?

In light of Jesus’ resurrection, what are you most grateful for today?

If you don’t celebrate Easter, what are you most looking forward to this spring?

  1. Wow everything looks so yummy and creative!Thanks for sharing pictures of the cute children.Seems everyone had fun.Thanks be to the Lord for all his blessings.

  2. We had a quiet day, just my husband and I, but it was nice! Your day looks like a lot of fun (and a lot of work for you!). I’m glad you got to sit down for at least long enough to have your picture taken!

    1. Thanks Laurie. It was a surprise. We don’t usually do an Easter egg hunt for the kids, but now that they’re a little bigger we decided to give it a try. Lunch was great. Glad you had a quiet day. They’re just as wonderful!
