Easter Bunny Booty

March 30, 2013

My Easter Bunny duty is done for another year! I was not super-prepared this year as I had desperately hoped to be out of town. But I am not. So Easter Bunny I must be. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t actually talk about the Easter Bunny with my kids AT ALL. If I’m not going to lie to them about Santa, I am certainly not going to lie to them about a giant magical rabbit bringing them baskets of goodies! Besides, I like to get all the credit for the good stuff that goes on around here. We do Easter Baskets on Saturday because it is always a fun surprise for my kids (they never remember) and it doesn’t interfere with getting ready for Church on Sunday and it’s a good separation from the real, meaningful Easter.

1–Mentos–an aunt in Kenya introduced my kids to these, and they LOVE them
2–Yan Yams and Koalas
3–Fruit Roll-Ups and pink lemonade Bunny snacks; my kids have declared jelly-beans “disgusting”
4–A punching balloon
5–Fresh sidewalk chalk
6–A new toothbrush–I never miss a holiday!
7–A new water bottle
8–Something sporty: scooter for Amos, soccer gear for PJ, and workout clothes/bike helmet for Lily–we are ALL ready for them to get outside!
9–Star Wars Guess Who–something to play together on a Sunday
10–A sling-shot. This is a special family item and I started to get worried about giving them to my kids until I had a brilliant idea: They each get a pack of ping-pong balls or practice golf balls (basically tiny wiffle balls) to go with them. Since non of their friends have sling-shots, I am hopeful they will feel satisfied to shoot with this light-weight ammunition. I have made each of them a soda-bottle target for practice.

Because it was one of my favorite childhood memories, I created a scavenger hunt to the baskets. I hope this hunt will be long enough and fun enough to let me sleep in a bit. One of the clues is located in the sandbox, which I have newly filled with water gel beads. I am crossing my fingers that will entertain them for a while!

    Wow. That’s impressive for someone who doesn’t believe in the Easter bunny. I’ve got nothing for my kids as of Saturday morning. Ugh.

    I’d like to see what you’d come up with if you *were* super-prepared…
