Spring is officially here! The flowers are blooming, the weather is perfect, and Easter season is upon us. Whether your family celebrates with Easter baskets, a special meal, or crafting the day away, we have almost all experienced the joys of the egg hunt.
I remember desperately running and collecting eggs filled with candy, knick-knacks, and sometimes even money. Now as a parent, I get to be creative and fill the eggs with all kinds of goodies.
This year, I was so excited to find a new Easter egg hunt tradition. Gifts.com has created Easter egg coupons to fill the eggs as a unique alternative to candy. These printable Easter egg coupons include both meaningful and silly activities for all ages like a lunch date with mom and dad or breakfast for dinner. In addition to the 32 pre-set coupons, there are also blank templates so you can write in your own coupons and prizes. The best part... all you need is a printer!
And of course every Easter Bunny (looking at you, Mom or Dad) needs a few more ideas than just eggs to fill the colored baskets on Easter Sunday morning.
Here are a few suggestions for the little bunnies in your life.
1. New Spring Outfit Everyone knows that Easter Sunday is a time for bright, springy, dressy attire. Tuck the new dress or bowtie into the Easter basket for your kiddos. And make them match for as many years as they’ll agree to it. Matching Easter family outfits is just the most adorable.
2. Books Board books are fun for even your youngest children. And as your children become readers, keep gifting them new books to read. You could choose coloring books, sticker books, or chapter books.
3. Backyard and Driveway Toys Think bubbles, chalk, and a bouncy ball. Don’t stop there. You could add in a baseball bat and wiffle ball. Maybe a kite. Or even seeds and a mini shovel for garden fun.
Enjoy the spring season with your family. You’re ready for an afternoon of egg hunting fun and a Sunday morning of sweet Easter basket surprises.
