Our Easter Egg Hunt 2017

This year at Easter we are away visiting Family. Although i'm sure we will be doing plenty of easter egg hunts at Easter I wanted to do an early one for Lily at Home. But typically on the day that I choose to do the hunt on it decides to rain. Not all hope was lost. I knew that if at least I could get a break from the rain we could go into our small front garden and do a little egg hunt. Luckily that was the case and at around 3pm the rain stopped. 

I went out and hid 6 little eggs with bunnies so Lily could easily find them. It was as much of a bunny hunt as Easter egg hunt. I hid them in the plants and the bushes and in a few easy places like our windowsil where Lily would easily find them. On went the welly boots, on went our coats and Easter baskets in hand out we went! Lily was very excited. 





Lily did really well at spotting the bunnies. She first found the one in the flower pot. But she wasn't to keen on the idea of pulling it out as the weeds growing in it were very wet. So mummy had to get it out for her. The second one she spotted was up in the bushes, which again she didn't want to reach out as didn't want wet hands. She is a little bit of a softie when it comes to things like getting wet. 




She was super excited to have found some and so when I handed her the eggs she put them in her basket. She then said more eggs and so I encouraged her to look for more bunnies. Eventually she found one down in some plants and then on the windowsil. It wasn't long before Lily had all her eggs in her basket and was so excited at how many she had found.




The egg hunt didn't last long. 10 minutes at the most but she loved every second of it. We then went inside and I let her eat one of her eggs. It just shows that you have got to make the most of what you have got and any little activity can be fun. 

Did you do an Easter egg hunt?

  3. Using the bunnies is such a good idea! We didn't have an egg hunt at home, but my daughter had one during holiday club and on Easter Sunday at church. I did one for her in our front garden last year. She enjoyed it.

  7. Oh bless her, she looks like she enjoyed herself. We did our Easter Egg hunt yesterday and it was quite funny as the children had 10 eggs each to find and they both found 8 and none of us could actually find the other 2 each they had for ages. They really enjoyed it

  14. What a great idea using the bunnies to mark the eggs. We didn't do an egg hunt with my little girl because she went on one with her nan whilst we were working and I didn't want to overload her with yet more chocolate. I'm sad I missed out though x

  16. Aww what a cutie!! My son is only 20 months and doesn't get the Easter concept quite yet so decided not to do any hunts. Love how your daughter is scared to get her hands in and wet, that's adorable! I'm a big believer in whatever the weather so good on you for just getting on with it!! #countrykids

  21. Well done, she looks thrilled with her egg haul and the little bunnies are lovely. We did a little hunt in our ride on play area for all our younger holiday guests then a giant one across the farm for the older children. They are always lots of fun, after all who doesn't like searching for chocolate? I think you will be in for another hunt next year.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

  22. No. Easter Egg Hunt hasn't been a family tradition for us. Though your Easter Egg Hunt looks good, and I may consider something similar in the future. We went to a gathering held by church Minister, we met up top of a hill, dawn ( cloudy this year. Though have done this previously, and it is really lovely to watch the SunRise. Especially as a group at Easter, also Beautiful view when weather allows / permits). Short Service held, thereafter we went to church hall to have Breakfast together :- Delightful. Nice to spend time sharing Refreshments, having a chat etc.

  24. Those bunnies are really cute! I try and do one with Monkey each year, he always asks for it and I am sure one of hi earliest memories involves finding hidden chocolate as he was quite young the first time we did it. Gorgeous photos x #CountryKids
