One of my favorite holidays to celebrate with the kids is Easter.
I know we haven’t even celebrated St. Patrick’s and I’m already talking bunnies and Easter eggs!
There are just so many fun Easter activities for kids that I thought I should start early.
This past week my kids and I had some Easter fun, we did a little activity I like to call reverse Easter egg hunting.
I’m sure you’re thinking – What is reverse Easter egg hunting?
Well, in regular Easter egg hunts you search for the eggs that are already filled with goodies.
In reverse Easter egg hunt you find things to fill your eggs!
This is a real simple activity that my kids just loved!
All you need to have your own reverse Easter egg hunt is a nice day and a dozen or so empty Easter eggs.
I gave the kids a few directions on what to fill their eggs with and set them free.
We gathered leaves, sticks, sand and seeds.
This activity can be fun for older kids too!
One way is to have them find colorfully things that match their eggs.
My kids were pretty proud of their findings and loved showing them off.
Once they filled one egg they would grab another and start the hunt all over again.
We had a blast with our reverse Easter egg hunt!
I’m sure we will have many more ‘hunts’ before the big one at the end of the month!
