Happy Easter Toddlers!

I’ve been contemplating whether I’d take the kids to Easter egg hunts in hotels or malls this year. But then I remembered our experience last year when I took them to the Easter egg hunt in Edsa Shangri-La Hotel. There were A LOT of kids! The entire Isla ballroom was packed! Then come easter egg hunt time, it was just crazy. Kids and parents were shoving each other. So I decided not to do that this year.  But don’t get me wrong, it was an experience for them to be exposed to that setup as well as dress up in animal costumes as that was the hotel’s theme.  But 300-400 kids was just too big of a crowd for my toddlers.

I also considered the egg hunt in Podium but when I found out yesterday that there were 200 kids, I was more decided to make one of our own and not go through the same experience last year 🙂

Why?

1. My kids won’t be shoved from one side to the other. Given that they are helpless compared to the bigger kids.

2. I have control of what the prizes are. Meaning I’m sure they’ll love the prizes in each egg.

3. I’m sure they’ll get more than 1 egg! (Chesca only got 1 egg from last year and Lexi none!)

4. Saves a ton of money!

5. Less stress 🙂  I don’t have to help them look for eggs!

So there you have it, gives me more reason to have a simple Easter egg hunt just for us.

What did I do, you ask?

I got some of the kids' plastic eggs and put their favorite things inside. Marshmallows and Oreos inside the big eggs. M&M's, Skittles, and stickers inside the small eggs.

I also included our nannies and helpers in the hunt and prepared a little something for them. I put several 20 peso bills in colored makeshift envelopes.  I will hide them after the kids’ egg hunt and let them have their own Easter egg hunt.  A little something to de-stress, relax, and enjoy as well.

My kids are very easy to please and just with these simple items, they'll have a blast! The picture on the right are colored index cards I cut in half and made into Easter envelopes to put the 20 peso bills.
Time to hide the egss!

I’ll keep you posted on the turn out of our little “make-our-own” Easter egg hunt experience.

Gotta go and hide the eggs while the kids are eating lunch.

What are you doing this Easter?  Maybe you can do one of your own egg hunts as well!

Happy Easter!
