I must admit that the Easter sort of slipped by as we just moved house yesterday. I still got 200+ boxes to open and just could not locate my Easter decoration. The store was out of any kind of Easter eggs, but luckily I had at least bought some chocolate bunnies in advance for the kids. Truth be told, I think it was me who was more upset of not getting the Cadbury’s Cream Eggs than the kids!
Anyway, we did a little Easter Egg hunt of our own once the snowing stopped – yes, can you imagine sub-zero temperature and snowing in England on March 31st – I certainly was not prepared for it. I mean it’s warmer in Finland than here. Talk about global warming…
So each child had their own trail with further stops hidden inside the plastic eggs – colour-coded for each child as they had same pit-stops during the course. Oh it was so much fun for everyone. Little, simple things bring lots of happiness.
The rewards are waiting for egg hunters – Lindt Easter Bunnies and Sheep
These little egg hunters are ready!
We made tailored clues for each child – pictures for the twins and a trail map for Miss A.

I spy the rack and my first eggs
Miss A. looking very determined
Looking for these maybe?
…and then happy after collecting her clues in eggs
Ok, which tree would this be?

Now where is the circle?

This is it – last clue collected. Ready to collect my choco bunny!
