Yes, I know it’s a little late to be sharing hints for Easter, but I just heard this idea from my grandmother on Sunday, and I thought it would be a good one for WFMW. If you think it’s a good idea too, you can file it away for next year’s Easter Egg hunts.
So, next year, my husband and I are going to assign colors to each one of the kids. For instance, Samuel will hunt for blue and green eggs, lil Allan will hunt for yellow and orange, and Martha will hunt for purple and pink. This will help alleviate the issues with the age gaps (they will be 7, 4, and 2) and keep the boys from rushing to get all the eggs before Martha has a chance. It makes it a true HUNT, instead of an egg finding frenzy.
Now, if you have just a couple of kids with small age gaps, this may not be all that necessary, but my husband and I, we liked the idea and we think it will work for us.
What works for you? Be sure to post about it, and link up over at Shannon’s blog.
