Our first ever Easter Egg Hunt

This Easter we had our first ever Easter Egg Hunt. Our little one is still just 22 months, and doesn't understand anything about Easter or Easter Eggs. She does understand everything about chocolates though and loves them... 

We hadn't planned on any Hunts, but as her older cousins had one at Nanny's garden she tagged along like a big girl.

First she helped hide the Easter Eggs. I was so proud how well she was helping her Auntie along. Picking up the little Lindt Mini Eggs and dropping them in the garden shrubbery with shrieks of joy. Under neath the trees, in the bushes, on the grass, everywhere. And picked them up again, and threw them on the ground again. As you do.

After some of the older cousins got a head start she got into looking for the Eggs too. I do have to admit, she was more interested in picking up a single Lindt Mini Egg and scooting it around the garden with a trolley than eating it or finding any more. She was also particularly keen on hiding that said Egg in the boot of a little tricycle. But she did find a few of them (with a little help from me) and proceeded to hide all of her newly-found treasures in the tricycle boot. Bless.

Her older cousins did graciously divide the spoils of the Egg hunt and give her her fair share. Which I do have to admit, were mostly eaten by Mummy later that day. She is just 22 months, it would be terrible to give her too much chocolate, wouldn't it? (It's much better Mummy sacrifices herself... Isn't it?)

Next year when she understands Easter a bit better, and is probably as much of a chocolate-fiend as her mother, I bet our Easter Egg Hunt is going to be quite an event. I am already looking forward to it - it will be so much fun!

Did you have an Easter Egg Hunt and how did it go?

    1. It was lots of fun! Yeah, I think at this age they are a little too young to understand what it's all about, but I am sure next year both mine and yours will be much more interested in the whole thing :) Thanks :)

  2. Aw, she looks like she loved it.

    We didn't have one at home, although N set his own one up a couple of days before (and promptly forgot about it so I keep finding random eggs around the house). He and his cousins had one at my sister in law's house after the big family Easter meal. He found the one hidden in a muddy puddle so his trainers are vile now.

    1. Hah ha, that sounds quite nice, finding a bit of chocolate every once in a while, would definitely cheer me up! :) Too bad about the trainers - that is one weird place to hide eggs in... But he was obviously committed to the hunt :D

  3. Looks like a lovely egg hunt! My little girl had just turned two last year, but I have to admit she got it... Perhaps it's having two big brothers :) This year all three had a fab time. Love that she took that single egg for a walk! #countrykids

    1. Yeah, it was really nice, and taking a single egg for a walk was weird, but quite funny. She wasn't interested in eating at all, just taking it around :D I guess kids learn these things earlier when they have older siblings to look up to and run around with :) Glad you had a good time!

    1. I've heard of the National Trust hunts, apparently they are really good. Maybe in years to come, when our little one is big enough to battle it out with the big kids :)

  6. That sounds like a lovely family get together, it's great that it seems like Mini was more interested in hiding the eggs than eating them. I think it's important to sacrifice ourselves to save our children eating too much chocolate, we can handle it! It sounds so cute that she found one and was content to wander around the garden with it. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

    1. I know - self-sacrifice is what Mothers do best, isn't it! :D

      She does love chocolate, but it was quite funny she wasn't that bothered about these eggs. Glad she had fun hiding them and taking them for walks though, that is enough of Easter Egg hunting going on. Thanks for hosting!

    1. Aww thank you, she wasn't too bad finding them either once she got around to it :)

  9. How adorable she is! Good for you, taking the brunt of it, eating the candy so it would upset her belly, or give her zits or cavities. You deserve the best mom of the year award! Glad that you had a great time!

    1. I was very impressed by that - kids don't usually like to share their chocolates do they :) Thanks for hosting :)

    1. I think the older you get the better it gets - the more fun you have out of eating the chocolate :D I can't wait when she actually gets excited about the whole thing :)

    1. That must have been fun! It really is quite special when you get to do something like this for the first time (was a first time for me too, never done an Easter egg hunt before myself!)
