SOLC 27 of 31: Easter Tradition

Although they are 11 and 9, and one of them doesn’t believe in Santa or the Easter bunny anymore, they still look forward to our Easter tradition of going on a treasure hunt through the house, following clues hidden in plastic eggs and finding an Easter Basket filled with goodies at the end.

I love that they love this. It’s adorable  how they wake up so excited (just like on Christmas) and can’t wait to find the first clue. We done this for 4 or 5 years now and it seems to have really taken hold in our house – so much so that this year, when I told the kids that we’d be at the beach house instead of our house, my son, who’s 9, almost had a meltdown over missing the Easter Egg Treasure Hunt.  I told him that the Easter bunny would be able to do the Treasure Hunt at the beach house – so not to worry. Phew, that helped!

One year, they had been staying at my parents the night before Easter and insisted on waking early and returning to our house early just for the Easter Egg Treasure Hunt.

It’s not easy to create fun traditions that take hold. This is one that we created and I just love that the kids just love it. I hope it’s one that they keep for their own kids.

    I am sure that they will continue the tradition with you and their children.
