I like to party. I do.
It helps keep us social.
(And our house clean!)
For the past four? years
I've had an Easter Egg Hunt Party
for Bebe and her friends. I guess
another reason I have parties
for her is because she doesn't
have any siblings
to play with.
I think I am off to a good start with the pre-party prep.
Using an old artist's board that had age spots
on it, I decided to make my own
"Egg Hunt Party" sign instead of buying one.
I've enlisted the hubs to make a stake
for it...should look fun and inviting as guests arrive!
For another post I will have to share my new
craft table that is in our new craft space.
Bebe and I have been enjoying it immensely!
I've even had a craft day with my gal pals.
More on that later though!
Back to the party prep!
This was last year's set up. I like to have a big table and big display
outside as long as the weather is nice. April can be tricky!
I save that large tin vase and hanging eggs
in my basement every year so I can use it again.
This year I may have start fresh with a new arrangement
because Bebe found the bag of eggs I use
and started taking out all of the strings and buttons.
(Place a button inside with the
string attached and the string won't fall out.)
This is the food area, inside. We munch on snacks
while the Dad's are outside hiding the eggs.
I also had a decorate your own goodie bag
activity to keep the kids busy.
This is a pizza tray sized pink lemonade cookie with homemade
icing and confetti sprinkles. It was delicious!
I think it is a Pillsbury cookie mix. Big hit.
Here are some of the kids on the hunt.
(With the Hubs
getting a kick out of it supervising!)
This was the bucket of last year's champ...
I found an awesome "Champion" medal of honor at the
craft store. It worked perfectly as the "Grand Prize."
And I take a play off of "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" by placing "Golden Tickets" inside random eggs, that way, the fastest egg finder isn't the only one who wins a prize.
I have a lot of fun setting it up and the kids have a great time hunting.
This may be the last year though... what age does it not become fun anymore?
Tough question, because I still think it is fun!
