I hope this blog post finds you kicking up your heels and enjoying your Friday however you want. I plan to spend the day coloring Easter eggs with my boys. I've never been much of an artist. Seriously, my kids stick people are better than mine. But I do look forward to getting creative with the eggs. I love double dipping and making them two different colors. And how fun is it to use that neato little wax crayon to write a secret message then dip your egg to reveal it. Okay, so I'm easily amused.
We don't use our real eggs for the hunt though. I use them to make egg salad, which is awesome if I do say so myself. This year I bought a glow-in-the-dark egg hunt kit which includes two tiny flashlights. It should be fun trying to help the kids hunt them down after it gets dark. And the really fun thing about the plastic eggs is all the candy inside.And Easter wouldn't be complete without a hollow chocolate bunny with those delicious candy eyes. I really not much of a chocolate person normally but those bring back such good memories that I always have to buy one.
How about you, did you hunt "real" eggs or plastic eggs when you were little? Do you have a favorite candy?
