I’ve committed a terrible sin against my son this year and asked people to steer clear of buying him too much chocolate. Not because I don’t believe in chocolate for kids. I believe in it as a genius bribe and distraction technique. But because at Easter there is always such an excess of chocolate, family, nursery, friends – everyone’s pelting chocolate eggs in his direction and he only ends up eating some of it, over that Easter weekend. And then do you know what happens? I eat it, well the good bits anyway. Yes, I eat his decent chocolate from the Easter Bunny (and from Santa as well). I know, I’m a terrible Mother. He’s only two, he can’t count past four, he’s doesn’t realise some are missing.
I also eat the cakes from his party bags, he never remembers.
So my plan this year is to stage an Easter Egg hunt for him using Aldi’s FREE Activity Egg Hunt Printable which you can find here. It contains pre-written clues and blank ones so you can make up your own. Plus some handy arrows and START and FINISH signs. I’m going to pick up some plastic coloured eggs and fill them with different treats, some will have little chocolates like the Mini Beanie Eggs from Aldi and some will contain Thomas Mini’s or Peppa Pig stickers.
Hopefully he wont get too much chocolate from the other Easter Bunny’s in his life, I don’t think my waist line could take it.
