Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail! It seems like yesterday we were talking about new years resolutions and now we are preparing for Easter. Easter is one of the holidays that I find some many different and unique traditions among my friends. For the most part I’ve kept the same traditions I grew up with as a child. Of course each year the kids get to dye their own Easter eggs. These days it is just Honey that does the dying as the boys, they are too old you know. We love to make colorful eggs and I found out a couple years ago how to make bright Easter eggs.
Another tradition of ours is attending the annual Easter Egg Hunt at our local park. Again the kids are too old (as in they really are too old to participate) but Honey has a blast running around collecting eggs and then anxiously opening each one hoping to have found the one with golden ticket!
In addition to our local Easter Egg Hunt we started our own tradition (totally by accident). The Easter Bunny leaves plastic eggs full of fun goodies around the house. This tradition started when my oldest son was just two so that would make it about a….14 year old tradition. Having decided to do a spur of the moment Easter Egg Hunt I had no idea that the following year my son would tell me that he couldn’t wait to find all the eggs the Easter Bunny was going to hide, and then a tradition was born.
Of course in addition to dying eggs and Easter Egg hunts Easter just wouldn’t be the same without some good old Easter candy. I received the amazing basket of goodies shown above to kick off our pre Easter celebration. The kids could not get enough of the JOLLY RANCHER jelly beans, in fact I’ve purchase a couple more bags! My favorite though definitely are the REESE’S White Peanut Butter Cups. I had NO IDEA they had white!
Since we had so much candy Honey and I decided this weekend to make some fun holiday treats! No special recipe simply whip up some cupcakes using a box of cake mix and decorate! However if you are looking for some fun Easter crafts of recipes I encourage you to check out CelebrateWithHersheys.com
