Easter Egg Hunt Preparation & Execution

Knowing that the idea of hunting Easter Eggs would be completely lost on Jeremiah and Rachel, we decided to have a practice run. With Caleb as a very reliable teacher, we knew they were in good hands. First, we hid for Caleb. Jeremiah and Rachel were mesmerized watching him hunt for the eggs. They each got an individual turn, and then we did one big hunt all together. They enjoyed hiding the eggs for each other to find too. All three of them were so precious!

With some practice runs under their belt, they were ready for the real deal at church. As you can see from the pics, they truly grasped the concept and ended up doing quite well. Although, the biggest thrill came from learning there were goodies inside the eggs. How could Mommy and Daddy have left the key ingredient out? CANDY!!!! They were exceptionally compliant when told to dump their loot and return the plastic eggs to use for next year.
