GIANT EASTER EGG HUNT: PERFECT FOR TODDLERS

GIANT EASTER EGG HUNT: PERFECT FOR TODDLERS

My daughter, Libby, is just close to a year and a half. With Easter coming up I wanted to do something special for the egg hunt this year. When I was a kid we would find hard boiled eggs around the house. This can be stinky if you end up forgetting about one. Plastic eggs are the perfect solution for hiding and sticking small treats inside. Libby is not quite ready for a full on egg hunt. I have been looking for ideas that would be perfect for her. Then alas, last night I stopped at the Dollar Tree and found these perfect jumbo eggs. They are $1 each per egg. I ended up getting four. I also stocked up on some sunglasses, which she loves, and other festive holiday finds. Since toddlers love to open things and explore, I thought it would be fun to make it like a Russian matryoshka doll (nesting doll, or doll inside a doll, inside a doll). So essentially, these are “Nesting Eggs.” An egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, with a jelly bean. Perfect for shaking, opening, and easily spotting. The smaller eggs I had left over from previous years, but the Dollar Tree has a huge selection.

Hiding the Eggs

After I filled the eggs,  I placed them in obvious places around the living room. To help her with finding them, I made a trail of small eggs that lead up to the big eggs. The garden wagon that I talked about in my Hello, Spring post, is perfect for Libby to use for collecting the eggs (when the time comes.)
