My younger sister and I were going to do an easter egg hunt in our parent’s yard. All I had to do wash show up with baskets (check!), eggs (check!) and candy (oops!).
I checked my wallet for coins and put as many coins as I had in eggs. Coins are great because the kids are stoked about them and they aren’t chocolate, so they don’t melt. For the remainder of the eggs, I decided to do little notes – similar to a fortune cookie.
You could make them funny, like “Aunt Amy’s feet stink” or messages of love, or even religious messages.
Anyway, thought I would share in case any of you find yourselves with eggs and no candy.
Crisis averted. Whew! (I guess I should note that this only worked because my sister had some eggs with candy, so the kids got, candy, notes and coins.)
