Kids love it, parents, not so much! You know what I’m talking about…..all the candy at Easter (and Halloween). This year I was trying to think outside the egg (ha, get it??) and not fill all the eggs with candy. I usually put coins in some and stickers. But this year, I tried to think of something that I knew they would *love*. Legos. Yup, I bought color coded eggs for them to hunt. Each color will have pieces to their Lego set (note: I bought these bigger sets, but I am going to save them for a rainy day and go buy smaller sets).
For you cynics out there, yes, I’m still going to fill some eggs with candy. Just not every one. And knowing my Lego crazed kids, I think they’ll be even happier to have Legos than candy. Really.
