I am so excited to present this post to all of you.
After writing my last post, I couldn’t get Easter egg hunts out of my head! I decided that my last lesson, before Spring Break, would be all about Easter! My last lesson is with our special needs students, and what better way to end the week than with an Easter Egg Hunt! The kids are going to be so surprised! I can’t wait!
I have been so excited about doing this! I started researching cute and fun ideas on Pinterest and I found some doozies! With the help of Fun-A-Day.com and her cool bunny bags, and A Mom’s Take, with her cute idea to spice up the hunt, AND Life As Mom with her cute idea to have yokes inside the egg that serves as money to trade for some cool loot! My mind was blown with all the ideas readily available! I put together what would work best for me, and ran with it!
Did I mentioned I also had balloons? 🙂
I put together these cute bags. I mentioned them in my last Currently post. They were a hit, even though they looked more like mice than bunnies! 🙂
I handed the kids their scavenger hunt sheets to follow. We reviewed these before we started the hunt. Each person could get 6 eggs; One of each color. (Blue egg pic did not come out right). I made sure to place the same treat in the same corresponding egg. You can see from the pictures what I mean. I wanted to make sure that each of them received the same things so no one would feel slighted.
After the hunt, everyone was able to open their eggs to see their treats and turn in their yolk money for prizes. I had a host of fun things for them to choose from. From sidewalk chalk to bubbles and a few coloring packets, too!
I wish I could share their pics with you, but I can tell you we had a lot of fun! I received a lot of hugs and thank-yous for this event!
What are some fun ideas you’ve done for an Easter egg hunt?
