All the kids decorated paper sacks for our egg hunt- a neat trick I learned from another mom, there was the same number of eggs for each child, and every egg had a symbol on it. Mimi's sack had a smiley face, and so she picked up all her smiley face eggs. And so on. It makes the hunt last a little longer, and puts big and little kids on a more even playing field. Plus, I didn't have to *hide* 60 eggs, I could drop clumps of eggs in the corners and on chairs, and it was just as fun. All of Ernie's friends have siblings about Mimi's age, so these parties always end up being two in one. It's hard to keep two distinct age groups occupied with the same activities! We ended with sandwiches cut into fancy shapes, slices of apple, and fancy "ice cream parfaits" just like in Ernie's "Fancy Nancy" cookbook.
Happy Spring everyone!
