The city I live in hosts an egg hunt at the park. Also, my mom and her sisters throw an egg hunt. We also don't go for the candy thing so I also do little gifts (bubbles, sidewalk chalk, yeah - coloring books, etc.).

Our play group always hosts an egg hunt. Within our family for the actual day - I don't like to give my child a lot of candy - so I go for things like crayons and coloring books, reading books, arts & crafts ,etc.

Hey Sara,

Your daughter is now young enough to understand the significance of celebrations. So let her get into the festive mood by involving her in your Easter preparations. Sit with her on weekends and teach her some Easter crafts. This will increase her excitement for Easter along with boosting her creativity. Involve her in helping you decorate cookies, set up the table, and dye the eggs. Read her the Easter story book for a couple of days so that she knows what the celebration are all about. She might not understand all of them but at least she will remember all these till next year. Here are some Easter crafts that are meant for very young kids probably as old as your child. Hope this helps.

Our church holds a big egg hunt, so I take her to that. Also, we dye eggs together (she likes to choose which colors I dip the egg in) and I usually spend the ENTIRE afternoon with her the day before Easter having egg hunts in our yard. I don't give much candy either, mostly things like bubbles, colors, etc.

We've always done the hidden egg thing in our home for our daughter. She has a basket that usually contains a new outfit for spring, books, etc. The eggs are filled with treats--these treats don't have to be candy--and then left around the living room. This was a fun activity without the competition of other kids!

You can also take advantage of public Easter egg hunts in your community. Many organizations, churches in particular, host open events. Check to see what might be in your area! Hope this helps and good luck!

We've gone to my sis-in-laws the past 2 years but we lived 5 mins Down the road. Now we live an hour away. I'd still like to go there but hate the drive and I know my husband really does. Guess well see when that time comes.
