I’m not sure about you, but when I was a little, we only hid hard-boiled eggs for the annual Easter egg hunt. There was a year when a stray egg was found with our sniffers in May.
So old school, right?
Now that we’ve hit 2011, there are an array of plastic options. You can get pre-stuffed, polka-dotted, iridescent, golden, animal-printed, and camouflage plastic eggs (saw the camo variety at Target yesterday).
I admit that at my house, the Easter bunny has gone by way of plastic for the hunt. We find our glossy, near-neon pink, blue, and yellow eggs filled with bubble gum eggs, Nestle Crunch foiled chocolate eggs (my daughter’s favorite), jelly beans (Very Cherry Jelly Belly – my all-time favorite), Mike and Ike candies (my husband’s vice), and an occasional folded-up dollar (my son’s carrot).
I want to know what’s inside your Easter eggs for the hunt. Jelly beans, chocolate foiled eggs, toys, quarters, egg yolks? Lay it on me …
