I'm planning an Easter Egg hunt for the little girls and went to Walmart yesterday to see what kind of toys I could find that would fit in eggs. I don't want to load them down with candy since they will be getting a lot in their baskets. (There will be some eggs with candy in the hunt)
The things I found were...
prepacked eggs with my little pony minis (6)
prepacked eggs with Littlest Pet Shops (6)
Hair clips (3)
bracelets (3)
rings (3)
matchbox cars (4)

It didn't seem like I was finding much in the store but now that I'm home and counted up how many eggs they will make, I think I'm fine. They are only 3 (almost) and I don't want to overwhelm them.
I think we decided yesterday that a book, dvd, and novelty type candy was going to go in the baskets.

Is anyone else planning a hunt with their kids??

for one Easter..I did an egg hunt for my husband LOL I put 1 egg by the door with a note in it leading to the next egg and so on, it was more of an adult egg hunt but it was fun. I wouldn't mind doing it this year too... our 3 year wedding anniversary falls a week before easter so yea..that is a lot to do ^_^

I can't wait until I have kids so I can actually have a real easter egg hunt with cute little toys in the eggs... I don't plan on doing candy since my brother ( when he was a kiddo) got a HUGE easter basket full of candy and also did an egg hunt that was candy only and he decided to eat ALL the candy that day...Now my bro hates all candy LOL poor guy got sick...but yes if I had kids I would also do cute little toys etc.

Shane's Aunt has an Easter dinner every year at her house, and she makes up eggs for our two nices and nephew.

I would like for Logan to participate in the hunt, but I think the older three will let him get like two or three for himself so I dunno.

When we have easter egg hunts with alot of kids we tell them how many eggs they are allowed to find. Only because it isn't fair to the youngest kid. Then they each get to find one BIG egg that has 5.00 in it.

With Christian & Kel we do themed eggs and they know which ones to hunt for. We do one here at home and one at my parents house.
