Homeschool Egg Hunt

I knew we wouldn't be able to go to our church egg hunt this year, so I planned an allergen friendly ;) egg hunt for the homeschoolers in our church family.  It was so fun!  If I was faster and better with a camera...there were just so many sweet opps for pics!!

Before we left, I gave the kids their baskets...I may have gone a little over the top this year....

Lucy with her bunny...she had fallen in love with it at Hobby Lobby one day...

Iris with her bunny (which I would have NEVER picked out for her, being a baby blue puppet!) but she had also seen it and gone smitten  a while back.

Clyde and his bunny.  This boy ADORES his stuffed bunnies like you wouldn't believe...he has treasured all his bunnies he's gotten every year.  He loves this one's "soft, cuddly ears."

Then we went to the hunt!  I SO wish we had gotten a group picture!!  There were at LEAST nine families represented there!!  I was thrilled with the turn out and all the kids seemed thrilled as well.  The older kids graciously hid the eggs and the younger hunted :)

Then came examining the treasures.

We had girl egg fillers and boy egg fillers this year and that made it even more fun, instead of the weird stuff I've always used before, we got to do arrowheads, adhesive mustaches, bacon bandaids, venus fly trap seeds, etc for the boys, and embroidery floss, puzzle erasers, fuzzy stickers, slap bracelets, squinkies, etc for the girls.

There was a lot of excited trading among both girls...

and boys....
