Zach's pre-school had an Easter egg hunt. It was a little different. They had all the eggs scattered around the playground and the grass, but they were empty. Which to Zach meant, don't pick them up. He was looking for some loot! So while all the other kids were filling their baskets full of eggs Zach kept running around picking up the eggs, but throwing them back down on the ground after discovering they were empty. Later we all went inside the school and found out that the eggs the kids picked up determined what order they could pick out their prize and get their bag full of candy(to make it fair). Not such a bad idea after it was all said and done.
This is Justin, one of Zach's favorite friends from school.
The day before Easter we dyed Easter eggs at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Zach was very involved in the dying.
With all these fun activities we of course will not forget the true meaning behind Easter, and will hopefully be able to help our kids understand why we celebrate Easter. At the dinner table, before we blessed the food, Justin asked Zach why we celebrated Easter, and Zach's response was "The Easter Bunny!" I couldn't help but feel like a failure as a parent, but I guess better luck next year.
