This Easter why not think out of the box and instead of filling all of those eggs with chocolatey treats, try some PlayDoh instead! If you haven’t done your shopping yet (Only 2 days left!!) these are a great filler for those over sized baskets! Now, I’m not saying omit the chocolate all together, no egg hunt is complete without a chocolatey treat at the end. But instead off all things chocolate, lets switch it up a bit this year.
My kids (at least my oldest) is always looking forward to the Easter egg hunt this time of year. He loves the candy, the chocolate, the spring toys that usually show up this time of year. But this year I struggled with ideas. He already has badminton rackets and horse shoes, jumping ropes and sidewalk chalk. I really didn’t know what to get for him. Ben has always leaned to the artistic side though, so new crayons and markers, and a lot of Playdoh will make his Easter exciting!
I enjoy using Playdoh for treats for more than just Easter. (I use those fab mini Playdoh containers at Hallowe’en too) Anything that helps nurture my kids creative side is ok with me!
Among other things, this year our Pirate themed Easter egg hunt will have some fabulous treasures! Including lots of pastel PlayDoh eggs, even some Playdoh characters…and this fun Mr Potato Head! He’s Easterriffic!
How do you avoid the chocolate rush over holidays? I’d love to hear your ideas!
