last year i showed you our traditional easter egg hunt. this year we did a similar one, but with the main difference that WE prepared the eggs, not me on my own, as has always happened until now, because my daughter wanted to participate in all stages of the hunt. we tried out a new recipe for homemade play doh using lemon juice instead of cream of tartar (which i’d run out of and couldn’t find again in time) which i’d recently seen on the wonderful blog quando fuori piove. (and i’ll add that it had the best results of any other recipe i’ve tried til now!) and then we also made these “rock” crayons made from beeswax, soap and food coloring (a bit annoying to make, as we don’t have a microwave oven and doing it over the stovetop was very long. then they don’t even color very well, so i won’t be making those again!).
we cut up the modelling clay, and put the pieces and the rock-crayons inside the eggs and then filled up the rest with candies (recycled, i admit, from the many candies people have given the kids), stickers, erasers, etc. easter morning i hid the 91 eggs in our living room (we’d wanted to do it outside, but it rained all morning), the five kids ran here and there picking them up, they opened them, they traded and then they all played together. we all had a great time. here’s a photo-story of our morning:
we don’t respect just traditions from the united states in our family, but also italian ones. we couldn’t leave out the mega chocolate eggs with a surprise inside!
what did you do for easter this year?
